Ask me anything   Don't panic - just another vegan feminist. Perth, WA. Instagram & Twitter: @demabu.

"But she is not just a 37-year-old woman on a massive shopping spree."

Say what you want about Marissa Mayer and Yahoo’s acquisition of Tumblr, but this line just floored me. In a national newspaper? Would the same have been said about a 57-year-old male CEO making business decisions? Or even a 37-year-old one? 

Men make acquisitions. Women “go shopping”.
