I agree. I heard recently that one of my most hated deli manager, who’d been promoted to assistant store manager a few months before I left, was demoted. All the way down to regular full-time. No management position.

Even Playboy wants men to stop screaming at women on the street. When the pinnacle of female objectification is telling you you’re being a sexist pig, maybe for real you’re being a sexist pig. (I mean, women have been telling you you’re a sexist pig for catcalling for a long time, but then again, they’re *women* so their opinions don’t count. Now a magazine for men has acknowledged it so LISTEN UP.)
