Gender roles is a big one too.

So many times the argument has come up that now women are 'liberated' they're free from gender roles.

Ask them why they arent being garbage collectors, brick layers, sanitation engineers, etc. What do you get?

"Oh that's mens' work."

Same goes with the "Men should get married, have kids and look after their wife/kids/family/community."

It's a gender role. I always say that since they've been freed from their gender roles - under the auspices of 'equality' then that cuts both ways - men are free from their gender roles. Especially those that involve putting up with shit from women and subsidizing their lifestyles.

I haven't tried it. But I'm willing to bet most men would say the same about the job bei ng below them. Shit, you can't even find men who'll work trades. It's all IT and other blue collar professional jobs. People in general don't want to work hard and sweat.

I think it's because as a culture hard working people are jokes in media. (Construction workers cat calling all the time, plumbers being super fat with their ass crack hanging out etc). We've been told by our parents to go to college to get a good job. The implication being that trades and hard work is for losers and it's a bad job.

If people knew how much it pays to do that work I bet there'd be more people doing it. But the powers that be want the funnel kids through college instead.

As a woman who embraces equality, I agree. Also, in college I worked as a third shift janitor in a diseal engine factory. So, check and mate. I also have no problem with women being drafted, as long as there is a system in place to protect two parents from the same household being drafted at the same time. We can't gut out families for the sake of equality.

They don't want any of the shit that goes along with true equal rights.

Just look at how hard they flipped shit when women were added to the draft.

I came in here to say this. There is almost a stigma against male teachers outside of sports coaching or college professors.

Before I went back to school to be a laboratory tech, I considered going back to teach kindergarten. Young children having a strong male role model, even if it's only briefly would definitely benefit them. I decided against it due to my impression that i'd be walking on eggshells all the time, and I would be perceived as a some sort of predator.

Not almost. There is a stigma. Any man teaching young children in the West is now automatically put in a "possible pedo" box. No wonder there's a teaching crisis.

And it's actually incredibly important for boys to have male teachers. My favorite teacher was the first male I had, in fifth grade, and a lot of my friends have similar experiences. You don't realize that there's a better, more natural-feeling way to learn when you've grown up having nothing but female teachers.

That's because third wave feminism has gone full Animal Farm and wants more equality for everybody.

Men are studying nursing. Also there's not many people complaining about the lack of male nurses.

Exactly. Because it doesn't matter.

Men are studying nursing.

Because nothing is holding them back from doing so. It just doesn't appeal to most men. The same goes for women in tech. Nothing is holding them back. Just because there aren't many females doesn't mean there is a problem and it needs to be forced.

Id argue that women tend to be nurses because its a job that requires nurturing skills that are more common in females. Its the same reason men are dominant by numbers in the military.

The make up about 1/4 nurses in my area. Not a 1/1 ratio, obvs, but they're hardly as rare as people make it out to be.

There's plenty of male nurses. They are quite common these days.

I heard this one from a Doctor mate of mine: "What's the hardest part about being a male nurse? Telling your parents you are gay."

I chuckle, but the stigma is real. Though some of the best nurses I worked with were blokes.

The goal has never been to empower women. The goals are to disempower families and also lower the cost of labor. Getting women into a workforce increases competition among workers and lowers wage expectation. It breaks down families as women become dependent on employers and government assistance and get rid of reliance on husbands and fathers. Men are expected to become peaceful tax slaves, (no explanation has ever been offered what incentive men will have when building a safe world for their children no longer exists except "soma"). We are quickly approaching the demarcation point where incentive to build and support civilization ends and the incentive to destroy everyone and everything begins.

Because they don't actually care about diversity.
