Re: Linux distro for women? Thanks, but no thanks

No it doesn't. None of these comments are accurate. Let me be specific.


1. You have no right to claim that "the female gender(spelling corrected)" would be "further infuriate[d](spelling corrected)". Even if you're a woman, who elected you the head of all women to speak for them collectively?


2. You have no right to claim that "man" in general holds inherently the position that "women are a weaker sex". Again, who elected you the head of all mankind to specify the position of said group? I didn't vote for you.


3. Nobody that I know has suggested a distro for blacks. And if they did, what's your problem with it? Feeling discriminated against? Why? You can get a distro for whatever you want. I'll bet you could even get the Black or Female distro, and use it. Naturally the police might show up at your door and take you into custody for using a version of Linux for which you do not meet the user requirements, right? The suggestion that someone can't associate or create a distro for whom they wish is offensive and hypocritically prejudicial.


You might want to rethink your arguments.
