"My life in Hollywood sucks" - October Calendar

Think your experience in Tinseltown is worse than everyone else's? Tell me how on the "My Life In Hollywood Sucks Because..." entry. Your tale of woe might just make it to the monthly calendar.

[Ed. Note:  Some of you think I make too many references to sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior in Hollywood.  I only do so exists.  I've seen it happen.  I've heard from people about their experiences.  I've seen job postings that sure seem odd.  Steve McPherson left ABC amidst a sexual harassment investigation.  And then there's Casey Affleck's recent settlement.  So if you wonder why I write about it, now you know.]

It's not that I don't want you to make references to sexual harassment, it's that I think you are better than that. As a male reader of your material, it's hard to relate to a female protagonist time and time again who complains about being sexually harassed. Of course it's wrong, but there's got to be other ways of exploring it other than "my boss made me wear something revealing...and now he is making awkward passes at me."

Your Sugar Tits article is great because it deviates from that, and explores people who may be professionally qualified, but are passed over for hot pieces of ass. I myself have been told on numerous occasions that I am more than qualified, but the man in charge wants a female assistant because they tend to be, and i quote, "more nurturing."

All I'm saying is that you can do better, I've seen it. On the whole, those videos are the bright spot of my week, and the executive's incompetence is the funniest thing to me, and everyone i talk to, because it's what we all can relate to and it's superbly written.

I wouldn't get down on him for the calendar blurbs. He publishes the things he's sent. I know because I sent him one.
