As I was inviting a younger colleague to our women’s networking event at the conference last night, and worrying over the amount of food that I’d ordered, one of her male colleagues decided that his input was also necessary.
Him: A Women’s Networking Breakfast? Surely it won’t matter how many donuts you ordered — women won’t eat them!
Him: Because they worry about getting fat!
Him: I mean, have you ever heard a man ask, “Does my butt look fat in this dress?”
Me: (with a sigh.) You know, I’d take you on, but I have dinner plans.
And we turned and walked away.
