Today, I started a sport journalism degree. I was the only female out of 60 students. The lecturer started talking about how we should all aspire to become sports editors of national newspapers. Later, he said women have no chance of ever becoming sports editors. FML

Withe the demise of newspapers, who would want to?

Make him feel bad !

Prove him wrong with a syndicated digital sports column.

Approve! Show him how wrong he is!

Well, maybe he forgot you were there? Although I hate his comment, maybe it wasn't completely on purpose >.<

Even if she wasn't there, he shouldn't have said that.

Maybe because I'm from a male dominated engineering group I understand lecturers in general making sexist remarks without meaning it. Most apologise if you bring it up, 'cause they just don't think before making the remark.

Dude I fuckin love league of legends what's your summoner name?

112 nerd it down big boy

Nice 113. I laughed out loud.

But, just because they don't think before they act doesn't give them an excuse. Most times the first thing out of someone's mouth is going to be there honest opinion, not a fabricated one to make people feel good. And, if you look at America today, more and more women are bringing in the money while the man sits on the couch playing video games all day. i.e. 112

Well thats downright offensive. Tell him that he has no chance of getting laid with that attitude. Ever.

I doubt that's his pick up line. :P

Sounds like this guy is still living in the past. It bothers me how some guys still believe women aren't capable of doing the same stuff men are.

It's comments like these that make me with I can thumb up more then once

Comments like those make me grateful I have spellcheck.

It's not that guys don't think women can do what guys can, its that guys think women can't do it as well. For certain things anyway. I am not saying men are better and girls are inferior, just that different genders are better suited for different things. It goes both ways though, girls are usually better than guys at certain tasks (taking care of people, caring and helping people, planning stuff, etc.) Or if you picked 11 random guys and 11 random girls and had a football game odds are the guys would win. I didn't say they would every single time, anyway if I said anything offensive or sexist or whatever my bad, I'll ride my dinosaur home now.

Oh no he di'nt. Use your awesome skills to prove otherwise.

Women don't have "awsome skills". Or any at all really. :D

1. Awesome* 2. Oh no you di'nt. *neck roll + index finger in the air + Z snap* (also, I didn't thumb you down. I know you're joking)

Hahaha if you're gonna insult us, use spell check next time ;) just made us look that much more AWESOME!!! Bahaha

TriflingAllDay: i hope you get used to your right hand.

Unless women don't have "awsome skills". :)

Funny how all the other men in the room don't have to have any awesome skills, isn't it? This sort of thing puts extra pressure on women.

77- don't be a di'kut mando. Women have as many awesome skills as men.

Well woman usually get the job done the first time anyways! Aha

The lecturer is a sexist pig :( he'll regret that when you're his boss at some newspaper someday :)

There's a reason why he's only a lecturer and not an editor in a magazine firm(:

Yah women used to be nothing and couldn't become anything... We proved that shit wrong. Now we are CEO of major companies Commanders in the military etc.

And you make lovely sandwiches.

Damn right, we do.

Out of all the fortune 500 companies only 2/500 have women CEO's not bad considering at some point in history women were'nt allowed to vote.

52- fuck sandwiches, I can cook whole meals

That is crap!! I worked for a female sports editor! Journalism and actual news print is dying... That would be my concern.

Print really is dying. Television is finding ways of cutting costs and going on skeleton crews. The net really is killing the news industry. Though many females have excelled in sports coverage. I've always warned people wanting in the news industry to think long and hard. It is a fun job. Crap hours, crap pay. I do think it's something worth experiencing in the short term though. I'm glad I did it for all of those years. I'm also glad I got out.

Just be like,"that's why guys like you will never get laid"

Good for you being the only female!! I was in the same situation last year and I proved them all wrong!!! You can do this :)

He's likely just bitter that he couldn't hack it and ended up abandoning his dreams of fame and fortune. Prove him wrong op.
