Trying to work out how I really feel about all this.
Firstly it is something I do not agree with, why open it only to women, I know it was done as a marketing ploy but the way I see it, it is in a sense actually using women to do so.
Exploiting how some women do feel and promoting the division that use to exist and in most countries now does not.
Having said that I have to confess that I own a company, well a partner in that company, where all of our employees are women.
That was not done as a sexist act, or in any way saying anything against guys.
It just happened, the 1st 4 we employed were females, the reason being they were the ones that were best qualified and suited to the job, not based on their gender but on how they presented themselves and their ability to do what we needed.
The field we are in is rather dominated by females, at uni we out numbered guys by more than 3 to 1.
In the time I interviewed people only 2 guys applied, one was not qualitied and the other left me feeling he thought because he was a guy he would be able to show us all how to do things, just seemed to have an attitude that wouldn't suite.
When we decided to expand to more than 4, the girls asked if we could keep it as all girls, as it just made for such a better work environment, again not meaning to be sexist, just that it seemed to work, and we decided to keep it that way.
Plus I think it will have been hard for a guy to feel comfortable anyway, 2 women owners and the other 4 employees all being girls.
We now have 7 graphic artists and a receptionist, all girls and none are lesbians, not that they wouldn't be welcome, just turned out that way.
The oldest is 31, except for my partner who is older, and it is just a very fun place to work.
Lol, I have to admit we joked around when we decided to have a receptionist, come office clerk, come coffee getter, that we should get a guy for that, but none of us were really serious and all thought it would be a tough job for a guy to handle.
Not that a guy couldn't do it, just he would be really badly out numbered and would cop a lot of shit.
I have mentioned all this as I do feel there are places where it is needed where guys can do their thing and girls can do theirs.
My bf has a guys night most Tuesday nights where they go play pool, no girls allowed and I think that is fine and feel they do need that time.
My company just seems to work so well the way it is and I feel certain there is other companies that have all males and works just as well.
But when it comes to this, opening a movie to only girls, I just feel that is wrong, especially when it was done by guys.
