IBM Execs Caught Being Blatantly Sexist Assholes, Surprising No One

[TRIGGER WARNING: CISSEXISM]

Another Lindsey did another something awesome. Okay, she spells it funny, but close enough.

This one had the misfortune to sit next to a bunch of IBM executives while they were discussing, out loud, in a public place, why they don't like hiring women. You could say they don't like hiring people who can get pregnant, but these assholes would probably never hire a trans person unless not doing so somehow threatened their vast fortunes. Anyway, Lyndsay decided to tweet about it.

The conversation came down to "Apparently IBM doesn't like hiring young women because they are 'just going to get themselves pregnant again and again and again'."

You can see the highlights of the live-tweet session here. If IBM wants to apologize, they can write it on the tops of these old white dudes' bald heads and send them out of the building in succession after they've been FIRED, otherwise don't even fucking bother.
