I would report his comments. He is misogynistic and ignorant. I don’t care about playing ‘nice’ does your boss have a boss?? Go to THEM! 

I am glad you managed to control your rage, because there is never an excuse for clocking someone, no matter how stupid they are.

Floofy:  Ugh what a douche!

I am usually one to avoid confrontation and play the nice card, but that would make me mad too and I am not sure if i could have held my tongue.

Sad thing is his wife probably DOESNT find it charming.

I don’t suggest you get into a fight, but I would also not stand back and say nothing. Until you make it clear to this person that it is not OK to talk like that he will continue to do so, and your co-workers will also be afraid to speak up.

I would report his comments. Tell your boss that you would like to make a report against this coworker and his comments because he made you feel threatened, denigrated, and harrassed for being a woman in your workplace. Also let your boss know that you are going to start keeping a personal record of your coworker’s comments.

Using language like this should give your complaint an “official” air that your boss will find harder to sweep under the rug. Hopefully he takes action against this asshole.

I hope you do something about this, because this asshole sounds like a relative of the douche who shot all those people in Santa Barbara last week. We have to stop letting shit like this go.

Floofy:  Tell the boss that his “make nice” solution doesn’t work for you. Insist that this person be sent for sensitivity training. You have a right to a “safe” workplace. Do you live where there is Occupational Healthand Safety legislation? Contact them.

Do you have  Human Rights legislation where you live? If you do, tell the Boss that if he doesn’t take some serious action you wil be filing a complaint with the Human Rights Tribunal (or equivalent where you live.).

I don’t get why you don’t call him out on his shit…. you’re a  grown up why are you waiting for other people to take care of you?  I would verbally eviserate him, why not?  kiss and make up is just going to make you sick to your stomach and it’s not going to work.  Maybe he’ll back the eff up on his comments if he’s put in his place.
