Thankfully there seems to be a lot less of that here; on the other hand, possibly because there's a lot less of everything here :/

A good read, thanks for sharing. I find this kind of stuff generally depressing.

Note that there was a rebuttal posted by a female user of the forum in the comments section:

Myself being a female user of Muff Wiggler, all I can say is that misogyny and sexism within the modular synthesizer community is mostly in the imagination of the beholder, particularly if that beholder cherry-picks content out of context for the sole sake of having something over which to be irritated.

If people really want to debate the situation, there are ample opportunities to do that over at Muff's.

I will point out though that there are women who publicly stand up and claim the USA has no problem with misogyny in our public sphere as well. Doesn't make it so.

I think that what's there at Muff's is a reflection of "Internet Culture" as well as the broader social issues of the day. I also think Muff's is quite exemplary in being LESS of a mirror of those problems than MANY boards out there. But that doesn't mean there's not a current there too--quite the opposite, it would be amazing if it were not.

hmmmm, I was disappointed .
With the magazines name , I was expecting to view pretty, 8 - 10 denier pastel shade blue nylon , preferably with a descrete all over pattern of dots or bows Smile Smile , but instead there was just a human that did not understand V=I R & ohms laws associated equations.

This forum, the Fiddle Forum, and the one for Steve Albini's studio (forgot the name) are the three least sexist I've seen. People here seem to be cool, so I guess that's the reason - yes there's low foot traffic but signal quality is high.

Fiddle Forum has so many female users anybody wanting to be sexist would not survive long there.

The last one, well it's brutally self-policing when it needs to be.

Thanks for posting that link. I replied on that blog, directing the author to check out our forum, where everyone is welcome and where we are actively trying to promote a diverse community.

BTW, I'm also a member at Muff's, and he is a member here. We cooperate and support each other. The community is bigger that a single forum - we all know that.
