On "Sexism"

Fr. Longenecker says:
Maybe 'sexism' means excluding women from certain jobs that are traditionally associated with men. Call me old fashioned, but I don't think it's a very nice thing to expect women to take on nasty and disagreeable jobs like being soldiers or policemen or fire fighters or septic tank cleaners or butchers or slaughterhouse workers or politicians or trash collectors or bankers or stockbrokers. These are dirty, filthy, and demeaning professions. Women are better than that.
