A fed-up lesbian stirred up laughs and kudos on Reddit when she put a homophobic work bully in his place. This dude is going to have to have a serious talk with his mom! Here is the full story.
She Doesn’t Hide Anything
OP is a lesbian who works in a male-dominated company.
She is open about her sexuality, and pretty much everyone on the job knows she’s gay.
She Thinks She Looks the Part
OP also says that she fits most of the lesbian stereotypes.
She works in a manual trade, lifts weights, hunts and camps, and likes to work on cars. She also has very short hair and fingernails.
She Is True to Herself
OP’s point in detailing her physical characteristics is to make it clear that she does not try to hide the fact that she’s a lesbian.
She’s on Her Own
OP feels like she has to be tough and open about her sexuality because her management wont’ do anything to stop harassment.
And her company has no HR at all.
They Have Her Back
Luckily, OP works with a solid team who have her back and don’t give her any flak about her sexuality.
If anything, she says, her day-to-day coworkers help her keep management in line.
But There’s Still Trouble
But there are a couple of exceptions, and OP still runs into trouble now and then.
He Was a Bully
Recently, one OP’s coworkers approached her and said he had heard she was gay…except that he used a hateful slur.
She Let Him Have It
Rather than get into a fight, OP decided to have some fun with her bigoted colleague.
So she went into a fake rage.
She Set Him Straight
First, OP told the man that she was 100% straight and married to a wonderful man.
Then she told him that she was a Christian, implying that she didn’t believe in homosexuality.
She Wanted Names
The guy started to backtrack, but OP kept at it.
She wanted to know who had told him that she was a lesbian.
An Old Nemesis
The coworker hesitated just briefly and then gave up the name.
It didn’t surprise OP since she’d had similar run-ins with the named man in the past.
She Had a Zinger
But OP kept her joke going and said that just because she had slept with the other man’s mom one time, that didn’t mean she was a lesbian.
They Couldn’t Control Their Laughter
The other men in the shop had started paying attention, and they were all pretty amused by OP’s gag.
When she unleashed the “your mom” joke, many of them burst out laughing.
She Hit Him Hard
That’s when the homophobic coworker finally got the idea, and he asked OP if she was punking him.
She smiled and told him he should have caught on years ago when she started sneaking into his mom’s house at night.
He Was Mortified
The bully stormed off, mad at being humiliated, but the rest of OP’s coworkers got a kick out of the final punchline.
Was She Out of Line?
In the aftermath, OP was happy she stood up to her bully, but she also feels bad for making misogynist jokes of her own.
She also feels a tiny bit guilty for pushing her prank so far.
