Surly Amy Cries, Leaves TAM Over A T-Shirt

Amy’s given me permission to quote her, so here’s her account of what all that was like:
I think one of the most hurtful things I experienced while attending TAM was Harriet Hall’s Tshirt that she wore three days in a row. I told her through tears, in the speakers’ lounge, that it was dehumanizing and gender/color blind and very hurtful to me specifically as a person who does have to deal with harassment regularly.
Here is Thunderf00t’s dissection of the situation, including a great video made for it.
