Ellen Pao: No Salary Negotiations For You, Young Missy!

From The Libertarian Republic comes the hilarious news that Ellen Pao has banished all salary negotiations at Reddit on the grounds that women are more frequently likely to be lied to during such transactions, among other things. CNN/Money took it a step further with their headline asking whether negotiations are themselves a form of gender bias, which makes me wonder if they had ever seen True Grit, and particularly, this sequence:

That Pao here infantilizes women is bad enough, but she becomes a hypocrite at the juncture of her recently lost lawsuit, which is nothing if not salary negotiations by other means.
