          >Over the course of the blog, Conway uses the self-admitted pseudonym 'Robert Sanders' to denote his deadname, which is justified as a means of 'protecting the identities of friends and family'. The effect of the tact is that I've seen some journalists (back in the late 1990s when Conway was forced out of stealth) mistook it for the actual name.

          RIP to a great engineer but I will never refer to "Lynn" Conway as a woman. Whether alive or dead, at no point will I feed someone's fantasies and use anyone's preffered pronouns. Transgenderism is a degenerate cult supporting mental illness.

    Conway's work was certainly great but the reason everyone is talking about this is transgenderism, not technological accomplishments. Sad.
