I find this response problematic. Just because sexism is a societal issue it doesn't mean it should be dismissed when it occurs within the specific community we are a part of. Just because other message boards suck, it doesn't mean we should tolerate sexism in message boards where we actively participate.
Of course we shouldn't tolerate it, but if it is that big of a problem throughout society, then any fix will be like putting a band-aid on a broken leg.
For example, companies could hire 20% more women, but does that really change anything other than making us feel better and saying we did something?
That's why I think the problem needs to be identified and then addressed accordingly. Many people seem to just want to fix a problem when they don't know the question.
