In adulthood I realize that the only way to get respect in the corporate world is to have a penis. Corporate america doesn't care how intelligent you are, how hard you work, or even how reliable & trustworthy you are; if you don't have a penis you are overlooked.
You know, I remember watching TV the morning after President Obama was elected and someone said "NOW I believe that anyone can be anything." NOPE. Women are often overlooked on the corporate ladder. Why is it that men believe women are only good for cooking, cleaning, and raising the children?
