It took me a long time to get comfortable with the idea that people behave in profoundly different ways simply because of gender. After all, when you've spent your early adulthood assuming you need to deny those differences to achieve political and social equality, you've got a lot of attitude adjusting to do. I'm ready to come out of the closet on this, though.

The Bay Area chapter of Women in Communications Inc. gave what might be called a Swedish meatball citation to Hal Riney & Partners. At the group's first Leading Change awards luncheon--honoring firms that promote women or portray them positively--Riney got the sole Needing Change award. WICI sent the firm a cheesecake for its "Swedish bikini team" beer ad, which prompted a sexual harassment suit from the brewery's women employees. The Riney firm also was sued.

Regarding Jonathan Gold's column on telecommuting ("Working It Out," Three on the Town, May 1): A telecommuter's employer does know that the employee is working--more so than most employers. Rather than merely filling a chair or punching a time clock, a telecommuter has agreed with the boss to produce a certain amount of work. The quality of that work is then judged on its merit, not by how long it took to execute it. I telecommute because it means integrating work into all of life, rather than relegating it to an eight-hour block under fluorescent lights.
