This is her initial thread
If it's not clear, I'm saying click on these to bring up not only the linked tweet but also the immediate responses to it from each party.
- this isn't a work account, but her own personal twitter
- she isn't on it to play customer service/the customer is always right.
Then we can talk.
You don't have to scroll up. I'll supply them again.
If it's not already obvious, I disagree with that.
You may have heard of a term called mansplaining. This is what it looks like.
1) As we discussed before, he wasn't at all trying to have a conversation. He was popping in, saying "no, here's how you do it", and then leaving. For fuck's sake, he even capped it off with "Nonetheless, I appreciate the insightful thread!".
Another make your own mind up exercise. Do you actually take him as being sincere here?
"I meant no disrespect AT ALL." "Nor has this ANYTHING to do with gender". "I will retract my comment, cause obviously I'm in the wrong forum for this kind of talk."
"I, a man, am explaining to you how to do your job despite having no experience in it. Also, I, a man, am explaining to you how this has nothing to do with sexism despite having no experience with that either."
When your response to her saying you're mansplaining is to say "No see you're wrong, this has nothing to do with gender", the point is flying so far over your head that it's leaving orbit.
Price characterises Deroir as a 'rando asshat' with zero experience explaining to an actual dev with 10 years of experience how to do her job.
If you haven't noticed so far, I agree with her characterisation.
We've talked about playing to the crowd a lot. Let's see how the crowd reacted. Hope you don't mind my highlights.
But of course, we like men who don't take any gruff. Men who speak their mind. Men who tell it like it is
I *met* a woman. And I paid attention to how the world treated her. And through her I paid attention to how the world treated women full stop.
She didn't tell me. She didn't try to convince me. I watched, I listened, and I realised. Still, it took me way too long.
I was part of that problem. Sexism isn't just the sleazy co-worker. It's the guy who doesn't think he's sexist, doesn't think sexism is real anymore, while discounting everything women say to the contrary.
But he said it with nice words, so nobody cares.
I'm saying she doesn't fucking have to be. She's a human being. That's not me saying she's flawed and made mistakes; it's me saying she doesn't have to suck your dick for you to treat her like a human.
They're you. They're fucking people. Just treat them like people.
