Men especially should be aware that we’re generally poor listeners, and lack emotional literacy
On Y Combinator’s Defense of Peter Thiel
Jason Putorti

So basically you’re providing a case, a very gray line, for Y Combinator cutting ties with Thiel because he supports an opposing viewpoint. But then you admit (and in the process typecast a whole gender) that you’re a poor listener. Shouldn’t you be taking initiative to improve your listening skills, by I don’t know, listening to and supporting companies who listen to other points of view?

I’m no Trump supporter, but the fact that we have to prepend every differing opinion by even saying “I’m no Trump supporter”, demonstrates a massive problem with our rampant intolerance.

Like what you read? Give Mike Post a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
