@avirette: So there was a talk at #shmoocon that was unnecessarily sexist (& gross really). I spoke out about it. People thanked me for doing so.
@avirette: People told me in person, in DM. The speaker(s) denied it was sexist rather than owning it and apologising.
@avirette: This is the reason people don't speak up. Nobody believes anything will be done, that anyone will change. This is why we need rules.
@ZeroFox: are you at the conference? We're in the hotel lobby and happy to grab a coffee and get your feedback
@avirette: you could have presented that talk very differently Try, next time, imagining there are women in the room.
@theprez98: Didn't see it, not taking sides...but the speaker offered to meet you to discuss. Doesn't seem unreasonable.
