Nasty Gal’s nasty woman problem.

In Hillary’s nasty woman brigade I quoted from an opinion piece in Business Insider about ugly feminists embracing the term “nasty woman”.

Since Trump made that statement, women around the country have taken up “nasty woman” as a rallying cry against Trump, and a moniker, the same way Trump’s supporters took up deplorables.

The difference here is that for Trump, his naming mistake could be fatal.

The author offered up the company Nasty Gal as an example of women embracing feminist ugliness:

Sophia Amoruso, the founder of a clothing company, Nasty Gal, changed the name of her website to Nasty Woman.

Amoruso is a modern feminist icon, with a bestselling book titled #GIRLBOSS.

Just two weeks later, Nasty Gal and Amoruso are the subject of a new Business Insider article:

Hot clothing company Nasty Gal is reportedly filing for bankruptcy, Re/code reports.

Founder Sophia Amoruso, who founded the company as an eBay shop in 2006 when she was 22, will also step down as executive chairwoman.

Among other problems, Nasty Gal is being sued for allegedly being nasty to the gals who work there.  Racked wrote in November of 2015:  Nasty Gal Sued by Former Employee Who Was Fired After Undergoing a Heart Transplant

Nasty Gal’s alleged discriminatory practices aren’t leaving many #GirlBosses left at the company. The company, which is already being sued by four women who claim they were fired because they became pregnant, is now being accused of firing a woman for falling seriously ill, according to The Fashion Law.

The plaintiff, Farah Saberi, is suing Nasty Gal for letting her go after she underwent surgery to receive a heart transplant. Despite maintaining a 40-hour work week upon returning to work, Saberi received a demotion and then her walking papers.

Nasty.

As recode notes in their article on the bankruptcy, this is a blow to nasty women everywhere:

…it goes without saying that while it’s a bad day for Nasty Gal, it is also one for Nasty Women all over.

    Let us hope that Mizz Amoruso is stuck with millions of dollars worth of unsaleable inventory.

    I’m laughing on the inside, but truth be told……….you’re probably correct.

  11. Sadly, I think you’d lose a trademark infringement suit from “Dick’s Sporting Goods”. Though you would figure out who the bigger Dick is.

    So, there’s that.

  12. Anon says:

    The ‘feminist’ shoggoths will probably double down. They will get even more fervent in their ‘nasty’ personas, and add flatulence as a core portion of their identity.

    Doubling down is all they know.

  13. Days of Broken Arrows says:

    Hey, at least she lived up to her name! Firing someone after a heart transplant is the definition of nasty. Truth in advertising! She should brag about that.

  14. Anon says:

    feeriker,

    She almost certainly is. Very few women can forecast well, and none of those devote much of their mental energy towards ‘feminism’.

    No wonder her bankruptcy is so immediate.

    That said, Hillary’s loss need not damage her business. It could actually increase it, if she knew how to position her marketing as the rebellious opposition.

    The reason “Nasty Women” clothing didn’t sell is because most Western women don’t need to advertise what most of us know.

  18. It was worth it.
    Empty and worthless all around, devoid of merit and any substance.
    But being able to parade around in feminist triumphalism as a “nasty woman” for all to see is apparently worth all of the colossal fail that inevitably follows.

    @ Caspar Reyes –

    From that hilarious “reality punched me in the pocketbook” article:

    “camera operators are usually men because of the heavy equipment”

    What the what? What about all the ass-kicking girl power, or the notion that 5’3″ 110 lb women are in every way equal to 6’3″ 220 lb men? What about the social construct?!

    @Dalrock

    Nice post Mr.’D’.I know some women business owners and they are NASTY! It is no accident that 62% of government employees here in Canada are wimminz……yet,women owned and run business’s only contribute less than 5% to the country’s GDP.Also,government has mandated that 30% of directors of public companies should be women?…..WTF. About 6 years ago I took a run at a publicly traded real estate holdings company in Montreal.I became a director of that company(which was based on the stoppage of my accumulation of said company’s stock).Anyhoo,the company had 12 directors,3 of the women.I fired all 3 of them…..and all the other male directors stood behind me.In fact,they told the CEO and founder of the company…”we have been trying to figure out what the hell they even do around here”. As the 2nd largest share holder next to the founder and CEO I was able to pull the other directors on my side.The CEO was worried about “feminazi backlash”.We could be charged with “discrimination”.It never happened.We could prove their ineptness,incompetence etc.Women in board rooms is a major liability!

    LP,

    That article is hilarious. Her tears are almost as delicious as the free pancakes I’m about to go eat at IHOP because I’m a veteran and it’s Veteran’s Day (that’s Armistice Day for you non-Yanks).

    The breathless hyperbole ought to alarm me – the fact that a major publication can seriously print what any sane person would immediately identify as satire if he didn’t know better should be cause for alarm – but SJWs have jumped the shark and cried wolf so many times that nobody with an ounce of sense pays them the slightest bit of attention except to mock them… even most white women aren’t buying into their hype anymore. That’s not to say that American females are out of the woods yet, but it shows that even with a non-stop fire-hose of lies and slander against Trump, men, and white people for the past year, more than half of the ones who voted no longer feel obligated to favor the “sisterhood” with their votes.

    It amazes me that the left is so myopic about their love for their nonsense that they just assume every “Right Thinking Person” (TM) will naturally agree with every bit of their narrative, and the only reason anyone would dare to even breathe the faintest objection is because he’s a hateful, white, bigoted, misogynist… or a self-hating woman/minority with Stockholm Syndrome.

    Can somebody tell me why we let these people vote?

  27. Hmm says:

    @LP
    I think it’s interesting that white women more closely stuck with white men in their voting than other women. Maybe they’ve seen some of the devastation that offshoring and easy immigration have wrought to their white- and blue-collar husbands and households.

  28. Fiddlesticks says:

    Feminist author Katrina Alcorn experienced the same angst with her “feminist” boss in her book “Maxed Out.”

    Her forays into the white-collar workforce weren’t the glamorous, showoffy fun of Cosmo lore, but corporate-sweatshop drudgery. (shocker) Her boss was a Sheryl Sandberg, Lean In type who mercilessly ran her ragged even as she juggled a young family.

    She doesn’t learn anything from this however, clinging to the narrative that gov could have fixed her problems by mandating shorter hours or helping her with expenses.

    No amount of gov is going to make drudge work exciting, make demanding customers go away, or make life with a slacker hubby as comfortable as life with a hardworking provider.

    If anything, the battle lines are more clearly drawn than ever before as the feminists double and triple down on that narrative.

    The most privileged young women anywhere, in the history of the universe, are still victims…

    Her narrative is wrong, but Erin Gloria Ryan’s thesis statement–that Feminism isn’t Free–is 100% correct. Not only isn’t Feminism free; it’s monstrously expensive.

    One of the great things I’ve learned from reading Dalrock, Vox, Sailer, etc. is that the Left often has a clearer vision of the way the world really is at this moment, and where they want to go. The Right usually dreams about the past, and waits for “nature to take its course”; sleepily wondering how long things can go on. The Right murmurs to itself that one day Leftism will all burn down. The Left sets fires, and then stokes them.

    Don’t misunderstand me: In the end Jesus Christ comes and takes all. But in the mean time: Who wins in our daily lives? While we’re waiting for The End, our sons and daughters to witness our correctness that we were right, the Left convinces them that their way is better.

    LP-,

    Another winner! I was OD’ing on the videos of Klinton’s Krazy Kabal weeping after the election, and now that they’ve had a chance to dry their eyes, they’re busily cranking out post-mortems and coming to the same tired, shop-worn, and incorrect conclusion that got them shellacked at the polls, namely: “Everybody but us is scum.

    Sure thing, Sweetheart… you keep telling yourself that… I’m sure that message is going to win you a lot of converts.

    I read the entire piece, but I keyed in on a couple of parts, starting with the title: “Trump Is Proof: Feminism Isn’t Free”

    That’s an obvious take-off on “Freedom isn’t free,” and is in extremely poor taste – especially around Veteran’s Day (originally Armistice Day) when we commemorate the men (yeah… I said it) who did what had to be done while the women stayed safe at home. But maybe that’s part of their problem: for all their talk about “fighting for” this, that, and the other, women have never had to fight for anything. If we pick the signing of the Magna Carta as the start of the long march toward representative government which a reluctant King John signed more-or-less at sword-point, men – and only men – fought for the right to vote for eight centuries (while accepting the responsibility to back up their political decisions in war). Meanwhile, women got it a few years after men did simply by asking for it – no fighting or responsibilities required. Likewise with their caterwauling about so-called “misogyny” in a society where women make up 60% of college students and receive the vast majority of tax-payer funded benefits while being net tax consumers themselves… and then factor in the death-on-the-job gap, the alimony-gap, the homeless-gap, the longevity-gap, the conscription-gap, the tax-gap, and the custody-gap. How freaking spoiled does one have to be to think that first-world women are put-upon?

    But these sneauflaykes have spent their entire lives in a veritable tornado of positive reinforcement, to the point that they conflate “demanding” with “fighting for,” and “privilege” with “oppression.”

    I have not thought of this, but it seems exactly correct. The Right has greased the squeaking (usually screaming) wheel to buy itself some peace and quiet while waiting for the return of good times. This has been a recipe for disaster. In the wake of the Trump setback, the screaming will now go nuclear. Outrageous concessions will have to be made to grease that back to quiet. Maybe the screaming will be loud enough to wake up the dreamers. But it hasn’t been yet.

  34. IT Lady says:

    The clothing website is ugly, unattractive, low quality at awful prices. Anyone wanting to buy a similar look could go to a mall, get about the same thing less expensive, try it on, take it home right away and not pay shipping.

    If the outfit once home found it was missing a button or something came undone in the first few wearings (it happens), just about every mall store and many websites would replace or refund. Usually (not always but most of time) even if bought on sale or clearance. Not this company–since it’s been worn, the customer is stuck. That’s really terrible service.

    Even the clothes that would be more modest, such as maxi dresses (what I mostly wear), have ultra plunging necklines, high slits, cut outs in odd places, just really strange. I’m someone that would prefer to buy from a small business, even if a little more, but doesn’t seem like there is care for customers or employees either.

    To add to Dalrock’s link in the article, here is a more detailed account from the Fashion Law website:

    This comment by one of the plantiffs stood out:
    … [Nasty Girl] has been described in another recent lawsuit as a terrible place for professional women to work, …

    That is quite ironic considering that Amoruso is a feminist and by presumed extension an aider and abetter of women’s prerogatives. If feminists are persecuting their sisters what is its true aim? That is not a rhetorical question. I do however agree with Pastor Todd Wilken that feminism is sexual anarchy.

    Progtards are all verbal flatulence and no substance when it comes to this issue. For all of their spew about social and economic justice, put one of these animals in charge of a business and they’ll be even more exploitative than the capitalists their hypocriticsl mouths decry.

    Case in point: Jeff “Bozo” Bezos, whose company, Amazon, has, for several years running, been rated one of the worst, most abusive in the developed world to work for.
