Equality In The Workplace

It is becoming abundantly clear that the feminist mantra of "Equality In The Workplace" is disingenuous at best.  While no one disputes that women should be paid equally for equal work, and that sex discrimination should remain unlawful, the feminist notion of equality is not equal at all.

"Equality" in the feminist context means special deference and treatment.  It means that women can still be spared the most undesirable or dangerous jobs due to chivalry, but still deserve each and every benefit due men.  It means that women can expect to make mistakes and become disciplinary problems without accountability because men are fearful of being falsely accused of gender bias.

Equality in the workplace is a charade and everyone knows it.  The laws even treat women more favorably in the workplace regarding issues of attire, absence for maternity, and for physical qualifications for law enforcement and fire fighters.

How about we all try to strive for equality?  Women would find it more challenging than the status quo for sure, but it would go a long way towards making female employees more valuable and respected among their peers.


  1. Women don't want real "equality". There is no point at all expecting it from them; it's a losing arument

    Also, women (via feminism) define "equality" as meaning matriarchy / gynocentrism / oppression of men.

    So really the whole "equality" issue is a non-runner for men. We're not going to get anywhere with it.

  2. I don't know..I always wanted to work in the oil field with my brother-in-law, but I'm a woman so I can't. It pays well, and I'm not afraid of back breaking labor and/or death on the job.

  3. I don't know where the above poster lives, but in America, women can and DO work in the oil fields. The question is, will you match their strenght and abilities? If not, then I can understand why they would not hire you. Even men who can't keep up will be turned down or fired. It's very physically demanding work.
