All, come on, MK, the woman thing is so tiring. The women face a glass ceiling from the day they are born. The women, with a few exceptions, almost always will not be making more than the men will when the women hit their 5 year mark while the guys will be 3 years in and making more. Wasn't fair 50 years ago and it isn't fair today, but it's the way it is and has been. I don't see the guys complaining when the girls have to give up their careers in order to have a family. On noooo. Heaven forbid.
We didn't complain in the 35 years from WWII in the US when the draft was active to the Korean War, the cold war and Vietnam. We just did it. The women there also faced glass ceilings and still do today. Singapore is a Patriarchal Society and the women are always forced to take a back seat. If the women had to do military service like the Israeli women do, the men here would be whinging about the women getting ahead of them in the Military as well. The guys just need to grow a set, nothing more. The generation between Vietnam and the Gulf war has bred a bunch of pacifist wimps who want the goodies from the government but don't want the responsibility of protecting their government. It's great to be a pacifist, but it doesn't work.
