see from the outset that they will have to work twice as hard to be only equally respected in the industry
When I work with females who do the work, and don't turn into weird drama queens, they get equivalent respect and reward as the guys.
People sometimes get afraid that a female will not be normal at work, and instead reveal herself as some kind of angry, complaining, entitled SJW who believes she is entitled to unearned respect or accolades. (To be fair, guys can show this too, but usually they are shut down faster and harder, because they don't have the "but I'm a girl" card.)
I'm not saying my personal beliefs - I'm saying what others are taking issue with. The Thought Police are taking issue with it being a "Frat Party" because it "excludes women and makes them feel unwanted".
I agree - I think the backlash is because "frat party" is supposed to exclude women. Never mind that "frat" refers to the location, and not the attendees. Any actual "frat party" that I ever attended in college welcomed women with open arms.
So even though the article wasn't true, and it was based on a completely fabricated story by a person who may actually be insane, it's still "important", because it provides ammunition to build up the narrative against those hated (i.e. White and Male) fraternities.
