Disappointed to read more disgusting articles
getting back to the #FSF
This time an open letter signed by a bunch of people in the "open source" demands that "all members of the FSF board should be removed". This is ridiculous bullshit.
I'd like to remind everyone how this shitstorm started:
Stallman resigned after the leak of emails about Jeffrey Epstein's sex trafficking of a minor, in which Stallman objected to the use of the word "assaulting" and called it "morally absurd to define 'rape' in a way that depends on minor details such as which country it was in or whether the victim was 18 years old or 17."
The article goes on saying:
Stallman "recommended that, should someone find out they are pregnant and the child tests positive for Down's syndrome, 'the right course of action for the woman is to terminate the pregnancy.'" The page also said that "RMS has spent years on a campaign against using people's correct pronouns. This is poorly disguised transphobia."
They're really scraping the bottom of the barrel looking for anything
that, presumably, should make him look bad. Not sure how that has anything to do with free software either, nor what would be the connection with replacing the whole board of directors. If anything, this attack
is the poorly disguised attempt at dismantling the FSF.
"RMS has a history of mistreating women and making them feel uncomfortable, unsafe, and unwelcome,"
. This "history of mistreating women" amounts to a single blog post written by a random MIT student, Selam Gano who openly admits getting paid to blog. I haven't heard of any other source of evidence of this "mistreating behaviour", aside from some random and frankly weak tweets. The most prominent seems to be one presenting the writing on Stallman's business card "Tender embraces
" as proof of him mistreating and making women feel "uncomfortable, unsafe and unwelcome".
I, for one, would really love to know who
is behind this Selam Gano person and who she accepted money from.
