    the Pirates in Germany, and you're totally right.  One of their members of parliament, for example, in a debate on affirmative action called it a "tits bonus".  Apparently someone made a "greatest hits" website of German pirate sexism; I've been punching some into Google Translate, and just, uck.  Apparently the situation over there has gotten bad enough that a group of women broke off and formed their own separate pirate mailing list.
