<div dir="ltr"><div><div>Hi Nick, Johny,<br><br></div>When I asked Johny off-list whether it was necessary to use the verb "raped", I did so simply to ask him the question, without meaning much judgement by it. I don't think people, especially men that regularly attend a hackerspace that is meant to be inclusive to everyone, should use such a charged word. I think it takes away from the quality of the post and distracts from the content, if there was any.<br>

<br></div>I've used charged language alot in my life, at the expense of making people uncomfortable, and without much feedback. I am trying not to do so anymore, because I don't think it's productive. When someone else does, I'm going to continue asking them to think about it or discourage them from doing so.<br>
