The linux.conf.au anti-harassment policy states:
- sexual images in public spaces
Yet Friday morning’s keynote, Mark Pesce, progressively violated this policy, starting with comic sexual images and culminating with a soft-core, lesbian bondage photograph.
Sorry, a “PG-13” rating does not excuse this behaviour. Yes they were wearing lingerie, it’s still pornographic. And for those who are going to continue to insist it wasn’t: the porny presso bingo card (via Skud).
Update: the chief linux.conf.au organiser made an apology for this morning’s keynote during the closing ceremony.
