I witnessed something that can be called as a gender discrimination and somewhat that could be a part of sexual harassment. So I work at a local sports bar located in Korea Town in Los Angeles and it's been almost 2 weeks since it opened its business. We have tables and booths that customers can sit from young children to elders and also a bar. One day there were three male servers and a female server with 7 tables in the hall of the place and a few people at a bar drinking beer minding on their own and the boss/owner of the place came out of the office and gathered all of us to tell us that since there were three male servers who can do hard works like serving beverage and food, he told the female server to go to the bar and talk to the customers and try to get them fun. Even if he didn't do it intentionally, that act he just did was like a sexism and gender discrimination. He let the males do hardships while the female go and chat with guy customers. Not only she was insulted but also the three of us did.
His way of thinking was that women cannot do any hardships while any male should be able to and men shouldn't talk to male customers just because their sex is the same. It felt like we were not serving food and beer but we were trying to please people who had opposite sex.
