A girls struggle in a mans world

How come that, in the year 2011, after having worked in the same field for over 10 years, having proved myself over and over again, I still have to hear comments such as "I suppose science wasn't your favourite subject in school?" or "Well that shouldn't be a problem for you because you are cute ;)" or, the most frequent one, "You must be the assistant?"
Now why would you assume that??

 Just a thought on a Thursday morning.... Raaaaaawwwwwrrrrrrrr!

  3. Pierre: ...and this was just a few examples ;) Happy Easter!! x

    Paps: I know....really crazy how some people are far behind...maybe deliberately though? ;) Happy Easter right back at ya! KRAM!

    Lina: Ah yes you would certainly know then ;)) ...and for me this has always been a sensitive topic as I've always been drawn to things that people think are more typical for men than women, like playing soccer.... *sigh* I wish I could just ignore it, but narrow-mindness makes me way too angry ;) Happy Easter Lina x
