• Mike Rinder had a terrible time dealing with women

    Mike Rinder had a terrible time dealing with women in a professional setting. It was 10 times worse for the women than it was for the men. It’s not that he was pleasant to the men or complimented them, but it was very, very mild compared to the treatment the women got. He picked on the women—and I don’t mean just “picked on” them. I had a colleague who—I don’t know how she survived it. And he even later once admitted in a moment of clarity that he had been very hard on her. That was about as far as he would go. “Yeah, I guess I was pretty hard on her.” But he definitely dealt with women in a different way than he did with men. He was bad with all people, in my observation, but much, much worse with women.
