Tech-industry sexism is well-documented, yet the harassment and discrimination lawsuit brought by Whitney Wolfe against the mobile app company Tinder, its parent Match.com and majority shareholder IAC is especially poignant: Tinder is a dating app that owes its success partly to Wolfe's marketing efforts targeting young women."
You’d think a government agency would have the common sense not to insult the millions of people who depend on its services in order to afford an education. Government agency and not being offensive, yeah I’m amazed I typed that with a straight face. Unfortunately this was not the case...
