"RMS Must Go!" Anonymous 03/25/2021 (Thu) 04:54:40 No. 1530
From https://rms-open-letter.github.io/ (https://archive.is/8lZiU): >Richard M. Stallman, frequently known as RMS, has been a dangerous force in the free software community for a long time. He has shown himself to be misogynist, ableist, and transphobic, among other serious accusations of impropriety. These sorts of beliefs have no place in the free software, digital rights, and tech communities. With his recent reinstatement to the Board of Directors of the Free Software Foundation, we call for the entire Board of the FSF to step down and for RMS to be removed from all leadership positions. >We, the undersigned, believe in the necessity of digital autonomy and the powerful role user freedom plays in protecting our fundamental human rights. In order to realize the promise of everything software freedom makes possible, there must be radical change within the community. ... While these ideas have been popularized in some form by Richard M. Stallman, he does not speak for us. We do not condone his actions and opinions. >There has been enough tolerance of RMS’s repugnant ideas and behavior. We cannot continue to let one person ruin the meaning of our work. Our communities have no space for people like Richard M. Stallman, and we will not continue suffering his behavior, giving him a leadership role, or otherwise holding him and his hurtful and dangerous ideology as acceptable. >We are calling for the removal of the entire Board of the Free Software Foundation. These are people who have enabled and empowered RMS for years. They demonstrate this again by permitting him to rejoin the FSF Board. ... We are also calling for Richard M. Stallman to be removed from all leadership positions, including the GNU Project. They have also attached an appendix that details the "repugnant" behaviour, seen in https://rms-open-letter.github.io/appendix (https://archive.is/cV20K): >RMS’s views on rape and child sex laws were publicly discussed in the Fall of 2019, when Selam G wrote about them. Especially chilling is when Stallman addresses the accusations that Marvin Minsky sexually assaulted one of Jeffrey Epstein’s trafficking victims (Virginia Giuffre) by saying “but the most plausible scenario is that she presented herself to him as entirely willing.” Seemingly, Stallman has a taste for shotacon. >Of a woman having sex with a minor, he said “I wish an attractive woman had ‘abused’ me that way when I was 14.” However, Stallman also has a disdain for the mentally retarded, including "poorly disguised" "transphobia". >n the original publication of the GNU Kind Communication Guidelines, he said “there are various ways to express gender neutrality in third-person singular pronouns in English; you do not have to use ‘they.’” This text has since been updated, but is still transphobic. The main page on his web site includes the statement that “‘They’ is plural — for singular antecedents, use singular gender-neutral pronouns.”

>>1530 >Seemingly, Stallman has a taste for shotacon. Source? Or do you assume that throwing that accusation on a right wing/third position board will simply be accepted as fact? Nearly everything in https://rms-open-letter.github.io/appendix looks pretty based. >Especially chilling is when Stallman addresses the accusations that Marvin Minsky sexually assaulted one of Jeffrey Epstein’s trafficking victims (Virginia Giuffre) by saying “but the most plausible scenario is that she presented herself to him as entirely willing.”2 While no denies JE was a pedo kike, Virginia (who had lived on the streets as a hooker at age 13) was a slut that sold herself to JE and friends when she was 17 until she was 19 years old. In 2001 when she allegedly was with Marvin Minsky she was 18 years old. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virginia_Roberts_Giuffre >RMS decries that this is not “sexual assault” because “‘assaulting’ presumes that he applied force or violence” while the report being discussed “says no such thing. Only that they had sex Sounds about right >Of a woman having sex with a minor, he said “I wish an attractive woman had ‘abused’ me that way when I was 14.” Every 14 year boy has had sexual fantasies of being with 20-30 year old women (except you, because you are a faggot) >He directly addressed child pornography by saying that “making such photos should be a crime, and is a crime, but that is no reason to prohibit possessing copies of the photos.” <26 October 2014 (Prison for cartoon) <A man in the UK has been sentenced for prison for having a cartoon depicting a fictional child in some sort of sexual situation. https://www.gazettelive.co.uk/news/teesside-news/anime-fan-convicted-over-illegal-7958896 <The advocates of this kind of censorship started by saying they were trying to protect real children from being abused in order to take their photos. Making such photos should be a crime, and is a crime, but that is no reason to prohibit possessing copies of the photos. <However, they have already gone far beyond that. No child was harmed in drawing the cartoon. <To criminalize possession of copies of anything published — no matter what it is — is oppressive, and leads to many other forms of tyranny. While I disagree to a certain extent, due to seeing graphic loli as a symptom of a greater disease and/or a 'gateway drug' to pedophilia, I know there are those that can enjoy anime and pose no actual risk to harming anyone else. In an ideal world those that produce graphic loli would get the rope thereby removing the market for those that merely get off on it. For RMS to have the opinion that cartoons are harmless is not far from mainstream thoughts on the matter. >In 2015 and 2016 RMS made three posts on his website about Down’s syndrome. He recommended that, should someone find out they are pregnant and the child tests positive for Down’s syndrome “the right course of action for the woman is to terminate the pregnancy.”10 He referred to people deciding to “carry fetuses with Down’s syndrome to term” as “perverse” and said that there is “nothing virtuous” in “[increasing] the number of people that have Down’s syndrome.”11 He also said that “when a fetus has Down’s syndrome, you should abort it and try again.”12 On at least one occasion RMS likened having a child with Down’s syndrome to having a pet.13 Eugenics is based af >RMS has spent years on a campaign against using people’s correct pronouns. This is poorly disguised transphobia. In the original publication of the GNU Kind Communication Guidelines, he said “there are various ways to express gender neutrality in third-person singular pronouns in English; you do not have to use ‘they.’”14 This text has since been updated, but is still transphobic.15 The main page on his web site includes the statement that “‘They’ is plural — for singular antecedents, use singular gender-neutral pronouns.”16 (video related)
