Ever wanted to be a fly on the wall at an executive lunch? Yeah, neither have we. But a young mom was involuntarily privy to an alleged conversation between IBM executives that revealed the tech industry’s deep-seated sexism.
Totally against her will she was spying on a conversation between two people she didn't know.
The best part? Lyndsay Kirkham live-tweeted the entire chauvinistic conversation.
Well when you are subjected to other people's private conversations, the only thing you can do is make the best of it by relaying it to the world on Twitter.
The worst part? It was her birthday.
People are having conversations on MY BIRTHDAY with no consideration of how those conversations make ME feel. The indignities never end.
And the kicker? She’s a coder, and a feminist writer. You can’t make this stuff up.
Oh can't you?
In exchange for having to endure the infuriating conversation, Kirkham did what any human with a smartphone would do: she live-tweeted the entire exchange.
Sadly, this is probably truer than I would like to believe.
Prepare to be enraged.
Oh, I am prepared.
