So i just had a male coworker tell me that I forgot to shave my legs and that he thought he should tell me because he didn’t want me to have an embarrassing moment….
mind u i was wearing pants but somehow when i sat down they crept up a bit and he got a peek of some stubble.
At first i just laughed and I tried to explain to him that women have hair too snd that its ok to have leg hair and that we dont actually shave everyday and some rather not shave at all and
that is still ok.
He dropped it and we left it at that but i just dont understand how he thought it was Ok to comment on someone’s appearance like that so i decided to ask him very politely if he thought it
was ok to do so and his response was,
“I would like someone to tell me if theres something wrong my appearance or if something looks bad on me”; So i stood there dumbfounded because in his mind and perception
he GENUINELY believes that hair in women is an appearance flaw and it was perfectly ok to let me know.
Im coming to work with a dress tomorrow just so i can give him grief about it!
