Rasing over a million dollars: vitriol or glee?
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.
