Regarding sex bigotry

You know, I read a lot about “women who are treated unfairly in business”, or who are treated as secondary citizens because they are females (in the western world).

Well, I have never felt this way in my work environment. Not in Greece, not in Germany, not in UK, not in France and not in USA. I don’t know if I am lucky, or I behave too much… like a man, or simply some women need to get a clue about their own failures.

The only bigotry I have encountered towards women is that of my own father. A heavy traditionalist in an rural, isolated part of Greece, I wouldn’t expect otherwise (it even feels natural to be honest). And I always defied him anyway.

I don’t claim that there are no such problems in the western world, it’s just that all these years that I lived and worked in several countries, I never encountered any. I guess, I give the immediate impression that I would kick some asses if I was to be treated differently, so no one bothered to do so. ;-)

EUGENIA, OF COURSE YOU HAVE NEVER LABORED UNDER SEXUAL DISCRIMINATION. FIRST, YOU ARE SUCH A STRONG PERSON, NO MALE WOULD DEFY YOU IF HE WEREN’T CERTAIN HE WAS RIGHT. SECOND, YOU WORK IN AN AREA (COMPUTERS AND GRAPHICS) WHERE MALE CHARACTERISTICS (THE LOGIC OF COMPUTERS) IS BALANCED BY FEMALE CHARACTERISTICS (THE ARTISTIC ASPECTS OF COMPUTER GRAPHICS).


This is the admin speaking...

I think you have a point. I think of the kid who is picked on in school. Often he/she is sending major signals “Kick Me” by body posture, facial expressions, etc. I’ve never met you, but I’m sure that is not the signal you are sending.
