Golden Schlafly Award To Mother Pence

Still, she persisted.


“I now think twice about spending one-on-one time with a young female colleague.” This quote from an unnamed finance executive attending the World Economic Forum in Davos appeared in a New York Times story Sunday about male leaders’ increasing fear, post #MeToo, about interacting with women in the workplace and how this fear has come out in conversations in Davos.

So the plutocrats are taking Mother Pence’s advice and are now avoiding The Skirts they work with?

Look, gents, it’s pretty simple: don’t behave like Les Moonves, Harvey Weinstein and others whose careers have perished because they could not control their urges.

Here’s some advice. Do Not:

  • ask anyone who works for you to get their freak on with you.
  • come out of a bathroom with your robe undone and Mr. Happy showing.
  • hire someone to be on call for BJs.
  • bop the bishop in front of anyone you are working with.
  • stick your tongue in your coworkers mouths.

But if you cannot promise to avoid doing these things, the problem is not having women colleagues, the problem is you. And if you cannot promise to do these things, sweet Jeebus, you should NOT BE MENTORING ANYONE!

    That fear that a lot of men have, of being “hit on” by a gay man, is very similar to how a lot of women feel when confronted by men, sometimes in normal everyday situations.
    And a final word from me on the subject:
    Men – don’t say anything to a woman that you wouldn’t want to hear said to you in prison.

      The fear that straight men have is unreasonable. I’m gay, I’ve never not recognized someone who said ‘no’. (damn that’s convoluted) The fear we have is that if we make a pass at the wrong man, he’ll kill us. Maybe that’s something the straight men should fear from their female co-workers. Might make them think about life a bit more reasonably.

        Welcome to MPS, Karl, and thank you for your comment. We agree with you.

        We’ve noted again and again that transpeople have more to fear from cisgen people than vice-versa, and trying to claim that they are only trans so they can molest people in the bathroom of their choice is the lowest canard.

    Well, now I have to spend half the day weeping for the poor Davos attendee that suffers so greatly. He has to think twice, people! TWICE!!

    Maybe his mansion and private jet and his poverty-creating lifestyle will see him through these dark times. Yes… think of all the children that will starve because of your obscene wealth… yes, dry your tears, little one.

    i can’t believe that Pence hasn’t been asked by a media interviewer yet whether he avoids women who are not his mother, woops, I mean his wife, because he doesn’t trust the women or because he doesn’t trust himself.
    Wait, that’s wrong.
    Of course I can believe it – our media interviewers are fucking useless.

    This post is perfect. Thank you.

      Alison – Thanks. I’m super-pissed at these dudes. Besides doing these things in the list, they are now making themselves out to be the real victims.

    Great post, TG! Having experienced sexual innuendo and harrassment in various situations over the years, it’s frustrating that we still see it every day. It shouldn’t even take a lot of effort TO NOT BE A DICK. I’ve raised three sons and above all, I taught them that people just want to be treated with respect. It’s just not that difficult.

    Obviously, trophy wives have nothing to add to this conversation. Sad.
