The thing that really strikes me about Open Source Boob Gate* is its echoes with the previous discussions about the SF community’s groping problem. What a tin-eared approach to any kind of empowerment, given the history (and ignoring the fact that the whole thing was fraught with idiocy from the get go).
The LAST thing we need in science fiction is more groping. PERIOD.
(Sorry to have been MIA, but there’s a lot going on and I didn’t even realize this was happening until a day or so ago. And I think that’s pretty much all I have to say.)
