  • You know, women just can't fucking win...either they're aggressive like me and get called a bitch or they're too nice and get called mary poppins. I've seen plenty of guys with the too nice problem and can't recall ever blaming it on their gender while pounding their heads against the bathroom walls trying to rile them. They'd just say, "Thank you mistress" and smile. Freaks.

    Maybe guys should get to work and make more money to support us in the way we have become accustomed so we wouldn't have to work a

    • Hi hfb,

      I'm always surprised and vaguely flattered when people read my drivil. Coming back this morning, this was a lot less interesting and poorly worded than I remember it being last night.

      The article was written in the tone of offering advise and solutions, but the advise and solutions were tongue in cheek jabs at men. This is satire. I write primarily satire. I'm probably really bad at it but that's what it's at least supposed to be. That what is required of woman, or indeed anyone going into the workplace, is so absurd clearly demonstrates something is wrong. And, for the sake of argument, I showed women as being the sole victem of these politics, but, as you suggest, that's absolutely not the case. It was also my own frustration that prompted this rant.

      "can't recall ever blaming it on their gender while pounding their heads against the bathroom walls trying to rile them" -- actually, non-assertive men are frequently called sissy boys, nancies, etc, and had their heads beat against the bathroom wall. One minor difference -- rather than blaming the gender for being weak, the gender is blamed for not being allowed to be weak. Man or woman, IT or other field, you're working with a bunch of basically well-adjusted psychopaths.

      Oh, and I was kind of hoping you, dear commenter, would have the answers...

      Regards,
