Woman Live-Tweets IBM Execs’ Sexist Conversation

85198210

If you have the urge to say something completely offensive about women in the workplace, it’s a good idea to make sure that the person next to you doesn’t have the ability to live-tweet the conversation.

Are they kidding?

yes

Anonymous said: It mostly just sickens me that people were praising that post bc mcdonalds were "seeing past gender" when in reality, they were trying not to tick off asshole bronies. Even if I were male, I'm still an adult, and I wouldn't pitch a fit or get upset over asking for a "girl" toy. I'd get my damn toy and go.

Anonymous said: When I first saw the mcdonalds toy post I immediately KNEW it was bc of bronies. No doubt in my mind. Because they have never done that for any other gendered toy theme and it's just too convenient that THIS "girl toy" is the one that changes this policy while we all know a large portion of the fan base is male. Too convenient. They'll switch right back when brony MRAs have had their fill of whining. I personally went in specifically for the MLP toys several times and they asked me "boy or girl"

Yeah I didn’t see it as a gender thing at all, to much of a coincidence that it was MLP toys when they decided to change their “policy”

"Objectification is a critical reason why an abuser tends to get worse over time. As his conscience adapts to one level of cruelty—or violence—he builds to the next. By depersonalizing his partner, the abuser protects himself from the natural human emotions of guilt and empathy, so that he can sleep at night with a clear conscience. He distances himself so far from her humanity that her feelings no longer count, or simply cease to exist. These walls tends to grow over time, so that after a few years in a relationship my clients can reach a point where they feel no more guilt over degrading or threatening their partners than you or I would feel after angrily kicking a stone in the driveway."

PRAISE BE

When I worked at a fast food restaurant, I did a social experiment.
One day, I asked “do you want a girl toy or a boy toy?” No one went against gender roles.
The next day, it was “do you want a doll toy or a car toy?” Boys got dolls. Girls got cars.
Vocabulary is important.


Yeah but is this a gender thing or a we don’t want to anger the bronies thing?
