People are sick of feeling guilty for all these "victims."

Turns out that if you keep associating your brand with awful people, it devalues the brand.

I'll be honest, the way that was written actually made me like Pao more, even tho I agree with the title. There was very little evidence and was clearly biased. Was this an op ed?

It was a blog post, yes. No evidence to castrate the feminist movement, yet she's an icon to feminists? Obviously a glass-shattering CEO and pioneer for women to look up to, yet in the end ended up looking the fool instead of statuesque.

Like Leela as the first woman blurnsball player, she'll inspire other women to rise high to show that women actually aren't all shitty.

Maybe I just wanted something more in depth you know? I feel like said things that were true but if I was ignorant to the cause I'd need more facts or proof to believe it. A layman doesn't know why the lawsuit was frivolous for example

This guy has quite a few batshit crazy blog posts. He is a clown in my opinion. He seems to just parrot a lot of fox news talking points.

Serious question, who is a good blogger about similar topics in your opinion?

American Thinker is rarely straight news, almost completely op ed

Here's hoping. It's a shit movement. If it were true, men would not be able to find jobs. If women actually did the same amount of work for 30% less money, why the fuck would a company ever hire a man? Right, because that kind of logic is pure shit and women get paid what they are worth.

You should delineate between third wave / radical feminism and first and second wave feminism. The 3rd incarnation is the absurd caricature of never ending complaining and crying for someone to fix their own inadequacies but 1st and 2nd wave feminism should be respected because they demanded equality even if it meant a woman might have more difficulties in life.

By comparison 3rd wave feminists sound like the Ancien Régime right before the french revolution, (quick history lesson Nobles and Clergy were tax exempt, peasants and common folk were heavily taxed) they don't want equality they want to be a new privileged class with men as their serfs.

Thanks for saying this. A lot of people don't know that 3rd wave is what killed feminism.

Yeah, this article runs straight into Betteridge's Law.

It's a weird kind of person who would think that Pao could single-handedly fuck up an entire social movement like this. She hasn't done feminism any huge favors, but "castrated"? Come on.

... Not to mention that to use "castrated" to describe feminism losing power is a bizarrely patriarchal choice of words. The author seems a bit batty.

Yeah, definitely a ball-grabbing headline.

Poor choice of words doesn't equate to batty.

Ellen Pao was/is a significant figure as she was a CEO of a large internet company and probably had a large female following who looked up to her as a role model. Another one is Marissa Meyer of Yahoo, yet she hasn't felt the need to sue people who may have passed her over in the past for discrimination, hasn't needed to "equalize" chances for women by disallowing them to negotiate salaries (by the way were they paid equally to men in similar positions?) and any other comparison you may have. Fact is, Pao, regardless of investor-related moves, handled situations terribly in the past and continued to do so and lost her position.

I don't think many legitimate feminists held Ellen Pao in high regard. Maybe the SJWs she supported but do they really count?

Part of my problem with the feminist movement is how poorly defined it is. I've heard people refer to feminism as the belief in gender equality but this description implies that that everyone else who does not associate with the movement believes in gender inequality which is grossly untrue.

Haha I'm not sure but I doubt they're spending all day on Tumblr whining about 4chan and "Internet bullies."

I think it's concentrated a portion of it since so many large outlets are jumping to her defense. She's a shitty person who was the face of accountability for shitty decisions. In the back of my mind I keep rolling over the idea that this is just a play from both reddit and the larger more extreme end of the feminist movement to place focus on female empowerment so when election time rolls around Clinton might stand a better chance.

How does her firing a female fit into that scenario?

[–] SquarebobSpongebutt 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

You will notice the narrative her supporters are trying to weave ignores that firing as much as possible. I would hazard to guess that over time it will be spun as sexism, where a bunch of men behind their keyboards bullied a strong woman they did not like for her strength, all over the firing of someone they did like because she fit what the men thought women should be (helpful, cheerful, sweet, etc).

Basically what Spongebob said in a reply. It's largely being ignored, which is crazy since it kick started the largest outcry.
