Japan could have a world class and extremely powerful military, but refrains from developing one.
I don't know how much you have been paying attention to the news lately, but Japan just elected a right-wing head of government who wishes to change that. Just some food for thought.
But let's put that point aside for the moment. Do you honestly think it is more unprofessional of someone to post a private conversation than for the other party to call them a demeaning name (a name which was of a sexual nature in this case) in said conversation? Perhaps the actions of both are unprofessional, in a sense. Perhaps she could have solved this in private. Honestly, I don't know, and I personally suspect that there may be more to the situation than is being let on. But I think anyone with an iota of common sense would agree it is extraordinarily unprofessional to start calling anybody names of any sort just because they don't want to work for you without compensation. It's goes beyond being unprofessional to just being plain old stupid.
And my point is that this is even more batshit crazy than donglegate.
I think that's quite a stretch. This is more ridiculous than two people being fired over a penis joke?
Donglegate at least involved a public space. This involves a private message between two individuals. Publishing such a message and making a big deal out of it is not only completely unprofessional on her part, it may actually be illegal in some jurisdictions.
Not in the United States, it isn't. Of course, I am not a lawyer.
Honestly, I don't know for certain if this particular individual is actually a total sexist. That wasn't my point. My point was that compared to the batshit retardation that was donglegate, this is something that people should actually be up in arms about-barring any circumstances of which we are currently unaware.
Who cares about GTAV?.
I have a billion dollars that would like to have a word with you.
