Ellen Pao’s spectacular immolation of Reddit is the capstone to her joke of a career.
Pao first exploded into the public eye when she sued her previous employer, Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield and Byers, for gender discrimination.Despite the fact that her suit was dismissed—and despite evidence that she sued her employer to cover up her poor job performance—Pao received accolades from the mainstream media and feminists for taking a stand against “sexism” in tech.Taking over as CEO of Reddit was an opportunity for Pao to prove her naysayers wrong.Instead, she’s confirmed everything that Kleiner Perkins said about her and more.Ellen Pao is a prime example of “failing upwards” in the corporate world and an exemplar of how women can get ahead in life by simply crying oppression and claiming to be victims of misogyny.From day one of her hiring as Reddit’s CEO, Ellen Pao has been implementing bizarre policies based on her radical feminist beliefs.
