pemungkah, shetech, tinita, and schwern: As a woman in the PerlMonks community, I am not offended by the "I refuse to acknowledge the term man hours" option which seems to target a specific type of woman. As with every other poll hosted here, I see them all as tongue-in-cheek humor. If I were to get offended by every instance of this kind of humor on the web, I would be in a straight jacket or have had a heart attack by now. I will not try to divine punch_card_don's intent with the option. Has anyone asked him why he included it and if he meant any offense by it?

I am for gender equality, so do not think for a moment I would allow myself or other women to be degraded in a serious discussion nor would most of the people here in my experience. If a woman were attacked for being a woman, I know in my heart the administration would take immediate action. I have never had any trouble being a woman on PerlMonks.

So, please do not get offended by something so inconsequential as a poll on PerlMonks. As for me, I do not have the energy to get so worked up over it. I am going to go back to writing more perl and talking in the Chatterbox.

PS. The only drawback I have encountered being a woman on PerlMonks is newbies who like to send me private messages for help eschewing the guys. I am definitely not as nice as some of the guys here, and more importantly, I do not know as much as they do. Why is it newbies come to me first?

Have a cookie and a very nice day!
