The Chauvinist

Diary Entry 6






This post is not meant to hurt the sentiments of fellow women I have worked with in the past, it's a mere observation based purely on statistics... 




I have been part of a organizations and groups working collectively for a common cause. I am not going to name any of these organizations because naming them will be like naming the people I worked with. I had female team members working with me. I realized that working with women infuriated me beyond imagination (no matter how hot they looked). I am not talking about one event that happened in my life, but of several events that happened in the course of my life. No I am not a sexist. I don't have a bias against women. Why will I hate being around hot chicks? But women when working in a team show a utter lack of commitment. Things are either too hard for them to do or they have other important commitments or they don't have time to do it. Its understandable and you sort tend to fill in for them and do their jobs the first time. But once they realize that you will back them up, they will use you every time. The result is that you end up doing the things of two or three people instead of one. Was the mistake giving them the same responsibility as men? I am not saying that. But when I wonder what the problem is, when I like other men in the team end up having so much work load, I cannot come up with any other answer. This is especially infuriating when you are the leader of a group like a social service organization. You sort of tend to feel sorry for your female team mates and might think that maybe you are over working them when the truth remains that you are not working them at all.

The obvious solution you might suggest to this problem is refusing to do their work for them. But that's not a great idea because you will have deadlines to meet and when your team fails, no matter how much effort you put in you fail too. Well if you are a woman and you are reading this, you are going to say, "hey men do that too you know. There is no difference." Well there is a difference. When men slack off and give excuses for not doing their jobs, we tell them not to be a girl. For a man, being called a girl is very offensive. We don't hold ourselves back with men in the use of swear words either. But most gentlemen don't abuse women with swear words (sometimes because women don't know the meaning of those swear words especially if its in Tamil).



Women will defend themselves by calling people who say this as male chauvinist. According to them male chauvinism is the attitude of superiority that men have towards the opposite sex. Well the way I see it men have this attitude of superiority because men do all the work and end up filling in for women which makes them superior. So when I say I hate working with women, you might view it as a male chauvinistic remark. Feminist would say its because I am intimidated by productive women. But on the contrary, I have seen so many lousy women that when I see a lady who is productive, no matter how bad she looks, I will find her very hot. And why do I find her hot? Because such women are so rare that in my eyes they seem like exotic Persian beauties.

  1. I agree with you to an extent. I'm not going to call you a Male Chauvinist. Yes some Women, work really well on their own, but when they have to work as a team, somehow I find this disinterested attitude in many of them. I myself have found it irritating. But again, not all of us are that way. Some are, Some are not. Sad that you came across only those who weren't good at team work
