ANY man in a leadership position in corporate America has a large target on his back.
Been there, done that.
Try being a younger male, 35-45, in a senior management position in a business that is about 80% female. The stuff that the women said and did to each other was simply atrocious. But even worse, the number of times I was hit on by peers, subordinates, and even employees two or three steps lower on the org chart would stun the average person—as it did my wife!
When I was 25 and not making six figures, I couldn’t get one of these women to look at me. at 40, I could have been getting more ass than a bus station bathroom.
BUT, if I ever took a step the slightest bit out of line, I would hear about it from HR. It was one of the reasons I ended up quitting and starting my own business. The political correctness was stifling, one sided, and Supported only women.
I believe Cain did nothing a jury would ever convict him of— but every pansy HR director I ever knew would run to the lawyers to keep it quiet for the good of the company.
