If "women should be welcome in tech" is a step too far for you, then you are 
too whiny to be useful in tech.

And technology is ALWAYS political. If you think otherwise, you are naive to an 
almost childish level.

Funny how politics in tech are not a problem to you people when it's politics 
you already agree with. But now you have to make a tiny sacrifice, improve just 
a teensy bit as a human being, and suddenly you're scared.

And if the divide is between "people who want free software to be inclusive" 
and "people who don't want their leaders to be held responsible" then I welcome 
that divide.
