Speak Up Speaks Up About Sexism (or the lack thereof)

In a continuation of the hot-button issue of the moment, the questions raised about why there were no women included in the recent Creativity Now conference, Armin Vit, has responded on Speak Up about what he sees as an absurd argument in his piece “Dealing with ‘Women’ Part 1: The Rant.” And judging from the many, many comments, some angry, some not as much, it was certainly fuel for the fire. Here’s some:

I do what I need to do to get the good jobs and get my name in those lists and those conferences and represent the underrepresented chubby Hispanic designers; if I am not invited or do not get the job I do not cry foul. I just work harder and smarter. And everyone should worry about that alone and not about what is (or isn’t) between their legs as a limitation of their success and the value they might add to this conference in particular. To think like this is short-sighted.
