#WheelWomen, misogynist bracelets, rape jokes, and more! 10 tweets on sexism at #SXSW

Classy!

Color us non-shocked. Despite the dominance of libs and progressives, the South by Southwest technology/media/music confab in Austin, Texas, is not the Kumbaya lovefest it’s cracked up to be. Accusations of sexism have plagued the conference in the past. This year is no different. Can you imagine if the above-photographed wristbands were photographed at CPAC instead of #SXSW?

Here’s just a small taste of the complaints of objectification, marginalization, and misogyny against women at the event floating on Twitter.

Makes the “binders full of women” kerfuffle look even more kerfuffle-y-ish, no?
