Woman live tweets IBM execs discussing why they don’t hire women, tries not to throw up

Toronto-based editor Lyndsay Kirkham has started a firestorm this week after overhearing what was apparently an incredibly sexist conversation between IBM executives at lunch — and live-tweeting it.

Unaware that they were transmitting sexist nonsense to cyberspace, the IBM executives openly discussed “why they don’t hire women.” If you take Kirkham’s account at its word, it actually gets way worse.

But wait, there’s more Follow micdotcom

This drives me mad. I used to work in a bookstore, and was talking to my coworker and he just yelled out “stop flirting with me!” at this ridiculous volume and it was humiliating because
1. I wasn’t
2. I got in trouble for acting unprofessional
3. He embarrassed me in front of a line of people
4. And he only stopped insisting that I was flirting when my boyfriend (who is now my husband) said, “dude, trust me, she’s not flirting with you” to him

That asshole respected my BOYFRIEND saying I wasn’t flirting more than he respected me saying it and I was the one who was talking! The whole scene got me in trouble at work. And the most ridiculous part is we were talking about a fucking book. In a bookstore.

One time, my ex boyfriend had a crush on some girl, and said that he thought he might have “a chance” with her.

When I asked him what made him think that, he said “Well, she talks to me.”

And this is why it is so difficult to be a girl and be friends with men who are attracted to women.

Can we also add that this is why a lot of women do the resting bitch face when out in public. Cause dudes swear a glance or a smile is flirting.

I finished Order of the Phoenix today. It’s my favorite of the series for a bunch of reasons. It holds my absolute favorite chapter of all 7 books. And as you can see, I highlight and underline most of it.

But the biggest reason it’s my favorite is because Harry is finally human. He’s got an enormous character flaw that finally breaks through the.entire.book. Yes, he’s been sassy and had attitude in the first 4 books. But he is so incredibly short-tempered in this one. He’s moody, angsty—a teenager. From a writer’s perspective, it’s kind of cool to see a completely, good-natured character, have this super big character flaw. I love when he yells and gets angry at…literally everyone. I love Phineas and his few lines.

And in case you were wondering, my favorite chapter of all the books is chapter 37 of Order of the Phoenix, The Lost Prophecy. 

what have you done to the book you’re a monster 

I love the OP’s comments and agree. But oh my god that poor book.

As an English major, this is extremely common, and other English majors (at least from my university) can back me up. Sorry.

McDonald’s worker arrested after telling company president she can’t afford shoes.

"A woman who has been employed by the McDonald’s Corporation for over 10 years says she was arrested last week after she confronted the company president at a meeting and told him she couldn’t afford to buy shoes or food for her children.

Nancy Salgado, 26, told The Real News that she felt like she had to speak out during McDonald’s USA President Jeff Stratton’s speech at the Union League Club of Chicago on Friday for the sake of her children.

“It’s really hard for me to feed my two kids and struggle day to day,” she shouted as Stratton was speaking. “Do you think this is fair, that I have to be making $8.25 when I’ve worked for McDonald’s for ten years?”

“I’ve been there for forty years,” Stratton replied from the podium.

“The thing is that I need a raise. But you’re not helping your employees. How is this possible?” Salgado asked.

At that point, someone approached Salgado and informed her that she was going to be arrested.

She later recalled the encounter to The Real News’ Jessica Desvarieux.

“The strength was very powerful, like, just remembering the face of my kids, like I say, you know, just simple things like I can’t provide a pair of shoes like everybody else does, sometimes every month, or anything like that,” she said. “And he needs to know we are what all the employees at McDonald’s are going through. We’re struggling day to day to provide our needs in our houses, things for our kids. And it’s just–it gets harder and harder with just the poverty wage they have us living in.”

“They just told me, you know, well, you’re being under arrest because you just interrupted, you trespassed the property. You’re just going to go to jail,” Salgado added. “And what I remember just telling them, ‘well, like, so, because I have to speak out my mind and I had to tell the president the poverty wage I’m living in, that’s just against the law?’ You know, just be able to speak up your mind and say, you know what, I can’t survive with $8.25? It’s just — it’s ridiculous that I’m going to get arrested. You know.”

Salgado, who is still working at McDonald’s, said she had her hours cut following the arrest and feared further retaliation.

“The CEOs make millions and billions a year and why can’t they provide enough for their employees?” she wondered.”

I think that this is beyond awful for many reasons. People can’t afford to live off of the wages that they are given currently, and can’t even speak out against it. I know tumblr is great for spreading important news like this, so please help me get the word out to support this woman.

Some of you are really cool folks and stuff, but you sometimes reblogs from people who either harrased me or harrased one of my friends and it just, really stressing…

I’m making this post as a “please, like/reblog this post if it’s okay to adress this and let you know about this person”.

In the same way, if I ever reblog from someone who is known for doing terrible things, please let me know and I’ll keep it in private if that’s your wish.

Flame has a SEVERELY BROKEN PELVIS, TAIL, and LEG/ELBOW (with BONE EXPOSED and jutting through her skin)… as well as… possible HEAD TRAUMA. She has significant eye injury. She will be in the hospital at least through the weekend and seeing an orthopedist/other specialists on Monday morning for SURGERY and REHABILITATION next steps. She is on long-acting pain medication, IV fluids, and antibiotics
Despite all of this, Flame continues to win over all of her caregivers with her incredibly SWEET DISPOSITION, POSITIVE ATTITUDE, and WILL TO LIVE. She is bright and alert… and super affectionate. She is trying to walk but just can’t put any weight on her limbs…. yet. So, she drags her body around. And, anyone that visits her, well, Flames showers them in kisses and headbutts.
Every life matters. Every life deserves a chance.
