The default mode for any character is male, so to make the characters female is an additional detail on top of that. This thinking is stupid and wrong and self-perpetuating unless you actively work against it.

1. Small individual bias → Large collective bias.
2. The past haunts the present, being unbiased is not enough.
3. Demand diversity near you.

As our culture progressed and became more and more willing to study racism and misogyny, and how they both operate systemically within our culture, ... the definition of “good guy” changed.

It was no longer just a public declaration that you weren’t bigoted and a lack of active oppression of women and people of color. Being a “good guy” now meant engaging in a difficult and complex process of understanding privilege, including your own privilege, acknowledging that, and understanding how racism and misogyny are created and disseminated, how much of that we’ve internalized, and how we work to end that.... Most of us are still struggling with these issues and our place within them every day.

But some people are LIVID... [They] cannot comprehend ... the idea that someone else’s narrative could be just as important, or, possibly, for even just a moment, more urgent and important, as anything but a MASSIVE injustice against them. They’ve been first in line for so long THEY NEVER EVEN KNEW THE LINE EXISTED, and they believe that being asked to wait in line like everyone else is bigotry against them. ...

They BELIEVE they’re the victims of a culture that changed behind their backs and deprived them of being the well-liked “good guy” without meeting new qualifications; ... the victims of a culture that suddenly “doesn’t care” about their issues because the issues of other groups are starting to be seen as equally important; the victims of a culture that no longer posits “white guy” as the one human in constant possession of the benefit of the doubt.

Leah Buechley's speech on Make Magazine and Maker culture. "I am really tired of setting up structures where we tell young women and young brown and black kids that they should aspire to be like rich white guys. ... I do not trust [Make] with the laudable goal of 'Every Child a Maker' when the people they showcase do not represent by any wild stretch of the imagination 'every child'."

Wer erst geschlechtergerechte Sprache für “gegendert” hält, hat irgendwas nicht ganz verstanden. Sprache ist bereits gegendert. Männlich ist nicht “ungegendert”. Wenn man nur die Abweichung[en] von “Mann” markiert, reproduziert das “Mann” als Norm.

There’s a culture war happening right now. Sexists, recreational misogynists and bigots are losing, and they don’t know why. Their rage is the rage of bewilderment.

We've all been soaking in a culture that teaches us to be much more judgmental of women than men and [have] almost surely absorbed that bias unconsciously.

People who proudly call themselves “gamers” everywhere have been harassing and trying to exclude women for the last ten years, citing every pathetic excuse in the book from a “feminist agenda” to “gamer culture is under attack”. It’s disgusting and it’s awful, and it doesn’t even make sense. ... Please leave this website.

Sprach­­li­che Mar­­kier­­ungen des “An­deren” sind zu­­läs­sig – sie sind ja auch nicht bö­se ge­­meint. Wenn “das Andere” aber die Nor­­ma­­li­­tät der ver­­meint­­li­­chen Mehr­­heit in Fra­­ge stellt und deren un­­be­­nan­­nte Iden­ti­­tä­ten (und jenen zu­­grun­­de lie­­gen­­de Macht­ver­­hält­­nis­­se) be­­nen­nt: Ze­ter und Mor­­dio! Dann ist ein Wort auf ei­n­mal nicht mehr nur ein Wort, son­­dern ei­ne Be­­lei­­di­­gung, gar eine Agen­­da. Dann sind auf einmal die Ge­füh­le der Be­trof­fenen nicht mehr nur Ge­jammer, son­dern ein legi­ti­mer Ein­wand.

Perhaps men arguing on the Internet follow a developmental path that echoes an individual man growing a social conscience, which in a very simplified form goes something like this:

  1. Sexism is a fake idea invented by feminists
  2. Sexism happens, but the effect of “reverse sexism” on men is as bad or worse
  3. Sexism happens, but the important part is that I personally am not sexist
  4. Sexism happens, and I benefit from that whether or not I personally am sexist
  5. Sexism happens, I benefit from it, I am unavoidably sexist sometimes because I was socialized that way, and if I want to be anti-sexist I have to be actively working against that socialization

There is nothing more natural than to accept some or many of the norms and forms of the status quo unconsciously or uncritically... Indeed, the great political advantage of authority is that it tends to operate unconsciously and with an incredible resilience such that resistance to its terms requires intense and ongoing vigilance.

Having privilege means not having to deal with other people's reality—the oppressed are forced to treat others' worlds as The Only Reality.

Das nur nach Leistung beurteilen gemäß der Hackerethik anstatt nach „Aussehen, Alter, Herkunft, Spezies, Geschlecht oder gesellschaftliche[r] Stellung“ ist zwar ein netter Versuch, aber einer, der in einer Gesellschaft, die von diskriminierenden Strukturen durchzogen ist, natürlich nicht gegen Diskriminierung wirkt sondern diese reproduziert.

Noch schlimmer als das Eingeständnis, dass es ohne Quote nicht gehen wird, eine angemessene Repräsentation von Frauen zu erreichen, ist die fortgesetzte Illusion, es ohne Quote zu schaffen.
