"She was at a friend's house last Sept. 8, sitting in front of the live stream of the TechCrunch Disrupt hackathon on her laptop and iPhone. Entrepreneurs were showing off www.afroromance.com review
many, And two young australian men, donald Boulton and Jethro Batts, Stood behind the podium to give their demo. 'Titstare is an app where you take photos of yourself gazing tits,' mister. Boulton premiered, As photographs of women's chests on a cellphone flashed on the watch's screen behind him.
"Then tasks got worse. the following day, Pax Dickinson, Who was her business partner in a set up called Glimpse Labs, beyond the chief technology officer of the news site Business Insider, Took to Twitter to defend the Titstare pair against accusations of misogyny.
further, Shevinsky, 35, appears to be quite the veteran of the crossroads where technology and love (Or what sends for love) find. Her LinkedIn profile indicates that she's been the cofounder of several online dating apps and sites. Not that there's anything wrong with this. But it does suggest that Shevinsky can scarcely represent herself as innocent of dating sites and their potential for technologically facilitating insta sex and its variants. often times, The name of these now defunct start ups was MakeOut Labs, And Shevinsky's standard publicity photo shows her grinning flirtatiously by a veil of hair over one eye.
So it does seem a mite hypocritical for Shevinsky to have gotten feministically huffy all of a sudden herein she wrote for Business Insider shortly after quitting Glimpse:
Just to start, one particular TitStare "event" Was a faiytale (an attractive funny one, even) Whose focus on, contrary, has not been women but horny guys (you can view it here on Valleywag, Whose crafting articles staff is, or at least pretends to be, surely outraged). there seemed to be, yet still, At least one child in the TechCrunch end user, And TechCrunch later apologized for TitStare and another off color joke speech.
Naturally the New York Times dutifully presented the Shevinsky incident as the grounds why there are relatively few women in tech: "Brogramming" Culture really makes them feel out of place. No mention of the fact that most women don't want to be in tech to begin with. They're notoriously underrepresented in the college STEM fields that would qualify them to work as programmers or engineers. (It should be noted that according to Shevinsky's LinkedIn profile, Her own academic heritage is business, Not computer.) But instead of focusing on right after between the sexes that account for their career choices, The aim seems to impose the strident humorlessness of feminist ideology on all places where men work.
