A male public official who was put into a snow removal site drew attention when he said that he was being discriminated against by a female civil servant.

On the 19th, an article titled ‘Public officials are really mad’ was posted on an online community.

According to Writer A, who works at a ward office, he was called out from the department and went to the site for snow removal due to heavy snowfall across the country that day. However, there were only men at the snow removal site, and no female civil servants were seen.

Mr. A said, “If you look at the male-to-female ratio of the ward office staff, it is 4:6, with more females. But all that came out were men.”

He continued, “The superiors are also a problem. While creating an atmosphere of ‘a man should go out’, they don’t even move.” “When they came in after work (the female employee) drank hot coffee and pretended they didn’t see it,” he burst into anger.

Complaints about the snow removal work also surfaced in January of last year. An official from an anonymous office worker community said, “All but two of our department are women, but of course, only men do snow removal.” “It snowed a lot a few days ago and the team leader said let’s go to remove the snow and got up, but the female employee next to me just stared at the monitor and didn’t move. And he only stirs coffee.”

Some netizens who heard this story said, “We’re going out with women too. It seems that there is a special case” and “hasty generalization” was also pointed out.

However, other netizens sympathized with Mr. A, and showed various reactions such as “Still, our female employees provide coffee”, “Is it a sin to be born as a man?”, “There are places that have that kind of atmosphere.”
