Hello! First I would like to clarify that my position on sexism is that the US is NOT sexist as women and men are incredibly equal in this country.

I would also like to lay out a quick suggestion, use citations. Thank you for your time, happy typing!...

If you put a label on something to favor one side expect it to bite society right back in the b...
