We’re always scolded that we should be grateful to our “foremother” feminists who paved the way for us in the workplace, but all most of them did was turn offices into sucky boring swear-free non-stop birthday parties and gossip factories littered with cat pictures.
All they talk about is what they ate for breakfast and what they’re having for lunch and what they’re having for dinner and how fat they are.
Work is their hobby. They pick some crappy paying, easy “career” hoping that they’ll get married anyhow and some man will come along and look after them.
And that sounds good to me! Would it have broken my heart if Arnie was a millionaire and I knew I never had to work in some crappy office again and could just write books in between watching judge shows all day? Hell, no! Most women would love to be housewives. They just can’t admit it.
Also, the reason woman “earn less than men” if they do is because they will work for less. Which means the rest of us have to settle for less money too.
A secret meeting and questionnaire recently was circulated here at Molson Coors…..without knowledge of any male staff. The questionnaire focused on what women feel is upsetting to them in the workplace…..the number One complaint was the prolifiration of framed, sexy beer ads showing busty young women serving ice cold beer to men, etc. etc.
All such ads have been REMOVED from our office walls. In their place, are flowery, feminine pastel toned artworks. The new mandate is that sexy ads may be FINE in taverns and bars, but NOT suitable for Head Office.
Yesterday the Globe and Mail listed Molson Coors as a top 100 place to work in Canada.
There was a company celebration event, with everyone receiving a chocolate CUPCAKE.
I am not kidding you.
For the most part, I prefer to work with men than women. Over the years, I have found female-dominated workplaces to be unfocused and ill-managed, consumed by office politics, less competitive and less ambitious, and I have found male-dominated workplaces to be more focused and better-managed, less consumed by office politics, more competitive and more ambitious.
I am not naturally a team player. When I was younger, I rode horses and studied karate — solitary sports. As a journalist, I have been most frequently drawn to subcultures that are dominated by men — from the adult business to the U.S. military. I am more comfortable among men. I would rather be where the boys are — than where they are not.
