Of us and men

It took me all 6 seasons of  ”Sex and the city”, seen twice (+the movie) to get a job. It couldn’t have been a better timing: I don’t think I could bring myself to see it all over again. This blog is about something else though. It’s about us versus men, in a nutshell.

I say “us”, referring to women, with a purpose. The thing is, for quite some time now, I have gradually grown to view myself in the other camp. I guess it’s because I have tendencies to get interested in primarily male-dominated areas like football, poker and blogging. I thus seldom find much understanding and enthusiasm from my fellow females, who’d share my passions. Men, on the other hand, have always been utterly supportive and encouraging. As a result, I lost some of the respect and loyalty for women, and came to strongly believe that I’d best be surrounded by men in the professional situation.

This conviction has recently been shattered to its core. Despite all their admiration and high regard, no men (who constituted 99% of my contacts) hired me. But women did.

I think I know where I stand now. It feels right too.
