CCL:G: 8th French-Japanese Workshop on Computational Methods in Chemistry

 Meanwhile, I'm sitting here wondering if I am the only one who actually enjoys
 watching the Angry Old White Man meltdowns for their entertainment value, at
 least when compared to the usual pace here on the Gaussian Tech Support List.

 CCL members,
 We should appreciate the great holiday gift bequeathed to us, the rare
 appearance of Jim Kress. It is a holiday of macabre origins, not unlike a
 bizarro Groundhog Day.
 In fact, his presence here is somewhat like a time-stretched Punxsutawney
 Phil; when he pops his head out of his hole on (thankfully) increasingly
 rare occasions and casts his shadow on our e-mail inboxes, it means we need
 to spend another 6 years fighting for gender equity in our community.
 With regards,
 Nathan Seifert

 If you don't "approve" the list of speakers, don't attend.  The
 conformation
 of genitalia (or any other physical trait) is not a proper selection
 criterion.
 Speakers should be chosen on the basis of accomplishments, not gender.
 Heaven forbid we actually live in a meritocracy.  If you provide a list of
 females who should be exalted due to accomplishments, I'm sure the
 organizers of the Workshop would be interested.
 Otherwise, you need to provide what you believe is an acceptable list that
 is representative of the 26 genders you and your comrades have chosen to be
 fashionable.

 Organizers of the 8th French-Japanese Workshop on Computational Methods in
 Chemistry,
 I am sorry that I may have miscounted, it seems there is 1 female speaker
 among the 19 confirmed invited speakers (perhaps I have misinterpreted some
 of the other name and there are more?).
 I know it is not easy for conference organizers to ensure a gender-balanced
 program. But we need to talk about this problem sometimes, so that we can
 find out how we can improve things.
 with best regards,
 Kathrin Hopmann

 Dear Organizers of the 8th French-Japanese Workshop on Computational
 Methods
 in Chemistry,
 I counted 19 confirmed invited speakers on your website.
 Sadly, not a single of these seems to be a woman.
 with best regards
 Kathrin Hopmann
