That’s an $18 million/year big deal
If we’re all equal before the law if men and women are to be treated with justice in the workplace, what about Tucker?
Like all men, he was called a prick by his subordinates. No big deal! So why dump him for calling Suzanne Scott, his female boss, a “C….”
If “male prick” is the vernacular we use when angry about a man, what made the “C word” unmentionable for Tuck?
ARE WE BACK IN THE EISENHOWER ERA?
For 1950’s guys, women were on pedestals and needed protection from male crudity.
Are there no contemporary English speakers who hear words that make them feel “icky”?
One gets the impression that all words are now always OK. It seemed that modern society could refer to Suzanne as Tucker did and feel it’s acceptable?
I’m glad she gave him the boot.
The boot indeed! And sorely needed,
So true about words and their radioactivity. In English the Sh word is still radioactive, but it’s French translation, “Merde”, seemed to have lost it’s potency even 40 years ago……it became just part of the modern French means of expression.
