Discrimination in 458 characters, not 140

To be crystal clear, here is my position on the recent discrimination in UX. Ian, thank you for encouraging me to say this in 458 characters as well as 140.

Discriminators: Stop it, now.

Victims: Draw strength from those in similar situations, talk to them. (Sarah, Relly, Leslie, Whitney, Amy, Jessica). Speak up publicly to raise awareness so the rest of us can help make this treatment culturally unacceptable.

Everyone else (incl. conference organizers): Listen. Believe. Don’t suppress discussion, even if it makes you uncomfortable or you think it has a negative short-term impact. Don’t stand by and do nothing.
