So we've had a good year at work and we've actually been invited to an industry awards ceremony. Unfortunately despite being nominated for three awards you have to pay for your seats at a couple of hundred quid each. Because of this the decision was made that instead of the whole department going, the head of dept. would go and so would the CEO.
Now in our department we have two seniors as well, of which I am one, and the other is a very capable female member of staff. Why does her gender matter you ask? Well because I've just found out that to present a better appearance at the awards ceremony, they are taking her along as well. The reason I wasn't asked is very specifically because I have a penis, and because of this I will miss out on the opportunity to spend an evening with the CEO and head of our department having drinks, food and awards, and the potential future opportunities that presents.
It's just such bullshit and I'm fed up of people complaining about how guys have it easier, because it's obvious to me that in some situations, such as this one, the opportunity literally only exists if you are a member of the correct class.
