Hey #35c3, I've been thinking.

#Thread on why we need queer feminist hackerspaces. ⤵️

#feminism #hackerspaces #PTSD #RapeCulture

On #Day2 I was on the panel #FeministPerspectives for @le_Reset@twitter.com. When someone asked how we could merge "men hackerspaces" and "women hackerspaces", I answered something about how we don't have the same issues and we're not interested in "men hackerspaces" topics.

Afterwards, that got me thinking. Of course I'm interested in those topics. I've been coming to the #CCC for the past 5 years. I used to go to "regular" hackerspaces before we created @le_Reset@twitter.com. I'm a member of "regular" geek groups like @LaQuadrature

And frankly, as we have discussed with other women and queers at the #35c3, nerds at the CCC might just be the least harassing kind of straight males. So, why do we need queer feminist hackerspaces ?

I remembered why on #Day3, when I attended a talk on hacking sextoys. That talk was great. It was interesting, it was funny, I had a great time. Until the rape joke.

Sure, having a so-called "secure" systems with all main ports active and detectable is funny. I'm not sure illustrating it with a rape analogy gif was essential, though.
