Pando: The Free Market that goes around, comes around
But this also boils down to the difference between sexism and misogyny. A lot of people use them interchangeably, but according to philosopher Kate Manne, sexism is the belief system that holds up the patriarchy. Misogyny is the tool by which it is enforced. Sexism is universal-- we are all victims of it. Misogyny is only deployed when needed. If you are the “right” kind of woman, you may not experience misogyny. If you are a white woman-- for instance-- pitching a VC who only preys on Asian women, you may never know of his dark side.

This is important to keep in mind over the next few months, because shit is about to explode. Many women will likely be horrified learning of the other side of a male mentor who may have been helpful for us. Don’t fall into the cool girl/“good guy” trap. Wait, watch, and listen for the evidence.
