- I’m pretty sure my boss has it out for me.
- Like really. She’s treating me beyond poorly, focusing all of her bad energy on me for no apparent reason.
- It really harshes my mellow.
- Also it’s not really appropriate to treat someone differently in the workplace just because you don’t like them.
- Judge me on my work, not your personal opinion of me.
- Kay thanks.
not only that, but also:
- Some of my older managers do not understand that my name is “Liz.”
- It’s not baby, or babe, sweetie, sweetheart, honey, pretty girl, or anything else.
- It’s Liz.
And then there’s the kicker:
- The dress code there is that everyone must wear ties.
- This wouldn’t be a problem if it only was to make sure everyone looked the same, because that’s the point of a uniform.
- But here’s misogyny in action: it’s because someone in corporate thinks menswear is more professional than womenswear.
- (I’m not even joking. It’s in the official printed dress code.)
- Because saying menswear is more professional than womenswear, that it is more indicative of a “business professional” look, they’re effectively saying that the traditional (and very, very wrong) belief that men are more professional than women is correct.
- Also my store director said I didn’t look professional and then told me to buy mens pants and to stop at a “big and tall” store.
- the term is plus size.
- and I can buy clothes at Target, thank you very much.
- So basically, my workplace is a function of the patriarchy.
Misogyny in action, everyone.
