Today I was told that the job I accepted was given to me because I’m a girl. By the guys I tutored in 6+ classes. Of course it doesn’t have anything to do with the fact that I’ve worked harder. It’s because I’m a girl.
This happened to me in flight school too when I selected C-130s. I was told “it’s only because you’re a woman.” Never mind that I had the highest grades & therefore got my first choice…
How sad that 12+ years later this is still happening.
Ignore them, sweetie. You’ve done better than them & they can’t stand it!
Happy 55th Birthday, Emma Thompson!
