Workplace Discrimination: A Bisexual Worker’s Story

“The prevailing logic has remained that if I am out as a bisexual woman, I must be asking for something: discrimination, harassment, or even sexual assault.” — Faith Cheltenham
In her personal video, which you can view below, Faith Cheltenham recounts her experiences of sexual harassment in her workplace when disclosing her bisexuality to her colleagues; even her supervisor said that she was asking for sexual innuendos from co-workers. In addition to describing her experiences as a black bisexual woman—which were more difficult in large part due to the “multiplier effect” of sexual orientation and race-based discrimination and bias—she explains the lack of fairness in her workplace experiences.

Same here. This guy at work always tell us he's the queen that runs the show. His boyfriend is forever taking him to some island or some vacation and buying him cars.

Oh and how would her supervisor know about her orientation???

I guess some people are more willing to share their personal info than others...

LOL

The guy at my job damn near shoved a photo in my face of him in drag while I was on lunch. I think I commented on everything BUT him in the picture lol. I was like "oh, I know that neighborhood, is that a roof you're posing on". After awhile he got the message, but another co-worker was like "oh John you should also show your pics to Jenn, at least she would appreciate it"

I'm likeErmmStern Smile

personal sexuality? my natural inclination is to reply, "white people". however, it's just people that lack boundaries in general and give too much too soon. they just, in my experience, tend to be white.  

in general, sexuality comes up in my field/work/profession/blah/blah/blah. so that i can actually relate to.

yes, but is he any good at it? you skipped over that part. and by "good" i mean "has developed a well rounded look and character". people seem to be still laboring under the delusion/misconception that all drag is fishy. 

however, that's just my personal interest and doesn't pertain to the issue/thread at hand. 

please, carry on everyone.
