This reminds me of the quote from Lieutenant General David Lindsay Morrison, "The standard you walk past is the standard you accept." Each time we walk past someone doing something terrible, we are telling them that it is ok and making it easier for the next person to do something even worse.

My 9 year old son says that he wants to be just like me and be a programmer when he grows up. I want to leave him with an industry to be proud of, where women are treated with the respect that they deserve. Everything that we do or fail to do is setting the standard for the next generation of technologists, so it is time to step up.
