yea I'm not saying that responding to an employee molesting a minority is bad but if you nonconsensually put your face in the crotch of someone who works under you and take photos, your issues go way beyond "not respecting trans identities". yeah the "haha you're a guy, you should be ok with this xD" made it worse cuz it added being a dick about gender to the mix but, y'know, the dude is a sex pest to begin with
if one of your employees molested a black woman at work and went "what? you negress sistaz love that shit" and your answer after refusing to fire the guy for a long time was to give everyone corporate anti-racism lessons that would be goofy too
"the rapist misgendered his victim WE NEED TO ADDRESS THIS" yea he's a rapist. you didn't immediately fire him.
