I agree. Contact HR ... it's called "Hostile Work Environment" and it's illegal and actionable in civil court. (EVERYONE should be sure to keep a personal daily journal of work activities. You have no idea how useful it is in doing one's job or, when it gets bad, in court!!)

Who cares if it's a disease or an illness? That is so not the point. OP'S coworker is a major fucking asshole who needs sensitivity training asap. Maybe even a verbal warning/write up.

No, disease does not insinuate that it is contagious. Nowhere in the definition of disease does it even say the word contagious (one minute Google search). It does, however, show that "illness" is a synonym of the word disease. Diseases have to do with functions and is not just a result of a physical injury.

So, cancer isn't a disease because it's not contagious??? Y'know, just a little bit of thought should precede one's pontifications ... lest one be thought to be mindless.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1299105/ it's actually interesting. I would have classified disease as such things as bacterial or viral based, or else physically based. As it turns out...technically I'm wrong. it can be classified as a disease, it can be classified as mental illness/disorder. while im glad I've learned something today, I don't think that whether it's a disease or mental illness affects the horrible bosses actions.

Haha - that would be funny, but he could then report OP for sexual harassment. Best just to go to HR. Inexcusable. Where are your colleagues in this? Are they not standing up for you? Take care OP!

I suggest reporting him to whomever is in charge of him. Doing shit like that is downright awful.
