Man, you can disagree with everyone’s actions in this story, but calling the folks involved some of the names y’all are using is kind of ugly — especially since some of the people using such hateful language have marriage equality icons for their profiles. And geeez, look at that sea of white dudes in the audience … that would make me pretty uncomfortable. A lack of diversity is a lack of imagination, and a missed opportunity for the industry. I imagine the dudes’ comments were the straw that broke the camel’s back for Richards. Women in the tech industry have to endure sexism all the time and it’s exhausting.
