The problem, it seems, is not with the relative unwillingness of women to contribute to such a selfless enterprise. No: it's with the competitive, fact-obsessed (can you say phallocentric?) internet-geek culture which, by its very nature, discourages the ladies from participating.
According to "Kat Walsh, a policy analyst and longtime Wikipedia contributor, 'The big problem is that the current Wikipedia community is what came about by letting things develop naturally...'"
Well, indeed. We can't have that, now, can we? I mean, "things developing naturally?" Why, there's no telling where that sort of thing might lead! It could mean the end of all life as we know it!! Possibly even a gold-based currency!!!
Is there any conceivable circumstance in which the great & the good of our day would congratulate men for doing more than their fair share?
Is there any conceivable circumstance in which they would criticize women for not pulling their weight?
Assuming that the answer to both questions is "no" - what does this mean?
