Hello Mateusz,

I don't think I misunderstood your email at least the tenor of your email. 

Your response also reflects this tenor.

You response states "my post which was dedicated to women".

Your email was on OSGeo Discuss list. Therefore, I presumed then I was allowed 
to participate in the discussion.

Hence the inheritantly flawed problem with singling any group out based on 
gender, race or religion.

I am sorry I don't seem to get it but in my mind I do not distinguish or care 
about your gender and have trouble understanding why you wish to politicise a 
group dedicated to Open Source GIS. Battles about perceived impressions of 
inequality should be fought elsewhere.
Cheers Simon
