This shit comment started it out:
Its a real shame, new occupations dont come up every day, and this one had a chance of being different
This comment demonstrates society's hivemind attitude that everything in life should be changed to accommodate women. This attitude is obviously unquestioned and held as gospel by society.
But thankfully this user brings in some common sense:
Why should the professions change to accomodate women?
Women should change to accomodate the profession.
The same way any man needs to conform to the standards of whatever profession he chooses.
Seriously, people act as if this was an issue with gender discrimination within occupations and blame the patriarchy, but I'm of the strong opinion that this is an issue of women having to learn to adapt[....]
People don't complain about the fact that women don't work in coal mines or on construction sites, either. Why should technical jobs be any different?[...]
At least where I come from there is no technical reason why women shouldn't be engineers. They get the same education and they get highly encouraged to join technical universities and take technical jobs, including special support and scholarships for women only (extremely discriminating against men, in fact)... they just tend to not do it. It's not a problem with the profession, it's about women on average being significantly less interested in hard labour, both physically and mentally.
Whether you like it or not, whether you want to blame society or not, it's the mindset of women that has to change because in many/most developed societies, absolutely nothing is stopping them from an academic or social perspective, regardless how many people use that as an excuse. That mindset needs to change at home.[...]
Seriously, when's the last time a woman's rights groups petitioned to have a female quota in coal mining and garbage collecting?
Women will do anything to obtain value. They want want want it.
