A woman accused Reddit, the popular online community for sharing and sharing often, of sexism on Friday after she was kicked off the site.
The woman, who said she was an unpaid volunteer at a local nonprofit, said she and two other female volunteers who were also volunteers at the nonprofit were told to leave the site in late October because of “misogynistic comments” on their profile pages.
The comments were not directly related to her gender but were in reference to her sex, she told The Associated Press.
The harassment included accusations that she was “too cute” and “too hot” and that she had a “big, thick cock.”
She said she tried to make the complaints public because she wanted other women to know they weren’t alone and she wanted to set a precedent that women shouldn’t have to worry about being fired because of their gender.
“I feel like I’m at a crossroads,” she said.
“Do I continue to work with Reddit?
Do I leave?”
Reddit is one of the most popular sites on the internet and has gained a reputation for welcoming and welcoming users from all over the world.
The company said in a statement that it was investigating the allegations and would respond to them in due course.
“We take the safety and well-being of our community members extremely seriously, and we have zero tolerance for harassment and discrimination,” the statement said.
It also said it had hired an outside investigation firm to look into the allegations.
A Reddit spokeswoman said the company was aware of the complaint and that it has hired an external investigator.
It is not clear what role Reddit might have played in the investigation.
The spokeswoman said she couldn’t say when the investigation would be complete.
She said the investigation was in the early stages and there was no indication that Reddit had taken any action.
“It’s a lot of work to figure out the full extent of what’s going on,” the spokeswoman said.
She added that “the people at Reddit are very good at keeping their word.”
The woman said that while she was on the site, she was asked to “submit” to other users who were trying to “help her” and be a part of the community.
“They told me that I had to submit to a lot more people,” she told AP.
“That they weren, ‘We’re going to be in charge of this, so please, please submit to as many people as possible.
We want you to be a big part of our family, so we want you, your husband and your wife, to know that you are appreciated.’
She has filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in San Francisco against Reddit and other companies that operate on the social networking site. “
She said that when she left the site the next day, she received a message saying, “You’re being terminated.
“The harassment is not about gender but it is about power.” “
These companies have a huge problem when it comes to dealing with women,” she wrote.
“The harassment is not about gender but it is about power.”
A Reddit spokesperson declined to comment on the complaint.
The website has more than 7 million registered users and is used by more than 2 billion people a month.
