Lots of people have asked me about the news coverage of the woman who had a job offer as an assistant professor at a small college pulled after she tried to negotiate. It’s been painted as everything from an outrageous action on the part of the college to evidence that women are penalized for negotiating. My stance is that this particular case is neither — the issue here is that the way she asked, and what she asked for, was tone-deaf and signaled that she was difficult and wildly unaligned with how the college operates. . . .
