When I drove before, I never saw any women harassed or belittled. Maybe a few "cat calls", but I don't think that having women truckers out here is a bad thing, and should be treated with respect, but they also don't need to be pulling the "damsel in distress" card (unless they are really asking for help.) And most guys will help. But lady, why would you want to stir the s*** pot the way you are. Most lady truckers I met before when I did Fedx Ground, didn't act like a primadonna. They came into the fuel stops to fuel, maybe get something to eat, chat maybe with another trucker on how their day was going and back on the road to do her job. PERIOD! I don't care what color, or gender you are, can you drive the truck and stay in your lane and do it safely. That is all anyone should ask for.

"Our society in general promotes victimization because it makes some people feel special and unique. Some feel solidarity in sharing their stories with other victims. Women need to stop playing the victim card if they want equality. They need to stop hating men."

YES!!!!!! SO MUCH THIS!!! Thank you, Rainy, for saying something I think all the time! Every human being should read your blog whether they're female or male, trucker or not!

Im glad i can help, and you see will many will disagree with me, but who cares. do whatever is good for you, safe for you, and makes you happy.

Bad attitudes get bad results. Great attitudes get big $$$$ in the bank ;)
