Gnangarra admitted to deliberately using a provocative tone to get
attention ("I chose my tone intentionally to draw attention to the
competition"). Acting surprised that people were aggrieved is disingenuous.

On the topic of sexism: the underrepresentation in the Wikimedia community
of every demographic that is not white men is such a stain on the moral
character of the projects and a threat to their long-term survival. The
ways in which this lack of diversity is reinforced and perpetuated by
behavioral norms are by now so well-documented that ignorance and lack of
malice are not excusable. In my opinion, if you are not making a conscious,
deliberate effort to make this community kinder and more welcoming, you are
part of the problem. All the more so when the topic under discussion is an
initiative to engage women editors and improve the breadth of coverage of
topics relating to women.
