Bumble IPO: Is Whitney Wolfe's "role model" image for women insulting and white privilege or is it just me?https://techcrunch.com/2014/07/09/whitney-wolfe-vs-tinder/
LOVE supporting and celebrating women when due, but is it just me that gets insulted/feels unfair when Whitney Wolfe is constantly hailed in press (and by everyone) as a icon/role model for (and often as the "first" to X, Y, etc. among) businesswomen?Per ^ linked TechCrunch's Jordan Crook's article: 1. Often listed as Tinder "co-founder," when she interview for/joined as a Field Sales Rep contractor for an unrelated CC loyalty app, Cardify, in the same incubator (got job from knowing CMO's sister and then-gf), advocated by said CMO to be hired over to Tinder 7mos later as VP Marketing AFTER sister venture/parent company shutdown, SLEEPS WITH/dates said CMO, used co-founder title in press when she "wasn't"/"shouldn't be" (per attached quotes from article and never seen a co-founder who didn't have a C-level title) before said CMO caved to "help her career" and co-founder title was GIVEN to her.2. Cheats on said CMO or simultaneously dates her now-husband who's richer and more powerful/connected, dramatically quits in front of everyone at company party, then SUES said CMO for "sexual harassment, discrimination, and being forced out."3. Consequently discovered and HANDED dating app idea (that she pivots to because she didn't want anything to do w/ dating apps), company, funding, and shared "engineering team" by Russian Badoo dating app founder (who owned 80% of Bumble pre-Blackstone acquisition, meaning she owned 20% pre-sale), said shared/outsourced overseas Badoo engineering team/then-parent company built Bumble and does all of the engineering to this day, w/ Bumble team being entirely marketing and customer support (per bloomberg.com/news/features/2020-01-17/for-bumble-the-future-isn-t-female-it-s-female-marketing)Certainly a marketing/PR pro (as are a lot of PR girls) who's ambitious, pretty, (therefore?) connected, and achieved a lot (whether earned, via merit, or luck from her looks), but is it not a case of white privilege and being handed titles, companies, and everything, case-after-case? The League, a profitable competitor founded by a CS major/Stanford MBA also calls Bumble a "fake startup" (per techcrunch.com/2019/08/20/this-is-your-life-in-silicon-valley-league-founder-amanda-bradford/), is Whitney's founder title or recognition (mainly of "firsts" in this case, young woman to IPO) also insulting or unfair to you founders who've actually conceived an idea, been there from Day 0, and built a product/managed engineers, or I am just envious of someone who hasn't had to actually work for their founder titles and accompanying recognition?
