From An Employee Handbook in America

A mega-media company where management just wanted boys to be boys, I presume:
“Working at Tribune means accepting that you might hear a word that you, personally, might not use,” the new handbook warned. “You might experience an attitude you don’t share. You might hear a joke that you don’t consider funny. That is because a loose, fun, nonlinear atmosphere is important to the creative process.” It then added, “This should be understood, should not be a surprise and not considered harassment.”
Apparently the lawsuits that followed didn't turn out quite the way the old boys had hoped.
