Calm down. It's just a joke.
You may not think its funny, and that it is politically incorrect. But having this option
is in no way implying that perlmonks is supporting racism or genderism.
Look at some of the other options. They also make fun on certain social groups. E.g.
- Thanks to Scalosian water ...: What a mean play on people who think that Star Trek is reality ... we should be ashamed!
- ... so I get the maximum return on my investment: Looking at many postings here, people who only want to learn as few perl possible, in order to maximize their ROI, are not treated with respect at all
- More time than I've spent learning basic social skills: It is so easy to mock nerds. And so mean, because they never take revenge.
In fact, there is no option a normal monk can chose, without being insulted being obsessive (last answer), snobbish (5th answer) or a noob (4th answer). If you judge
perlmonks by just this poll, obviously no-one is welcome (except possibly bots).
So please don't take this poll seriously, and don't get enraged by that option.
I don't see the need of a some-monks-are-discriminated-because-of-their-gender-we-need-to-end-this-discussion.
So long and have fun!
