Why I'm Leaving Pinkbike
Wow! Thank you for that. If Karl wants to share the contents of my emails and interactions with the audience (including the one I've sent him) I would be fine with that. What Karl also didn't mention is the number of phone calls I've had with Tyler and Julian, and the emails that suggest such phone calls should take place, rather than discussing it over email. Feel free to call me whatever you'd like. That's your (and JenniferPanda's) right. But being stonewalled happened, regardless of how PB would like to spin it. I have hour-long phone records I could post, but unfortunately, you cannot screenshot a phone call. I'm sorry you feel that I've personally wronged you by sharing my experience, but I wish you nothing but the best of luck.

Why I'm Leaving Pinkbike
Do not, for one moment, assume that I am not sad or heartbroken about walking away from this community. There is so much to be done and yes, I wish that I had never clicked on that review or made those comments last summer. Believe me. Because right now, looking down the very long tunnel of bullshit that PB has perpetuated within their working culture, I know that my career will be the one to take the hit. I'm not angry about being 'fired' because I never was. Clearly, you don't understand the meaning of that word, either. I wish my publisher and my friends here at Pinkbike nothing but the best, but I will not stand by and allow the spread of outright lies (the Muddbunnies page is a video from a contest 3 years ago summing up 'doing it best', so thanks for taking that out of context in an obvious attempt to smear me) from someone who has zero history or links on 'her' page. But hey. Nice try. Obviously, some site users agree with you. Bravo.

Jennifer, I find it hilarious and ironic that not only are you unfamiliar with my writing or my history on the website over the last year, but that you are guilty of the same conjecture and ignorance that you so crudely accuse me of. I wasn't 'kicked off' of anywhere. As of January, I cashed a check PB wrote me for an article I wrote them. This blog post is about me leaving due to the sexist double standard and the, yes, rape culture that pervades the echelon's of Pinkbike's staff. To accuse someone else of hiding behind words and terms when you yourself claim to be a 'feminist'? Yet you have no history on this site and clearly have no idea of what a pervasive rape culture really is. Pervasive rape culture is where people are silenced for speaking out, punished for expecting fairness and hidden in a political process that would most likely see them give up before getting answers... And yes, that is what has happened here, as the publisher of this site admitted yesterday in a lengthy (and tearful) phone call with yours truly.

A site where a man can write whatever he chooses but a woman will lose a column for speaking out is not one I want to be part of. Thank you all for your extremely kind words and I truly hope to see you at the races or at least interact with you in other forums online. You can always find me on my website, and my blog will be where my new pieces are posted. Cheers and best of luck.

Interview: Brian Cookson, UCI President
WAKI, we both know I've already answered those questions you have; now you're just trolling intentionally and, again, lack the reading comprehension to have proper discourse, so I'm walking away. Thanks for the fun while I'm laid up, fellas. ;)
