New York state Sen. Marty Golden, a Republican, sent out a flyer this week inviting women in his Brooklyn-centered district “to Refresh [their] Business Etiquette and Social Protocol Skills” at a “Polish Professional” workshop later this month. The advertisement, which wasprovided to the blog of New York government publicationCity & State, offered session attendees the opportunity to learn about “handshakes and introductions,” as well as “posture, deportment and the feminine presence.”
Another description of the class on Golden’s website said that attendees would be taught to “sit, stand and walk like a model” and “walk up and down a stair elegantly,”according to City & State.
also, this shit is not new in New York. I had a professor who would tell us about the women she worked with on welfare who would be forced to go to ettiquette classes so they can get a man (no matter how abusive) and get off welfare. They would have they get their nails done and teach them how to put their man first so they wont leave.
I’m not even exaggerating.
This shit is a really real thing.
Dude, even I had to take an etiquette class. In fact, I have quite a few books lying around on the subject… I should bring em on out one of these days.
Meanwhile there’s a difference between teaching people how to be polite fucking people and teaching
people women how to respect shut their fucking mouths around other people men and curtsy and shit.
