Just wait until Ric Romero gets a hold of this story. He's gonna blow the lid off this one in 2024.

What exactly does a wine ambassador do?  Forge treaties with scotch and rum ambassadors?

In other news, sky blue, water wet, and there's two kinds of alcohol marketing: sex-focused, and "survive your in-laws this Christmas" focused.

Gay men do the same thing. A guy hits you up. "Hey there sexy," yadda yadda. You politely reject their advances. "Well f*ck you you're too fat anyway you ugly f*ggot I hope you get AIDS."

It's a male entitlement thing, and the sexism only makes it worse.

So what are we doing about it? Nothing? Okay. Like, if everyone knows this is a problem, why is it still a problem?

The short answer:  men won't lift a finger to help. They don't see it as their (personal) problem to solve, but they're (we're) the only ones with the power to solve it.

The beer mug with the bikini clad girl that has the bikini vanish when cold beer is poured in is shocked, I say shocked, to hear this

The whole article was garbage: the woman mentioned in it didn't even sound qualified for the job she was applying for (WTF is a "freelance wine influencer"?) and then another woman didn't like the way men looked at her.  Sounds like some idiot thought posting about wine on her social media entitled her to a job in the wine industry and then blamed sexism when she didn't get hired.  And yes I will admit there are douchebags who will give women jobs in exchange for sexual favors, but this isn't unique to this industry.

"Then, at an awards ceremony soon after, a man from that company began to touch her waist, shoulders, and hair, and edge towards kissing her neck. 'Brushing him off' had no effect. Only when his assistant stepped in did he stop."

What in God's name makes some men think that it's OK to approach an unknown woman that way?

It's because ladies get women drink free night at bars. You gotta give something in return.

Men are pretty terrible.

Perhaps if women didn't feel unwelcome around drinking men there wouldn't be a need to try to attract them with free booze.

Why do I think no industry is as bad as pharma reps or is that a bygone cliche?

Do women even have time to drink after cooking, cleaning and caring for children?

Probably something about men not having been conditioned from birth to interact with women in a manner which any number of groups see as summum bonum of behavior.

Women are worse.
