Forget that Wall Street advice about women – just treat us all well

Don Draper: the perfect man?

You are never too old or wise to take advice. Men around the globe should thus have been delighted to see the 'sage' advice from the unofficial Goldman Sachs' 'Guide to Being a Man' believed to have been written by an anonymous insider. I think many women will learn a thing or two – some of it alarming – by reading the advice being doled out from inside this Wall Street mecca of testosterone.

The list of rules includes some fairly derogatory advice. This is not a list pandering to women. This is a list compiled for brash Wall Street males. It urges them to "buy expensive sunglasses. Superficial? Yes, but so are the women judging you". Harsh.

Then there is the even more insulting: "Hookers aren't cool and, remember, the free ones are a lot more expensive." Ouch!
