I just got asked to participate in a conference because it's too much of a sausage fest. I was like sure, I can run a workshop, do a talk, what do you need? 'I need you to read what I've written word for word up on stage,' says the 'woke' organiser. I told him I wasn't comfortable doing that, but that I could write something up. 'No, that's not what I need,' said he.

So much sexism is unconscious, it's a clusterfuck to pin down. Esp when a man thinks they're one of the 'good guys'

@Gin this is horrible. I'm sorry you had to go through this. Is it acceptable for you to share the conference details?
