The votes are in for the February 2013 Entitlement Princess Of The Month. The winner with 63% of the vote is Megan Thode, who was submitted by Paul Murray. She was the woman who sued Lehigh University for $1.3 million because she got a C+ in one of her classes. The Entitlement Princess of the Month award can’t keep going without your support. Remember to keep submitting new entitlement princesses on the Entitlement Princess of the Month submission page.
This month is one of those months where the winner is so obvious that there will be no voting. The March 2013 Entitlement Princess of the Month is Adria Richards. She has set a new standard in being an entitlement princess with her behavior during and after her infamous tweet. As I’m sure everyone knows by now, Adria Richards is responsible for this tweet during this year’s PyCon conference:
This tweet alone is filled with entitlement on Adria Richard’s part. She thinks she has the right to butt into a private conversation that was in no way about her or relevant to her. She also thinks she can redefine the English language to make the phrase “forking a repo” (or “forking a repository”) which has no sexual innuendo associated with into a sexual phrase. She also took this picture without the permission of anyone in this picture, potentially violating laws like the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, although I’m sure Adria Richards doesn’t think the law applies to her.
Hypocrisy is a common feature of an entitlement princess, and Adria Richards is no exception. She thinks that men don’t have the right to make penis jokes privately, but she can do so publicly on Twitter:
On top of all this, Adria Richards has also pulled these stunts before and has refused to take responsibility for what she did trying to blame everything of the tech industry being racist and sexist. She has worked hard at beating out every other entitlement princess out there with her entitlement so she gets this month’s entitlement princess award. At the rate she is going, Adria Richards could be the first and only entitlement princess to get the monthly entitlement princess award a second time.
