(Forgot to add [ADMIN] to the subject line)

Ascribing the characteristics of one individual to an entire gender is
unacceptable in a thinking persons world.

Blaming lack of ability or participation on gender when social bias is
clearly present is also unacceptable.

That sort of thinking is so fundamentally flawed that it boarders on
insanity. I won't be part of a group where that is accepted. Mr. Crowcroft
will leave the PICList or I will. I appreciate the corrective feedback from
a few members, but I'd like to know if anyone else agrees with Mr. Crowcroft
on this point. The list members should decide which way they want this list
to go. Either sexism is not accepted and I will police it, or it is accepted
and I will have a good excuse to stop spending my time on this.

If you feel that women are just not able to handle guns and engineering:

If you feel that making sexist remarks should not be tolerated:

Notice the lack of a "calm down" option. <SAD GRIN>
