3. Something similar.

The job I have is non-traditional for women. I work w 99% men for almost 30 yrs. I followed in my father's footsteps. I grasp, cling, dearly to my privilege. I feel it affords me things "normal women" don't have. I do not feel obligated to do certain "woman" things because I have a man's job, make a man's money. I do realize this is F'd up thinking, but it's what I witnessed growing up. When the bottom dropped out in 2008, family tried to convince me to find a different profession, the thing I feared most, many crying sleepless nights, was being put back into the box.
