clinical and sounds like someone a) confused by/about women and b) might not know what to do with a woman if he got one . There's a reason Maya Angelou didn't call it Phenomenal Female.

in addition to distracting the public from financial issues, more importantly, it serves as a figleaf to the Street/actual investors to suggest that his crap work at CEO is due to his "work ethic" and that to the extent investors are concerned, they're cleaning house. They it's definitely want to shore up the notion Read more

Wait / you're a nude model and dancer - that wouldn't include spanking. So I assume your reference to that is to your personal life. If you're not with people you know/trust and into any level of BDSM, I'd really suggest you insist on the basic BDSM rules, which rely heavily on absolute boundaries, respect and clear Read more

and in addition to my other thoughts about heels, at least you guys aren't sucked into wearing shape wear and hose to keep things looking professional. And women's suits (and shoes) rarely last the time that men's suits do (unless you go quite high-end - worth it long-term, hard to assess at the buying-point. And Read more

Flats are not acceptable for certain-level jobs. And low heels/flats are unbecoming on certain of us. :-/ I regularly slough off the skin on theo balls of my feet created from blisters and calluses that never toughen as a rsult of heels.

those heels aren't even high! That's what I wear when I have to hood it a half mile to a meeting in another of my company's buildings. Talk to me at 3.5"+.

Of course, if they agree to do so. People can pretty much agree to whatever they want in this type of situation - settlements have wide boundaries.

I'd say #1, but my guess is his lawyer doesn't think it's publicly humiliating at all.

I hear you, and as I mostly post on Gawker, what you probably received was my reaction to the constant refrain of how much money is the only thing that matters, when it comes to being asked to get off your metaphorical ass and perform a task. Sorry!

Agree, and that's how I do in my personal life and interactions. People could perhaps learn a bit about tact, at a minimum.

True; however, the "what are you" a girlfriend of mine got not once, but twice, when we were out for happy hour did flabbergast me. She said it wasn't uncommon (she has one white parent and one black parent). And actually, in one of the times, we were also standing with an Asian woman and a guy of Indian origin, and Read more

right. And if you're in a place where a good portion of the people were born and raised there, you can ask which school they went to, or did you go to school around here. My city is like that - and, to the current topic, the area is one of the biggest destinations for Korean adoptees in the US, so chances are, Read more

Those kinds of comments usually against a company's code of ethics or at least an HR policy. You should have the ability to report it anonymously, and can refer to individuals or a group culture.

But people do this all the time. Your accent sounds different from the prevailing one, and people say, " you're not from here, are you?" Or you have a common last name that, depending on country of origination, gets spelled one way or another, and people ask whether your this or that ethnicity, not just which letter Read more

I have some Spanish Colonial religious icons (probably Mary for one and angels or saints in the others). They are beautiful, and a memory of Peru, where I bought them. I like the fact that these were intended as religious, and I love the look and the personal provenance. I very much dislike the Catholic Church, Read more
