    It's a bit biased posting on here as most people will have qualifications lol but in general would you say that woman more valued by society, expecially at an older age ,if she has a skilled job say an It specialist or physiotherapist than if she was just a shop assistant? It seems men are more valued but what about women are they respected more/thought any more of?

    I'd rather date a shop assistant than a dentist. Then again, i'd rather date a war criminal than a dentist, at least they have an exciting past.

    How come her skills would be valued less just because she has a vagina?

    You could see a dentist on the side so that you would have a nice smile to impress the war criminal.

    Women make children which is a pretty major thing, so her job makes up a smaller proportion of the respect she gets. All men have is their skills.

    Yea but if a woman doesnt want children (apparantly 1 in 4 or 5 dont bother) then all she has are her skills. Also men have to father the children which is a big job and use of their time so its not fair that they only really get respect for their career.

    And childfree women tend to get less respect. Maybe it's not fair but that's how it is right now

    Of course! My mother is well-educated and has a skilled job. She definitely feels special in that sense, especially as 90% of my friends' mothers don't. Just being able to say 'my mother's a university lecturer and a scientist' as opposed to my mum's a housewife or part time nursery worker. (I realize I may come across as being a slight snob - sorry if that is in any way the case).

    See, women even feel the need to apologise for having goddam skill! Thats awesome, I was always proud to say that my mum was a nurse.

    However I remember waiting for my dad to pick me up from school once and during a conversation with one of my friends mums i mentioned my dad was a postman. He told me off on the way home for telling her, he said that i shouldnt be telling people his business and that they were just nosy lol!
