    I worked in the corp. world since the '70s. Don't take this the wrong way - take it as experience talking.

    You are a large white male - you are guilty until proven innocent and if you are innocent you will be hurt.

    You are in a Soviet era situation - you are being sent to a re-education camp. Fighting or a bad attitude will only be saying to the powers - he just doesn't get it.

    Learn their system and play the system for your benefit.

    Glad to hear your doing that, beat them at their own stupid little game. They need to know that if they truly want to create that type of atmosphere, there will be repercussions.

    I am a federal LEO, and work with very few women in the office. I have been told by two female co- workers that, prior to getting to know me, they were afraid of me because I looked mean.

    I have also had several female witnesses tell me the same thing, and a female suspect pooped her pants during an interview. :eek:

    You come across strong in person?? P'SHAW! I'd have never guessed. :rofl:

    Yap, complain, stomp, cry, whatever. But before, during and after that, if you are worth your salt, you'll do a double-check to see if you might resemble the person he/she was speaking about. It COULD be you. And do you really want to go through life being thought of as "that guy"???

    I'm not saying you are or aren't. I don't know you or the leprechaun sitting on your shoulder in your avatar, but when I hear something negative about myself, even if I'm ADAMANT it's them, I do a pretty thorough self-check anyhow.

    Some dude at a bar: "I can make a woman go weak in the knees with one look."

    Fist of Goodness: "Oh yeah, I can make chicks poop their pants."

    This sort of reaction might be the real issue.

    You can not beat them "at their own game". The "Over Lords" have taken control and left you no security , or power !

    All anti Unions should take a look at history (Nuclear Jack Welch-GE , Ragan-omicis with it's 'trickle down , lean and mean , can do ethics ) and what we should have learned by now.

    Profiteers , call the shots now and no , you have no-one to cover your back now . You are a family man so you need to take a step back and look at it another way.The "Ball" is not in our court anymore so ?

    Employers have become "Over Lords" so as one family man to another , know your limits and chill the "Testosterone" !

    He has every right to be pissed! I for one would not be to happy if somebody made a complaint against my persona regardless of what it is. We are individuals and have the right to be who we are. If other people have an issue with that it is their problem not his.

    Contact GLADD and get a free button to wear around the office. Then look people in the eye and speak confidently as usual.

    How could they possibly have a problem with that? :rofl:

    Common tactic used by police and other professional interrogators, denying use of restroom facilities. Sometimes it results in the subject messing themselves.

    There is nothing wrong with you and I wish you well. In todays disfunctional workplace, many are found not to be a good fit due to color, size, weight, accent, and the list goes on. Know that many groups would give all for someone like you.
