Yesterday I experienced something I hoped I never would. Someone made a comment in the office about a Chinese (or Japanese) man who was willing to pay millions of dollars to anyone who could turn his lesbian daughter straight. This started a round of all but 1 person in the office making very hurtful comments about 'f*gs' 'queers' 'homos' and several other unkind words.
Had it stopped there, I could just deal with it, but they decided to continue the conversation today, and although upper management was in the room, no one said a word. I left the office very upset this afternoon to go to a client's place, but it is really bothering me. We have one African-American guy in the office, and even he was in on it too. Most everyone at work knows I'm gay, but I don't make a huge deal of it.
I'm curious how many of you have experienced the same type of thing, and how many have said something about it?
