Leigh Alexander, the writer behind the February 1st ” Objectify a Male Tech Writer Day,” has decided to put the kibosh on the event. After receiving comments from readers about her appearance, the special day would have been provided the opportunity for commenters to write about male tech writers’ appearances. After receiving feedback about how the light-hearted day could turn negative, Alexander cancelled the event. “At first I was excited, but now I see the scale of the discussion and coverage is creating a number of valid risks – and as a result, I’d like to call off the event,” Alexander said to New Statesman.
