After the high, the low: no women opt to fly Indian Air Force’s fighter planes

Predictable. It presumably cost the same to train the female pilots as their male colleagues, but they were not as willing to dedicate themselves to the most demanding and risky option – flying fighter planes – after their graduations.

There are parallels in the UK, of course. Let’s take female doctors. On average, female graduates from medical schools later work only half the hours over their medical careers, compared with male doctors. Women decline to work unsocial hours, or to work in the most demanding and risky fields, such as A&E – whether or not they have children.

Wherever we look, in the workplace and elsewhere, women as a class are reliably less work-centred and more risk-averse than men as a class. The state remains relentlessly in denial of this stark reality, with predictable consequences e.g. the NHS, which has been for 40+ years a job creation scheme for women wishing to work part-time. Over that time it’s become ever more inefficient and dysfunctional, ever more costly to taxpayers. No amount of money can fix what is clearly an irrecoverably broken model.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

  • Great minds. This crossed with my little note about the Arrows – they went down to five so they could get rid of the woman as one of three.

    Why are women and minorities not allowed to fail? (Rhetorical question)

    Oh come now Mr. Buchanan.

    Shame on you for questioning the very hopes and dreams of every small schoolgirl.

    For who has not witnessed them running round the playground, wings stretched far back in an heroic screaming dive, going “Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da as another enemy fighter explodes in a joyous ball of flame?

  • Our own traditions stand in the way of correcting this nonsense and waste.. If you feel awkward telling a female colleague, a daughter or a female student that she is not ‘ cut out’ for this or that job,then you too are to blame. If no one feels comfortable to tell women the obvious truth in the face, even very politely, then this freak show will go on indefinitely. As painful as it may be, men must bring themselves to do just that. Because that is the only way to put an end to the story of Emperor’s New Clothes.

    wouldn’t they be 30% cheaper to train?
