Jonathan Walther was a member of the Debian project from 1998 to 2006. He has very conservative and traditional views of women. It is unknown how he convinced a feminist activist to marry him.
- "Living in the Bay Area, I've seen far too many women whose claims of worth are VASTLY overrated. I know Deirdre isn't one of those, because I've met her, but your average Bay Area girl asking for a huge salary is blowing smoke up the sucker (bosses) ass, and getting away with it by a combination of fear of equal opportunity litigation, and plain old sex appeal. As well as the massive male-neutering that the universities that infest the area perform."
- He was also involved in the Debian IRC sexism thread, and called a troll by several people who disagreed with his views.
