  • I personally also felt uncomfortable with the whole strip part. Both because of the strip itself and because of the wrongly applied peer pressure. I was glad that many clapped hands when one of the guys went back to his seat. I just hope he also felt that we applaud his move.

    I believe that if there was a woman in the group of people who were supposed to compete the whole stripping idea would have not come up but still it was not a good idea.

    I am embarrassed that I did not stand up and protest the compet

      I was on stage in this situation. In fact, I was the first one to step out of it. Did people applaud? I honestly don't remember. There can't have been too many. All I remember is that a lady friend, who was in my group there, told me I did the right thing, for which I'm thankful.

      The reason I stepped out, is simply that I will not be bullied into humiliating behavior.

      It is a joke gone out of control.

      I am really glad that in the end the "is my bitch" T-shirt was outbid for next years conference. I personally would not like to wear such shirt any time.
      Agreed. In fact, I did a bid on brian d foy's idea, simply to block the "is my bitch", er, design.

      I can't believe so many people bid for it. It's tacky, borderline vulgar. You want to be taken seriously in the corporate world (after all, the conference theme will be "corporate Perl"), and then you come up with this?? Really.
