Just talk about how heavy your flow is and how many tampons you go through. Men tap out real quick.

Ask them a question about what they just said (in a serious, inquisitive tone, not a sarcastic one) that forces them to think a little deeper. If a guys says that they’re being passed over for a promotion because someone else is a woman and they want more women leaders, ask them what specific qualities make them (the guy) more deserving than her. Try to make them realize it’s just an excuse they’re using as an explanation for their own shortcomings. It’s a lot easier to say “I’m not getting the promotion cause I’m a guy” than actually think about why you didn’t. The best way to make people realize they are thinking narrow-mindedly isn’t to tell them they’re an idiot, it is to make them think about why they believe what they believe.

Ex 1: men feel the pressure to look a certain way too.
Ex 2: domestic abuse affects men as well.
Ex 3: men are prejudiced against in the corporate world because higher ups want diversity so they skip over promotion for me.

How do you say something smart, short, and to the point about how self-absorbed and honestly, ill-informed they are?

Yes, these problems affect men as well, but these issues are not systematically working against men the way they are working against women...

I need your all’s advice. I lead a two person CorpDev and strategy team at a PE backed company. Current TC is $216K + options that could be worth $300-600K+ in a few years. Receiving potential offers of TC for $250K-275K but without options. I live in a low cost city, like the company / industry and team, and have great WLB, autonomy and flexibility. I’ve also only been in this role for 5 months (we’re not an acquisitive company; I was brought on to build the M&A function). Continued below…
