'I can’t be the only male community nurse who gets to read the gas meter'


Oh Boo-hoo! Gender bias is not new, just attended to with more seriousness when a man complains about it. You are treated differently, assumed you can't do the job properly. Nothing women haven't been experiencing for millenia. The thing that bothers me most is the way my female coworkers treat my male coworkers: males are asked for their opinions more frequently, flirted with, laughed at as if they just told the funniest joke ever, and generally it turns into junior high when the men come around rather than the university department it is.
