Fire service bans white men from open days
Is this really going to help integrate women and ethnic minority men into the fire service? Of course not, its going to build resentment. If there is really a body of women and ethnic minority men out there who are just dying to become fire-fighters, but are put off by the very thought of having to mingle with white men at open days then:
1. How the hell are they going to work shoulder-to-shoulder with white men when fighting fires?
2. If they are that f*cked up, then they shouldn't be given the responsibility of being a fire-fighter
If my house was on fire, I'd want men - white or black or brown - to be sent in, not women, who are, on average, physically weaker and less visually intelligent.
I hope the number of white male recruits totally plummets now, because this is sending out the message that this fire service does not want white men.
And while I'm on the subject of discrimination against men in job recruitment, a word about female doctors. In this country about 60% of medical students are now female. Now, we have health-care in the UK which is highly subsidised by the taxpayer, such that most procedures are free. If you asked most people: do you think it would be good for the country if 60% of new medical students were over 55 years old, they would say 'No!'. With a majority of medical students that age, they would only have about 10 years of good, active full-time service ahead of them. But this is EXACTLY the case with women too! A large proportion of female medical students work for 10 years or less before 'retiring' to a less intense job (perhaps after having found a high-earning husband to fund their lifestyle), or to have children. There is an enormous cost to the taxpayer, and the patient when the majority of doctors are women.
