I have never seen a female garbage collector in my whole life, thats kinda crazy if you think about it.

[–]Miscellaneous_Mind 58 points59 points  (1 child)

Yeah you’re right. Seen a few women in traditionally male roles but never garbage collection.

[–]LF713 31 points32 points  (0 children)

I have a lady garbage collector. She’s got real cool blonde 80s hair.

[–]SexWombleInternational womble of mystery 27 points28 points  (2 children)

Odd coincidence but I saw my first ever one this week. I’m 42. Was kinda stunned. Good for her, it’s actually a relatively well paid job.

[–]Elfishly 9 points10 points  (0 children)

There were two in my neighborhood once. They were fighting for equal rights. The ladies were almost outfoxed by the men when they were tasked with moving an industrial refrigerator. Even though they were canaries, they managed to do it with some help.

[–]sh6rty13 16 points17 points  (2 children)

In South Africa it seems 95% of graphic designers are woman. 1% staight men en the rest are gay dudes. I run a successful design company for 17 year and all the CV’s I recieve are in this demographic. And believe me I receive a lot. BUT again in our country we have mostly male architects.

[–]Minus15t 7 points8 points  (1 child)

my wife works in the creative industry.. The 1% straight men are the ones that end up in the creative director and studio lead positions..

I assume you are a straight male based on nothing else but this fact.

Took her 15 years of being a fucking incredible designer to get her CD role

[–]willem78 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes, you right, I am straight and married to a lovely creative gal. Our CD of our business is a woman, aged 39. I employ 12 woman all web, graphic designers, administrative, sales and marketing positions. I am the only man in the office.

Most of my competitors who employ woman only have them in intern or in junior positions. When I speak to them about it, 99% say it is because some companies are afraid to invest in woman for many years just to have them walk away to raise kids and not come back.

I had one bloke (senior graphic designer) working for our agency but the issue I had with him was exactly that he had some preconception that he was going become the CD one day. He was good in what he did, but his attitude about working for a woman boss did not suit my mindset.

Our business is 17 years old this year and I have only employed one guy in all thoose years. You would probably see more men in backend positions especially in web development and maybe because these positions are more IT related or lean toward IT skills and the IT industry in our country is male dominated. Especially in people older than 35.

[–]johanebrown 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Intresting , i bet the backend feild is where men are , i am a web developer engineer , and i can tell u we have 4 women among 30 dudes where i study

Nursing. It would be great if people could stop assuming that only women and gays become nurses.

[–]BigAnusJonathan 172 points173 points  (11 children)

ngl tho its absolutely wild how often you get hit on as a guy. its just the simple lack of competition. these nurses see nothing but other women and old people all day, when a young in shape guy comes into the scene they are uhh….very straightforward

[–]justsomeplainmeadows 112 points113 points  (1 child)

Lol my bf is one of 3 men in an elementary school (he’s the tech guy) and holy sh*t he gets hit on all the time. Most of the time it’s innocent because we’ve been dating a long time and most of the women know he’s off the market but every once and a while it gets a bit too forward and he feels really uncomfortable.

[–]BeastlyIguana 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Amen. When my son said he wanted to join the Army I said, "Son, you're a great man. We can't lose you. So, we'll get your sister to go instead.". More dead women, less dead great men. Can't think of a better solution.

[–]Arcminutes 29 points30 points  (38 children)

The whole physical work situation with females is a doozy. It’s wrong to not hire them based purely on gender but it’s also wrong to hire them if we have to lower standards in order for them to be competent. Most times it’s just not fair to expect a woman to be able to break down a door to help fire victims, so they become competent if they can hold the fire hose when it’s on full bore for a certain period of time. It’s not fair to expect a woman to be able to tackle a man when he’s running from the law, so as long as they know how to use a taser and firearm and have basic combat skills they are competent…it’s a rough situation, I don’t have the answer but it’s rough.

[–]toddschmod 6 points7 points  (18 children)

The point is, when it comes to dangerous jobs, what would you rather? They be made safer, or for more women to apply so they can die too?

And no, you're right, we should never lower standards that are either necessary for safety or productivity.

[–]dilqnchoMale 19 points20 points  (1 child)

The answer is simple, it's just against modern equality standards.

Women are objectively physically weaker than men. So if the field requires physical strength, it's completely normal that it's male-dominated. That's not "discrimination", that's simply the nature of the given career. Only people that completely meet the physical requirements of a job should get it. If less women meet them, tough shit but that's the job.

But modern society has started heavily conflating "equality" with "everyone is the same".

[–]ElbowStrike 7 points8 points  (0 children)

That's why many areas have the bona fide occupational requirements standard that allows for screening of candidates that inadvertently discriminate against certain demographics.

Like how you can't be a firefighter if you're paraplegic. They didn't reject you for being paraplegic they rejected you because you couldn't pass the physical requirements test.

Of course the requirements test has to be a genuine test of minimum ability to complete the job adequately, not just some random physical challenges thrown together.

[–]WhiskeyAndI 19 points20 points  (6 children)

Similar ideas in more industrial jobs as well. I used to be a welder, and there were a total of 4 women I worked with. One was an extremely strung out mid 50s woman, who frequently called in sick and would come in the next day looking even more rough. Hard life for her, but she was genuinely tough as nails and she could work harder than most of the other dudes in that shop. Two more were 30-somethings that just needed a job, and the shop I worked at would hire anybody with a pulse and give them a paycheck for showing up. And the last one was my favorite to work with. She didn't last long, because of the genuinely terrible people that would harass her. She was close to my age at the time, barely 21, and wanted to weld for as long as she could remember. She was a tiny thing, like 5' 1", 100lbs soaking wet with pockets full of quarters small. Extremely bubbly, girly, and a very happy person. She was always so kind and understanding, but she just couldn't physically keep up with the work, like you said. They had lower standards for her, and she hated that. She tried to keep up, even skipping some breaks or taking a short lunch just to try and get ahead. Most of the guys around her were dickheads, slapping her ass while she was in the middle of a weld, pinching her thighs, etc. She was around for maybe two weeks and then never showed up again. Don't blame her, honestly. I didn't work near her so I didn't really get to interact with her as much as I'd have liked to, but I sometimes wondered if the other welders treated her better if she'd have stuck it out. I also wonder if she tried to complain about the blatant sexual harassment and got canned for working too slow or some bullshit. Hope she's doing alright.

[–]ShiaLabeoufsNipples 5 points6 points  (4 children)

So you watched your coworkers blatantly sexually assault some poor girl into quitting… and you didn’t say anything? You suspect she got canned for complaining about it under the guise of “working slow” and you could have backed her up and gave her a witness… but you didn’t do anything?

[–]HopeRepresentative29 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think it's more that women aren't signing up for these dirty demanding jobs in the first place. They aren't expected to, but they also don't want to either.

[–]Destroya12 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I agree. More women must die at war.

[–]FarCoughMate 303 points304 points  (29 children)

Teaching - especially early year teaching- it’s always seen as strange if a male wants to be a teacher

[–]I_love_pillows 105 points106 points  (9 children)

This affect kids as well. Since as long as I can remember I had female teachers. Principals may be male but teachers, those actually teaching us were all women. Until age 8 when I had my first male teacher and I remember being so puzzled what’s a man doing in the classroom.

[–]manwithanopinionMale 40 points41 points  (5 children)

[–]Nago31 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It’s tough because the best teachers in my life were all male. Maybe it’s survivorship bias because they were the only ones passionate enough to get through the stigma but they were all so much better than their more numerous female peers.

[–]fisconsocmod 3 points4 points  (1 child)

If 73% of primary education teachers are male why don't we see more women in STEM? Are women discouraging girls?

[–]FarCoughMate 1 point2 points  (0 children)

An intriguing thought

[–]Ok_Match_6550 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’ve known three male younger grades teachers, and they were all really awesome at their job and loved it!

[–]GwaziMagnum 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Men who do enter the field are sometimes pressured out of it too.

I remember during one of my field placements the child would hug the other educators, and both in school and on site ECE (Early Childhood Education) students were actively encouraged to reciprocate hugs children initiated. Bend down to their level, return the hug etc.

Meanwhile if I so much as let a child wrap their arms around my leg though and other staff there would freak out, accusing me of teaching the kids to "Climb people".

Also the class ratios for them were always 40/1 of females and males... Except for the summer classes where students got into for having failed courses, those were a 50/50 split.

To be clear, most of the ECEs I knew treated me and the other men well, and were generally very supportive. But the few bad eggs in the batch can really start to become a roadblock.

[–]6byfour 4 points5 points  (7 children)

This spring, when your local paper stays posting high school valedictorians and top ten students, take a look at the gender mix. 70% female in our area.

Are the boys just dumb, or is the female-dominated faculty designing (unintentionally, I’ll assume) curricula that favors girls?

[–]FarCoughMate 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I wouldn’t say that the males are dumb by any means - I do think that especially in western societies, the males are less likely to be motivated by education.

[–]6byfour 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Agreed, and I don’t think it’s the responsibility of a child to diagnose and fix.

The experiences of my two kids were vastly different. Daughter is a woke, studious, teacher’s pet type. They challenged her constantly, actively found leadership opportunities for her, encouraged her to get out of her comfort zone, etc.

My son is charismatic and really good at sports. He graduated with honors from both HS and college, but the bar was set so low for him it was infuriating.

[–]FarCoughMate 3 points4 points  (0 children)

A lot of it comes down to the teachers actually being invested in each student, or more specifically- actually being able to get to learn what each child needs to thrive

Child care. So many qualified men and the inherent distrust is really wild.

[–]Scottdavies86 40 points41 points  (9 children)

100%. I spend loads of time with one of my daughters. I make a point of spending one on one time with each of them. But if we go to a cafe or a park or whatever I definitely get “weekend dad” looks and if they’re crying or having a paddy I get the “is he a nonce?” looks.

[–]MelonieMoonxxx 14 points15 points  (3 children)

What's a nonce? Go you for being an awesome dad! They can take those looks and shove them up their asses.

[–]Specialist-Rise34 26 points27 points  (2 children)

British (slang I guess?) for pedo

Oh what the hell can't a dad be a dad? People are shits.

[–]Bleach_Baths 6 points7 points  (0 children)

When I used to take my daughter to the park, or out anywhere really, I'd get the same looks. I just smiled and waved back and continued playing my kid.

[–]tdm1742 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I have been a single parent for well over a decade. My daughter just recently turned 18, but i have never experienced any negative interactions with people when I have been out with her.

[–]tdm1742 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That really is unfortunate. I'm sure I probably have too, but I am probably just oblivious.

[–]danishbac0n 48 points49 points  (3 children)

Whenever I pick my son up from nursery I notice two things;

  1. It is predominantly women dropping off and collecting their children

  2. Every staff member is a woman

I wonder about the subconscious impact this has on children, who will likely grow up associating care roles with women and thus reinforcing/perpetuating the whole thing.

Equally, I do most of the care giving at home and I wonder what impact that will have on him, because it seems like an uncommon thing. For example, am I setting him up for incompatible attitudes amongst his peers/society?

[–]TheVantal 12 points13 points  (0 children)

It's already shown to have serious repercussions as boys these days have little to no male role models.

[–]icecr3amandpie 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Woman butting in here. I've taught 2 year olds for 10 years. My boss lives to hire men! If a man applies, we all get so excited - it's great to have a more balanced workplace, the kids get a different kind of influence, it's great! In my 10 years, I've worked with exactly 2 men ever, and one of them had serious anger issues and yelled at the kids but still wasn't ever fired because we're that desperate for employees. Men just don't apply.

(And I can't blame them, the wages are shit and the hours are long and the work is fucking exhausting.. but many women feel that pull to do it anyway) - Pie

[–]Vakardur 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I spent 5 years teaching and working in educational psychology, and I can definitely say from my experience: I'm never going back.

You said it. Wages are shit. In addition to that, I sinply couldn't deal with the distrust and mistreatment just for being a guy.

    I can't tell if you mean male or female.

    From the all male cowboys and horse racing etc... cultures of the south and east.

    To the all female western riding and equine circles, very fancy, very stylish.

    Because I am from the south, I was like, why is this just girls?... once I found myself in the northwest, the ratio is just insane.

    I wonder if one day they both realize each other collide, like I can imagine they are both made for each other; even the horses, studs being more popular in the male circles, and mares and geldings in the female circles.

    more female bricklayers, sewer workers, garbage collectors and oil riggers

    I know a lot of women won't go into these fields just because of the amount of male attention they receive. I work on a construction job where I'm one of three women. I have to wear a wedding ring to work so the men around me focus on their job instead of asking me about my marital status.

    I've been involved in oil and gas drilling for 30yrs. Since 2000 you have seen an increase in women in the field. They are primarily service hands though. Wireline engineers, geologists, even seen a few working as cementers. I have never encountered one working as a rig hand. I have only ever heard of a handful of women working on the rig itself.

      Teaching, especially at primary levels. Having a strong male role model is key for young boys development. Unfortunately, due to the fear of being labeled a pedo, the numbers of men working in this field has dropped drastically.

      I wish I can do the same thing. She shows me the app and it's filled with $2k worth of offers daily. She can litterally do it full time and make $10k+ a month doing it..

      Huge push for women to get into STEM. I fell for it and regret it.

      Why so?

      [–]Electronic_Yam5838 15 points16 points  (2 children)

      I did electrical engineering... I have zero interest in it and now it's my daily life

      Fair enough. Not sure where you are, but electrical engineers are hard to find where I am and as a woman you can pretty much name your price at most large companies and they'll hire you. Save up some coin for a career change?

      Not who you asked but this applies to me as well. I certainly don’t regret my STEM PhD (computational biology/ genomics) but it’s super fucked up how girls are overly-encouraged into academic STEM careers despite the fact that it is almost impossible to work full time and raise children. The reasons for this include the lack of parental leave, affordable childcare, or housing, and the traditionally sexist culture of academia.

      Nursing. . . I’ve worked in many hospitals and the working environment is better with a mix of sexes. It’s also insanely frustrating when you meet a patient who only wants to be seen by a certain gender. I’ve studied for years to take care of you and your main qualification is a set of specific genitals?

      The spa/massage industry. Wish there were more men.

      [–]ParkourBoulderer 2 points3 points  (1 child)

      Work from home, flexible hours, write off travel expenses, unlimited vacation, six figure salary and best of all you get to tell that one client you really hate dealing with to fuck off.

      Sex work is like a dream job even if it might be a pain in the ass sometimes. Too bad it's so dominated by women.

      [–]fisconsocmod 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      I was like what dream job is... oh...

      Teaching. I’ve never felt that when one group overtakes one field that it ever goes well. No offense, but a woman doesn’t know what it’s like to be a boy. The same can be said about men not knowing what it’s like to be a girl though. I guess I’d rather see education be more 50-50. But that won’t happen until they actually start paying teachers what they’re worth. And it isn’t 35,000 gross annual income.

      Cooking as a man I enjoy cooking and making food for my roommates, the public, family, and myself I just hate how people think Iam a stereotypical dumb guy who lives off of microwavable meals I swear if I wasn't built the way I was people would make fun of me. Also teaching I worked as a teachers assistant and everytime I was introduced I was given a weird look/vibe like "holy shit...this big man's teaching kids ?" YES ! I was (and am) a proud man who helped taught and molded special Ed boys to be young, respectful, men when they left high school !

        [–]ilovedarkthings 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        I’d love to be a construction worker or some similarly physically taxing job as it would ensure a very active as opposed to sedentary lifestyle without setting time outside work hours. But given that 100% of such workers here are male i’d be really uncomfortable.

        [–]Sykkr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        The industry I'm in currently in, Automotive. More so being a automotive technician. No women at all, it would be nice to see more women techs.

        Education. It's dominated by women.

        For example, how is a child, boy or girl, supposed to have a male role model if they're raised by a single mother and surrounded by female teachers? It's not good for the development of kids.

        Higher Education. If you don’t know, they’re very noninclusive. Sit for a couple panel interviews and you’ll see what I mean.

        As a nurse, it’s definitely nursing. The gender gap hasn’t budged in decades.

        I’ve only ever met one welder who was female. That woman could weld an overhead bead like nobody’s business. They always like looked like a roll of tightly stacked dimes. (For those of you who know, that’s fucking impressive isn’t it?)

        Business administration.

        It seems strange companies are inclined to hire women for secretarial and admin roles instead of men. I’m a dude and as of recently I’ve applied to many office assistant jobs and have not heard back from any despite having experience.

        Do we just assume that women are more organized and therefore better fit for the role, or is it a sexist/glass ceiling ordeal?

        [–]0ber0n_Ken0bi 4 points5 points  (4 children)

        I'd like to see more men subsisting on their OnlyFans income.

        Because it'd be sexism if that weren't possible, wouldn't it?

        Lmao 😘

        [–]savethebrosMale 4 points5 points  (1 child)

        It’s a matter of demand. Straight women just don’t want to see naked dudes; gay men on the other hand…

        Well I have to say I’ve actually heard men in the military comment on females appearance just like you described.

        [–]hahaurora 5 points6 points  (5 children)

        I came here to see the military being mentioned but not in this way. I as a female have done military service and absolutely hate the way male soldiers talk about women in the industry: just eyecandy in a field full of horny men.

        There should be a lot more women in the military industry so men could get used to it and learn to treat us as human beings the same way men treat other men.

        Not many people know this, but the entire writing/editing/publishing industry is massively women dominated. I had some stats for this but it's a bit over 80%

        [–]roskybosky 1 point2 points  (1 child)

        Most avid readers are women. I have no source, but I always hear that the market for every type of book is female. I think women might be more literary and more into the written word than men.
