When a woman comes in a doctors office and complains about a pain in her penis, would you really expect her to be treated the same way as a man would have been?
of course it is, and of course they are treated differently. thats because we are all different, and being treated the same would be insulting.
not me. We are all unique and nobody is a machine. Equality is BS that communists tried to achieve, and we all know how well that worked out. The only thing that should be equal is opportunity, and in my company it is.
Depending on the complaint.
Well that's the kind of thing I meant. Complaints are often treated differently in situations such as those.
Yes, I know for a fact they are. If you don't believe me test it out. Go tot he store, buy something, open it, bring it back with some complaint. 9 times out of ten the employee doing the return (esp if they're male) will get annoyed and try to get it over with asap. If the customer is male and the employee is male they usually offer more help and try to ensure satisfaction. Why? Women are seen as emotional, nitpicky, and hard to please. Men are seen as decisive, sensible, and easy to please. This is no more evident than in politics. A politician who takes charge, stands up to opposition, and is passionate, if Male they are seen as a "bold, strong willed, and effective leader." If they are female, they are seen as "Bossy, bullying, and overemotional."
yeah, because men are taught never to ask for help, and women are taught to be decoration or out of the way. I can change a tire, but I've never had to, I've literally had the tire iron yanked out of my hand because "I'd do it wrong." So yeah, men may get razzed on, but women end up feeling frustrated and angry because men view them as helpless.
Obviously you've never known any real cooks, in the food industry literally more than half probably close 75% of professional cooks and chefs are male. It's funny, they told women to stay in the kitchen, then when they try to get into a kitchen to cook professionally, they're told go home. Despite the fact that men are stereotyped as idiots when it comes to kids, the issue is women are stereotyped far more and with far reaching consequences. I'm sorry, but a woman getting annoyed with a guy for cleaning is not the same as a man getting mad at a woman for "getting in his way" while changing a tire.
Gnatfree, I don't think there is a differance in telling anyone they can't do something right just because they are one gender or the other....you may be biased against men, possibly?
"and women dominate education and nursing, libraries, secretarial pools and dozens of other places. " Gee perhaps because those were typically FEMALE JOBS for decades? "I think everyone knows that men are the best chefs in general," Your sexism is showing dude. " I don't see where this conspiracy is that you insinuate in the food industry." It's not a conspiracy it's sexist attitudes that women can't handle a real kitchen, you even did the exact same thing, "that seems to be because in a fast paced and demanding kitchen men tend to make the most capable workers. " You're assuming, have you ever worked in the restaurant industry? A lot? No? Then you don't know what I'm talking about. "more often than not they don't go into the top jobs for some reason related to wanting a home life" Yeah, because women have been pushed to believe they can either have a career or family, my mother caught a hell of a lot of flack for working while I was a child, so don't you dare tell me all women 'want to be moms or desire less stress'. "Unlike the hospital, where male nurses are shoved down by female supervisors" Oh good, maybe then they'll realize that's what happens to women all the time, suck it up we've dealt with men slapping us down for centuries. Parents tell their little girl to stop playing int he mud, they tell them to not rough house or wrestle, they tell them to act like ladies. I was skateboarding once, and a little girl asked me if it was hard, I said only at first and you know what she told me, "Mommy says girls can't skateboard. Tommy, when you state that it's hard for a male nurse because he has to fight the fact that it's typically considered a female profession, did it ever occur to you that EVERY job was once considered, A "Man's job"?
Depending on the circumstances.
