Stupid political crap your friends post on facebook. - Page 338

post #5056 of 5454




This one seems strange to me because in my experience at least it is precisely the same people who make both claims.

I think this counts as "political". Written by an acquaintance/friend of my girlfriend, who apparently has a whole blog devoted to discussing and celebrating her "butch style" (the author, not my girlfriend.) Summary: biological woman who works really hard at making her gender ambiguous has hissy fit when bartender fails to accurately perceive the gender she's feeling more aligned with in the moment.

Given that this bartender seems to have been well-intentioned and innocently mistaken (or was trying to do her the courtesy of addressing her as the gender he perceived her to be presenting) publicly labeling him an "offender" seems like a real dick move.

Some people just want to be offended. No shit, our language makes people pick gendered pronouns or titles. If you fall outside the norms, you're going to face some confusion. Poor special flowers.

Just read this sob story and note all of the insanely poor life decisions this woman made

https://medium.com/life-tips/yelp-fired-a-single-mother-today-me-fe9c87e71be9#.6i0sor710

(1) taking a loan at 300% APR to (2) move across the county (3) with her 3 year old that she is solely responsible for (4) to live in San Francisco (5) in a $2500.00 a month apartment (6) and work a job where she makes $2000.00 a month (7) and then, when she loses the job (most likely for being an unlikable drama magnet who was apparently always missing work), posts her sob story on the internet under her real name, naming and shaming her employer and ensuring that every potential future employer knows what a problem she is determined to be, both before and after she gets canned.

I sure hope the sympathy of a bunch of strangers was worth it Jaymee (I would add a number to that name but that's really her parent's fault)

Without comparison to her colleagues, her sales stats are meaningless.  Maybe she sells $20k/mo but her colleagues sell $50k or $100k.  I can't imagine a company firing a top salesman over needing to shift a schedule or take a few days off.

My guess, from reading her story and from having worked in offices in the past, is that she was constantly complaining, having emergencies, taking up a lot of her manager's time, and generally being exasperating.

I'm just calling bullshit on her story. In my experience, companies will put up with a lot of bullshit from top performers especially in sales.  At companies I have worked for both inside and outside sales could do anything except illegal or unethical activity as long as they were top sales (though almost all the top sales folks create the least amount of headaches).

These people just turn their self obsession into a political statement. It's really grating. These people really spend all of their time thinking about their self created gender identity.

The funny thing is, the bizarre genderweirdo politics of this age being what they are, I still have no clue what this person's biological sex actually is. It could be anything.

Its funny that men are so erotically obsessed with fantasy lesbians when you consider how tedious real life lesbians tend to be.

This is hate speech.
