Like the subject and can't get anywhere without a degree in the field of science. I also want to avoid getting a real job for as long as possible as the real world sucks.

Why do you think almost all nurses are female everywhere in the world? And even other similar jobs like animal shelters or sanctuaries, there are very few men doing them.

Well funny thing actually, I'm scrapping my unconditional place tomorrow at University of Manchester and instead, I am going into the merchant navy. I realised that the biosciences are dead end, high unemployment zone and that it wasn't worth spending 4 years studying in that area of study. My reason to go to university was to develop my employability skills to try and get a job in the pharmaceutical industry in research. Then realised employment chances suck because too many people do it. I'll instead be joining the merchant navy in January as a cadet, have all my training paid for, get proper experience on naval vessels, get a growing training allowance each year and will likely get a job at the end starting off at £27-£30K. To think, I was ignoring this for years and all of my Dad's advice. I got lucky actually because I would have started university last year were it not for invasive surgery so thank you invasive surgery.

Well 10% of nurses are men now so its improving for sure. I think its a silly stereotype that stops men from going into caring professions really and some people still stigmatise them as being "women-only" jobs.

To keep up with the competition for the jobs I want, not just a degree but skills I learn, roles of responsibility etc.

Oh, ok. So nothing to do with women being the nurturing gender for the entire human history in every culture and for millions of years of our pre-sapiens stage and the fact that literally all of the thousands of species of mammals exhibit exactly the same behaviour?

Men can also have those nurturing/caring qualities but people stigmatise that to be unmanly and only a womans jobs and the like.

Yes, I know some of that goes on. But is there anything brain or hormonal related that is inherent in the sexes that could contribute to women being the vast majority of workers in nurturing/caring professions?
