“Many participants don’t seem the least bit embarrassed, much less ashamed. On the contrary, they speak proudly about how they’re overturning traditions and paradigms in their private lives, just as they do in the technology world they rule.”
We are living in the end times of something, no?
I SUPPORT CALEXIT.
nb They “rule” nothing, bankers do. When easy credit goes, so do the orgies.
“How could it be anything but weird and dramatic and people on the edge testing everything?” On the one hand, he said, “if you thought like everyone else, you can’t invent the future,””
Talk about false equivalence. Abnormality is not deviance.
Putting the ritual into hazing ritual.
I don’t remember the part of consent law where you need to drug unsuspecting people first. It’s in the rape law, though, very common there.
I’ll enjoy watching their collapse.
So proud they do it at night and in secret. Hmm.
“Rich men expecting casual sexual access to women is anything but a new paradigm.” This is why we haven’t gotten a decent new technology in decades. These fuckers.
Predators are common and the motives always sound the same: wah wah entitlement, the world owes me for being amazing. From the people who made social media.
Who wants to tell them that cliques always collapse? It’s ugly.
– From the people capable of having a social life that isn’t degenerate?
“In fact, these guys even have a term for the women who pursue them: founder hounders.”
It’s quite the opposite. They have to invite the women, don’t they?
“When I ask Founder X whether these men are taking advantage of women by feeding them inhibition-melting drugs at sex parties, he replies that, on the contrary, it’s women who are taking advantage of him and his tribe, preying on them for their money.”
Yes, because any rational person would see sex and cash as interchangeable.
Unless they hand the women cash after to keep quiet about being abused, I’m not buying it.
Tribe. Yes. Tribe…
Also, Founder X?
The first rule of Fuck Club…….. the second rule, if it’s your first night…..
“In their online profiles, men are all but saying, “Hello, would you like to come up to my loft and see my stock options?”’ I used to think they were smart. They take options instead of money?
This is going to be a laughriot.
“once men like this land a woman, they are quick to throw her back.”
Emotionally disturbed manwhores. Insecure attachment, impossible to please. Yes, it’s the women at fault, of course it is.
When that attention dries out, some will inevitably kill themselves. I couldn’t say the world would lose much.
The idea that a man needs to sow any wild oats is such a loser Boomer paradigm. Note how many of these males are Gen X, Gen Y is more rightly disgusted at these habits.
“The claim of being stalked by women often becomes an excuse used by some tech stars to justify their own predatory behavior.”
They chase the woman and whatever happens, including nothing, claim she was stalking him. Crazy bitches don’t get believed.
“why do I have to compromise?” These people claim to be better than you. It’s like toxic Boomer on steroids.
They honestly think they can control or keep another human being. Sad!
Leto is such a creep (PSA).
“In the Valley, this expectation is often passed off as enlightened—a contribution to the evolution of human behavior.” You are a bonobo in a hoodie. You are backward.
Truly evolved men wouldn’t need to leverage their power to screw people from work.
‘I should be able to have sex with a woman because I’m a rich guy.’ Similar to the logic of GHB druggers and date rapists. They tell themselves it’s a safe situation and the woman chooses to be a target because she’s the defective one.
“It’s way better than a swingers’ club would feel because this is at a home and you are surrounded by people you know.”
How is that not a swinger’s club, at best? Joke’s on them, your microbiome will carry those diseases and impair you later.
I’ve heard of swingers who work exactly like that, the keys in a bowl type. Their cancer rates merit study.
“They talk about diversity on one side of their mouth, but on the other side they say all of this shit.” Male feminists are the biggest misogynists going, yup. Their act goes that they can abuse a woman as much as they like and call her empowered for it.
I find it funny they use the word commitment when asylums used to take perverts. And as if there’s any such thing without faithfulness.
So self-aware they fund artificial friends, this is pathetic. You wanna be self-aware? Put down the drugs.
“we’re all cool about sex” scene.’ Cool? How old are you?
“Crawford can’t even count the number of men who’ve told her how lucky she is to have so many eligible men to date in the male-dominated tech scene.”
Interesting gaslight, fending off nascent lawsuits.
Peter Pan fuckboys hardly count as good, eligible MEN.
“the party scene is now so pervasive that women entrepreneurs say turning down invitations relegates them to the uncool-kids’ table.” Your money will last longer than theirs.
“Not doing it was a thing.” Cult says what?
Independent thinkers, heavy on the peer pressure. Aha.
“They talk business at these parties. They do business,” she said. “They decide things.”
But there’s no pressure or abuse of power.
This is part of the reason frigid is really just a way for evil men to criticize the few good women left. What else would they have?
Respect should also mean the right to turn something down and have that be respected. Consensual connotes a right of refusal.
“Over time, I realized that it’s false advertising and it’s not something women should think is a way to get ahead.” Yes, they lie. Like most predators. If they want to work with you, they will?
“If you do participate in these sex parties, don’t ever think about starting a company or having someone invest in you. Those doors get shut. But if you don’t participate, you’re shut out. You’re damned if you do, damned if you don’t.” People who sleep around are generally untrustworthy. These ‘open’ people won’t be public about it. Hmph, cowards hiding behind liberalism.
They’ll die poor so who cares?
If a person has no conscience, that applies to their working hours too.
