The first comment is nonsense. The second is true because a lot of men I know are unfortunately scared that if something happens it’ll ruin their careers

Fa1 if men are treating you like that then you’re hanging around the wrong men. That isn’t true for the average man

Credibility for sure. Before you even open your mouth everyone assumes you are stupid and incompetent just because of your gender. It's almost impossible to get respect from anyone and you have to achieve extraordinary things to get even an ounce of respect from a man!

Also it impacts you because you don't get invited to do things with colleagues like a group of men will go to a bar together after work and never invite you

What a waste of time. Find your own group.

I was at husbands boss home. Apparently he had applied at Merrill Lynch and didn’t get hired. When I told him I worked at MLynch he wanted to know if I had my licenses, like the 7, 63..65..hmmm all of them? 😂

Thank you for this thread. I’m a male, but hired and am grooming a recent college grad (my much younger cousin) to be an FA. So it’s good to get a sense of her potential challenges that I otherwise might not have been made aware of.

Okay for the last time - the fact that Cities tend to have higher crime (which has been declining over the years ) is a function of what cities are and what they attract - big populations (people moving here for opportunities), social/economic variations resulting in higher possibilities of crime. Cities also tend to have a more diverse demographic than smaller towns, suburbs which tend to have less economic and social diversity. If you have to use crime as a metric for comparison....(contd.)

Nobody wants to be a minority until it’s beneficial to be one. And I peep the game and the change in behavior
