Stuff in the news again, makes me sad, angry and wonder exactly how far we have come in the last few decades.
Pictures like this.
If you don’t see the problem, then I’m not sure that anything I can say will help you. One of the many reasons I’m glad RTH and I won’t be responsible for bringing a child into a world with such a screwed up attitude to women.
I’ve blogged before about my mixed feelings on the whole battle of the sexes thing. For a while I was a little more optimistic. Probably 50% of the people sitting the PPL exam with me were female. We had a female intern at dispatch for a while, maybe things were getting better.
But I still don’t see any female flight instructors around and I don’t think any of the other women in my ground school class made it this far. It kinda depresses me a little to be honest.
What depresses me more is that I don’t know what to do about it. I sit here and complain but as my good friend A asked me, what am I doing to fix the situation?
It’s a good question. The answer, sadly, is nothing really.
Even worse, I’ve taken to painting my fingernails. I’m a bit of a sell out really.
