in a society that we have, even jobs have their own gender. stereotypically speaking, jobs that require extraneous labor are dominated by men. while those that require nurturing and involves an eye to details and arts are perceived to be for women. but as time passed by, with the increasing demand of the market for specific jobs and the lack of it to others and probably even minute societal change, it is safe to say the occupations nowadays, are starting to be gender-neutral. take for example nursing, which was predominantly for women. there is already a large number of male nurses. we also have women laywers and justices who have successfully infiltrated the patriarchal profession. these just to name few.
at work, i can say that we are dominantly males. there are only two women at the very least in a group. in my group, there is only one woman. so often times, she cannot jive into our talks. especially if we are drinking. in a way, i understand her for who woman can, if the cream of the talk is mostly about machismo and sex? although she doesn't talk much or minggle whenever someone ignites the topic of boobs, butts, relationship and sex, i can completely say that i can feel her silent agitation.
our boss is the type of man who easily get distracted whenever a beautiful woman passes by. and it would not pass without him giving a reaction about how he gets a hard on, how he fancies her and how he loves touching and smelling a girl whenever they are near him. well, its just been only a week since we were introduced and working with one another. administratively-wise, i don't have anything against him. though i am not expecting much from him. as long as he will not ask my personal opinion or impression about him, i think we will be able to work well.
rohann is one of my batchmate. he looks younger than his age. but unfortunately, i can say that his mentality and mature level is lower than a newly circumcized teenager. he will not pass giving an irrespectful remark whenever a woman pass his cube. he will whistle to them, give a gasp and even stand in his chair and stare to the poor woman until she disappears in the horizon. there was even a time when he intentionally bump himself towards a girl just to feel her boobs with the excuse that there were so many people passing the same corridor.
until one drinking night, he confessed to us that he has issues being with lesbians because his former wife replaced her for one. everyone felt for him. as if he was the most pitiful being alive. but i felt otherwise. although i know its mean, i think that he deserves it. in the first place, his wife wouldn't replace her with a woman if he have just work their relationship properly and i think i have a good idea what the reason is.
then, we have timothy. he would probably be one of the most arrogant airheads that you'll ever meet. he has this false mindset that if you'll keep on ranting that you're handsome to everyone, the universe will collide and will actually believe on it eventhough you are not. well, probably he haven't heard the line: everything should be in moderation. he treats every women as a display: an object that its only use is to please his carnal desires. when he sees one all he could think of having sex.
he would even boast his experience with a prostitute: that he paid only 1,500 for her. though she is physically worth it. the worst thing was he actually recorded it in his phone.
i am a very patient and understandable person. but if there are things that i could not tolerate those will be people who are sexists and chauvanist pigs. and by now, you'll probably know my impressions toward them. well, let's just hope that my fuse doesn't run out before i resign again.
