With so many discussions about why women don't choose to work in male-dominated fields, one reason often gets overlooked. Frequently women who end up working a job surrounded only by men experience all sorts of diminishing behavior from their colleagues. The lack of respect, harassment, and blatant sexism hold women back from taking jobs in any male-dominated industry. Recently a Twitter user asked women to share their experiences while working only with men. This thread perfectly highlights the problem women face while trying their strengths in 'boys club' workplaces. Scroll below to read them!

If you have impure thoughts, it's no one else's fault but your own

He should listen to Jesus. ''If your eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away for it is better to enter heaven with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fires of hell''

“Forces him to have unpure thoughts”? Not her fault that he has no self control...he’s trying to pass the blame,of his inadequacies, onto her...what an idiot.

Don't breath. The up and down movement of your breast will give him more than impure thoughts.

For a vocation that insists on telling others how to behave, clergy should be in MORE self control than others. We all know that is not the truth.

That one should just remove himself to some far away monastery full of male monks where he never has to see a woman again. Then he'll have no one to blame but himself for his 'impure thoughts'.

Yeah, blame women for you being unable to control your evil and dirty thoughts! Here’s my dirty thought... I would have told him, oh my! Your behavior is making me want to cut you and spill your blood, do you still want to keep thinking your dirty little thoughts, or are you a grown man who can control himself while in public?

Wanted to point out that, though it is racist and horrible, it's nothing that has to do with a male-dominated industry when a man makes a racist joke. It's just racism that happens to come from a man in charge. This doesn't mean anything other than the man is an idiot racist. (The man SINGULAR)

It isn't always the men. I was standing at a yardage counter with several other women. A man walked in behind us. The female clerk looked right over our heads and asked how she could help him. Nice to feel invisible.

You have to be careful. I was working at Chase when they hired on a guy I had worked with previously. He was let go from his former job for pulling a chef's knife out of his briefcase and coming at someone. I went to HR. But because there was no absolute proof, they told me I couldn't warn people. I could get fired for that. I left an anonymous note in his bosses mailbox. Risked my job to warn him, but it seemed like a good risk / reward at the time.

I was in school in 7th grade and this (asshole, sexist, etc) guy repeated the same thing that my (female) friend said, and the teacher said what a great idea it was. I raised my hand and said "Cristina actually said that first." The teacher told me to not disrespect her classroom.
