‘A WHAT? A FEMALE?!?’

Turn up your hearing aids for this one.

I once worked with a 50+ male ‘writer’ (self published) who scoffed at the idea of working for a female editor, 20 years his junior. ‘A female editor?’ he decried, ‘Well that’s just the most hilarious thing I’ve ever heard!’ he said, to a room full of two women and two men.

He was fired within the week by the new female editor.

I just like telling that story.

  1. My jaw dropped at this.

    ….I’m glad he was fired. Open opposition to misogynistic behaviors is a great way to force people to rethink their positions.
