Okay, but if VR porn is becoming mainstream, then surely there must be some room for products designed by women for women?

That’s…..rather besides the point.

Let’s cut to the chase. You make sex toys. They may be innovative and wonderful and cool and have computer interfaces and wifi maybe even their own cell phone number or IP address, (imagine the possibilities) but at the end of the day, they’re sex toys.

You’ve tried to connect the dots between a VR Porn exhibitor and you, in order to say without saying “Hey, if THEY’RE there, I should be there too.” But you don’t try to draw that line very convincingly, because (I suspect) you know those dots don’t connect very well; better to throw a bunch of shit up on the wall that nebulously implies your sex was involved in the decision, and feed red meat to the tech SJW’s who will obligingly take up your cause (electronically, of course).

Bottom line? Virtual Reality is a huge and up and coming “consumer electronics” business, and if “Naughty America” is on the cutting edge of VR technology, then they belong at CES; I really don’t care (and I suspect, neither does CES) if their CEO is named Jack or Julie.

In the same vein, I suspect (having some knowledge of CES) that “they” looked at your application, said “those are sex toys, they belong at the AVN Expo, not here” and rejected you…..without even noticing if your name was Liz or Larry.

(Just out of curiosity, did you exhibit at AVN?)

As a woman in tech, I am all for rooting out bias where it exists. However, I am also a fan of Occam’s Razor, and if there’s a simpler explanation as to why you didn’t make the cut other than sex bias, I’ll choose that explanation until hard evidence to the contrary is offered.
