Yeshhh. Is it even possible for the CEO of a company to pursue one of his employees in a non-predatory way? Power-dynamic is out of whack there if you ask me

I completely agree! It’s just the standard has been set so low that if a man doesn’t rape you or beat you, and accepts your rejection without consequences, people see it as “non predatory”

Maybe I’m not that good a person but I find it difficult to feel sorry for Melinda. She was well aware of his ongoing relationship with his ex-girlfriend when she married him, and she agreed to his arrangement for annual vacations with his ex. She was in her 30s when she got married, so it would be hard to claim naivety. The marriage must have served her in some way. Also, while their work around the world has done great good, there has been a lot of collateral damage too. E.g., they’ve partnered with/funded organizations that have done illegal/unethical things around drug and contraceptive testing in poor communities in Africa. Women and children have been harmed.

These people are rich and live a totally different existence from most of us.

@mck1: can you share some links for the claims?

What does it look like for the married CEO of your company to pursue you in a “non-predatory” way??

The power dynamic would make it wildly terrifying to say No to man like that!

Sorry that happened SM1 and I hope you are doing better now. And taking time to heal.

OP - also true. I think people are too enamoured with the image of Bill Gates to ever consider him a predator.

From what’s available in public domain at the moment:
- cheater, yes
- cringey, yes
- sexist, maybe

Now if we go on to learn that he was in fact sleeping with underage girls at Epstein’s home, that would be predatory and criminal.

Also thinking Epstein is cool AFTER he was convicted is pretty sick. Good on her she is done. He has different values.

I don’t know - when you have that much money, life looks very different. And it’s also strange that these stories are coming out now. I bet you will find hundreds of stories like these with most men in power.

Yes, and. Your point is what? Lots of men like this makes it okay? Lots of Epsteins are okay? Money gives you this right? Don’t dismiss what he did because it’s not rare or it’s coming out now. It happened.

I was waiting for final offer letter, but yesterday when I called recruiter, she informed they will not share offer letter. LOI itself is the offer letter & asked me to resign and share the LWD, so that they can share appointment letter.

Can I go ahead and submit my resignation? Any thoughts guys if its risky?
