  1. I'm confused - why did he even let her pitch, if he doesn't invest in women?

  2. For the power and thrill of saying "No" after she had poured out her heart.

  3. Sadly, this probably isn't even in the top 10 stupid traits of VC's. I've had to pitch to them, and frankly they don't impress me anymore. This whole asshole persona many of them foster is part of a dominance game. Heck, the comment about not investing in women might be part of the bargaining. Anything to break the other party down so they will accept outrageous terms.

  4. "for example, my wife cannot prioritize her to do list..."

    I am continually lectured by my friends and family that good will prevail (over evil), but every day I am given examples of how far off we are from a positive, high functioning society.

  5. So wait, rather than people who know how to make good investments, many venture capitalists are just sexist, racist morons who happen to have a lot of money? I'm so glad we have a system where we need their permission to bring new products to market.
