Because I don’t let the producer and director kiss me every morning or let them paw me they have spread word around town that I am not a woman — that I am a cold piece of marble statuary.” “I guess Hollywood won’t consider me as anything except a cold hunk of marble until I divorce my husband, give my baby away and get my name and photograph in all the newspapers.

My mom once told me never to trust someone who insisted on how nice they were. Nice guys were just nice, apparently, and didn’t need to tell you about it all the time. But, according to psychologist Dr. Jesse Marczyk, the ‘nice guy syndrome’ Hollywood rom-coms have familiarized us with may not always have such manipulative roots.

“The men who tend to get stuck in the friend-zone might not be attractive enough on their own (physically, socially, or otherwise), and so try to compensate for their shortcomings by investing in women more than their peers. In other words, they might use kindness to try and make up for what they lack elsewhere,” he told The Independent.

What we need, in fact, are new taboos that are appropriate to the new society we are struggling to create—taboos that will operate within the work setting as once they operated within the household. Neither men nor women should expect that sex can be used either to victimize women who need to keep their jobs or to keep women from advancement or to help men advance their own careers. A taboo enjoins. We need one that saves clearly and unequivocally, “You don’t make passes at or sleep with the people you work with.” Margaret Mead https://slate.com/human-interest/2017/11/article-by-margaret-mead-arguing-workplace-sex-should-be-made-into-a-taboo.html

It’s kind of like a children’s book for men that’s going to make this really simple and just bring them back to the basics.”

Ross then read from The Handsy Man, a basic tutorial for confused men who no longer know how to approach women in the workplace if they can’t give them back massages or smell their hair.
