That's the thing about bias. It says, "I'm already sure there's no problem here," and then someone says "seriously, can we look at this? I think there's a problem", and bias says, "No, there's no problem, we already know that, what is wrong with you?".

in thread How many man-hours would you estimate you have invested in learning Perl?
When Perl throws an error message in a program you're "sure" is correct, how do you treat that? Do you ignore it because you're already sure that everything's fine? Or do you actually investigate until you know why the error was thrown?
Let me explain why I'm throwing an error here.
There is no reason to use the phrase "patriarchal pig" on Perlmonks unless you are a) ineptly attempting to call out someone for abusing privilege which you see as stemming from their being male, or b) using it as a dog-whistle to send the message "nudge-nudge, wink-wink, oh those silly women and their silly ideas about male privilege!". The poll writer was not a member of (a), therefore it seems likely that he was going for meaning (b). His non-apology to us "flakes" seems to confirm my conclusion.
The fact that you literally cannot believe that patriarchy exists at all surprises me. If you live in an equal society, does it not seem then that one "equal" group its taking the mickey out on another here? Isn't that wrong in an equal society, that one group should belittle another?
I'm just trying to understand what it is exactly you are trying to say here.
