My letter to the CEO of Zoosk, Kelly Steckelberg:
I have put up with so much abuse from the men on the Zoosk dating site it is deplorable. One guy I had to block because he was blatantly asking me to go to bed with him AFTER I told him I was not interested. I have also had men get very angry when I tell them I am a progressive liberal and am not interested in dating conservative men and then calling me a liberal $#*! and even worse. I also have had men abruptly cancel dates when I have spent hours researching convenient places to meet and when I tell them their behavior was very rude, they have become very abusive. I have had men contact me just to tell me I am too old for them or they do not like my looks or I am too "active" implying women should not be interested in active sports when I have not even contacted them or even viewed their profile. WOMEN ABSOLUTELY HAVE A LEGAL RIGHT TO TELL THE ABOVE MEN THEIR BEHAVIOR IS VERY ABUSIVE AND INAPPROPRIATE!
Then, suddenly I am no longer receiving emails from Zoosk and can not get on the site. When I call, I am told my account has been blocked AND you absolutely refuse to give me any information on why I have been blocked. I demand not only a full refund from Zoosk but also $10,000 for being subjected to both the abuse of men on your site and abuse from Zoosk.
YOUR SITE IS NOTHING BUT A SITE ENABLING RAPE CULTURE AND VERY SEXIST, EGOTISTICAL, PATRIARCHY MEN! I STRONGLY SUSPECT SOME OF THESE EXTREME MALE CHAUVINISTS PIGS HAVE COMPLAINED ABOUT ME WHEN I SET LIMITS ON THEIR CREEPY BEHAVIOR AND OF COURSE, BEING A SEXIST ORGANIZATION, YOU JUST MINDLESSLY SIDED WITH THE MEN.
I am forwarding this email to media outlets and to the Ultra Violet, a feminist organization.
