  1. Kat I read the article from THE CUT about Ellen Pao, and feel we share more then a first name. She was objectified as a sexueal being at a VENTURE CAPITOL firm by men who were smart but who could not find women willeing to have s-x with them. I feel that in my past job’s, my bosses just used me to stare at my boobies or to pat my tuchus as I walked by trying to do my job. When I worked for the goverment in DC, the senior lawyers all just thought of me as a dummy who got into law school b/c of my looks, and kept up my GPA by doeing sexueal stuff with the professor’s. FOOEY, b/c that was NOT true, but even the professors thought b/c I was cute that I was to dumb to even know that they wanted to sleep with me (and do stuff in bed). But MOM warned me about men who wanted to have s-x with student’s so I did NOT ever go back to a professor’s apartement with them b/c I knew what they wanted to do. That is what I think Ellen Pao must have felt when her bosses thought of her in a sexueal way. We women MUST stick together in the hive and protest against men who just want for us to pull our panties down for them. That is NOT why we went to school to study hard. We are NOT interested in being objectified for sexueal objects by men who can NOT otherwise get us to have s-x with them. If we do NOT it is b/c we are NOT attracted to them. Why cant men just understand this and back off when we tell them we do NOT want to have s-x with them? FOOEY!
