Fab Was Burning Through $14M/Month Before Its Layoffs And Pivot | TechCrunch
[operational cost low in Berlin. 'running out of cash before traction and revenue starts to climb'] “We have years and years of cash left,” Goldberg notes. It seems that even if there may be new kinds of overhead with the design, building, selling and distributing of furniture, it’s nothing compared to the burn of a startup with hundreds of employees and the challenges of grappling with inventory from dozens and dozens of suppliers. Real estate is one part of that cost base: in New York, Fab paid $250,000 per month for two floors of office space. In Berlin, the company spends $125,000 per year on rent.

What About the Guys Who Do Fit the 'Gay Stereotype'? - Maya Dusenbery - The Atlantic
[ People like to put people in Labeled Boxes. ] "People think gayness has something to do with femininity when really we just need to erase that stereotype from our minds," he said. "LGBT people come in all different types and shapes and forms." [...] "In sports right now, there are two different stereotypes—that there are no gay male athletes, and every female athlete is a lesbian," [...] "Female professional athletes are already gender non-conforming. Male ones are still worshiped as exemplars of traditional masculinity." [...] There's no doubt those are stereotypes that need unpacking. Sociologists have long noted that homophobia is a fundamental ingredient of masculinity in modern American culture. [...] Ever since we've been asking about it in public opinion polls, men have been more likely than women to espouse anti-gay views—a fact that buttressed the theory that masculinity is intimately connected with homophobia[.]
