Workplace Diversity

Last week for Halloween I dressed as a half man/half woman (oh what? like you haven't?), shaving half my beard and one leg and wearing make-up on one side of my face, with half a dress sewn to half a dress shirt. Overall it was quite, um, stunning.

A couple of days later I was sitting in a conference room with a dozen or so colleagues for a web conference on Discrimination Law. When it was mentioned that you have to allow it if you have a man in your office who wants to come to work in make-up everybody else in the room, as if on cue, turned and looked at me.

Not quite the reputation I'd hoped to establish at work.
