I will never understand.
And this debate has intensified in the last few weeks--boys against girls--there are new players, and, while I *SO* appreciate the female authors and others who are standing up for equality, I haven't felt the need to weigh in. . . .
Remember Stacey Jay and this?
I hate to even bring her name into this again, because she wants peace and quiet and I totally respect that.
But how is it fair for her to be bullied into leaving the internet and for this guy to raise over $100k to fund his next two books?
How is this fair?
Where is the backlash?
Because I'm not seeing it.
Eric Ries (bless him, don't know him) asked Can a Book Be a Startup?
Apparently, it can.
So someone should tell Stacey, and someone should tell every troll who posted rude, nasty, and threatening comments over her startup.
I'm so over this. It's exhausting.
Stand up for what you believe in, people. Keep the conversation going. This can't keep happening.
It just can't.
