@Cambridgeskip offers a litany of women moving into the male dominated areas of society. Yet, where's the list of where men are allowed into a female dominated areas of society?
I had many years of adult leadership in many organizations, community, religious and Boy Scouting. Yet when my daughters were in GS/USA I offered up my expertise and was rejected because they wanted women running their troops. When I was looking for employment I applied for a position in the local GS/USA offices and having sent in an application and resume, did not hear back from them but the help wanted ad stayed in the newspaper for a month afterwards.
Sorry, but it doesn't work both ways.
I cook, I sew, I do laundry and I clean house, I do needlepoint and embroidery, and many other traditional "female" skills, yet the stares I get are all the same. I would try Heritage Girls, but I really don't like wasting my time, I have limited volunteering time in my life to waste it on political agendas.
I have 1700+ hours of volunteering for the American Red Cross since June 1st of last year. I have gone on two disaster relief operations one in Louisiana, one in South Carolina and today I am clearing my calendar with backup people for my church youth group and Scout troop because I might get deployed to Northern California to do another disaster relief operation because of the 180,000 people evacuated from the possible dam breech.
Maybe if some of these people with political agendas ever decide to roll up their sleeves and "help other people at all times" instead of whining about not getting an Eagle medallion, something more constructive can be accomplished.
