They are. So why do you assume people assume that?
If they do theyre fcking idiots
id guess its because some people believe them to be too weak or emotional although for some that may be true it is not for all
Didn't realize they did. I don't.
It's the whole 'men rule everything and are better' thing. Why we can't all be equal, i don't know...
As for firefighters, it's hard physical work. Men have an easier time aquiring muscle than women.
I think people who assume such things are in the minority. That's pretty damned old fashion.
I think the barrier keeping women from being cops or firefighters was broken long ago. In San Francisco a small Vietnamese women was appointed as Chief of Police a few years ago. I don't know about firefighters but if people think a woman can' be a cop than they need a reality check. It's not something to argue about , female cops are all over and are here to stay.
They have to stop and pee to do their job.
I work with plenty of female police officers and EMT's. While I haven't seen a female firefighter yet, I know they're out there and the profession has slowly been warming up to the idea.
No idea. Are you assuming that all people assume that? Or just a few people?
take the word "assume" - break it into syllables. **** u *me -
Sorry, but if a person can meet the physical and mental qualifications.of the job, then that's it, as far I'm concerned. I've seen more than a few weak and wimpy males and some darn strong - and strong willed, females.
Never seen where the "ability to urinate standing up" was a job requirement for police or firefighters...so what else is the problem, once we get past the physical and mental requirements?
I've seen plenty while working in the Emergency Room.
My sister in law is a firefighter, and there's at least one woman on many crews now
Well, to be a firefighter at least, you have to be very physically strong, because you have to carry like 100lbs of equipment an sometimes other human beings in extreme heat. Women are not naturally born with as much muscle mass as men but there are exceptions, usually with a lot of hard work. A woman usually has to work extra hard to be as strong as a man just naturally is.
Maybe you should ask why SOME people MIGHT assume, I certainly don't, neither does anyone that I know.
Its not that we think they cant its that we hope they wont,ever met a female cop? Like a male cop except with an extra splash of b****,this is the part where i say im just playing...But im not.
In NY we don't
Not in my world. I belive in total equity and woman can do what ever they want. And we make good police officers and fire fighters.
