It Takes A Snowflake To Know A Snowflake

One day, in the breakroom, one of my coworkers loudly breaks out a REALLY sexist joke. The entire room goes dead silent while he is laughing and grinning around like he expects everyone, including several women, to join in on his fun. Finally, the guy he is talking to speaks up.

Coworker: “No, no, no. No. That isn’t funny.”

Sexist Coworker: “What? Man, it’s just a joke!”

Coworker: *Gesturing at the crowd* “And no one else is laughing, which means it is not a good one. Just… just don’t. That’s not okay.”

Sexist Coworker: *Starting to sound angry* “It’s humor! You just need to learn to not be so sensitive!”

Coworker: “Like the way you’re being sensitive over your joke falling flat?”

The sexist coworker didn’t have a response to that.
