Governor Cuomo supposedly favours Arctic conditions when making public appearances. It’s sufficiently bad that the New York Times once headlined an article, “Going to an Event Featuring Cuomo? Take a Coat, or Maybe a Blanket”.
Keen to avoid the Big Freeze, Ms Nixon’s team emailed organisers to ask that the room be heated to 76F (24C) on Wednesday night.
Strategist Rebecca Katz wrote that working conditions are “notoriously sexist when it comes to room temperature, so we just want to make sure we’re all on the same page here”.
If 76 degrees is sexist against men and 66 degrees is sexist against women, what would be the non-sexist temperature? It’s quite the conundrum.
OR… and I’m going out on a limb here… we could treat people as individuals who may have different preferences in regards to the ambient temperature.
