Woman’s Harassment Lawsuit Claims Yahoo Executive Is Lesbian Predator

Posted on | July 29, 2014 | 36 Comments

If women never lie about rape, as feminists have been lecturing us for decades, who are we supposed to believe when a woman claims that her lesbian boss subjected her to sexual harassment?

A high-ranking executive at Yahoo is being sued by an ex-employee on charges of sexual harassment . . .
The high-ranking executive being accused, Maria Zhang, plays a key role in Yahoo’s mobile content development efforts.
The complainant, Nan Shi, was working as a software designer at Yahoo, and says she was repeatedly coerced by Zhang into having “oral and digital sex.” Shi says she was terminated after she later refused Zhang’s advances.
Shi filed her sexual harassment lawsuit [July 11], naming Yahoo as a defendant and charging Zhang with sexual-harassment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and wrongful termination. . . .
Shi moved into Yahoo temporary housing (under orders from Zhang, she says), and Zhang soon moved in with her, the attorney said. It was then that the alleged harassment took place.
“While staying with Plaintiff, Zhang coerced Plaintiff to have oral and digital sex with her on multiple occasions against her will, even after Plaintiff told her she did not want to have sex,” the complaint alleges.
“Zhang told Plaintiff she would have a bright future at Yahoo if she had sex with her. She also stated she could take away everything from her including her job, stocks, and future if she did not do what she wanted.”
Speaking to the [San Jose] Mercury News . . . Shi said:
“I was in a deep sleep one morning, sleeping on the sofa because she had taken my bed, when she came in without clothes on, crawled into my blanket, and woke me up, hugging me, kissing my face and neck,” Shi said. “I woke up and got scared; I was shocked. I said, what are you doing? She said she’d liked me a long time, but I didn’t feel the same toward her. I said come on, we’re friends; I love you as a person, but not as a lover.”

In response, Zhang has not merely denied Shi’s accusation, but has filed a countersuit against her accuser:

Zhang says Shi fabricated the whole story.
According to Zhang, Shi had been an underperformer and received negative performance evaluations from two other managers.
Zhang claims that Shi went to HR to complain about her and other managers when it became clear that Shi’s job was in danger. But Zhang said that HR found Shi’s claims to be unsubstantiated.
Yahoo planned to fire Shi, Zhang claims. But as a last-ditch effort to save her job, Shi again went to HR [i.e., Yahoo’s human resources department], alleging Zhang forced her to have sex in return for favorable treatment. But Shi was “unable to provide a single piece of evidence” in support of her claim. Zhang says HR found that none of her correspondence with Shi indicated any sexual relationship.
Yahoo terminated Shi on July 11, after the investigation was closed.
Because Yahoo held up her termination for several months while investigating her sexual harassment claim, Zhang says Shi received “hundreds of thousands of dollars” in stock and salary that she otherwise would not have taken home.

Translation: “That ugly bitch is a lazy, money-grubbing liar.”

Now, I’m not a lawyer and I am certainly not in a position to judge the truth of the claims involved here. However, it seems to me that Zhang’s account of events — if it had been offered by any male defendant in a sexual harassment case — would be denounced by feminists as “blaming the victim” because, of course, women never lie about rape. Also, while denying any sexual involvement with Shi, Zhang apparently does not deny that she is gay.

Maybe Zhang should accuse Shi of being a homophobe who is trying to destroy her for being a lesbian. Zhang could be an LGBT hero, courageously fighting for her rights, yadda yadda yadda.

Maggie Quale of Huffington Post writes:

Occurrences of same-sex harassment are rare, even less than the rate of men reporting sexual harassment cases against women. However that number is on the rise. The EEOC says claims have doubled in the last five years. But you likely haven’t heard about them. . . .
One thing is crystal clear: same-sex abuse isn’t taken seriously. Despite how far the U.S. is moving forward with recognizing equality in same-sex relationships, parenting and employment rights, the notion of two people of the same sex harassing or abusing one another is considered a joke.
In fact, you’ll notice that nowhere in any of the reports has the term “rape” been used. Not once. Now imagine if a male boss had forced his female employee to have sex or risk losing her job — would that be rape?

Not only is the word “rape” never used by the media in cases like these, the words “lesbian” or “gay” are never used. Why?

In slightly related news, Cosmopolitian magazine is now offering readers gay sex advice. Cosmo goes lesbo? Yeah, that was predictable.

    Do stories like this give feminists headaches? Or do they just conveniently pretend they don’t exist or just blame the patriarchy for the paradox?

    I just got paid $7500 working off my computer this month. And if you think that’s cool, my friend has twin toddlers and made over $8k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do…………..

    Noticing they exist is complicity with the patriarchy, along the same lines as noticing that “rations were increased from 2 grams to 1.5 grams” is nonsense.

    Probably both. The former because Feminism and its endgame Lesbianism are sold as being more moral than the rest of us [fill in blank with whatever disparaging adjective is currently de rigueur for us regular folks] schlubs can appreciate, false consciousness being what it is, after all. The latter because the former is too horrible to contemplate, given that facts inconsistent with philosophy are to be avoided at all costs.

    I’d have thought lesbian would trump straight woman, in the same way that women trump men. I don’t know exactly where gays enter into it. I know there’s a big fight right now about whether transgender male will trump lesbian, or vice versa. Personally I think transgender male will win, because they are actually crazier, although not by much.

    This story is obviously a fake story. Women never lie about rape or sexual harassment. never. Never, ever.

    Maybe. Maybe they both are. Maybe Zhang is the one telling the truth and neither of them are. These days you’re not allowed to even deny being gay without being called a hater. (“Not that there’s anything wrong with that,” is soooo ’90s.)

    If women never lie about these things, then they must both be telling the truth, right?

    Discovery will tell if Miss Zhang has had other homosexual encounters. If she has had none, the benefit of the doubt goes to her; if she has, then most people will believe her former subordinate.

    Maybe, if it turns out that one of them is actually a castrated male with an open wound pretending to be a vagina and fake tits glued to his chest, the patriarchy can be blamed!

    No. Depositions taken antecedent to a posited trial as well as reams of information subpoena’ed from the opposing side.

    You’re looking at them with spectacles the lesbian population does not use.

    Looking at the two, it is difficult to believe that Maria Zhang is a dyke in a straightforward way. The other gal, not so much.

    Just from looking at them, I would’ve guessed the one on the right was the accused, and the one on the left the one suing …

    There is something very curious happening in the feminist movement. It seems to be splitting in two.

    I got the whiff of something about seven, eight months ago. Now it looks like some other people have noticed too. Even Limbaugh noticed today, and he cited the article I linked.

    I think it’s worth a harder look.
