Skip to comments.A lexicon for gender bias in academia and medicine
Posted on 12/14/2018 6:10:19 PM PST by saywhatagain
Mansplaining is the tip of the iceberg. Many of the experiences of women in the workforce are so patterned and commonplace they have spawned an emerging vocabulary, which includes terms like bropropriation (when a man takes credit for a womans idea). Here, we propose a number of additions to the vernacular, which are likely to remain relevant for the foreseeable future.

How can we take any of this tripe seriously? Good Grief.
Idiocy: the lexicon outlined here.
Extremely hard to take any of it seriously.
> Mantoring: A man who only mentors other men
A viable survival strategy. No man in his right mind wants to be alone in a room any woman other than his wife, at least in a business setting. These days, it’s playing Russian Roulette.
Frankly this ‘junk’ needs to cease. People promoting all this gender stuff aren’t doing a thing for woman.....just the opposite. They need to remember who THEY are and not who they want the rest of us to believe they are....and are not.
Upper level management was constantly look for women that were viable candidates.
Someone needs to write one up for women.......that would be a hoot!
Even in medicine 32 years and never heard them. I have been in leadership at various levels and never experienced bias in regards to my gender. If you act like a professional you are generally treated like one
Any women in the field were snapped right up, hired, and kept on even if they were a bit cavalier with the work rules.
Men had a hard time finding any job in the field.. maybe there would be an offer from South Africa...
Whipped: the writers of this lexicon
Females always get excused from call, come in late, leave early, get preferred assignments, cop out of crappy work for personal reasons, use kids as excuses to be let go from work or call, and on and on.
Males just take up the slack the females create. For free. No compensation for doing it.
