Ugh… Go from an all day celebration of women, independence, bettering themselves & the world to seeing/reading all the bullshit “confusing things girls do” that is trending on Twitter. WTF??
Which ties in to a company that I have been following.
A) Republican - partnered with the Newt is the latest
B) Sexist - partnered with Playboy - empowering women? are you fucking kidding me?
C) Integrity - LACKING. You are working with Lululemon whose founder invented that name because he doesn’t like Asians and wanted to laugh at them trying to say it, and that’s just a start.
Jeez, do they need a feminist onboard!! But noooo… they have women working there that tweet stuff like “all girls are confused and confusing”… Maybe girls but definitely not women.
Pathetic. Pathetic. Pathetic. I’m still shaking my head at that. Seriously, what is your target market? Teenage boys who play football? Bubble-headed women? The 1%? I’m going with yes on all of the above. Believe me there are women who don’t give a rats ass about which celebrity is doing what, what shoe looks the best etc, however, they are not represented. Just Golf, football, girls in various stages of undress, republican crap, hockey, basketball - unfucking believable.
Spent the day following and live streaming TEDxWomen a worldwide event for women. Powerful, independent, connected women leaders - ranging from Gloria Steinem to the 3 girls who won the Goggle Science Fair. Amazing women, every single one of them.
Would the people over at said company even know about such an event… Let’s go see…well, well, apparently two did! Thank goodness one of them is even a higher up..:)
Here is my favorite quote from TEDxWomen and Suzanne B Levine:
I don’t care what you think anymore is the hallmark of what I call, “The Fuck You fifties”
That would be exactly where I’m at. I do not care what you think. At least I’m living my life and am not a follower but a leader. I am the person who would make sure the emperor knew he had no clothes on. Which would you rather be known as?
