Cafe owner wants female staff on period to wear red sticker sparking outrage

Posted on

A CAFE owner has been branded a “misogynist” after revealing he wants female staff to wear red stickers when on their periods.

The boss, who runs a coffee shop in Australia, stunned radio listeners after revealing he came up with his “humiliating” plan as he was having problems with a staff member who was having “women’s issues”.

Calling into the Kyle and Jackie O show on KIIS, the manager, called Anthony, told of his controversial idea and said the woman was “emotionally stressed and hormonal” as she was on her period.

He said he then decided it would be a good idea for his female staff to expose when it is that time of the month by wearing a red sticker so he could identify when they need “extra space”, reports news.com.au.

Anthony said: “It’s very difficult for guys to understand when someone’s going through a bit of a rough patch.

“So we had an issue between two staff that developed in front of customers, and we’ve got an outsourced HR company that we use.

“And the outcome resulted in the female staff member explaining that her reaction was due to women’s issues and she was emotionally stressed and hormonal and all of that.

“So in order to avoid that, we thought it would be a good idea to wear a red sticker if you’re going through a period and just need a bit of understanding or space.”

The shocked presenters asked how big the stickers would be.

Anthony explained: “It could have a little smiley face on it to keep it looking friendly.”

The under-fire boss said the sticker would also let customers know when his staff were on their period.

He added: “Well, the way I see the whole thing is, if someone is learning to drive a car right, they stick an L-plate on the car.

“That’s not for their benefit, it’s for the people around them to give them some space and not toot the horn, and stress the person out.

“So it’s the same idea, just for women’s issues.”

Jackie O – who gasped at the idea – branded the plan as “humiliating”.

She said: “No that’s kind of humiliating, women don’t want to have it advertised that ‘hey I’m on my period’.

“And they certainly wouldn’t want customers knowing that.”

A flood of callers also backed her opinion, calling the manager out as a “misogynist”.

One listener, Darren, said: “Anthony mate, seriously you’re a misogynist hardcore dude, you’ve got mummy issues.”

Another, Bella, added: “Oh my god, you are seriously the most insensitive d**kwad I have ever heard of.

“Everyone in your world is so backward and I hope everyone who knows you is ashamed.”

It comes after an angry boss left a note telling his female staff that they “looked like they had just crawled out of bed” and to “put on some make-up”.

The long list of requirements from the “entitled” bar boss was posted on Reddit and divided opinion.

The note asks staff to wear the correct uniform and that employees with long hair keep it tied back for hygiene reasons.

But the boss then appears to slam his female workers adding, “you have a public job, you are not sitting at home hiding behind a computer”.

He writes: “Please put on some make-up, sometimes, some of you look like you just crawled out of bed and came to work.

“You are the first and last impression our customers have of [the bar], please take some pride in your appearance.”

The Sun also revealed how a bad boss sent an email to his female workforce telling staff to take baths and use “feminine deodorant”.

The message, leaked by a former employee, was branded by some Reddit users as “sexist” – but not all agreed.

According to the worker, the email was sent only to women, citing lifestyle choices to help keep themselves smelling fresh.
