1) I was painting a picture that is common where female founders interpret casual encounter with investors in a social settings as business and then call them out for being a creep.

2) I’m saying that how women act as a whole sends a message to men as to what is permissible so if we want to change things in the ecosystem we need to be responsible for our own behavior

3) what one woman considers abuse may be different for another woman based on what she has experienced previously

4) Blame is not the answer

Does that clear things up? Additionally if you don’t work in Silicon Valley the nuances of this issue may be lost on you.
