What is Adobe talk at PHP UK? I went googling pretty hard and found that there had been a presentation from them, but couldn't find any comments on it having sexist content. The conference has not yet made video of presentations available, so it's hard to tell if there was some off-hand comment as part of it, or what. --Skud 16:23, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

2010-07 Eric S. Raymond tackles the subject of sexism in tech without realizing he is the problem being discussed. Edit

I was surprised that this Eric S. Raymond post and following discussion was not listed in the timeline. It's very similar to the more recent Dave Winer post. Figured it belongs in the list but I am too shy to add it:

Sadly typical stuff for the most part. Highlight is probably the part when he hits on one of the female commenters.

2014-03 Sexual Abuse and YouTube Creators Edit

This year there have been a large amount of new accusations, and at least one arrest, of YouTube Creators for everything from child pornography, rape, to just being horrible people to the woman that they're dating. I've been reading these accounts and been mildly horrified to see these things said about people that made things that I enjoyed.

It seems like it should go here, but I was not sure that it was part of your goals. It seemed to me to be right for here, though, since it's definitely a reflection of rape culture. It's definitely a case of geek culture, because they used their position in the geek culture of YouTube (or "Wizard Rock" or other such communities), and I'd just thought I'd put it here and see if someone wanted to tackle what seems important.

If someone would like to write it up, please do... I don't feel like it's my story to tell.

(As a side note:  at least one of the stories is a man preying on another man, only tangential to your mission but proof that rape culture is not only harmful to women.)
