Six Reasons Working Women Aren't Equal

I would like to tell you of some of my conclusions I have come to from observations and experiences at employment, for males and females. God created us differently and to do otherwise is to upset nature.
First of all, there can be no equal treatment at the workplace for males and females in terms of pay. How can you compare a female ( single - has fewer bills, married - has husband to also support her) to a male who has to provide for himself and his family?
Second, women should not be given managerial positions in mixed gender employment settings. A woman commanding a man is against nature and God. The man can't talk back to the boss because he has a family to feed. He feels anger and that is directed against other females in general. I think that's something very wrong! Yet society is encouraging this to be the norm and calls it progress.
Also the managerial positions causes women to lose their femininity. By natural law, a man is not supposed/ cannot take orders from a woman. So men, by nature, do not obey women. This causes women to change their nature and become rude and hostile (also dressing like men) to gain compliance.
Also women suffer from mood swings (I myself included.) One day we are happy, the next day sad. It's difficult for anyone (men or other women) to endure this instability. Also women are naturally hostile to other women because they are viewed as competitors (to getting male attention). It's no secret that women oppress other women in the workplace.
Third, I think employment causes women to be immoral and evil. Most office gossip is caused and spread by women designed to hurt or get even with someone. Also to gain more position, a woman can use their sexuality and charm to lure men.
Fourth, employment puts women in a vulnerable situation to be exploited and used. Women were designed to be in familiar territory at all times, that is, at home with family, before marriage, and then with husband his family which grows with her.
You can imagine a vulnerable woman being in an unstable, ever changing workplace environment with total strangers. She gets frustrated trying to fit in. The emotional bonds she forms with people can be easily broken when they get promoted or move away.
By trying to fit in, she buys stuff from silly magazines (which drains her earnings). The fashion industry really exploits women by trying to make them fit in with clothing and make up. I know of a woman who is in debt because of her working clothes. She says she has to dress to impress her work mates, boss and customers. What do you think that does to a woman's self esteem?
Also her authority figure - boss (not father or husband) exploits her and in some cases abuses her. She is always being threatened by the boss of being fired. Bosses, male or female, around the world are afraid of threatening male employees but not the female. Once fired, who protects the female? She always needs a male authority to survive (prostitution?) no family should let their daughters move out of the home to go to work. It makes them double vulnerable.
Fifth, employment robs women of their rightful authority. Long time ago, women had two authorities to take care and provide for her, one, her family before marriage, second, her husband. Both of these authorities took care of her. But these days, women have the illusion that their career (authority) will 'take care' of them.
is why they are so many divorces. Women don't understand
that employment is not an authority and can't take care of them.
There is no 'corporate family'. Once you are done, you are thrown
out in the street.
and lastly, employment causes women to suppress and lose God's and
nature's gift. I had a friend who had met someone wonderful and she
really wanted to have a child. She was afraid to do so because her employer would fire her. She was getting older and I was
afraid that she would miss an opportunity to have kids.
I advised her
to have the kid as, the pay she was getting was not that good and
it was a dead end job, and, the guy could leave her if he really
wanted to start a family.
I don't know what her decision will be. I
just gave the above illustration to show how employment can rob women
of the gift of family and a loving partner, which women are entitled
I also see that mothers everywhere in the world being pushed to
go back to the workplace which limits their ties to their child. This
children grow up without a proper guide leaving them open to evil
people to do all sort of evil things to them.
Also employment robs women of their youth and energy - working at some cubicle. The female beauty and charm is directed to corporate profits, the boss and customers instead of a loving husband who will cherish her. The sadness of all this is that they get nothing in the end. To follow the employment way, you will end up alone especially in old age.
