I'm good, thanks.

I understand the gender preference issues, and have no problem with people doing what they want to do. I just had not seen that following a business signature. it just caught my attention. I didn't make any judgments.


I didn't say you did. More than anything, I was surprised you hadn't seen it, especially in your field.

If one is lesbian are different pronouns used?

Are only women doing it? Cause I haven't gotten any new memos lately.

It's saying I identify as female. Some people are gender neutral and prefer they/them/theirs. It does NOT identify if striaght/bi/*****exual. People of any gender do this if they wish.

edit: you can't say *****exual? BF is not woke. Sad!

Bottom line, you don't assume. They/Them is safe until it's not, etc. It is best to ask what the preferred pronoun is, or wait until you hear or see it.

A Reuben and fries was not a healthy lunch choice. And now I need a nap.

It's a support group on the show Ted Lasso. Mostly talking about guy issues. I watch almost no TV but Ted Lasso is TV worth watching.

The group has brief ad-hoc meetings to discuss concerns, usually about relationships and other life issues.

I must have over-exerted myself this morning. I'm sitting on the previous page wondering why I haven't gotten a response yet, not realizing it's the last post of the page. Sad.
:lol:

Well, I was surprised I hadn't even heard of it. I try to keep up on such stuff since part of my work involves counseling employers on discrimination/harassment issues and defending EEOC complaints.

Probably don't see it in use because I generally only correspond with lawyers and my clients' decision makers. And because Texas. People in general are more closed minded and guarded around here.

Speaking of Diamond Dogs-type... stuff... my wife has been having a frustrating time at work, recently, and she'll come downstairs to kvetch about this problem or that. I'm inclined to find ways of dealing with issues, whether they're technical or interpersonal, so I'll make suggestions like, "could you do this?" or "why not try that?"

To which I receive nothing but pushback - I can't do this, don't want to do that, etc, etc. :rolleyes:

I think that I just need to fight my instincts and remember that she's not looking for solutions - she's looking for commiseration. I'll try to just shut my yap other than to say, "that sucks, honey - sorry to hear it. Would you like a glass of wine?"

Correct. Sympathy, not solutions.

Ever see "It's Not About the Nail" video??

Thanks doc, although I canít say I understand the reasoning of the participating individuals, Iíll just chalk it up to DSFDF.

Good luck with all that. I have found myself unable to do it. Though it is the correct response.
