Now days women are getting jobs that they never would have gotten years ago. They are politicians, EMT personnel, lawyers, firefighters, police officers and military personnel. Overall, this is wonderful. Women should have all the same rights as men do.
However, there are some jobs that I personally do not feel that women should be allowed to do. There are some jobs that require the intimidation of a man. Two of these are law enforcement and the military (specifically those who are engaged in combat). In a perfect world we wouldn’t need intimidating people in these positions, but unfortunately we don’t live in a peace loving world.
As a woman, I can honestly say that I am much less intimidated by a woman than by a man. If I am not intimidated by a woman, then why on earth would a man be?
Driving down the highway yesterday, I watched as a female state patrol officer climbed out of her vehicle to approach another car. Not only do I feel that it was incredibly unwise for her to be alone, but it’s also unwise to have a woman in that position in the first place. A simple traffic stop could easily (and has many times) turn into a physical altercation or shoot out.
I’m not against women’s rights. I am a woman. But, I feel that there are some jobs that a woman simply should not do. Both law enforcement and the military (those in combat) need someone who is a threat to the enemy.
Unfortunately, when a woman is seen in that position, she is immediately viewed as weak. That’s nothing against her personally. It’s merely the natural view of a female. Again, I’m all for women’s rights, but I do feel that there should be limits in place.
To be fair, there are many jobs a man shouldn’t do also. In my opinion, child daycare centers is one of them. This opinion is based off my own personal experiences. I admit that some men are wonderful with children, even better than women at times and my opinion is unfair to the good men out there. Unfortunately, a bad apple can sometimes ruin the tree.
So, what do you think? Are there certain jobs that only certain people should do?
