I was certainly brash in my rant but the ASF and the computer industry 
as a whole is too misogynistic.  I'd like us to be more open.  My sister 
"hides" using Sam instead of Samantha to trick people into assuming she 
is male due to issues she has encountered.  I'd like that not to happen.

So if you see a critical error with my proposed plan to order the 
bracelets with the ASF Feather (see thread), please be more specific as 
I purposefully delayed the order a day to make sure it wasn't too 
offensive.  Though in reverse bias, I have deferred more strongly to the 
input of the XY chromosome holders as it is important for this to be 
supportive but not offensive to those we are trying to support.
