The Ada Initiative's Valerie Aurora got Violet Blue's Hackers As A High-Risk Population (29c3 abstract) talk on harm reduction methodology pulled from the Security BSides meeting in San Francisco by claiming it contained rape triggers.

This post was deleted for the following reason: This seems like it's a bit short on info, with only one side, briefly presented. If there's a good discussion to be had about this, maybe you can work it up a little more to keep it from just being outrage fodder? -- taz

As far as I can tell, the talk in the video isn't the talk that was cancelled. I realise Violet Blue links to it, but either she's not very good at writing descriptions, or this is a totally different talk. The cancelled talk reads like it's a safe sex workshop put on from a harm reduction perspective and the 29c3 talk is appears to mostly be about harm reduction in the abstract.
