Prejudice? Sexual Bias? In the real world these comments will get you and your company sued for liable or sexual harassment, not to mention that these attitudes might be reason that "they are out to get you!"
Also note the tone of those offended, they are the hard-working cooperative, caring professionals who are "willing to work together" and "practice with integrity"; who go to their
manager and co-workers to tell the "absolute truth" regarding the "backstabbers."
Had the "backstabber faced them directly they would have been aggressive, confrontational, manipultive and "cliquish."
Yet when that person goes to the manager discuss them, they are incompetent, scary, cruel, hurtful, insecure, controlling, unkind catty, disrespectful, lying gossips who are just trying to climb the ladder over your body.
We all make mistakes, but if it was enough to get you fired you might want to take a long hard look in the mirror and see if you
might in reality have at least an inkling of responsibilty yourself.
