Maybe I should turn around when I give a talk?
This weekend at a conference, a famous guy in my field skipped my talk, which was conveniently timed at the end of the meeting after most everyone had left. At dinner, someone remarked that he had given his talk ahead of me, and he said something like “I keep trying to get behind Julie.” I wanted to ask him whether he would come to my talk if I turned around and faced the screen so that he could see my ass, but I didn’t. I am not new in this field, and he has known me for 15 years. I am furious.
