Currently I work weekends at a nationwide retailer. Yep, that's my day job and yes, I do work Saturdays. Not sure when the hell else I should work since most weekdays my ass is on campus being a boss in class and I have to make $ to pay my own way somehow.
I'm the only girl in my department and yes I do deal with creepy guys and people who assume that, since I have a vagina, I don't know a thing about electronics. Am I going to cry, or freak out, or whine about it on twitter? No, I just go about my day combating the stereotypes by just being my great salesperson self.
I'm a strong and independent woman and I go through life with my chin up in the face of any adversity. I'm not a victim of any kind because I know how to handle things. Are the old farts who feel the need to put their hand on my arm while I'm talking about tv's creepy? Yeah. Is it uninvited? You bet. Am I going to be the bigger person by taking a step away and dazzle them with my knowledge and charisma and make them re-think their position? Hell yes.
Besides, if I rag on old men then I have to rag on the old ladies who do the same thing. Some women spout about how they'd fight a guy that touched them without permission. If you wouldn't react the same way to an elderly woman doing the same thing then I'm not convinced you're for equality between the genders.
It's also very nice that you're privileged enough to have plenty of cash on hand to be able to overreact to everything and either end up fired or quitting your job. If you are offering to pay my bills for me so I don't have to feel uncomfortable around anyone ever again great, I'll send you my bank account routing number so you can share the love.
Until then I'll just continue to be a mature adult who picks her battles wisely, doesn't have victim mentality, and doesn't lose her shit over the littlest things.
