Last week, the New York Times' first female executive editor Jill Abramson was unceremoniously fired; it was rumored that a salary dispute was the cause (the New Yorker reports that her starting salary was $84,000 less than that of her male predecessor, which the Times denies).
This, plus the language used by her colleagues to describe her management style — "mercurial and brusque" in the Times article about her ouster, since changed to "mercurial and polarizing," "pushy," etc. — has led many to believe that sexism had a hand in her termination. But now one brave soul has emerged out of the shadows to say what no one has yet dared: it wasn't because of sexism, guys. It's because misandry.
