So… I was talking to my friend the other day and we were talking about female bosses… And women in the military… I’ve heard this often that “the women are even worse than the men” to me this proves that women are often questioned whether or not they are suitable for a powerful or authoritative job, they even feel that they have to prove themselves to their male colleagues so they will be respected and taken seriously….
So we either don’t make it to the top or we have to be “ice queen bitches?” Are those our only options
Has anyone seen queer as folk???
Can anyone tell me WHY lesbians are depicted as these women who are fun ruiners and that they are downright BORING.
This is something that has happened in straight tv shows for as long as I can remember, now it’s happening in the gay ones too? Since when do men also run the gay community??
This is pretty upsetting to say the least. I was also at a gay bar the other night and this male nurse was talking about how women aren’t being recruited for jobs anymore??? EXCUSE ME SIR!! There is a gap in women in engineering, auto repair, carpentry, anything to do with math and science and ANYTHING outside of what is seen to be a nurturing supportive role
Can anyone else name jobs that are still mostly dominated by males?
It seems in my academic career that I have reached a problematic subject. I am taking “African-American perspectives on crime” my class is taught by a black male and the whole class is about black masculinity and how black men are unfairly tried in the judicial system (which is of course a problem) HOWEVER, black women are almost never talked about and if women are even INCLUDED in the discussions, in the films we watch they are sexual objects, in domestic positions, or called a bitch or a hoe.
My professor even said that if a woman lets a man call her a “bitch” or a “ho” then there is nothing that can be done about that.
He also glorifies male athletes…. which considering there is a gap of women in sports is something that leaves women out ENTIRELY.
Any feminist voices with other opinions about this subject? I am also looking for a feminist analysis of the popular tv show “The Boondocks” I would prefer to have a black feminist opinion, simply because there is both race and gender present in this issue.
Warning: this by no means directed at all white men in the United States, or anywhere for that matter
HOWEVER, I believe that at times this is the hardest group to get through to because they don’t know what oppression feels like; unless they have been poor, but they otherwise haven’t been faced with people of the opposite gender harassing them, structural racial oppression, or police brutality
