I read your blog on this mess, one of the better ones out there on the subject. Too many people misunderstand/oversimplify the complexities of categorization - and bandy the word "sexist" around a bit too loosely - so I was glad to see your nuanced approach. A few posts of mine that I'd love your thoughts on:

  1. Wikipedia_talk:Category_intersection#A_working_category_intersection_today - A prototype for category intersection, that I tested with Nigerian novelists. It uses the catscan tool. My thought is, we could easily implement this, starting with gendered/ethnic/sexuality/religion cats of bios. Clean up the output of the tool, make it look a bit more friendly, and then remove all of the gendered/ethnic/etc subcats and just use static cat intersections at the top for any key intersections people want. The best part is, we can do it today - we've been waiting forever for Wikipedia to implement the semantic bit, and wikidata is finally starting, but they won't have this capability I bet for a year or more - it will be much more sophisticated, but this is something regular editors can do, today.
  2. User_talk:Jimbo_Wales#On_structural_and_categorical_sexism where I expound at great length on the challenges of non-diffusing categories, and the problematic definition of categorical sexism.
  3. Wikipedia_talk:Categorization/Ethnicity,_gender,_religion_and_sexuality#Correct_categorization_quiz If you have a bit of time, please take my quiz, wherein you are challenged to correctly categorize a single article without ghettoizing by sex, race, religion, or anything else. Not easy!

Anyway, welcome your thoughts on the above, thanks again for the blog, good stuff. --Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 05:12, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
