My kindergartner came home with a paper on firefighters for fire safety week. In it there was a profile of Katrina the firewoman. Give me a break. Why does it have to be a woman? She's lugging all this gear and I have to wonder, are women subject to the same physical standards as men? Probably not, they aren't in the military.
(I will note that spellcheck doesn't have firewoman in its repertroire but fireman is there. Hmmm...maybe somebody should alert them to their inherent bias.)
