Respect is earned. Sex is irrelevant. It's not like you went on a date and told people you slept with her. You were engaged in an argument in which you were equals. It sounds like she disrespected you.
You can take so many times, but that is the point of being in a professional work environment. You act professional unless your life is in absolute danger. You don't stoop down to their level, otherwise you're going to look just as bad as them. Fighting fire with fire is ridiculous. You took the bait and as a result, now you look just as bad as she does.
That's unbelievable, they're both incredibly moronic. One might normally pity the oversensitive one, but when a dipshit cries for no reason then tries to blame it on you all sympathy probably goes out the window.
Seeing as most people scream equal rights left, right and center now it was only fair. You had all the right to do that. The whole "You can't do x because I'm y" argument is a bit stale after you hear the same person campaigning about equality.
A man should never argue with a woman, unless he is willing to get permanent hairloss at an early age or the near future. LoL In reality, you did the right thing, you got your point across, the boss knew it, and you still have your job.
Some of us females are getting dumber each day. Hopefully I don't become like any of those b****es when I grow up. I believe in equal gender rights. And I hate it when people are being sexist. We are all people, and that is that.
Good job standing up for yourself. And hey, you can beat them up in your head, okay?
That kind of thing just makes me angry You were not acting in that manner towards her based purely on her sex, so you weren't being disrespectful towards a woman. You behaved in that manner due to provokation from another person, which is not ok no matter who it comes from. That's what people need to realise. To be completely free of sexism, you must not distinguish between genders and act accordingly. Ultimately it boils down to that person is a bastard.
I agree. Sometimes you can only be human and that includes acting rashly or blowing up.
You could always apologize for blowing up. Not the funnest idea but if you are upset about it, it may make you feel better. Or you could move on. Personally, you both threw some low blows and were both wrong. Ultimately though I think both women were pretty out of bounds. The first one for starting it all and the second by being shocked at you blowing up at someone because of their gender.
Respect is a two way street. Yes, men should treat women with respect but that doesn't mean that women get to do as they please.
Well, well, the first one that insults is the one that loses the argument. No matter what. When somebody needs to start insulting is because is not sure of his/her arguments and needs to reinforce her position.
I am a woman and wonder why so many women feel the need to start with the insults and namecalling, then complain when the shit somes back to them. They make all of us look like hysterical freaks.
Go to work dressed as a woman and tell her you are going through a sex change process and now you are a woman, so you can kick her in the crotch with no shame.
Seriously. A friends coworker called him a nasty pig when he opened the door to her and let her go first. She thought he was looking her ass or somerhing. He did not reply, he did not want to clash with her and make a drama... jesus...
