Given the thread in the consulting bowl about “that’s gay” - what has your experience been with that type of thing in the workplace?

I haven’t heard any anti-gay stuff at work, but definitely have heard anti-trans stuff (mostly from clients, not colleagues).


Yeah, heard dumb stuff from clients, never internally.


My remark I would want to make is “ that’s not so gay. A dick in a mouth is gay "


Not necessarily. A dick in a man's mouth is gay


I haven’t heard anything tbh. I don’t know if people are just trolling in that thread or what.

I once had a senior manager who said in my face that “those transgenders are so confused that they aren’t even clear about their gender”. Yes that stuff is still real at workplace. May not be something as outright as “that’s gay” though.

That’s terrible, I’m sorry.

Where's this thread? Couldn't find it

It’s a post just into the general consulting void, you shouldn’t have to join a specific bowl, I think

Can anybody shine some light on how much senior accountants make in companies like TikTok, Amazon, Disney, etc? Hate it when recruiters ask "what comp are you expecting" and there is no info about these positions on glassdoor. Would appreciate it, thank you!
