Remember when Lululemon founder Chip Wilson was telling us ladies that “some women’s bodies just don’t actually work” for his yoga pants, “it’s about the rubbing through the thighs and how much pressure is there”? In other words, the sheer yoga pants were your fat thighs’ fault, not Master Lululemon’s fault.
They eventually recalled 17% of their yoga pants for sheerness, but not before ordering customers to “bend over” to ensure their yoga pants were actually sheer before giving a refund.
Well, he had to step down as chairman Monday because you all wouldn’t shut up. (Love you.) Michael Casey will serve as the new Chairman of the Board.
If you’ve been awake for the last 3 years, then you would have expected such women hating stuff from the guy who posted an ode to John Galt on the Lululemon corporate blog that has since been removed (go figure!) but captured for posterity by Gawker (oops).
Yes, it’s true, Chip was ONE OF THOSE BOYS. He read Atlas Shrugged as a child and never grew out of it. Elevate the world with selfishness! Blame women for not fitting into his oh so special yoga pants! YES, his little Atlas Shrugged world was an orgasmic feast of social Darwinism as he gobbled up the naked employees, the Asians who can’t say “L”, and the women whose bodies wouldn’t comply with his perfection (shut that rape down, girls).
Chip displayed the hallmarks of Libertarianism as practiced by Republicans:
Lululemon is run like a “cult”, including “nearly naked yoga” for the employees.
Chip blames the pill for everything. He explained in yet another now removed blog post, “Women’s lives changed immediately [after the pill]. … Men did not know how to relate to the new female. Thus came the era of divorce…”Breast cancer also came into prominence in the 1990′s. I suggest this was due to the number of cigarette-smoking Power Women who were on the pill (initial concentrations of hormones in the pill were very high) and taking on the stress previously left to men in the working world.”
If only you ladies didn’t have access to the pill. Oh, that’s what Republicans are for. My bad.
Chip thinks that third world child labor is freedom, Mitt Romney style.
Lululemon spied on its customers – privacy is all the rage unless a corporations’ profits are at issue, and then it’s all survival of the fittest. So fungu principles.
I know, you’re thinking Chip can’t possibly be a Libertarian Tea Party type because he’s not a racist. Hating women is only half the battle. True, but Chip said he created the name “Lululemon” because he thinks Japanese people can’t say the letter “L”. (Another removed blog entry y’all! Captured by Business Insider.)
With Libertarianism comes an affinity for blaming women for the hatred Libertarians impose upon them, disguised as freedom for the oppressed sociopathic white male. Leave Special Whitey alone, all you ladies who lack the thigh gap necessary for doing Chip’s porn version of Yoga.
Yoga is defined as “A Hindu discipline aimed at training the consciousness for a state of perfect spiritual insight and tranquility.” Nope, nada about a thigh gap, which is shocking since when I think spiritual insight, I go right to shallow exteriors and survival of the fittest motifs.
Hey dysfunctional Chip, your limited imagination fantasies are all cool but don’t try to blame women for being human beings just because you live in an adolescent world, wherein all women have the figure of a Barbie Doll and never call you out on your lameness.
But who’s bending over now, Chip? Bye bye.
