Response and Apology for Sexist Jokes
07 Jun 2014 19:42:00
Some Notepad++ users pointed out several links in reddit to me, these threads were talking about some sexist jokes included as easter eggs in Notepad++:
I don’t consider myself as a sexist person, and believe me, I hate sexist people. But after reading some jokes again, I can see there are indeed some of poor taste, and I have to admit that they are sexist. I am sorry for including such inappropriate content in Notepad++. All the sexist jokes will be removed from the next release and such jokes will never be in Notepad++ binary.
Like the racism, the sexist phenomenon nowaday deserve more our attention. Take a deep look on our daily behaviour and tell ourself it’s sexist instead of saying it’s “not subtile” or “just rude”, that’s a good start to fight against the sexism.
