I was going to comment about something but I’m going to do this here on my own space instead. A friend of mine just posted something calling a man a wuss for letting a woman who works for a AAA type organization change his tire.
I may have a lot of feelings about men being demonized or made to feel lesser for women doing things that are their jobs. This says that this is something a man *should* be doing instead of a woman. If a woman is doing it, it doesn’t make that woman a badass. It means that she was doing her job. She was being paid to change your tire and she was changing your tire. TA DA. Not special. Just because you’re a man and she’s a woman doesn’t make one of you lesser or greater. It means one of you is patronizing a service.
I know how to change a tire but I choose to have AAA do it because I pay for the service and I don’t want to do it. Some people don’t know how to change tires. Whatever the reason, can’t we all just do our jobs, be paid for them fairly, and not have sex/gender/etc be an issue?
Getting off my soapbox now.
