    I never knew enough about the pay of others so I can't comment on anything like that, but the Agriculture Business industry is definitely male heavy and it was the same when I worked at a junior college in the Ag department as well. My boss was great so I don't have anything to comment there other than some of the discussions and comments made at staff meetings were definitely not appropriate and it was easier to ignore/act like I didn't care than to speak up about it. I'm not usually one to sit silently but the teacher acting inappropriately was the college roommate of my boss so it seemed like it would've been a losing battle anyways.

    The VP of the school used to teach in the Ag department so he hung around us quite a bit and I don't think he respected women based on several comments and assumptions made about me. I chose to make his comments look stupid by being more intelligent than he is and putting him in his place with words and actions. After a year he stopped making assumptions based on my gender.

    My professor in grad school told me if I wanted to go into Ag Sales that I needed to learn to play golf because most of the guys go golfing and that's where deals are really made. I went to a big school and we only had 2 female professors in the department.

    I've had to deal with a sexist boss. Sexist against men, that is. That was in a left-leaning union that had a lot of LGBT employees, too, which surprised me.

    So men can make their own sexism thread?

    Edit: i don't particularly care; it s just jcc threads tend not to be so draconian on topic rules.

    Because I'm sick to death of whenever you try to bring up something with sexism and then guys jump in with a OH HEY SOMEONE WAS SEXIST TO ME THIS ONE TIME. Obviously it happens to men. Just not the same way it happens to women, in completely different situations, and extremely less hindering to lifestyles....therefore different conversation.

    Because you can't be racist against whites, of course.

    White people can be racist against white people though. That's a thing.

    It'd be funny if it were accurate.

    Didn't this just get hijacked into a racism thread? Carry on.

    It occurred to me the other day that us white folks need some cool nickname to call each other. But "cracka" wasn't one of them. So, since we might use chocolate for black folks, and vanilla for whiute folks, I say we call each pother "nilla". See? It's like vanilla but also there are Nilla Wafers and it rhymes enough with, well, I guess a word I can't type here that folks who need to say it will be satisfied.

    This is what happens when you ask for female perspectives and mostly just guys come in to answer like bros. Thanks for the lulz.
