Geraldine Ferraro was the equal of any man until financial proprieties came up--then it was `That`s my husband`s department, I`m just his wife, I don`t know anything about all that hard business stuff.` Hillary Clinton has made a career entirely on who she was married to, and when attacked it was `You`re attacking the man`s wife!` and `Boohoo, my husband cheated on me!`
There is no male equivalent to these dodges. It may not be fair, but until women reject them as excuses and don`t act like some jerk being a pig is the end of the world, they will always be seen as weak and needing an out, which they will use if things get too tough
If a woman becomes unravelled over TALK, maybe women workers need to be tested for emotionalstability.
I have sold Fuller Brush door to door, waitress in restaurant, waitress in bar Nurse in hospital for over a decade and finally a goat herder.
Sheared them, wormed them, deloused them, trimmed their hoofs, and finally skin them with an air compressor and single edge razor blade. Another gal that had a flock taught me how cause she had to figure out a way to skin hers, her husband didn't like skinning them but some had hides too beautiful to put in the ground. Salted them down and then sent to the tanner. Each one of my kids has a beautiful hide that they display..
It was her invention..
Got crap from some one only once, 16 year old candy girl in a movie threatre. Boss followed me into the stock room when I had to refill the candy counter, he grabbed and I slung a large box of candy bars in his gut, open the door and walked out...didn't quit and he didn't fire me...When I found another job, then I quit.
All my girl friends could take care of themselves also and that was way before the stupid feminist even thought of talking back to some male. I always thought the feminists were just plain dumb if they couldn't handle themselves without some man making laws. Like I say, some females have gotten stupid since the feminist movement... Of course my father was a cop and didn't raise his girls to be victims, but no one expected anyone to give them anything either..You worked for what you had... GG
