Can you be expected not to act "gay" or "fluid" on the job?
Some different for this blog to start a sleepy August.
Should you be expected to act gender binary in the workplace? Or just neutral?
Speaker Riyadh Khalif talks about this.
His boss (in the TV station business) asked him to tone it down. He says he didn’t.
Social media and the preoccupation with pronouns has had an effect on corporate America.
But of course, gay men in the workplace in the past weren’t noticed for behaving any differently, particularly independent media.
In the past, the paradigm was salesmen going out and meeting customers and having to behave in business-like fashion.
My own father did that for 40 years, although he sold only wholesale.
And, yes, YouTube has a few softcore “comedy” videos of job applicants “giving in” to get jobs.
