Archie Comics Bigshot -- Accused of '[sexual]' Taunting

Archie Comics Publications has filed legal papers against co-CEO Nancy Silberkleit -- claiming she has a history of bullying and sexually harassing employees ...

According to the lawsuit, filed yesterday in NY, several employees have lodged complaints about Nancy's "offensive" behavior ... including one time in 2009, when she barged into a meeting and "pointed to each [attendee] and said, '[clinically descriptive term for the male reproductive organ]' and then walked out."

Nancy allegedly pulled the same "[clinically descriptive term for the male reproductive organ]" stunt again in 2010 -- but this time she also screamed out, "My [slang for testicles] hurt."

Not surprisingly it appears that this woman is the person largely responsible for the recent attempts to "modernize" Archie by adding gay characters and whatnot to a kids' comic.

Is she the one who gave Reggie herpes and insinuated that Jughead was “doing” Moose?

For a minute there I thought Moose was getting sued.

I was confused about why the company would need to go to court, in case others are confused here is the final part of the short piece “Now, Archie wants a judge to grant an injunction — barring Nancy from returning to the office ... and preventing her from representing the company at the upcoming Comic-Con in San Diego.”

I guess since she is the CEO they can’t just fire her? The board has to do that?

She sounds a little nuts. If this behaviour is sudden and unprecedented maybe they better try and get her some help.

“Archie Comics Publications has filed legal papers against co-CEO Nancy Silberkleit — claiming she has a history of bullying and sexually harassing employees ...”

And no man at Archie Comics Publications had the testicular fortitude to stand up to this hell on wheels and teach her a bit of respect.

Like a FReeper who recently posted on a different, but related topic, he quoted his grandmother who said something to the effect that “Men can be bad, but when women go bad they are just evil.”

As that famous saying goes, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”

And the men at that company did nothing until now...as a group.

A simple search on the “Archie-Veronica” search engine would have found all the earlier stories on this. :-)

When I was a kid I had a few Archie digest’s, they weren’t too bad. I’m just surprised seeing them at the grocery store, that anyone these days would still read it.

I work for a silly little woman whose main claims to competence are frenetic attention to niggling details and her inability to stop swearing. The swearing seems to be considered cute toughness or tough cutness by most of the fat old bald guys in charge.

If I were one of her employees and she called me that, I’d stand and take a bow.

Well, there are also rules about changing the text (editing) of articles.

I’d imagine there can be few things as satisfying as turning the “hostile workplace” laws against a foul-mouth female bully like this one. She shouldn’t get a pass on this kind of behavior just because she’s a woman, although I’d bet money that she figured she was exempt from the consequences.

Silberkleit

Silber is silver. I wonder what "kleit" is? A clinical term for what organ?

I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure that applies to changing the meaning or making changes without indicating that said changes were made. Otherwise, we couldn't excerpt, which is, as you know, required for many sources here.

In my case, I used the type of brackets ("[") that are recognized (in both journalism and other forms of general usage) to denote where something has been edited/substituted.

I work with women who think the laws only apply one way, in terms of language, physical contact, etc; it is pathetic.

“I work with women who think the laws only apply one way, in terms of language, physical contact, etc; it is pathetic.”

In my workplace, they commonly make jokes about men having their gear cut off. They snicker and think they are quite clever.

They can be very unprofessional; sometimes it just seems they are “playing office”, with no clue. I have a professional persona for work, and the “real me” for everything else; they often blur the two (crying at work, raising their voices and such). Some professional women are very sharp; others behave in ways that would never be tolerated in male employees.

“kleid” is dress — I think it means “silver dress” (although in her case it should be something else)

As far as I can tell, "kleit" is probably an archaic spelling of Kleid: dress or garment.

I have read that many of the family names involving gold-, silber-, fein-, or -stein stem from a list of names that Jewish families in Germany were forced to purchase during the middle ages; a sort of punitive tax. The richer-sounding names, e.g., Goldstein or Feingold, cost more.

Hostile workplace laws sound like BS to me. Just like hate crime legislation.

I agree 100%. But I find it to be amusing irony when it is successfully turned against someone like this.

I've known guys who have had their careers destroyed for a lot less than this, stupid stuff that got blown way out of proportion in a virtual Star Chamber persecution at the hands of the feminist mafia that run Human Resources Departments in all our companies.

This woman exec obviously thought that her sex would exempt her from consequences for her boorish behavior. I love seeing this kind of arrogance getting smacked down, and using the "hostile workplace" card against her just makes the irony so much sweeter.
