It’s the time of the month to select a new Entitlement Princess of the Month. Last month was an all Scott Aaronson edition, where the three entitlement princess of the month candidates were women who attacked Scott Aaronson. The winner was Amanda Marcotte with 59% of the vote.
The Entitlement Princess of the Month can only keep going with your support so keep submitting new entitlement princesses on the Entitlement Princess of the Month submission page.
This will be a month with no voting. That is because Shanley Kane, this month’s winner, took entitlement princessry to a high level. Kane is one of the many “women in tech” in San Francisco who hang around the tech industry, not actually producing technology, but being a parasite on the tech industry. That alone did not make her Entitlement Princess of the Month. Kane created Model View Culture, a “feminist tech media company”, with a another woman who ended up leaving because, as she described it “working with Kane was like being in an abusive relationship”. When that woman left, Kane completely erased her from Model View Culture taking credit for work she didn’t do by crediting herself as the founder of Model View Culture, not the co-founder.
On top of that Kane spends her time complaining about basic tech terminology, saying that men rape women they start companies with, demanding that Marc Andreessen, the venture capitalist and founder of Netscape, not be allowed on Twitter, demanding that the Linux community kick out Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux, and attacking men like Vivek Wadhwa, an Indian-American technology entrepreneur and academic for what can only be described as not being mangina enough. (That last one is another example of the (white female) war on Indian/Indian-American men in tech.) When it came out that Kane used to have a white nationalist boyfriend, used lots of racial epithets, and likely used to be a racist herself, Kane tried to accuse anyone who had a problem with her racist past of slut shaming and being terrorists.
This is just the tip of the iceberg of her bad behavior and how big of an entitlement princess she is. It’s guaranteed that Kane will not change so we can expect more of the same from her in the future. Kane has worked hard to become the January 2015 Entitlement Princess Of The Month.
