European public tech funders brand themselves as feminist yet actively cultivate a culture of precarity that disproportionately affects and excludes anyone with dependents, anyone who can't take financial risk, and anyone with a disability.
If you care for children as a single parent, or live with health issues, it would be supremely irresponsible to depend on the funding model. You either throw the future of you or your dependents into uncertainty, or you are excluded.
@powersource It's not too hard to find examples. Some openly describe themselves as feminist or justice-based, some lean more into the "inclusive, open internet". It's all drawn from the same broad philosophies of access built upon layers of precarious competition.
