The idea for this site came about because my wife was complaining about the constant private messages she was getting on LinkedIn from creepy men wanting to use the site as if it were a dating site and not a site for professionals to connect.
Not the first time
In the past I have blogged about particular individuals (like David Stewart) who think it is OK to creep on women and other people have since contacted me with similar stories and screen grabs.
I thought I would make a space were people could call out these idiots.
Not just for women
I imagine that some of the victims in these situations are going to be women, but I’m sure this probably happens to men/non-binary folk too. I would definitely publish something anyone shared that they felt was inappropriate – Assholery is Assholery.
Plans for the future
Right now the site is relatively unpolished – If the idea takes off and I start getting more submissions I will build out the site some more and allow people to share things a little more easily. I will also set up social media accounts for the site at some point as well.
