the rust meta, racism ment 

so it seems that the only clarification we got was this

news.ycombinator.com/item?id=2

and yknow, when i saw "sexist and racist", i was expecting some fucked up shit and probably antiblackness

but the sources seem to *all* be "she was racist against white men!!!!" and well, some shitty lib radfem takes i guess

i dunno about you but to me accusing people of "anti-white racism" is kinda not a good look

the rust meta, racism ment 

the post also includes the classic "oh you said that men suck? well, replace that with women, not so acceptable now huh", and i mean, i feel like that's pretty much as bad as her original liberal radfem misandrist takes

i dunno. it doesnt seem like there is a lot of Good here

the rust meta, racism ment 

"actively trying to prevent white men from speaking at tech conferences"

that's racism?????

the rust meta, racism ment 

yknow, when i heard "someone on the core team is being racist and sexist", i didn't expect it to be ""racist and sexist at white men"" at all

this is just so full of bs

the rust meta, racism ment 

the rust moderation team of whole three people resigned because.......... someone on the core team was mean to white men???

the rust meta 

i dont really know a lot about who Ashley Williams is, other than what i saw in these posts, but damn, the people who are really really upset at her aren't giving themselves a good look

the rust meta 

"It is no wonder then, that the three white male members of the Rust moderation team (who are all very dedicated rust programmers, in contrast to Rust core team members) decide to quit, when it has become clear that the Rust leadership has been infiltrated and corrupted by misandrist elements"

lmaoooo

the rust meta 

its just funny to me how badly this was blown out of proportion

of course, "The Whole Rust Moderation Team Resigned" sounds huge, unless you actually read the pull request and realize that the whole team consisted of three people

rust is dead!! ...because someone on the core team made white men upset

@AgathaSorceress I was involved pretty deeply with the 2018 edition and I had my heart broken in 2019 by the way the community was moving.
At this point I just feel like I saw the writing on the wall 😔
