[22:19:38] Coraline: So I'm going to not be an op anymore. I don't really participate because some of the regulars on #ruby and #ruby-offtopic are really obnoxious and disrespectful to me and it feels like a hostile environment.
[19:23:41] Coraline: [13:17:16] <Ox0dea> $ unzip; strip; touch; grep; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; umount; sleep
[19:57:08] Coraline: I probably should have handled it. I'm erring on the side of not being accused of being overly sensitive I think.
[20:08:43] Coraline: So much of tech has catered to the whims and values of straight, cis, white men for so long
[20:10:03] Coraline: If you think it's a waste of time then let it go. Go code something. I don't need your opinions.
[20:48:16] Coraline: I released a new version of CC that took into consideration some of the criticisms of the previous version
[20:49:00] Coraline: https://github.com/ContributorCovenant/contributor_covenant/blob/master/changelog
[20:49:08] Coraline: https://github.com/ContributorCovenant/contributor_covenant/blob/master/diffs/1_3_vs_1_4.patch
[21:17:54] Coraline: Free speech is not freedom from consequences. You are free to be an asshole and people are free to call you out on it.
[15:41:00] Coraline: Already had one discussion about the situation with 0x and others. It didn't go well.
[15:41:35] Coraline: I'm all for people expressing and exploring their thoughts but it has to be kept civil.
[15:42:08] Coraline: And I refuse to take part in every conversation about it, I don't have that kind of energy.
[22:05:46] Coraline: Matz seems to be leaning toward crafting one specifically for Ruby, which will be good as long as marginalized people who know about these things are involved in the process.
[22:14:10] Coraline: Maybe some people would consider making sexual advances 'nice' because it's a compliment to the other person.
[22:19:06] Coraline: In the absence of a CoC there are people who will not feel comfortable contributing to Ruby.
[22:20:39] Coraline: I'm not going to have a discussion with someone who sexually harasses me, sorrynotsorry
[22:28:33] Coraline: Please don't talk to me about having a thicker skin. You have no idea what I go through every single day.
[22:34:21] Coraline: Because it's who I am and contributes to a) how I see the world, and b) how the world sees me
[22:39:21] Coraline: It's about clearly stating community values, outlining examples of unacceptable behavior, putting forward an enforcement mechanism with consequences, and signaling inclusivity.
[22:44:33] Coraline: Good thing we don't have laws. That would mean that America is full of bad people!
[22:58:01] Coraline: If I had been doxed by a contributor to a project then there could be consequences for that person.
[22:58:52] Coraline: People are less likely to be malicious if they know that there are consequences to their actions.
[23:02:10] Coraline: Doxing is an example of something that happened to me. It was an anonymous gg'er
[23:05:15] Coraline: Should we take murder laws off the books because one innocent person is in jail?
[23:17:09] Coraline: And if a woman tells you that there's a problem, are you really going to answer "works on my machine"?
[23:18:19] Coraline: You can't pretend that we live and work in a society that is colorblind and genderblind.
[23:19:49] Coraline: I have not personally experienced harassment by contributors to the Ruby project. I have personally experienced harassment by members of the Ruby community.
[23:26:32] Coraline: smathy: I can't say the same, so I would hope that knowing that my experience and therefore perspective is different would mean something.
[23:27:09] Coraline: If people who regularly experience harassment support an idea, and those who do not oppose it, there are reasons.
[23:28:32] Coraline: You can talk over others without listening. You can listen without hearing what someone is saying or empathizing with them.
[23:32:46] Coraline: I want the community that I'm part of to be deliberate and open about its core values and commit to enforcing them.
[23:42:11] Coraline: Papierkorb: how would it be different if deeterius stated in his Twitter profile that he was a core contributor to project x?
[23:48:52] Coraline: Papierkorb: so if a Ruby core member harassed me, I should start writing in another language?
