:angryfire I am almost ready to walk out of my program. For 2 years I have listened to students and professors making openly degrading comments regarding members of my gender. Snide, snickering, ignorant comments to the effect that men have some kind of problem essentially because they're men. "Men eh." Well, what the ____ does that mean exactly? If I were to remark "Women eh," what sort of response do you suppose I'd receive?
I had a professor last term describe men as abusers and women and children as victims when she was doing her lecture on family violence. I'll agree, although I have no data to support it. Just based on what I see and hear in the media. Todays slap was my biology professor who allows and personally engages in male-bashing with select students, during lecture. Is a UTI more important when it's a female patient? Is a swollen prostate not a very serious thing?
I am so _______ incensed that I am ready to write the dean of the nursing school
and the president of the university to complain. I'll come off sounding like a commplete idiot because I have no exact record of what people say, it's all just general comments against men. I am sick of this ____. :angryfire

I'm a woman and I hate that "I'm a mother" thing (usually uttered when trying to get out of working holidays, weekends or summers and when trying to slack off at work). It wasn't like I had sex and they got pregnant!!!!
Sorry to highjack.... Epg, why not just sit down and talk to the dean in a non-confrontational manner? Schools
are legally responsible to provide a harassment free environment according to Ontario's human rights code (same as employers).
