Welcome to another episode of “What the hell is Glenn thinking today.” Well, I got to thinking about a bunch of different things while browsing Twitter, Facebook, and Google. One subject that crossed my mind after seeing a tweet that randomly showed up on my feed. The thought I had was the world is constantly stating that society is sexist against females. Before you go getting your feathers in a ruffle, read where I am going with this.
The explanation of it all.
When we look at the world, we traditionally see males in certain roles and females in certain roles. This is just the way the world has worked out over the years. Looking into the business world, you do not see a lot of males taking on the role of a secretary or administrative assistant. You do not see many males in a stay home and raise the children role. You do not see males doing things like wedding planning, baby showers, and reception planning.
There is a whole world of reasons for this. First and foremost is the fact that as males, we are conditioned at a young age that those are female roles and males do not engage in them.

We are taught that jobs like construction, mechanics and business administration are the males place, not the females.

Is it due to the conditioning as children that we are above those jobs, that males do not take those rolls?
Even in relationships the female has one role and the male has another role traditionally. If you look at…
