My naivete does not stretch so far as to think this has never been an advantage for me. In most corporate arenas, I can walk into the same room as a woman, we can say the same things, present the same persona, and I will be seen as:
I don’t know how I expected a rape victim to act, but I didn’t expect her to be so funny. Or to be punk, in this kinda sexy bleached blonde but kind of too lazy to really care sort of way. Or to be so up front.
