Anonymous wrote in because she lost the big promotion she deserved to the office sexual predator … all because she has a vagina.
“I am fuming at the moment. A bit of backstory, but I’m going to stay general for privacy: I’ve been working for ages for a promotion to a senior role at my company, and my boss just gave the job to a colleague who has been working here for about one minute. I work in finance, so it’s very much a boy’s club, and our boss is a bro, but I deluded myself into thinking that my job performance and bottom line would trump my fucking vagina. I don’t know what to do. I’ve been working my ass off day and night, and to make it even worse, the guy who got the job is an absolute pig. He constantly brags and lies about “taking down” women in the office, and I’m feeling quite dejected. I’ve been tolerating the ass grabs, the late nights, the come ons, the laughing along with jokes about my period … and giving the job to this guy makes the rejection so much worse. I’m trying to be objective, and I honestly know I deserve this job. I work the hardest, I have the best record as compared to the other candidates, and I’ve spoken up about my seriousness regarding the position. Hell, my boss even commented in my last review that I was on track for a senior role. Is getting looked over just my fate unless I grow a dick? What should I do?” – Anonymous
@CrazyJewishMom: You dick slap them in the face with the law.
@KateFriedmanSiegel: Ughhh. I’m sorry. This is so incredibly frustrating and relatable; it makes me want to scream and shatter fragile objects.
@CrazyJewishMom: Seriously, what you do is … you don’t accept this.
@KateFriedmanSiegel: Yeah, have you discussed this with your boss?
@CrazyJewishMom: Fuck the boss! Time’s up, Bros! Newsflash: SEXUAL HARASSMENT AND DISCRIMINATION ARE ILLEGAL.
@KateFriedmanSiegel: As they should be. And it’s unacceptable that so many companies still have this boys club culture that you’re describing.
@CrazyJewishMom: Stop feeling hopeless and get angry. I want you to stand up right now, get a lawyer, and go with the lawyer to HR with a documented list of the ass grabbing, come ons, jokes about your period, and every example you can think of involving this pig of a human being sexually offensive at the office. Sue the motherfuckers.
@KateFriedmanSiegel: It’s just an awful position to be in, because if you do that it will be really tough to continue working at the company.
@CrazyJewishMom: And why the hell would she want to continue working at that sexual harassment cesspool? Call Gloria Allred. I’m serious. She takes cases all over the country and has a full staff of lawyers. You must find a top notch labor discrimination sexual harassment law firm. There are lots out there, but seriously, I would call Gloria Allred first. She doesn’t just handle high profile cases. She helps lots of ordinary women who are not celebrities as well. I know this personally, because she helped a friend of mine and won her a huge settlement. And the lawyers will work with you, often without paying upfront if they think you have a good case.
@KateFriedmanSiegel: I totally agree with my mom, and I think it’s so important to end the cycle of women just shutting up and tolerating unacceptable behavior and discrimination in the workplace. However, I want to be clear: don’t kid yourself, this will be painful, messy, and it may cost you your job, so proceed with caution and take time to consider all your options, That said, based on what you’ve described, I think it’s worth having a conversation with a lawyer at the very least.
@CrazyJewishMom: Time’s Up, Bros.
