WSC: Is Monogamy a Social Construct?
I don't know. Treat your female coworkers with respect regardless.
Welcome to the Wall Street Confessions newsletter.
In this edition of WSC: an exclusive confession with commentary by yours truly, the three things you should read this week (because we’re all in love with media consumption), and a recap of the latest episode of Succession.
No woman, or person, should have to deal with this in the workplace… time and time again, we’ve seen stories on Wall Street Confessions of women being put into situations where they aren’t comfortable with their superiors, and in any situation really.
Enough is enough. It’s time to do better and do something about the way women are treated. All we’re asking is to be treated like humans. Don’t touch us without our permission. Don’t comment on our looks. Simply put — keep your hands to yourself and don’t be an asshole.
There’s an interesting part of this confession that deviates from the stories that have been sent in before — this woman is convinced that “90% of married men would cheat, if given the opportunity.”
We’ve all heard stories and seen memes of married men in the city taking 20-something year olds to Cipriani, but what is the amount of men who actually cheat?
According to brides.com (ironic source, I know), it was reported that 20% of men cheat on their wives, and 13% of women cheat on their husbands.
If you want me to do the math for you… 20% equates to 1 in 5 men. And that’s just the ones who admit to it. I wonder what that number looks like for men in finance, venture capital, or tech, even.
Cheating can be traced back to people having high stress jobs or feeling unfulfilled, or it could just be that humans aren’t meant to be monogamous. Still, that’s absolutely not an excuse to treat a female coworker the way the woman in this confession was treated.
I’m not here to theorize or wax poetic. I’m just here to tell you to treat your female coworkers with respect.
Tired of staring at futures on the treadmill at Equinox? Here’s some interesting news that’s not that pedantic:
What Happens to Your Crypto When You Die?
Where do wallets go when people go? Are they inherited? Can I leave my Gemini information and my wallet to my kids in my will? We live in the metaverse now, and cryptocurrency is the name of the game (the dollar is worthless without the gold standard). This article breaks down what’ll happen when you transcend web3.
The 25 Richest Families in America
Who doesn’t love a little bit of wealth porn? I’m looking through this list to find my future ex-husband.
Wall Street Legend Perelman’s Family Trust Tied to Mystery Loans
I love pieces like these… This level of money and wealth is so intriguing to think about. What is happening with this family? It seems complex, and one could only hope that one day there’s going to be a show about it so we all have something to watch.
Speaking of shows about wealth porn and rich families, season three of HBO’s Succession is in full swing, baby! Every week — until this season is over — I’m going to be doing a recap of what went down until HBO notices and casts me as Roman’s next girlfriend. If you don’t like spoilers, don’t read this. Go start watching and catch up with the rest of the world.
Season 3, Episode 3:
Kendall did the press circuit and shouted “fuck the patriarchy!” He then showed up to the Waystar Royco office when Shiv was addressing the cruise situation to the entire company and fucked Shiv’s speech up by blasting the song “Rape Me,” by Nirvana.
Shiv, in retaliation, sent out an open letter about Kendall’s mental health and history with women, despite calling Logan out for leaking similar information to the press in an earlier season.
Roman did an interview to humanize Logan and used one of Connor’s childhood memories with their father as his own. He didn’t sign the letter Shiv sent out. He still loves his brother. What a king.
Connor is Connor. He said his signature is real estate and wouldn’t sign the open letter either. Not very fitting for a future president to do something like that, anyways.
Where’s Willa? I miss her.
Tom gets told by a friend who is a lawyer that he will likely go to prison. He frames this to Logan by him being willing to take the fall (if he’s lucky, he’ll get the Martha Stewart treatment). During an attempt to throw an event and retain advertisers during the great coupe that’s been unfolding, he has to tell said advertisers that there’s a bit of an FBI raid happening at Waystar HQ.
Greg assumed Kendall would buy him a $40k watch as a sign of loyalty. When Tom told him to come over, he said no (because of the watch?). Tom ended up telling Greg that he’d just buy him a watch if that was all his loyalty was worth. Greg ended up going to Kendall’s, got pressured into buying the watch that ended up not working, and learned about what it means to hang out with trust fund babies. Sometimes it’s not so nice being Switzerland.
Gerri actually tries to act as CEO and get deals done despite the title being given to her in the form of virtue signaling.
I wonder if the kid that Kendall killed during Shiv’s wedding will come up at all. I also wonder if Kendall’s relationship with Naomi Pierce will play into what he’s trying to do with the future of Waystar Royco. I’d love to see a proper therapy session play out with each of the characters — not the shit that Logan put together to try and unite the family.
