That was a brilliant prank. You called me on exactly the bullshit I need to be called on. I put up pictures of half-naked girls around the office all the time and I never think about it. I’m taking you and Sam to lunch. And after that, we’re going to hang both prints, side by side.
I don't think so...
There is a huge difference between what you put on your own blog, which people can choose to visit, and what you put in your office when your employees are forced to see it every time they need to talk to you.
You don't like half naked 'shopped men? Don't read her blog. You don't like Rosie the Underboob? Quit your job. Or pray your boss is cool enough to let them call you out, but you're risking the rent on that one.
It's also a constant reminder of how even good-intentioned men can fall into normalising the sexualisation of women sometimes.
>>"It’d be great if it was always cool and unproblematic and didn’t lead to harassment and other bad things when people displayed their lust in the workplace. But that’s a hell of a long way from happening here in the real world, so taking the safe route and just keeping things clean and professional until we’ve sorted this shit out is nothing to do with being a prude and disliking sexuality"
>I find it endlessly amusing how many people are couching their comments as "Hey, I'm no prude, I just don't think there should be any public acknowledgement of sexuality without my approval."
