    Sheesh, would someone get a grip on reality...

    _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.

    My girlfriend and I both cook, and we are both Linux enthusiasts. She's currently saving up to buy components to build her own desktop machine, and I'd like to be able to show her Phoronix reviews to help her pick things out, without her having to read things that insult her in between the benchmarks.

    Michael's apology is a good sign, and it shows that the site owners know that it's not right to insult people like that. But the news post really needs to be changed to reflect this, I think. There are a lot of unspoken assumptions in it that a lot of people find offensive, and I think that that ought to be rectified.

    Some people would take it in stride if their favorite cooking website posted an announcement about "Our new NASCAR and monster truck site that's sure to please your husband!" The fact that they wouldn't be bothered by it, though, doesn't make it any less unkind / insulting for the site's owners to lump people together like that, under a stereotype that many of them would resent or be depressed by.

    Sort of like in this post on Not Always Right: http://notalwaysright.com/danica-says-eat-my-dust/2151

    I'm not bothered about the article but between me and my wife, I'm the one they call "Chef Chewi" while she can't cook to save her life! She does use Linux though.

    Does foodstruments.com constantly plug their Phoronix Test Sweet for baked goods?
