Rasing over a million dollars: vitriol or glee?

No comments

Remember when everyone got all annoyed with Amanda Palmer (and the rest of the band, though the vilification was for Amanda alone) for raising over a million dollars?

Remember when everyone got annoyed with Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion for raising over a million dollars in like a day? 

Oh, right, that didn't happen.

I support both projects, FWIW.  I backed both projects.  I think it's very interesting that a female led project got a lot more criticism and vitriol than a male led project...like the potato salad guy. Or Tudyk and Fillion.

There's a lot of truth to the idea that the same behavior is interpreted differently based on the gender of the person exhibiting the behavior.

I'm challenging you to check yourself - hard, unflinching - for biases.

Can you?
