"YTA - I'm surprised by the responses here, honestly. I would be uncomfortable if I was a woman on a work trip where two male coworkers suddenly started inquiring about another woman's nipples. I get that different people have different thresholds for what is and isn't okay, but it's not *weird* for someone to be bothered by that, and it's a little shitty to take this Cool Girl posture that shames her for having boundaries with coworkers. You're the team lead! Take a little responsibility, for goodness' sake. But more importantly, it does seem like her being moved off the team was retaliation, and she has every right to be bothered by that. I just don't understand the comments criticizing her for this." 🤔 "Yeah, I feel like a lot of people here are living in some alternate reality. “OMG, look at this outrageously prudish woman! She...doesn’t want to hear about her team leader’s pierced clitoral hood while on a business trip!” Objecting to hearing about a co-worker’s genitals is always okay, and I really question the ethics of anyone who thinks otherwise." 😳
