    I'd be interested to know if there are other design communities that you feel are more welcoming to women? If so how do they achieve that?

    I'm just worried that you just can't avoid a minimum ratio of "certain people" in any community, unless you resort to really heavy-handed moderation…?

      I'm curious too, because I would love a woman-friendly space for designers on the internet that encourages actual discussion.

      You probably can't avoid it. But you can call it out when you see it. If enough people do that (be they men of women), it can be seen as unacceptable by the community at large. I have to say, looking at the comments on the Tumblr I don't feel attacked for being a man, I'm simply appalled that these men have such a lack of awareness as to what they are saying.
