What?

Viewing hacking issues with a pro-feminist(/antinationalist) focus.

The gitm abbreviation comes from the (in)famous mitm (man-in-the-middle) class of attacks.

Because:

  • I am really tired of all these sexist/homophobic jokes/whatever in general, and specifically in my work environment, i.e., computer science/cyber-security area.
  • If you have a look on hacking forums, you will see a vast majority of men trying to find out how they can hack their girlfriends’ email/facebook acount/etc. Actually, gender seems to even influence the botnet prices nowadays! This means that there are “perverts” (I say men) that are willing to pay for hacked machines of women in order to spy their webcams (check this or this). Therefore, buying a bot, i.e., a hacked machine, is cheaper when the owner is male!
  • Geek is not a synonym for male (btw check).
  • Hacking is fun. Patriarchy is not.
  • For all the reasons in the world: I could keep adding reasons here, but I don’t see why.
