I'm a female, something of a nerd and yes, a feminist (and even as I write this, I can FEEL the number of eyes rolling at that statement).

This is a precision example of where this kind of "joke" goes.

Because you, the original poster, think making this kind of joke is hilarious, you've painted everyone else on Perlmonks as thinking this kind of crap is OK.

Here we have a potential contributor, and supported of Perl, who now feels like we're a bunch of exclusionist jerks who think diversity is dumb - and therefore Perl programmers as a whole think this way too.

Don't argue that she's being too sensitive. If someone essentially says, "I don't like people like you," it goes in no matter how "tough" you are - and it sure doesn't make you want to hang out with the person who says it - and it absolutely creates a bad association at an emotional level (for both men and women - there are no Vulcans or machine intelligences here).

So congratulations! You've made great strides in convincing someone else that Perl programmers are elitist, insensitive dicks who like their boys club and don't want anyone who isn't just like them around.
