Meet Pax Dickinson. He’s the Chief Technology Officer at Business Insider, a fast growing tech news website. The CTO is a pretty high-level position. They are pretty much responsible for the technology side of a business.
Along with being the CTO of a large web company, Pax Dickinson just happens to also be a mega sexist asshole.
No, scratch that. Pax Dickinson is a mega sexist asshole, who just happens to be the CTO of a large web company.
Cool shades, tech bro.
At first glance, Pax Dickinson just seems to be your classic straight white male brogrammer. Perhaps he’s casually sexist; come on lighten up and take a joke, ladies; and believes that there is absolutely no gender problem in the tech world. It’s not his fault girls are into girly things and don’t have an interest in learning manly code.
It seems like sometime in the past 24 hours, Pax Dickinson discovered the online outrage over Titstare dot com, the app that was presented at TechCrunch Disrupt yesterday that encourages man to take creepshots of themselves staring at tits. Pax Dickinson did not take kindly to the claims that this app, which he has no connection to whatsoever and one could assume it’s sort of odd someone with no vested interest in the damn thing would take to heart such claims, was sexist and misogynistic.
Look at the grown man say thinks such as it’s OK to “not take a woman seriously” and “enjoy boobies.”
As you can imagine, the rant of a sexist madmen who holds a high position at a growing web company in an industry that runs rampant with misogyny caught the attention of many people on Twitter.
So, while Pax Dickinson was busy being an Internet tough guy, my fingers went ahead and looked through Pax Dickinson’s 4 year plus Twitter history. I thought, there is no way this guy who says acts of sexism and misogyny are not, in fact, acts of sexism and misogyny would actually partake in even more blatant acts of sexism and misogyny. There is NO WAY.
Ooo, look! He’s homophobic and classist too!
Now, you may have seen some of these tweets on Valleywag or on Twitter. But, come on, that’s it? WE HAVE TO GO DEEPER, PEOPLE. Deep, deep into the history of one Pax Dickinson’s Twitter history. And when you do, you find this…
P.S. As you can see from this tweet, and to no surprise whatsoever, our sexist tech bro Pax Dickinson, is also a freedom and liberty (for privileged straight white males) libertarian.
This tweet is especially funny juxtaposed with his tweet about starting a family on minimum wage. The libertarian mind doth not think very much.
As you read this next tweet, remember Pax Dickinson is a CTO at a tech company and the tech industry certainly does not have a gender problem…
And while Business Insider doesn’t seem to care that Pax Dickinson says these things as the CTO of their company, I leave you with this…
Pax Dickinson, perhaps realizing he went too far, followed that tweet with this…
Pax Dickinson: CTO of Businesser Insider, tech bro, and proof that libertarianism is a scourge.
