Humans, Still Animals
The first sentence of the first paragraph from the front page of the Sunday New York Times:
Men and women still don’t seem to have figured out how to work or socialize together.
Hey! We’re humans. Animals pretending to be professionals. We fancy ourselves logical beings not affected by our hormones and emotions.
The front page story continues:
For many, according to a new Morning Consult poll conducted for The New York Times, it is better simply to avoid each other.
Many men and women are wary of a range of one-on-one situations, the poll found. Around a quarter think private work meetings with colleagues of the opposite sex are inappropriate. Nearly two-thirds say people should take extra caution around members of the opposite sex at work. A majority of women, and nearly half of men, say it’s unacceptable to have dinner or drinks alone with someone of the opposite sex other than their spouse.
The Times also published a story a few days ago on women in tech on the culture of harassment in the Silicon Valley tech world.
I currently work in Sunnyvale, but I lived and worked in Manhattan for 10 years, so the bro culture out here on the west coast is still kind of new to me.
Are guys in Silicon Valley not masturbating enough? What the fuck is wrong guys out here?
