FOF friend D and I were discussing a mutual male acquaintance who has a vile reputation with strong, smart women. They threaten him.
This man has a big job with a big company, but he isn’t especially talented and he prefers to surround himself at work with really vulnerable women. They’re so grateful he’s given them a job, they practically quake in his presence.
This man often makes sexual comments to women and acts like Mr. Macho, although he’s anything but macho. “He stood in my way when we worked together,” said D, a uber succcessful woman. “He’s disgusting.”
God knows why, but I used to defend him until he showed his true colors to me, too. Fortunately, men like this are dwindling away and we are seeing more women in positions of authority and influence.
Strong FOF women have paved the way for our daughters and showed our sons we can be the boss.
