I am glad you posted those logs. Now I see I was right, this whole
thing is blown way out of proportion.
Finally read these. Actually, there's very little there. I expect
there's more, for a channel the size of #debian.
exhibit_a - Looks like sarcasm to me, given the HOWTO link paste early
on. Hard to tell from a log. It wouldn't seem as sexist without the
editorialising in the log IMO.
exhibit_b - Hard to tell about this, as they're all fairly short
snips. Lots of apparent sexism, including by helix, which I hope only
looks like that because of the editing.
exhibit_c - Yep, rehm is wrong, although not as soon as some think
(I've seen straight men make comments about sleeping with men on IRC),
but wtf does it turn into a trolling match at one point? If he's so
damn offensive, why invite him to continue? niwton also seems sexist.
