If 20% of a group are harassers (evenly across genders), & the group has more men than women… then each woman gets 16x more bad experiences than each man.
The Petrie Multiplier: in a group where x% are bullies/harassers, the minority will feel it (x/100)^2 more.
This blog post has stuck with me through the years. I like the maths in it, & I like the conclusion that attacking sexism/racism etc doesn't have to be an attack on the majority.

#BornHack buildup starts in less than a week!
If you have time to spare and want to lend a hand building our awesome hacker camp, we can definitely use all the help we can get. So feel free to show up a few days before the official start on the 8th if you can. Just let me or one of the others in the orga team know if you do so we can plan stuff around available pairs of hands. Looking forward to this year, it's gonna be awesome!
Daughter has reached the age of asking "why?" to everything.
"hold on to that cup with both hands"
"i don't want you to drop it"
"It's made of glass, and if you drop a glass thing it can break"
"because glass is brittle"
"because supercooling molten silicon dioxide makes an amorphous solid which is weaker than the crystalline form"
"the crystalline form has a tetrahedral lattice of ionic bonds"
"because one silicon atom can bind with four oxygen"
