mumpreneur - bleaaarrgghh!
I hate cr@p like that. I also avoid any "women in business" places. I'm a person
in business. It smacks of so-called positive discrimination. "Well, you know, it's only a woman." I don't want to be treated like that.
Politeness is appreciated and some of my best helpers call me M'dear at times, but that's just an affectionate term and not condescending.
I've looked at some of these cringe-worthy women's places (gotta keep an eye out to see what people are up to) and most I found were either talking about the problems of being a trailing spouse (following your husband because of his job) or SHOCK! HORROR! the excitement of a woman having her own career.
The stupid thing is that women don't need this sort of "help". I've never yet found anyone who had a problem dealing with me simply because I'm a woman. I have less respect for women who seem to need this women-only stuff.
OK, I'm ready for the flak. Like I care?
Responses from women only please. I'm afraid to face what the men might have to say.
