I am from L.A. originally and I have known female Long Shore Workers, Truck Drivers, Auto Mechanics, Welders, Motor Cycle sales persons, Bus drivers, Sharp shooters, Doctors, Attorneys, Judges, Auto painters, landscapers...Preachers. Of course these things are professions and pay very well but for many they started as hobbies and the ladies figured out for themselves, 'Hey, I can do this!'
Attn men, if smart, strong, talented women intimidate you stay out of Cali. Or if you live in cali. and you don't know any smart, sucessful, beautifull women. Stop seeing wanabe princeses and Valley Girls.
