Meet our frenemies, the Anti-HackerMoms

Are HackerMoms really exclusionary, reverse sexist, anti-women, anti-men, anti-dad and anti-hackerspace? 8 hours left to tweet/facebook/share/donate your opinions, even with our Anti-HackerMoms friends. We wrote this article where you can read some hate mail excerpts and our responses. http://mothership.hackermoms.org/2012/11/anti-hackermoms-send-hate-mail-hackermoms-respond

In light of such messages, we appreciate your support all the more for seeing the value of Mothership HackerMoms. As the article says, "We wanted to answer these critics with personal stories about why HackerMoms matters and why for members, it’s a matter so close to the heart." Our Kickstarter is racing to a close. Happy Thanksgiving to you. You have made ours a happy one with this happy ending.

Gratefully yours,

Sho Sho Smith, Founder

      is it just me, or did the site go down? The whole domains seems to be unreachable at the moment.

      I hate the term reverse-[anything], because no matter the race or gender of the individual, prejudice is prejudice regardless of who's feeling it toward whom. When "reverse" is put in front of the "-ism", it feels as though we're making light of the problem or making excuses for prejudice.

      That's just my opinion, anyway. I don't mean to be disrespectful of others'.
