I used to work for some sexist creeps in the music industry. One of my boss’s favourite office ‘games’ was to work out whether female artists were ‘lesbian or slag’, because of course they couldn’t be anything else, right? They also cut a domestic violence story out of a newspaper and stuck it to the wall because they thought it was ‘funny’. My boss informed me once or twice that in his opinion I was ‘fit’.
When I brought a serious grievance against them (for something else), they hacked into my email and found to their horror that I had not been living like a nun since I’d started work for them. They emailed information about my personal life to my union rep and threatened to make a fuss about my ‘inappropriate behaviour’ unless I dropped the grievance. Their slut-shaming cost me not only justice but my job too, as I couldn’t stay after that. I guess it was just #MFIF.
