Creeper Cards!



Creeper Cards!

Feminist have complained that geeky men are acting inappropriately to them at Tech conventions. So a couple of feminists came up with the idea of handing out cards to men that speak to them.

So instead of feminists showing their worth at a hackers convention by discussing technical topics, they attention whore how all the men find them irresistible (yeah).

I was wondering how feminists would like it if men gave them cards evaluating their behavior? heh.

Defcon isn't your typical tech conference. Happening in the heat of Las Vegas every summer, it attracts throngs of hackers -- 15,000 this year -- who are eager to learn about, and test out, the latest methods of breaking into computer networks, hacking phones, and general slaying of any type of security system imaginable.

  1. Ahaha... What an idiot she is)) It's kind of offensive. If something intolerant happening, she should say it in the eyes and adjust situation in the discussion, not humiliating people with a 'shame-on-you' cards that she came up with. Speaking about geeks and men here... I would partially agree with feminists that these geeks conferences are less safe for women. Do you know why in Muslim tradition women take their meal separately? It's because no matter how ugly women is, she distracts men just for being around. Our eye always focuses on something different from us, something that we do not get used to. So, for the geeks, those people usually have to spend a lot of time in front of the machines, so women for them become that different things that occupy their attention. And if they don't have enough experience in communication with women, they might say/do something intolerant. Just because W and M are different. It's nature, you can't argue with it. Just read some sociologic, psychologic articles.
