At my job, there are a lot of complaints about the workforce and assaults. Mostly, gender discrimination and female-male physical confrontations. I am a believer in gender equality, but there are times when women are hypocrites and I will be the first to admit it. Women demand to be treated like men in all areas. If you do so, then you have to take the good and the bad.
The first issue is:
A man should never put his hands on a woman. Understandable. Then there should be no reason for a woman to put her hands on a man unless she is defending herself or her child. I have heard many complaints coming from women in which the woman claims to have been assaulted. I always ask how the assault occurred or what the reason was for the assault. Most of the time, it was the woman who struck the man first! And what is their reasoning for doing so? Because he was verbally abusive. If you don’t like the way a man is talking to you, walk away or come up with a witty retort. The thing is, if you act like a lady and talk like a lady, you are a lady. But once you start swinging like a man, you are no longer a lady. Once you raise your hands and attempt to strike a male, you will be treated like such. There are no exceptions. A woman cannot say that all I did was slap him or punch him. That men can’t hit women. That’s being a hypocrite. A woman can’t hit a man and get away with it.
The second issue is:
Gender discrimination in the workforce. There are many jobs in which women are just as competent if not better than men. But there are also jobs that women are physically not equipped to handle. Don’t misunderstand me; some women are physically stronger than men. And there are very few of them. Jobs like the Police Department and the Fire Department lower their physical test standards in order to accommodate women. Umm…WHY? There is a reason that those types of jobs have certain requirements. Some women are quick to argue that the only reason she didn’t get the job was because she is a woman. It’s not that you are just a woman, it’s the fact that you a physically weaker than the average male. If the job requires a candidate to drag or carry a dummy that weighs approximately 160lbs, then the only way the candidate can continue on with the rest of the test is for the candidate to drag or carry the 160lbs dummy from point A to point B. If there is an emergency and the Police Department or Fire Department have to respond, the expectation is that the responding officer or fire(wo)man can drag or carry the average human out of danger. You cannot possibly expect a woman below average height to do so. Also, a tiny and petite woman will probably not be able to defend herself against a perp that is bigger and stronger. And you can’t always rely on backup because shit happens.
Certain jobs are just not meant for the average woman. Now if the woman can pass the same physical test the men pass, by all means, enjoy the job. There is a reason why there are no females in NAVY SEALS or Special Forces. They are not physically equipped to be there.
Equality does not mean lowering job standards and when convenient, being a hypocrite by pulling out the I’m a girl card. It means being treated in the same manner as the average person.
