Kid, you're exactly the sort of faux-macho chest-beater that necessitates feminism in the first place, every time you decide to go off on one of your alpha-male scent-markings.
If you wanna be part of the big boy club, don't go being offended because they expect you to act like an adult.

I'm offended by the original poll option and absolutely disgusted by this response. And I do possess a penis. Not that it should matter, but for some reason you seem immensely preoccupied with your fellow developers' genitalia.
