so, have we established female rights for demoscene women already or do we need another 100 years of civilization first? most demoscene ladies managed to survive in the previous 100 years with all the 'white male sexism' and 'artistic misuse of their physique', i'm sure they can survive another.

yeah, i guess you are using one hand to write and the other to count female demosceners :)

I think we need to test that statement scientifically.

Will all demoscene ladies who have survived in the previous 100 years with all the 'white male sexism' and 'artistic misuse of their physique' please raise their hands:



...OK, and now will all demoscene ladies who have NOT survived in the previous 100 years with all the 'white male sexism' and 'artistic misuse of their physique' please raise their hands:



...

oh. I guess you're right then.

Nothing constructive to add. Will say, 28.6% of my group are lovely girlies. Can't speak for them, but can tell you they go to parties yet not to Pouet.

Jenni: the scene considered it offensive, that's why it was dq'd


No, the scene did not. Just some peeps who could not stand true humour did.

Humor is subjective.
Oh golly, I found the "What can you do in Paint thread" again!

Once again proof that Germans have no idea how humour works.

By which I mean that that video is shit, not that is was wrongfully dq'd because it was funny, because it's a lot of things, but funny is not one of those.

I caught up with reading Ringo's somewhat-related residue thread about the opposite sex, and was happy surprised to read one of the many comments of Gargaj :

Quote:
"[...] newcomers - what if they're women? Would I want to see a potentially talented female coder / artist visit Pouet and see that the first thing on the BBS is a thread about girl pics."


Couldn't agree with you more.
Yeah in that case the thread would've been best to stay dormant... :/

what happened in the end? was the logo removed?

Rest assured, the thread "felt" secondary.

Most interesting to me was you (and maybe others' - didn't read all) addressing the crucial issue of welcoming the next generation of demosceners (most likely inducing a significant increase of women in the community if only for its survival imho) : a theme I see becoming recurrent in the future but not yet discussed formally.

Furthermore on IRC a provocative minority, including myself, would even consider temporarily positive discrimination for women submissions at demoparties when taking into account both the similar efforts observed in the science community lately and the vast catch-up.

Should it be reminded the first coder in human history is believed to be a woman, or recall which wife is really behind the calculus of the first general relativity papers ?

So why shoot ourselves in the foot ?
Defiance: Yes.
Sarcasm: No.
