I'll admit it, I dismissed this thread right away but this content is stellar so far and I've changed my mind.

Alright I'll play along:

Beiser and corporate IT insight
Nomad and mysterious legacies

I had to check who actually said it and, unsurprisingly, it's Zhao.
Poor Zhao. People really jumped on him. But come on. We all know what he's talking about. As men. We all know why he had those mixed feelings about the dancefloor girl, even if they're hard to verbally justify. We all know how the sexual economy works, even if we pretend we don't. Nomad isn't so much pretending as she's playing dumb, or really, she wants the world to be other than it is, so she blames it on a "Virgin Madonna complex," instead of grounding it in the raw economics of sexuality.

Option A: Oppressive biases we must overthrow
Option B: Do I even need to answer that question?

The language is ugly and there's a self aggrandising aspect to it and....
