Babble, the content mill that seems to employ pretty much every blogger out there, appears to have been cut loose by Disney Interactive. According to the “cupcakemag” instagram:
I have made some of the best friends from babble. and when I heard that this family of mine had all been laid-off by Disney, I shed tears and I haven’t been able to think straight. i’ve been morning a loss, a terrible loss. they helped shape me as a writer in so many ways, they have given me amazing opportunities and pep talks that I will never forget. as of now babble continues without them + honestly, I can’t imagine not having them by my side. my heart is so heavy for all of them, it’s been a sad day.
When asked what happened, she replied she has “no idea” but writers were “told to continue with biz as usual, just don’t know how”. There seems to be no confirmation on what exactly is going down anywhere on Babble’s official social media or website. But if Disney has indeed put Babble out on an ice floe a lot of “professional bloggers” will probably be needing a new income stream soon.
Alpha Game, a site for all those ‘red pill’ MRA’s, wants to clear up a mystery of the tech world – where are all those women programmers that graduated 10 years ago? Well, they have the answer:
They dropped out because programming demands single-minded focus, mathematical skill, logic, and most of all, individual accountability. They dropped out because they didn’t belong in the field and encouraging them to pursue it was doing them a serious career disservice.
AG then explains why we should stop telling dem uppity wimmins to explore careers in tech:
As a general rule, women don’t like competitive jobs where they are held to an objective standard, particularly when they cannot easily pass off their work to others and still take credit for it.
He adds that even if women get CS degrees, once they get out in the real world of code monkeying they “look at their prospects for competitive success and promptly go in for marketing, human resources, and management”.
This is why Girls Who Code and Black Girls Code will fail, just like every other women-in-technology initiative before it has failed…Throw in the fact that male programmers tend to be competitive and socially graceless, which means that relatively few of them are inclined to do a woman’s job for her in return for the well-practiced flash of a big smile and a few smug coos of appreciation, and it should be no surprise that even intelligent and well-trained women don’t tend to last long in the industry.
Yes, apparently men actually write code, and women just go around smiling and flirting in order to get the nerdy codeb0yz to do their work for them. Seriously, what company is he working at? Because all I’ve experienced is women having to work twice as hard for half the respect. If there’s a place where I can call myself a ‘woman in tech’ while sitting around leveling up in Tetris then please, sign me up. Otherwise this all just sounds like typical male whining about icky girls invading their He-Man Woman Hater’s treehouse.
Jordan Reid, pregnant again, is once more blathering on about how she will bravely flash her vagina while pregnant. You may remember during her last incubation she insisted on wearing platform shoes and coochie cutter shorts – even banning a commenter who said she might want to stop trying to dress like a groupie. Well this time around she’s eliminated pants altogether:
So, yes, the dress I’m wearing here is actually an H&M button-down I bought a few sizes too big. And ok, yes, this is the second time in a week I have worn dresses that are not dresses at all but rather shirts. But that is a) what tights are for and b) my prerogative, am I right?
Jordan spent most of her first pregnancy being the Norma Rae of maternity fashion rights, and it looks like we are in for another round of Jordan trying to justify her idiotic attention whoring clothing choices. Because running around a playground in February wearing nothing but a too big flannel shirt and some hosiery is totally fine and nobody should side eye for that, people. Jordan needs to feel sexy and stylish no matter what! Girl power!
For someone who claims not to care what people think about her outfits she sure spends a lot of time getting preemptively defensive about her “prerogative”.
