Alexia is the editor of TechCrunch. And that means she’s a competitor to the sites that regularly call out sexism, subtle or overt, that pops up in our industry. So she goes without defense.
Not only does she go without defense from her peers in the industry, it’s actually one of her peers calling her stupid.
Which is fine, she’s very tough. But if you see her today, let her know how much you respect her. She won’t show it, but comments like these might even be somewhat more ego-shattering than that time Jessica Livingston had someone hit on her at a bar.
And for Paul – if he takes a moment to think about it – he might even agree that some comments should be out of bounds.
