Re: dame_gender

No, no, no. You’re looking for a woman’s free labor for an inherently, irreparably sexist and transphobic project.

Let me reiterate and expand on my earlier statement: this tool does not account for gender nonconforming individuals, and erases trans people who are closeted. This will not help tech’s diversity problem, this will only perpetuate it. 

The only useful data to be gathered from contributors’ names are the contributors’ names. 

You cannot tell someone’s gender by their name. 

Before continuing with this project, I recommend you do more research on the topic of gender. There are many existing writings on this topic from transgender and gender noncomforming people, just waiting for you to learn and grow from them. 

Please remove me from future replies.

Wishing improve in gender equity in the internal of the project, I want request collaboration (not remunerated) of a woman to generate a Docker virtual machine for Damegender. It was a pull request done by a Python Barcelona member, but it's not maintained.

Then it's a sex identifier more than a gender identifier.

I speak spanish. If I can help you with anything (non-technical), send me an e-mail.
