Swedish SJW's claim snow plowing is sexist.
I think this is a good thing o.o
Do you mean that snow plowing is a good thing, or that it's good that people think it's sexist?


That they make it equal for both sides, it's true that men in Sweden has been the priority to hire when it comes to snow removal.
Sweden is all about equality.

We kinda thought they were saying snow plowing ITSELF is sexist. Not that they only hired men to do the job. XD

You can't call an occupation sexist if it isn't by nature.  Snow plowing isn't exactly a job most people think about wanting to do as they grow up.  Fact of the matter is, more men apply for snow plow driving jobs.  It isn't sexist, it just is a fact.  You sit and a truck and drive around removing snow.  They'll hire anyone who wants to do that.

Another job that isn't inherently sexist is, but SJW's label it as one, is airplane pilots for commercial liners.  93% of commercial pilots are men, yet most women who do the course to become a pilot, become a pilot anyways.  Studies by British Airways has shown women at a young age don't see being a pilot as a top job for them.  Over 1,000 young people asked, no females said they wanted to be a pilot, yet some male children did.  The British Airways study concluded that females might not choose to be pilots because of the time constraints and commitments to being a pilot, and how it takes away from family life.  They also used data on their own pilots and found many female pilots had to take time off for child bearing and raising, and many didn't come back after that.  So it came down to time and perception.

There is also debate with car mechanics.  Most are men, but I don't have any data on that one.

I agree that priority roads that are main arterials need to be removed first.  I disagree with the article saying that roads need to all be plowed the same.  That makes no sense.  Why would you plow a road with two homes on it before plowing a main road that connects people to business and services like a hospital?

The article becomes ridiculous because equality becomes a detriment when taken too far.

Yes.  Yes on all that.  I think the big take away was you last line as well.

As long as they don't it's sexist to only allow males be male models or females be female models.... oh wait... they do that.

I'm going to play devil's advocate.

So lets say this girl is REALLY good, and she feels playing on the female teams is not a big enough challenge for her... should she be allowed to play with a higher league team?  Boy or girl league?

What? But that's... Not what's happening. The girls basketball team wasn't formed because there wasn't enough interest in it. So because she still wanted to play, and school is CLEARLY the only place to play basketball, she wants to play with the guys.

But then the whole thing about fairness comes in. She's going to be playing with boys if she does get her way. And they'll either destroy her, or not want to hurt her because "she's a girl" and thus not actually ever give her the challenge of playing. They'll be soft on her, or as rough as they are with normal boys and could hurt her.

There's a reason there are boy and girl teams, and I know there are mixed teams, but in that case, both teams are mixed.
