_Most_ nerds, and by that I mean over 90% if not more, are men. I don't think the number is any different with Linuxusers, it might be even higher. This is neither sexist nor offending, it's reflecting reality. No reason to bash Phoronix for not being over politically correct, which is just ugly. There's a degree to which it _may_ be justified, but not here.
It's like saying black people are overrepresented in American jails. Is that racist, discriminatory? It's just stating the truth.
I really don't want to imagine food reviews on phoronix.
"Here's three pages of graphs generated by phoronix-test-suite, describing nutritional values, chemical composition as well as mass, density, conductivity and pulpiness of the food. We didn't bother testing how it tastes, though."
It's a Phoronix-Media webs-ite. Michael made ONE post informing you about it. Big deal. Go cry in your pillow. Personally, if they launched 3 more web-sites all unrelated to tech I would wonder why they didn't advertise at first between each other. There's more to life than your Linux PC and I personally have to eat.
Maybe you could change the article then? It is very offensive
And some people are just overly sensitive. My wife for one thought it was a great "tongue in cheek". Certainly no more offensive than many of the average headlines on the cover of many women targeted magazines.
