36. Those "three white guys" started this site in what was then our darkest hour...

Dinging them for their ethnicity is BS. They did the hard work.

This site has had its ups and downs, sometimes through an excess of tolerance. We got overrun by trolls more than once, and you can look for their spiteful spinoff sites and read their ongoing grievances over having been outed and ousted.

You want to see more feminists and POC? Then speak out and help make this a more honest and welcoming arena. If you see bigoted or trollish behavior, call it out and/or alert on it. Don't tolerate it.

But don't gripe that the people who had the vision and did the hard work are either male or white. That doesn't fly.
