    • In the 70s gay people could lose their livelihood if someone invaded their privacy and outed them.
    • The hanky code became a subversive part of gay (& kink) culture which allowed people to reveal themselves to people in the know without risking their livelihood. Different colours and pockets indicated preference.
    • These days it’s universally agreed that being straight or gay should not rightly affect someone’s livelihood.
    • Within the Drupal community, Larry Garfield has had to write about his preference for sub-dom relationships after others started outing him.
    • Even after he was repeatedly found not to have breached the community’s code of conduct he was forced out of the offical roles he had in the community.
    • I don’t think it’s anyone’s business what colour handkerchief people have, where they keep them but it seems Dries Buytaert and the Drupal leadership do.
    • Dries proudly claims these exclusionary practices are their values. By implication, invading people’s privacy and outing them do not fall outside these values.
    • Reading Larry’s and Dries’ posts, I can’t help but think there but for an accident of timing go I.
