I can't say for sure.

If they write a blog about.. what's the big deal? They are entitled to write their beliefs? Why not?
The big deal is they weren't discussing marketing, racism and sexism in general terms, they targeted a specific business in an attempt to decrease it's sales.

How would you feel if someone with an axe to grind decided to make an example of you and tried to put you out of business?

I read her article and most of the responses from those who seem to know her....General opinion was that she went into that meeting with an agenda and the poor guy trying to make a sale was blindsided by her already listening attitude.

I expect to see more of this character assisination by the next generation of brain washed idiots coming out of our colleges. They proudly call themselves SJW (Social Justice Warriors) when all they are is low intelligence social misfits with an attitude. And I am holding back in order to be politically correct.

I live part of the time in Argentina. It still annoys me when a waiter hands the check to the male even though I was the one calling for the check and I was the one paying for the meal. Do l tell him that his presumption was degrading of me as an equal member of society. No. Instead I note that everyone makes assumptions and act accordingly.

In business I find very little to no gender based discrimination. I get respect because I earn respect. I don't demand it. My achievement's speak for themselves.

These SJW types are a mindless bunch of indoctrinated losers. IMHO.
I find this very refreshing.
