Bank Behind That “Fearless Girl” Statue Systemically Discriminated Against Hundreds of Female Employees. I Wish I Were Even a Little Surprised
Today in 'unsurprising hypocrisy'
We're not new to the idea that some people use feminism and other forms of perceived wokeness as a sort of commodified deflection shield, attempting to buy themselves goodwill they can then exploit by trampling those they claim to support. This is not something we haven't seen before.

Though designed to take down websites, #RefRef is not merely an iteration on the LOIC but functions in an entirely new way.
