It has been a while since I last encountered a sexist remark, what is worst is it was from a friend.
And seriously, this has been a challenge in WhatsApp. They keep rolling out new feature to have infinite muting.
But really, what we all wish for is just to mute or block some particular person in the group.
Now back to the story, this very early in the morning. While the phone notification kept ringing with incoming messages, there is this one particular message that literally woke me up “girls nowadays very senang, their salary is flat masuk bank acc nothing much to pay one.”
It all started from an innocent conversation when another friend are looking to hire new execs, and out of no where he dropped da bomb. Seriously? This kinda remarks at this kinda era?
To makes matter worst, he then decided to skew and narrow down to single ladies.
I’m like, really? You’ve got to be kidding me.
I am pretty sure anyone and everyone regardless of gender have their own expenses to pay for, what more if you are single. Who is going to pay for it if it’s not yourself? Am sure one will need to pay for necessities such as rent or pay for transportation or bills or food at the very least, and this doesn’t even include self indulge and pampering things like shopping for clothes, bags and etc.
I am not too sure how many single woman he have met to come to this conclusion, but I did suggest for him to go broaden and meet more single ladies before speaking on behalf.
He even went on to add that he know some single girls who earn quite a lot (5 figures) that don’t have to pay for house, don’t need to pay for car, no debts, but when asked to do investment they refused.
I suppose that is how his straight forward mind came to conclusion and equate that to them having all their salary “flat masuk bank”. And maybe, just maybe.. when someone refused to do an investment with you, it doesn’t mean they don’t invest.
