@mixtapehearts:  Oh no worries I totally didnt get it that way. I Graduated highschool early, I did prelaw and law at Ivy and my MBA I did it at Mcgill In Canada…I hated it.

Some People here at the beehive love picking fights.  I am not one of them.

I have been trying to tell the OP to just get over it and be happy…and If you read all the private M I have been getting. Congratulations on your twins!!!! I am so Jealous! We are going to be TTC after this summer and my husband is dying for twins. And thanks for the curiosity.

@MrsNewDay:  The choice of staying at home or working you do have it…because now you can work vote and go to school….. That is the choice I was talking about.

Hang out with smarter people.  Or at the very least, try to find some who aren’t sexist.

@bbfyso:  Oh gotcha. I just know that when I used to discuss this with others, they would assume all women had a choice between housewiving and working, and that’s not the case at all for many women. Yes, we can vote, work, and go to school now. Go sisterhood! 🙂

When someone says med school, I assume medical school, not nursing! But I see the same thing all the time. Fiance is a vet student, whenever people find out he is in vet school, they ask if it is a 2 year program / trade school. Sigh.

I would assume you were in medical school to be a doctor, but people can be morons. It totally goes both ways, too. One of my closest guy friends is a nurse and he still gets the whole “But, you’re a guy?” thing.

@beachbride1216:  I came here JUST to say exactly what you just said. People (even people who knew me) would say “so what are you, a paralegal?” Uhhh, check the wall, that’s a BAR license. I (still) have all kinds of theories why it was so difficult for people to look at me and perceive that I was an attorney. There are many, many female attorneys and for my law school every class for the past 10 years or so has had more women than men. However, when I say I own an event management company or I’m a professional spirits taster (both of which are also true) people never bat an eyelash. Shrugs.

I guess I’m just not really clear on why you are letting the opinions of people who are obviously ignorant/sexist bother you.

I’m a physician assistant, 26 years old and I look about 18. I get called nurse, tech, PA student, med student, resident etc etc… never PA. Oh well.
