Earlier, we told you about washingtonpost.com’s new ad campaign featuring these ginormous hands. Now, Erik Wemple unearth’s a campaign within washingtonpost.com to stop the ads.
The offended parties are seven anonymous women who apparently work in and around the confines of washingtonpost.com’s offices. Via a March 6 letter, they protest the presence of dot-com’s big hand, on every sort of modern, politically correct count in the book. Hereâ€™s a sampling:
“To see this big white male hand as we walk into work each morning is a sharp reminder of our past difficulties and, obviously, how far we have yet to go to overcome bias and workplace oppression.”
Ridiculous? Sort of. Even Wemple wonders if this is just one big joke.
