- — David Nolen (@swannodette)Thu, Mar 24 2016 18:37:28That @lambda_conf’s “justification” didn’t also include choice racist quotes from the speaker is just fucking dishonest. I’m done.

- — julie's not here (@argumatronic)Thu, Mar 24 2016 07:17:53I have never felt terribly comfortable in the programming community, although people have mostly been nice to me. But I'm old. And a mom.
- — julie's not here (@argumatronic)Thu, Mar 24 2016 07:20:05I have it on somewhat good authority that Curtis Yarvin doesn't believe high-IQ women can be both good programmers and good moms.
- — julie's not here (@argumatronic)Thu, Mar 24 2016 07:20:50And, yet, when I was asked, as a "marginalized" speaker to vote whether to include Yarvin or not at @lambdaconf, I said yes.
