Well actually last day I had my singing test in our institution and i got an A+. The problem is that after the results were announced to of my male friends who had got less than me blatantly blamed me that since I am a girl I have been given higher grades out of pity lokking at the condition of the girls in our society. I had a heated arguement with them then and there about the present so called condition of girls in our society which is by no means pitiful and also my marks. Have you ever had to face such rude remarks from your male companion about you being more successful than them?

Some guys just can't deal with it when they perform less than a female. Aren't males supposed to be superior? LOL. I think it's very low of your so called friends to react this jealous instead of celebrating your good performance with you. You are better at singing. Boy what has the world come to! LOL. If this is their excuse in life I feel sorry for them. Let's hope they'll find a wife who is content with staying at home, cooking, cleaning, raising the children, and generally serving them... because anything else would just not be right. Machos!

Yeah! Sure they will have such wives cause others will run away..!! And they aren't my friends just we use to stay together during our singing lessons but now all the girls in the group has refused to do so...A fitting punishment for them..What say?

In my work ironically, my boss, who is a girl by the way, prefers her staff to be all guys. I am the only girl in the group. So when workloads like field audits come, she never approaches me to do the "dirty" task when in fact I can do it on my own. It is a little degrading, but come to think of the positive side, at least I can have the pretty advantage of being "babied" and not being tasked to do the dirty jobs.

It must be fun to be pampered!! but prefering boys for the tougher work is again discriminating...That's not expected from a lady boss isn't it?
