To the Dear and Cherished Women of Education,
We know that decades of gender-based oppression are behind us. We know that the vast majority of gender-based crimes are against women. And we know that gender-bias still keeps many women under-paid and under-promoted.
But please —…
Oh, my god. Who knew men teachers were so oppressed!? This is really offensive to me. The idea that, because we work in a female-dominated workplace (sorta… I bet you will find the majority of high ranking officials and principals in schools throughout the country are still male, and I am CERTAIN you will find that male teachers, on average, have higher gradated salaries than female teachers… but I could be wrong) female teachers are just runnin’ wild, oppressing men. Not that it even matters if they are, to be honest, I couldn’t care less. I just find it pretty ballsy to tell an entire oppressed group of people that they are “mean” and making you feel like you’re in a hostile work environment. Here’s a hostile work environment for you—my (male) principal just got fired for sexually harassing his predominately female staff.
PS: Maybe if your female coworkers are mean to you, it has less to do with them trying to systemically oppress you, and more to do with you being a jerk.
PPS: Takes the cake that the OP tagged this “sexism.”
