Bullying Is Bad

Bullying is bad
but is matriarchal bullying
any better than patriarchal bullying?
He once worked for a matriarchal company
and was told by female middle management that

the difference in different gender led com-
panies is that male-led companies
just fire your butt and you are
gone, yes, that fast, but
female-led com-
panies

beat                                                                                                                                       you with a wet
noodle till you plead for mercy
and then they keep you because they
don’t want to see you or your family hurt, and
that is why he kept being told that he was going

to be fired and management kept asking
if he was going to stay or quit and if he
found another job as of yet
and finally when he found
another job, every-
one sighed in
relief.
