Here I  thought emasculating meant the removal of testicles before a person or animal has a chance to experiance puberty.

Guys can still chase girls ( and girls do chase the guys too ), but the modern man needs to be a bit more [subtle] respectful about it. [Especially if you] Regardless of whether you are going to be in the same work environment after being turned down.

 

 

Fixed that for you :)

Strikethrough isn't documented but it works the same as bold. Jjust use an S instead.

Santamaria was recruited by Yurisich, who worked with Santamaria at Al Jazeera.
...
Yurisich is now on leave while an external review – ordered by Power – is carried out by an employment lawyer into TVNZ's hiring practices.
TVNZ's editor of newsgathering, Phil O’Sullivan, is now acting head of news and current affairs.

Is it not generally accepted these days that coworkers shouldn't be getting into close personal relationships at all? Maybe I'm too conservative, but I just don't think it's professionally appropriate to be crossing that boundary.

A friend of mine told me when I was starting in the workforce in a role that was about 98% female-staffed (I was one of three males in our department, from memory) "never screw the crew". Crude advice but has served me well.

No, there's no general prohibition. It happens a lot and there is nothing inherently wrong with having a relationship with someone at work. You spend a lot of time with people at work and if both parties are interested then it's going to happen. Banning relationships in the workplace would be more likely to cause problems as it forces the relationship underground.

 

There's plenty of potential for issue, especially if there are power imbalances, but generally it happens without many problems.

About time the guy who appointed him had the spotlight shone on him. I smell cronyism - which never goes over well with staff.

I met my wife in the work place. Just celebrated our 20th anniversary back in March. We didn't work in the same team or department but it was a small/medium sized business of ~130 employees so we couldn't exactly ignore each other during the day.

Sometimes it can work out well, and that's great - congratulations, by the way. However, with the scenario here though, the attention was unwanted and that's why it was an issue.

Eva888: emasculate
/ɪˈmaskjʊleɪt/
gerund or present participle: emasculating
1.
deprive (a man) of his male role or identity.

Rather than choosing words out of context to dissect, it’s always appreciated when readers try to understand the entire essence of a discussion. Unfortunately interpretations often vary considerably from the writer's intentions. For anyone that wondered, the use of emasculate referred to natural masculine instinct being curbed.

 

The "natural masculine instinct" isn't to behave like a creep. I find it pretty insulting that you think that men need to behave that way to be "masculine."

I honestly don't think that is what she meant. I don't agree with the point she was originally trying to make, but I don't think it warrants the degree of disapproval being expressed. I don't have the impression she thinks masculinity equates with creepiness.

The concept of "masculinity" and "male role" is utter bollocks and best buried.
