That is nonsense.

I've known RMS since 1979. Not only doesn't he have a bigoted bone in
his body, he doesn't even have a bigoted *atom* in his body.  He considers
details like skin color, sexual orientation, etc, pretty much irrelevant to
anything important about people.

He is a disaster around women, but not because he had any form of
prejudice against them - just terrible social skills and some kind of
autism-like deficit.

Any "think pieces" making stronger claims are full of shit.
