I have never seen any sexism on this list before, and I truly believe that
the great people I met at Sevilla are embarrassed by the language of this
posting. We all have a real contribution to make, so please don't go away.
If you are really are still brassed off, write to me personally, and blow
off steam....:) (And you know that "guys" is now a gender neutral term,
don't you!)

Shame on you Ricardo!

Misogynist sexist objectification of any author or their work is absolutely
unacceptable on this list.
If we are ever going to move forward in this field towards a body of
knowledges that is anything other than over-determined by a particularly
gendered history this kind of signifying practice can not be condoned.
You have almost managed in practical terms to have a private men's club,
with a few women relegated to the wings. If this really is the intent, then
be clear about it and the rest of us can move elsewhere.
