Gendertypes - the CEO and the secretary

Two more gendertypes.

The CEO



Only women are considered fit for top jobs, and the business world is no exception. The CEO is famously brash, pushy, and unsentimental, exploiting workers with a ruthlessness that leaves her laughing all the way to her bloated bank account.

The secretary



One of the most familiar workplace roles for men is secretarial. Busy, important women across the country enjoy having some eye candy on call to make the coffee. The male secretary is a familliar type: the short skirt, the satiny blouse, and that slightly dazed look that comes on when a task gets a little more complicated than varnishing his nails.

  1. I like to think that behind the vacant look is a shrewd operator, learning how to play the pompous bosses off of each other. A bad boss, unable to keep her hands to herself might find that the Office Angel has laid a few traps (lipstick on the collar, the house telephoned and the receiver off the hook so hubby can listen in to the high jinks without the boss finding out) for hubby back home to find and confront the philandering boss with.

    We might wear the short skirts, the pretty make up and take down dictation but all the while we men are thinking of ways to turn things to our advantage.

    1. Quite right- not every secretary is a dimwit purely focused on his makeup and nails.... This one probably manages the boss with lots of sweet masculine wiles

  6. De tout façon c'est l'avenir, aujourd'hui de plus en plus la femme a des postes à trés haute responsabilité, president de l'Allemagne, une femme, bientôt aux Etats Unis se sera une femme, en France aussi peut être, et l'homme lui sera relégué aux tâches inférieures encore que sur cette image il est secrétaire, il a pas à se plaindre, car l'homme de demain devrait être au foyer il sera pére au foyer et n'aura aucune responsabilité si ce n'est qu'élever les enfants et tenir la maison propre
