I have been working in company Z for a year now. I get along very well with most of my coworkers except for one who is sexist. This coworker is older than me and has been working for the company for longer than me.
He would make very inappropriate jokes about how females look. Jokes about "trigger" and "snowflakes". Always talk to me in a patronizing way and act like I'm basically stupid.
Thankful, I don't have to work with him often. I work on multiple projects at the same time and he works only on one.
Since working with him is really not nice, I usually avoid the situation by deprioritizing his project and doing other ones first instead.
This technique is doing fine for now, but I don't think I will be able to avoid working on his project forever.
Is there a way I can officially refuse to work with him? (without me getting fired)
He is so insensitive and not nice. Every time I talk with him, I need 30 minutes or more to calm down afterwards.
