You Don't Have To Call Me Darling, Darling


For years, those who work at the English National Opera have called each other "darling." But now they've been warned against using it. A new code of conduct says some may view the term as sexual harassment. "Whilst it may be acceptable between friends, it would be thought of very differently if the term is used by a senior colleague and accompanied by a wink," said a spokesman. The policy also warns against "offensive" flirtation.
