You'd be surprised, but: advertising. It's a very straight bro-oriented, misogynistic and rather homophobic environment. And, no, I'm not talking about the Mad Men era; my partner has been working in advertising since mid-nineties and has experienced his share of homophobia and witnessed horrible misogyny at a number of agencies where he worked, even not that long ago.

R2 I love that you used the expression 'bated breath' correctly, rather than spelling it 'baited'.

This is a reverse 'Oh Dear'.

Is teaching still filled with homophobes? I recall wanting to be a school teacher at one point, but talked myself out of it, knowing I'd be fighting against parental homophobia.

R15 this is absolutely true, especially if you’re not out, which is sometimes necessary... they’ll catch a whiff and turn on you like hyenas. Working with all women is the worst workplace experience I ever had.

R29 A group of women need to be dominated. They crave it. They don't know how to behave as a group in the presence of a man unless the man is commanding. I know you would have had no sexual interest in them (ewwww), but that shouldn't have stopped you from playing favourites, raising one up one day only to put her down the next, keeping them all on their toes. It's what a group of women need from a man. If they don't get it, they the bacchanal women tearing the god apart with their bare hands.

by Anonymousreply 3302/21/2021

Women are more homophobic than men. It’s subtle, but by the time you realize it, you’re done. I can take the youthful teasing of men, the old days of fag bashing are pretty well done. Women play mind games.

Some of these replies are duly noted and I will keep them in mind when interacting with certain types of people in the office.

by Anonymousreply 3502/21/2021

R33 is spot-on and how men will navigate corporate America in the future is insane to think of, women will only allow the broken pussy-whipped fools to stay. If you dominate them you’ll have to look like Brad Pitt, have Trump Daddy Molester vibes and Obama big dick vibes. Women are thriving in the current environment because they’ve created such a narrow allowance of behavior that they always when if they decide someone shouldn’t be around.

I’m not sure if they are homophobic, but science types like physics, chemistry, and biology have historically been very misogynistic.

No better way to challenge homophobia, but with a deluge of misogynistic comments. 🙄

by Anonymousreply 3802/21/2021

[quotes] types like physics, chemistry, and biology have historically been very misogynistic.

Holding everyone to the same standard is not misogyny. If a woman can't cut it in science because she is unable to make judgements unemotionally, that isn't the fault of the logical men around her.

by Anonymousreply 3902/21/2021

R38 yet another one of the Woke Woman Worship brigade here on Datalounge that sees any criticism of women as a sin against humanity and misogyny. 🙄

She’s the one who’s always screaming about how “ALL men are rapists” in any thread about female sex offenders. Please, Cunt. Fuck off.

Blue collar people tend to be homophobic... electricians, plumbers etc.

by Anonymousreply 4102/21/2021

Yes, R41 - blue collar and skilled trades such as construction, landscaping, HVAC, pipefitting and unskilled white-trashy type careers - such as oil and gas, trucking, forestry, fishing, automotive industry, factories and so on tend to attract deplorable homophobic types. Some of those careers pay well but require little to no education or training.

by Anonymousreply 4202/21/2021

I mentioned oil and gas workers, but really, just about anything energy related - coal, oil and gas, hydro-electric workers are majorly homophobic types.

Stonewall UK, our largest 'LGBT' organisation, is very homophobic. It's basically a trans rights group now, supporting transitioning for vulnerable young gays and lesbians.

R29 I’ve had the most negative experience with very extravert women and similar gay men. They constantly need attention and positive affirmation. If you have a bad day and don’t feel like socialising much, they immediately think you have some problem with them and a lot of drama ensues.

by Anonymousreply 5602/22/2021

Sadly, you can't rule out musical theatre -At least not in regional and community theatre venues. In my area we have a very large Christian theatre, and actors must sign purity pledges and swear they are not gay -or they will not be cast. I refuse to audition there on principal, but other gay actors sign the pledges and put up with the pre-show prayer circles. Many artistic directors are horribly homophobic, but of necessity look the other way when it comes to getting the right people in (money above everything!).

by Anonymousreply 5702/22/2021

Chiropractic profession-schools always seemed homophobic

by Anonymousreply 5802/22/2021

So this thread should show you that even in 2021, many gays find discrimination and hostility in their workplaces.

It was very worse years ago - which is why most people were closeted at work. And for some, it's still a wise move.

There are always some people on this board who will call these people cowards and everyone needs to be out at all times. Unfortunately, that's not how life works.

This thread is sad, but I believe it to be true.
