Hey Lee,
I think you need to back off here.  Replying to a thread about something
awesome and very much needed at Noisebridge to dredge up a personal
grievance you have with an individual is an obvious and deliberate attempt
to stir up drama and to drag the feminist book club down with it.  That is
not cool.  The way you describe your interactions with Tom (calling &
emailing him repeatedly, despite him making it clear that he doesn't want
to speak with you) is a set of behavior that frankly would incredibly freak
me out if you were doing it to me.  If feminism is "the belief that men and
women should have equal rights and opportunities" then I hope you don't do
this to ladies because I'd be seriously threatened by this kind of behavior.
