I am in favor of (manual) constructor dependency injection:
1. It's easy to do unit test
2. Identifying a class that does more than one thing becomes very obvious as number of dependencies grows.

For sometime I have been suspicious that I was not productive when sitting home. Today I proved it to myself.
Sat in a coffeeshop just over three hours and managed to progress well in a task that I had failed to do over months at home in weekends.
This came as a surprised because previously I was exactly opposite. Means wasn't able to concentrate in a presence of anyone.

4. If men are always the predators and are not oppressed. Then what is it: "Men die by suicide 3.53x more often than women".
When talking about transgenders' rights, leftists use trans community high suicide rate as an indication that trans people are oppressed.
Why not do the same for men. Or is it a double standard here?
Population wise trans population is "0.5-0.6%" whereas men are "~50%".

@varx -
3. Your analogy of resembling sex allegations to food poisoning is a false analogy. Because food is vital for survival. But the other is not.
There is also a trend nowadays that more men are willing to stay single. It went too far that highly educated women have hard time to find suitable husbands. And now many men do not want to work with women in the same workplace because they scare of your so-called "false allegation nonsense".

@varx - I am not comfortable to continue this discussion because it's not constructive at all. So let's agree to disagree.
Last few points:
1. Many women are gaming family court system because most of the time, judges believe them regardless of facts. Examples are: restraining order, alimony, child support.
2. If women are not taken seriously why the "me too" movement gained lots of attraction.

@varx - my mean of hacker culture is similar to open source, foss stuff. Not cooperation or environments similar to Google, FB, etc.

@varx - What about starting fixing justice system first that could costs a person's life on false allegations.
FYI: This was the example I was looking for. peerj.com/articles/cs-111/
Again even assuming the article is correct, I still don't see the reason of mixing politics, identity politics in hacker's culture. If someone in hacker community thinks his works discriminated based on factors other than quality, he can fork the repo and continue on own.

@varx - Gender discrimination is happening in everywhere, every industry. And it should be fixed. It's no brainer that family courts in US and west in general are in favor of women. The same is true when it comes sexual abuse allegations. Courts destroy many men's lives with missjudgement established on lies, just because of the wrong assumption that women are always the victims.

@varx - seems some people at least believe to it. A good example has been provided in Eric Raymond article. I think it is worth discussion even if the initiator of the PR was a troll.

@varx - To be honest I don't buy such an argument. I don't believe any significant discrimination exists based on gender, sexual orientation, skin color and so on in Hacker culture, tech. Yet I hear lots of noises on social media, last example was Github conference.
I will be glad if you can point me to some of discrimination that you believe exist. Maybe I am not seeing the other side of the argument or missing something. I am quite open to it.

@varx - I disagree. Meritocracy is not the best ultimate solution but at the moment is the best option available. I wonder what other alternatives are available to replace it?
I am a non white middle eastern Muslim that my country is in the Trump' ban list and I have never ever encountered a single issue of getting my PRs judged based on who I am.
