So you are saying that one person can't complain against other person
actions/behaviour strictly because it is part of some majority? That's like
very sexist (given we're talking about being male/female here) and
discriminative (in general) thing since you're denying him the same rights
simply because he's a male.

I think that's realy bad thing.

I dont know what the other side of this conflict (namely Randi) brings to
the project, but a quick search shows me just a few commits against xmj's
few hundreds. I wasnt aware FreeBSD project is a 'feminist project' that
values keeping female contributors around despite their behavior over male
contributors doing actual work, exposing the same type of behaviour (to be
perfectly clear, xmj got into a 'fight' where he shouldnt, so I consider
the blame to be shared here).
