Just wanted to get some honest feed back about how men feel about having women serve as FF. Please be very honest! The reason for this is:
1. I have witnessed society feels women can't do this job- we are to fragile , etc.
2. People think women that work around a bunch of men must be easy or having relations with at least one of the them
3. Sexual harrassment issues arise more often
4. Some men have trouble taking orders from a woman (or vice versa)
These are just a few of the things I have seen or heard about.. Please share y you feel this way

I know you were wanting the guys opinions, but I can tell you I have found in my short 4 yrs that I have not ran into many guys that don't except me or respect me a FF, I am 5'2" and weigh maybe 125, the guys on my Dept. and the guys I went thru training with will all go in a fire with me, and know that yes I can drag there big butts out.... it's amazing what an adrenaline rush will do for strength! I agree 100% that if you can do the job go for it! It comes with strength and determination to get the job done and done rite....As far sexual Harrassment, it goes both ways! Women can do as much talking as a man can, if you don't like what's being said don't get in the conversation! Things that have been said to me...LOL, Laugh it off or go with the flow! And yes I'm sure that this is a topic that has been going on for awhile.....Everyone will always have there own opinion....all that matters is can you do the job?
NO!!!!! I did not !! Just forget it ! Everyone is entitled to an opinion!
He does not care and you don't have to be mean good gosh
Yes they are entitled to their own opinion, but when it is an opinion like the one you stated (in an open forum) now you have to sit back and deal with the consequences. They call it being accountable for your own actions.
Hey comment on my forum all you want
I didn't mean to offend any one . I'm sorry for having an honest opinion
I would comment on your forum, But I am under the impression that women work for Apparatus manufacturers and you would be a hypocrite if you think they should be allowed to do such stressful work.
Shame I waste my 700th post on this bout of foolishness. Wake up Kid, it's 2008 not 1908.
Come on
I'm sure u did offend someone? But with me I know I can do the job...and that's all that matters! :)
Man I don't see why your getting so mad over a forum
I did not mean to though . I should have not ov said anything . People are being really nasty
