in thread How many man-hours would you estimate you have invested in learning Perl?

I agree with pemungkah on this one. It's a strident and wildly inaccurate attempt at a joke on feminism, and further implies that the straw feminist would then go on to continue bitching about something or other, seemingly irrelevant to the discussion at hand. 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). As such, I will simply say that the "...you patriarchal pig..." comment does a disservice to this entire community, male AND female, by further alienating a group of people that are among your greatest assets and champions.

    Nice one sockpuppet troll. Brand new account made just to make this post.
      Would you like to know why I created an account? So that I would be posting with a name instead of hiding behind a cloak of cowardly anonymity. That is all.

    You know, I didn't :) I'm of the opinion that almost ever guy on here is a feminist, even the joke poster/defenders

    Funny thing is ... straw or not ... that's exactly what happened. I say the joke was spot on.

    Enjoy the last years of Rome.

      Aha.

      Please, can you show me where in the thread someone called the author a patriarchical pig? Or something comparably insulting?

      So the joke is discrediting feminists by putting the word pig in their mouths. (If that was the intent of the joke, one can discuss - well, if one is able to discuss)
      People complain, without insulting.
      The joke defenders:
      insult the ones who complain,
      tell them how they have to feel,
      and in the end make that a proof that the joke is actually right.

      I'm missing that proof.
