Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Nursing as a profession is much more than "subservient", the same reasoning is used to refer degradingly to professions like cashier and so on. You can call it low(-ish) paid, but not lacking responsibility. A nurse is not a cleaning lady or a servant.

Let alone that I find the use of the word "discrimination" highly inappropriate. Far as I know, no body is forcing women into "submission", no body stops men from doing this job. If many women tend to be more caring than many men, and more good at it too, who are you to judge them as "discriminated", or "subservient", do you have any proof for it, any study going one inch further than just measuring gender proportions?
You're actually badmouthing a whole range of humanitarian and person care professions .
How about art or communication professions, I suppose someone is also pushing women in there too while blocking their access to "men" jobs. And since we can't point our fingers to that someone, we call it society, and we add some more activist laws to it.

Bon résultat, as someone said.
