in thread Omigawd! Surprised by Reality!

However, I think you do them a disservice when you treat them as being as odd as a three-legged talking cow. "if one can have a top-flight woman programmer then one can have" <something totally unrelated> is almost the same as saying "If a woman can do that, so could anyone."

What a wonderful example of how if one bends over backwards to try and be offended then one can find offense anywhere.

The stereotype is that hackers are young and male. A successful female hacker and a successful middle-aged hacker have both overcome the tendency to internalize this stereotype. That is why a successful female hacker can inspire a successful middle-aged male one.

"if one can have a top-flight woman programmer then one can have" <something totally unrelated>"
Run this by me again. Being a middle-aged hacker is "something totally unrelated" to being a female hacker? Really?

[Copacetic]: Sorry, I've just discovered that it gives a useful error message if I select "preview" (as well as removing the "create" button for some reason). It was that my title wasn't long enough. Thanks for your help.
