Thank you! I think it’s gone on for so long because it’s such a small comment that carries such massive weight that a lot of people just miss it.
The comment about my boss being such a girl came on the heels of that same HR director moving a client from my portfolio because he thought that they “just might respond better to a man.” Didn’t stand up for me. Just pulled it.
Had those two incidents not happen together, it may have flown right by my radar. Comments like these are that common.
Thank you for understanding my perspective.
