Clearly you've never worked in a nursing environment, and "female jobs"?
Many male nurses would take dispute with your sweeping generalisation of
their career path.

Funny, my job does the same.  Am I a woman?

What the hell are these "female jobs" you're alluding to?  I will wager
there are few jobs left that are solely the preserve of women to hold them,
and of those there will still be some that could conceivably present a
danger to life in the right (or wrong, I suppose) circumstances.

Fucking hell mate, you need a slap but hard.  Or do nurses, who you seem to
characterise as a 'women-only' career, not work night shifts where you are?
 My mother has worked as a mental health nurse for the last 30-odd years,
and night shift for around 25 of those.  Explain that, chauvinist-boy.
