Recently, a girl named Azita got a promotion and her male co-worker just couldn't handle it. In a flustered attempt at "not being sexist", he texted her saying he felt he deserved the position more because it was better "suited to a man."

She shared screenshots of the texts exchange with her co worker which read:

Because it's not at all offensive to tell someone what they deserve or not...

Of course, considering the position required a knowledge of numbers - and women are "too emotional", he obviously deserved the position more. He did, however, offer her an alternative saying she'd be "a lot more successful as a secretary" - because clearly that's the role that women should have!

Never mind that she didn't have to bring her boss coffee everyday to be chosen for the position. Who counts hard work or merit, anyway?

Gender, work and society: ‘Women must play role in economy’

Azita's response, however, would make any professional proud; she reminded him that he had an analysis report due the next day...

But of course he meant absolutely no offence- he was simply being honest!

Azita has now reported the incident to the HR department.
