Oh, great. Breitbart has created a new “Tech” section, to be run by non-techie, non-gamer, non-competent poser, Milo Yiannopoulos. The only thing I can imagine even close to that miscasting was the Discovery Institute’s appointment of the young gerbil, Casey Luskin, to write science articles.
Well, I’ll give ’em a chance. I took a look at Breitbart Tech. First article that caught my eye: APOSEMATISM MAY EXPLAIN WHY SO MANY ANGRY WOMEN HAVE BLUE HAIR. Oooh! Science!
Actually, the whole article uses the conceit that dying your hair blue is an example of aposematism — the use of warning coloration to discourage predators — and that is sufficient excuse to list the usual roster of feminists who have dyed their hair different colors with sneering, nasty descriptions. No evidence is given for anything, let alone the thesis of the title, it’s all nothing but a boring attempt to slime a group of women.
And as for that thesis — have they considered that maybe it isn’t about warning people away, as much as it is about being free from the idea of having to please men’s desires and being able to be adventurous in their styles? If they really want to push this idea, maybe they should try applying it to Milo’s own habit of coloring his hair.
I just checked again, and the prominent lead article to the section is now “MEET THE SHE-E-OS: WHY DO SO MANY FEMALE TECH CEOS TURN OUT TO BE DISAPPOINTMENTS OR FRAUDS?” I’m sensing a theme.
Having Milo as the editor of a tech section just means it’s going to be more of a misogyny section.
