Top Positions, Demanding Jobs Not For Women- Man Lectures Female Colleagues by freakyamanda(f): 11:27am On May 09, 2018
A man (name withheld) spent his Tuesday morning lecturing some of his female colleagues about how nature puts women at a disadvantage in the workplace, and advising them to steer clear of top positions and demanding jobs. Instead, he encouraged women to focus on getting married, raising a family and doing less demanding jobs outside of the boardroom, like trading, fashion designing, nursing and teaching.

Read his statement below:

“A man is more suited for hard jobs, emotionally and physically stressful jobs. Check out some of the women in top positions, there are two things. First, it is either they have connections that make it easy for them or they’ve made some sacrifices in the homefront, which might not be palatable.

“The truth is this, a job like teaching is a good job for women. It is not gender discrimination, it is division of labour. Women are unfit to do certain jobs. Within industries, they work in Admin and Human Resource units but rarely in operations.

“Women should leave companies that are not flexible, why should companies be restructured because of women? A company that is growing and transitioning fast may not be a good fit for women. It is not anybody’s fault, it is the way the society is. Labour laws in general are unfriendly and need to be overhauled, not just for women, but for all workers. It is tougher on women. Women that want to survive in workplaces will have to postpone giving birth or marriage, but you can’t eat your cake and have it.

“There are women that resigned from banks, got married to wonderful men, started trading and buying clothes from Dubai. Did they die?

“I don’t believe women are oppressed, they are the ones who oppress men every day and yet they claim victims. They manipulate men every day.

“There is nothing like sexism, it is just normal, there can never be gender equality, it is unreal and fictitious. People like Chimamanda are trying to ruin things for women, making them feel they can be anything they want to be”. Remember that men cannot breastfeed, so the sole responsibility of taking care of children still lie on the women.

“In the workplace, a woman cannot compete with a man that has 24hours to hustle, if she tries, she will get pregnant along the way. It is just nature that puts her at a disadvantage, not the society. Simple! It is the woman that will go home, the woman will stay at work. It is about survival of the fittest, a man is best fit to be out there, a woman should stay at home and take care of her children.

“It is not about women’s intellectual capacity, they may be smarter but they cannot cope”.

“Men are meant to be heroes, women are meant to be innocent. Women are meant to be beautiful, men are meant to be powerful”, he concluded.

His view is incosequential.Everyone claims to know the truth.
We have had women who have excelled in those fields even if they may be few.
Nobody should force or discourage a woman into or from entering such fields.The opinion of others do not matter what matters is your determination and belief in yourself.
His view would not change the view of some women who are interested in such careers or positions.He should stop the gender stereotyping.

This generation women are some naturally selfish creations..When it comes to responsibilities that will take money out of their pocket, they remind us they are women...but when it comes to responsibilities that will put money in their pocket, they want gender equality.

His views, no matter how politically incorrect they are, hold some level of truth. Yes, women are capable of attaining the highest levels pf their career without any help, but a lot of them have risen to top positions because of their connections or favours that they have returned in kind, likewise some men.

The man made a very apt argument.

There are some jobs not just suitable for women, no matter how you want to lie to yourself. even the people who will dispute this are just being politically correct cause of the society.

Even the women knows this but why they allowed themselves to be lied to is what i don't know. simply put any job that is not mental demanding is not meant for a woman except feminist want to lie to you.

i know you will tel me about those women doing construction site labourers but the truth is after doing such work can you still call them fellow women after all that muscle build? one answer NO. so just breed and find a mental job you can do capisce.

In the structure of the earth and the universe at large there is balance and sometimes balance entails that there is more of a thing and less of another. The level of oil you put in a soup is not the level of salt.

Women were never made to be equal to men. That's the balance nature has created.

Women were meant to play supportive roles not compete.

Even in the business world, venture capitalists tend to favor male startups to female startups as high as a rate of 97% to 3%

Women should stay in there lane and make the most out of it. It is not condescending but just how it is

He's right.

Men are naturally stonger than women.

This shouldn't be a debate.

Weak and irresponsible men gave rise to this feminism rubbish.

It's all plain and white, women are not designed for some roles just as men are not designed for some.

Let both sexes embrace their uniqueness and play their roles accordingly.

How about if they truly want "Gender equality", lets start with giving women the same treatment we give men in the society and work place, i.e, no leniency, no lthing like "violence against women" (You hit me first, I beat the hell out of you and nothing happens).
I'm pretty sure the world wouldn't want such, it will bend the world out of balance.

women women women.
Where is this lady that keeps talking of being a feminist working. Come defend Una selves oo.

Okay now, I want to say is that, there are even some churches that women don't go to the alter. There are some churches women don't go during their menstrual period. If a woman goes there, they find out she is dismissed from the church forever.
It's not even in the society, or work place it's also in religion. Even jesus shunned his mother during the wedding.

You people are just supporters nothing more. That doesn't mean you can't be rich.

I think the way of delivering a message makes it unpalatable.

The reality like he said is woman are at a disadvantage compared to men when it comes to "having it all" i.e family and career.

Some people do no employ women of child bearing age .This is a bitter truth

Women can get to th top of their careers AND also have family but this is very rare indeed.
Increasingly we see kids who have been raised by housegirls with little connection emotionally to their high flying mothers so there is a price to pay but with discipline ,planning and a supportive spouse the sky is the limit. The problem is whether such supportive spouses do exist commonly

He did not make any sense.

However, my problem is with certain females who believe in gender "pay gap" when they are in less lucrative jobs and want firms to pay them same amount as others (who majority of the time happen to be men). Even when these others have put in more working hours, higher qualification and years of experience. But never fight for same "gender pay gap" in sectors like nursing, truck-driving, plumbing etc

Additionally, where these set of men (like the poster) will be wrong is when they exhibit hypocrisy by asking their wives to contribute to the household and to be working so as not to be classified as a liability. You do not discourage her from being engineer on the rig, yet complain that she does not bring enough money to the table.

If you must choose a path, stay on it. Don't change the goal post in the middle of the game.

Might not be politically correct but then a lot of thing written here that are true. Many women have excelled in their chosen career but most of them sacrificed a whole lot of things to achieve this feat. Its the 21st century where children are left at the mercy of house helps and we wonder why society is morally bankrupt. The choice is a very simple one; succeed in career or succeed at home.

PS: There are indeed few women who have managed to succeed at both fronts. Let every woman choose the life she wants to lead.

I didn't read the post because I know the information the man will pass is based on archaic reasoning. The only jobs which place women at a disadvantage are physically demanding jobs, the ones where human muscle is pitted against machine or meant to work in tandem with them.

Jobs today are designed with weakness in mind hence their heavy focus on mental faculties. Women, trained in the same educational institutions as their male counterparts, can work these professions easily and sometimes better than lazy co-workers in the field.

The only things he [Mr. Archaic] might use against the female gender are monthly periods and an eventual pregnancy; two things which pose no problem in developed nations. When I schooled abroad I heard females could order anti-menstrual tablets and injections over the counter. Abstinence and safe sex protocols are a good counter to getting pregnant.

This is not about feminism, imagine if people say you can't get top job or work in companies cos you are a man? sometimes we men get myopic and don't realize these opinions will affect us, how about when you have a very brilliant daughter and she's told all these cos she's a woman? if a woman is capable for top jobs let her have it, it should be about competence first not gender.
