One of my Anonymous posters made the comment that in the past women could be either teachers or nurses or secretaries. That was about it, although I knew an elderly woman who had been a chemist.
My poster also pointed out that in the past smart women had been teachers. Hence, they were good teachers. These days, the smarter women have other fields open to them, so they've left the teaching field, leaving only the stupid and incompetent. And God knows I've seen that, having graduated from a university that was the biggest producers of teachers in my state. I was horrified at the stupidity of the female education students.
And yet, my experience has been women aren't very good in men's fields. Management? Give me a break. Most are horrible. I've mentioned before I've had women insist on me training them, because they wanted nothing to do with the women there. Technically, this might be considered "teaching," but it was also management, because the incompetent women were hired by a female manager - and she was the one what fucked up everything, which I had to fix.
I guess some women thought men had such a wonderful life working that wanted to imitate us. Of course, that means easy, indoor, high-paying jobs. It doesn't mean cab driver or coal miner or logger or carpenter.
And yet, when women move into men's fields (which makes them make-work jobs) and make money, suddenly so many men become unattractive to them, so marriage and birth go down, and the number of hostile crazy cat ladies goes up. To these women, it's men fault this happened to them.
Unfortunately, with women flooding fields for which they are not suited, men have to support their sorry asses - and any man who is honest about this will tell you it is true. And overall wages are forced down, making it impossible for one man to support a family. So it takes two, the kids go to a daycare center and bad public schools, and society collapses more.
Historically women have been nurturers, and in the long run that's what they'll be again. And it will be a better world.
Ask yourself this: what happens when women stop being nurturers? Answer: look around.
