If Canada’s poised to take over America, then gays are poised to take over American offices. That is, if you believe a man named Kirk Snyder. He’s making a name for himself with his new book, The G Quotient: Why Gay Executives Are Excelling as Leaders . . . and What Every Manager Needs to Know, in which he asserts that gay men’s life experiences prepare them for the demanding task of managing an office:
Gay people are constantly having to dodge and weave and assess how and where they’re going as they grow up. And that manifests itself as three huge skills: adaptability, intuitive communications, and creative problem-solving.
Of course, Snyder doesn’t go the extra mile to point out the problems of overarching generalizations. Nor does Details Magazine, for they’ve devoted an entire article to the subject. You can read the entire piece here. If you’re not into pouring over the details of a fag-rag dressed in breeder’s clothing, here’s the rousing conclusion:
…If your new boss happens to be gay, chances are you’ll be happier and more fulfilled in your job. And even if you’re not, the consolation is that there’s still one area in which he’s likely to excel. Says [gay manager Jason Smith], “We throw the fiercest holiday parties.”
And they’re great at turning a dud into a stud, cook a mean cornish hen and provide you with the latest gossip. Yay gay!
