Once in a group chat, team members referred to a new Asian American recruit as slanty eye joe. It was normal for guys to refer to other guys as fags when they didn’t participate in private parties where sex and drugs were involved. It was normal for guys to openly refer to attractive female colleagues as sluts when they refused to go out with them. They had private chats where guys wrote sexual fantasy stories about female colleagues and supervisors where they performed all sorts of demeaning acts on the women.

Frat house mentality that runs rampant in the silicon valley. Unchecked mostly because there are not enough women or POC’s to check them. Also not enough men who fit the frat boy “culture fit”.
