I read an article in Jezebel that irked me, which is why I don’t usually read Jezebel. I’m not a huge fan of anyone who feels the need to loudly assert that they are a card-carrying feminist. These are the same people who balk when you fail to assert the same and immediately assume that you must be some docile Nazi house wife.
The article mournfully retells the story of a female business blogger, who claims assuming a man’s identity online improved her standing in the fast paced, super-elite world of business blogging (nevermind the fact that her real sex was listed on her blog and available to everyone with two eyes and one functioning finger). In her words:
Business opportunities fell into my lap. People asked for my advice, and they thanked me for it, too.
No hassles. Higher acceptance. And gratifying respect for my talents and round-the-clock work ethic.
