Equality Now! Archie CEO Accused Of Sexual Harassment

And, she’s a girl!



Source: Archie Co-CEO, Nancy Silberkleit, Accused Of Harassing And Stalking Employees

Hot (well, not so much anymore) off the sexual harassment discussion sparked by Tess Fowler comes news that women can be just as big of assholes (allegedly) as men. According to BleedingCool (and a bunch of other articles I’ve read but can’t remember) Nancy Silberkleit, co-CEO of Archie Comics, is being sued by two men for gender discrimination, stalking, and being an (alleged) horrible all around person.

From BleedingCool:

Reports say she has referred to male employees as “penis” instead of by name….

The new $32.5 million lawsuit includes claims that Silberkleit has stalked employees, made veiled threats and used intimidation that included asking about a handgun that her husband had kept in the office and bringing in Hell’s Angles to scare the employees. They are seeking a court order to keep Silberkleit at least two miles away from the offices.

Wow, what a…an unpleasant person.

Now, for the juicy part, “Silberkleit’s lawyer responded by saying the case should be thrown out because white males are not a “protected class”.”

There you go, comment section, have your fun.

I hope this case is treated with the consideration it deserves, and if her lawyer actually said that, he/she is a moron. Yes, legally, "white men" are not a protected class, but that doesn't mean you can do whatever you want to them; it means that laws applying *only* to them are not required to pass "strict scrutiny".

If this thing blows up, this line will be the cause of so much outrage and stupidy, it just might break the internet.

I can't wait.

In papers filed in Westchester Supreme Court, Nancy Silberkleit's lawyer says a gender discrimination lawsuit filed against her earlier this year by a group of Archie Comics employees should be tossed in part because white guys aren’t members of “a protected class.”

The embattled co-CEO's filing also mocked the five employees’ claim that she’d used her “gender as a weapon” by yelling “Penis! Penis! Penis!” during a business meeting.  

“Plaintiffs fail to allege that any such comments were directed at any of the plaintiffs in particular, or they could cause extreme emotional distress even if they had been,” her court filings say.

The lawyers for the plaintiffs, who include Archie president Mike Pellerito and editor-in-chief Victor Gorelick, countered that Silberkleit used the anatomical term many, many times.“[T]he word ‘penis’ became somewhat of a campaign slogan and her preferred method of referring to employees in lieu of their names,” their new filing says.

I think she should get the exact same treatment that a guy would if he called his female employees a similar word and treated them the same.

Won't happen, though.
