Hey , I've been thinking.

on why we need queer feminist hackerspaces. ⤵️

@ptilou42
Idea: When we create spaces like queer feminist hacker spaces, and we should create lots of them, we make those spaces *owned by* rather than *exclusive to* those it is for. Eliminate the assumptions that marginalized people can't maintain power or that privileged people can't learn to accept the leadership of others. Have safe spaces, but don't make them ghettos or let the fact that they are necessary reduce the visibility of those they serve

Our hackerspace is open to everyone, as long as they comply with our Code of Conduct.

However, I do believe that women-only and queer-only spaces are necessary as well, although they serve a different purpose. I do not think the word "ghetto" applies to those, nor that they reduce visibility.
