Its weird that people spend 40 hours a week with the same people for years and years...and no one ever brings up their SO? Not even in a superficial way? Like "My boyfriend loves those cookies but I hate them"

I don't know

a coworker mentioned mountain dew lowers a guy's sperm count and he said he doesn't have to worry about that

I stopped the conversation after that

I didn't want to know any more

they tell me about their bowels, periods, UTIs here.....I hate it
white people do this to me a lot...I don't know why *shrugs* not like I want to know or can help you about it.DeadLOL

eta: I think I know why--it's a nosiness tactic, they'll tell me all about their lives and expect me to do the same. umm...no.Ermm


Same here Dead 

 I don't wanna know the outside of you, what the hell makes you think I want to know your insides?? They'll tell you their whole damn life story as if your life is SOOO insignificant that you're just dying to hear about theirs. DeadDead

Yeah...no & NO.

I still don't see how bisexuality comes up in casual convo tho...

"hey, Cassandra bring a date to the party, ok?"

"sure, I'll bring my girlfriend.  Oh, by the way, I'm bi so next month I might have a boyfriend instead"

"cool!  see you saturday"

LOL

It's more like...

"I'm bringing my girlfriend."

"Your girlfriend??? I didn't know you were gay!"

"I'm bi."

Nope nope nope! Those people are not my friends and I do not want to connect with them on that level. Besides that workplace drama thread was enough to remind me to keep my personal business to myself. LOL

I think if you know you are have stances or preferences that are either controversial, nontraditional or that people probably carry bigotry towards, those topics are off limits.  I'm black and can't nor would I hide that but I'm not talking race at work.  I'm pro gun control.  People have strong feelings about their right to bear arms.  I'm not bringing up or joining in a discussion on the topic.  I'm in a heterosexual marriage.  My coworkers know I'm married, but I'm talking about my orientation nor activity at work.

Discrimination is never okay but there are instances where you can be proactive.  If this lady is living her life out and people see her outside of work and then discriminate/harass at work, then she has every right to be proactive and go after them.  They are wrong.  

I do however take issue with people who want to blast off in your face and then call you xyz when you disagree.  I'm at work to work.  We clown but maturity and common sense let's you know what's off limits.
