According to ABC News, an “inappropriate relationship” with a woman employee was behind the abrupt departure of Best Buy CEO Brian Dunn, the Star Tribune reported, citing a source close to the company.
The Star Tribune reported that, Dunn, who is married, was being investigated by the board of directors for the use of company resources to carry out an inappropriate relationship.
Now, here is my question. What is worse: male executives to whom power and position is like an aphrodisiac, or women employees who continue to “sleep their way to the top”?
It seems that for every jerk-toad who wants to use his power and position to have sex with women outside marriage, there is an accommodating woman. Remember Tiger Woods? He was pilloried by the media, but the women with whom he consorted got barely a “dishonorable mention.”
It seems like there is a double standard. Are the women getting off easy in these encounters, or what? Is society much more lenient when it comes to women?
