Sitting in Washington Dulles, dropping in on one side of a phone conversation happening next to me

Sitting in Washington Dulles, dropping in on one side of a phone conversation happening next to me. One guy talking to another about his misogyny at work.
Guy on Phone: "No, but it’s super misogynistic, dude. Really."
Guy on Phone: "No. I mean, you don’t have to think of everyone that way, bro. I’m just trying to be your friend because people are going to start to notice."
Guy on Phone: "I’m not saying you have to be best friends…it’s not like you have to be…overly friendly. But a simple hello? Just being…cordial? Like…you appreciate her as a person…and her contributions? Like you’re not ignoring her? It’s mean."
Guy on Phone: "Please. You went to public school half your life. You can’t keep blaming everything on being a sheltered NHA kid."
Guy on Phone: "I think you flatter yourself. Not everything is the Emily Debacle of 2015."
Two things. 1.) I want to give this guy on the phone a medal. And, 2.) I want to meet this ‘Emily’ character and hear all about the debacle of 2015.

      Emily - Whichever week in 2015 seems most suiting... because you might have to add "of 2015" to the film title somehow just to make this guy have to go see it XD

    I'm always floored by people who have personal conversations on the phone in public spaces like airport gates where others are around and obviously listening. Even if I'm not giving out state secrets, I still don't want to be live-casting when on the phone.

      I should. He seems really sincere. And even though I'm not hearing the other side, his friend seems really sincere, too. Misogynistic by virtue of being terrified of women, it sounds like. I honestly wish him well :)
