Ladies and Kevin

A while ago, I posted about how I hated it when people started meetings or emails with the words “Jennifer and Gentlemen” because it was effectively singling me out as someone different.

Well today at work I had a novel experience – I had an email entitled “Ladies and Kevin”. I was trying to decide whether I had the same reaction – Kevin was being singled out for being different – and decided I didn’t. It’s such a novel thing where I work for there to be a man as the odd one out, that its almost novelty value.

    I don’t know if you saw the swimming on the news the other night. The commentator slipped smoothly from talking about the “men’s events” to how the “girls” did. I scream at the TV every time this happens. I find it so infuriating.

    I must say, you made me laugh about “Ladies and Kevin”, though!
