Asa made an insensitive comment cheering to Omid's "big" nose before I arrived. I completely understand how that could come across as offensive or insulting. Even though Asa meant it in a good way, Omid deserves an explanation and apology. However, I think GG's response is absolutely uncalled for. Women should never degrade each other to such a despicable low as to call one another a "transvestite." GG should have more respect for her fellow women than to stoop to such a low level. Even if Asa has offended and upset her with her comments towards Omid, there are much classier, more lady-like ways to handle your problems.
After this dinner, I’m not so sure I ever want to see some of these people again. I may not have a lot of Persian friends, but suddenly I am thankful for that!
