Valleywag skewered the Dating Ring, a startup that connects single women from New York with single men from San Francisco, this morning by comparing its female users to the “comfort women” who were abducted and raped in World War II.

Reappropriate has pointed out the many ways this analogy is inaccurate — not least of which being the fact that the Dating Ring’s users aren’t being subjected to daily rape and torture — and posted an email exchange with Gawker refusing to apologize for the analogy because it was meant to be “satire.” [Source: Reappropriate]
