G'day, fellow RationalWikians! Don't forget to visit the Campaign page of the 2016 Board of trustees election in order to make your voice heard. Suggested activities include:

  • Endorsing select candidates (lending a hand to your loyal henchmen and/or glorious overlords!)
  • Anti-endorsing select candidates (character-assassinating your hated opponents!)
  • Providing moar goat (please wipe afterwards)
  • Just asking questions to the candidates

Your participation might help other users better direct their votes. More importantly, it'll show the world that we've yet to go full Citizendium in terms of election hype!

[edit] Overt versus subtle sexism

here's a site with great examples

Overt sex discrimination refers to the unequal and harmful treatment of a certain gender that is readily apparent, visibile, and observable and can be easily documented. Examples of overt sex discrimination include sexual harassment, sexist language and jokes, physical violence and violation (rape, spousal abuse), and other forms of unequal treatment within the family, employment, politics, religion, and other institutional sectors. For instance, inequality in the economic sector includes unequal salaries in comparable jobs, lack of promotion

Subtle sexism refers to the unequal and harmful treatment of a given gender that is visible but often not noticed because of institutionalized behavior that treats it as "normal," "natural," acceptable, or customary. In terms of characteristics, subtle sexism can be innocent or manipulative, intentional or unintentional, well-intentioned or malicious.
