I’m a woman and I sort of don’t see the big deal about The Taint room either. Especially since women have a taint as well. It’s not like the conference room is called, “The dick and balls room.” Though I’m not sure I’d be offended by that either. What I find offensive is any kind of bullying or belittling. Can we please tackle those people before getting upset about the name of a conference room? Speaking about both female and male managers here. BTW. So if you are one of those, and you’ve left some venom here about The Taint room, I would encourage you to be sure you’re being as kind and inclusive as you can at work as well. BTW this Taint Room is all over LinkedIn now. Oh boy.

GCD1- but don’t you think there should be a bare minimum of decorum in the workplace to not name conference rooms after genitalia-adjacent body parts?? The only “culture” I see this evidence of is bacterial in nature. Eww.

Heard around that she was freelancing and her contract was up. Nothing about being let go. I don’t know the full story but I will say I’ve seen a pattern of women taking advantage of the #metoo hashtag in unhealthy ways. Usually white women in the name of feminism when their feminism is rarely intersectional or goes beyond their personal situation. Something to keep in mind before jumping to judgements.

Dude is gender neutral to me.

Anyway, I hear what your saying after reading your logic. But most women do have a me too story in adland. And it is ME too. Of course it’s about sharing personal narratives of abuse.

But, even this specific instance aside, this shit isn’t something people bring up to help their careers. It hurts careers. It’s like saying people cry assault for attention.

White women suck. But white women get harassed as well. Saying “you’re making if about you” after speaking up about trauma... ooof.

Sad to add to this story but there is a girl team that sits in the taint and they’re the butt of every joke no pun intended

I agree and that’s essentially the point I was trying to make. But I do think it’s especially bad form, not to mention bad optics, to leave something like that unaddressed given the current climate. The fact of the matter is, it was disgusting then but people were more inclined to laugh it off or try and ignore it for fear of being ridiculed for being overly sensitive or “no fun”. Knowing what the vibe was like at Anomaly, it’s sad but kind of understandable.

I know it’s stupid, but there is a woman I worked with years ago who has friends/peers that are friends of mine. We were never friends, just acquaintances- got a drink once. Had lunch. Not close. At all. She’s very well regarded in her profession, and I in mine. I’ve recommended people to her teams, I’ve sent her great interns, I’ve shared her job postings when she has them, I’ve basically tried to support and connect her to great people. CONT in comments.

Should I ask for a raise?

My 6-month review is next week and I’m thinking about asking for a raise. I’ve never asked for one before and normally would never think of asking for one until at least 12 months but in the last couple of months my role and responsibilities have enhanced significantly. I don’t have much experience as this is my first job in advertising (comms background) and I don’t want to come off as naive or ignorant! Any advice would be welcomed. Thank you!
