Several years ago, on this list, someone wrote a lengthy post about
women in software. It was not complimentary; the person was some kind
of "Men's Rights" activist. I stayed quiet at the time, and I regret
that; I'm not going to stay quiet now.
To directly answer your question: Mary Ann is an important figure in
the history of Unix. Mary Ann is transgender. Mary Ann has written a
book about her pioneering experience as a transgender woman in
corporate America at a time when that was rare (or, rather, not openly
discussed). Mary Ann's .sig contains information about her book. That
appears to be what you are responding to: her .sig; not the content of
her message, just the signature.

Indeed. Let's. It's not spoon-fooding tech support to people who can't
be bothered to figure it out for themselves, or do even a modicum of
work researching things on their own. Nor is it writing transphobic
non-sequiturs in response to .sigs. You didn't need to respond, at
all: you could have just moved on. But you chose not to.
Perhaps you should go elsewhere.
