  • Sexes are of all races.

    I think that sexism is very, very, very serious, and i do not stand for any feminists that try to change my life, solely because they think that they are being put as less than a male. Maybe if the feminists (that i have encountered) were to put more effort into work rather than a hatred for men, then they could gain true equality. But as for true equality, the feminists i know dont even want that, they want to be put above men, which is why i hate the ideology of feminism. Why aren't women drafted? why is it that when a female accuses a male of rape, they assume she is telling the truth, but when a male accuses a female, no one cares. although when a male accuses another male, they feel sorry for the guy (at least i do). I came up with a test that i would like you readers to try out. I am going to describe quickly a person, and i want you to imagine what that person would look like. Ok? good. A teacher that is a sex offender. Now what gender was the person? If it was male, that shows the bias, although, if it was female, you could be considered a pervert for thinking about sex with a teacher of yours. This shows that there is bias in opinions of statutory rape, that a thinking about a male teacher sex offender is creepy, but if it is a female, it could just be a sexy fantasy.

  • Yes it is

    It troubles me that we live in a society that people argue about which kind of discrimination is the worst. If somebody is being discriminated against because of who they are that is a major problem we are supposed to be past in 2013, but we are not even close.

  • Yes, it is more serious.

    Since women are roughly half the population, the possible effects of sexism are much broader. If you think of one race as being prejudiced against, you have to realize that the women in that race are suffering from a double prejudice, both racism and sexism. Also, the expressions of racist prejudice have become socially and politically unacceptable, while it is still entirely acceptable to discriminate against women as the expressions of it are more subtle and go unnoticed.

  • Sexism is violent and deadly

    Sexism is largely ignored as women are supposed to "be polite" and ignore it. Women are victims of domestic violence, and then blamed for staying with the man. Women are killed by their abusers all the time. This abuse wouldn't happen without the sexist attitudes of the abusers. When a man thinks he's better than women just based on his genitals, it's easy for him to excuse violence towards women.

  • They're Both Discrimination

    Sexism and racism are both forms of discrimination against someone for something they cannot control. Another thing is that sexism occurs just as much as racism, if not, more. Women have been denied jobs because of their gender, beaten by husbands because of their gender, and denied rape because of gender.

  • Yes, clearly and sadly

    Sexism leads to uneducated women and violence. Someone said nothing really bad happens because of sexism, it just annoying. What ignorance. How about thousand of girls uneducated, social oppression (covering with clothing, not allowed to leave the house or get a job) physical abuse, murder, and rape. Girls are constantly looked down upon and are called weak, not given second chances. Society is only successful when everyone, minorities and women, can be successful too. Instead, many are perceived as stupid when in fact women are much calmer than men and are much better in certain situations. Of course sexism is as serious!

  • Sexism is even more serious than racism. You are talking about half of the world here.

    Sexism needs to end quickly if we are to live in a peaceful world. Men are discriminated from housing. Women get all the sex, and men are left to rot. Women are getting higher pay in jobs and men are left doing the hard labor. Sexism is definitely a more serious issue than racism will ever be.

  • It definitely is

    While it seems that women aren't as oppressed as people of color, they still are. We don't get "n***r" in public but we do get cat-calls., insults for being proud feminists, stalked and over-sexualized. Oppression isn't a contest to be won, we don't need to argue over who is more oppressed-- we need to focus on ending the oppression.

  • Obviously yes !

    From an American political point of view, black men got the right to vote before women so that pretty much sums it all up. Women will always be second, that's the way it's always been and that's probably the way it will always be. Also, just because blacks face discrimination in a more violent form that doesn't automatically mean blacks "have it worse"

  • Yes it is.

    Today at work a customer made a blatant sexist comment to me asking if i was ding 'baby care or make up?' at college. I was shocked he had the cheek to say that and quickly put him in his place and told him i'm infact taking very academic subjects! I couldn't beleive he had said it but the most frustrating thing is that if i was black and he had made a racist comment he would have almost without doubt been asked to leave but instead absolutely nothing was done! People need to understand there is no difference, it is discriminating against someone because of something they can't change.

  • No, not at all.

    It's an annoying, bad habit of society, but rarely does sexism ever cause the kind of hatred and evil acts that racism does. Take a man from the south who hates all blacks and jews. That hate can cause murder, can cause him to recruit supporters into his demented cause, and for what? Hate? Ignorance? But sexism is more of a bad habit of our society of stereotyping our two most recognized genders.

  • Man and woman are different, there is no reason to make them equal.

    A man should be a man. A woman should be a woman. By the nature man has more physical strength, but less accuracy than woman. Woman is more emotional and man is less emotional. All this gives benefits for both sexes. There is a preverb: "Man is the head, and woman is the neck". Problems which require instant decision is better done by man, those problems, which require more patience and accuracy is done better by woman. So what is the reason to make sexes equal... Sexism is not a problem, problem is the attitude of some individuals. Which is the result of bad breeding.

  • Sexism: A serious issue, but not as violent.

    As you can see, racism has caused entire wars and ends in hate crimes and riots and racist groups. While sexism exists, it exists in few cultures, and it partly roots from the hatred that racism gives off. Very rarely do you hear that there were SETS OF LAWS made to limit women's rights. It is still a serious issue though. Women should be able to do the same things as men. The only thing is, it's less malicious than the blood spilled over racism. People did not get enslaved because of gender, but they did because of race. There were wars fought over women (1 woman), and of course males compete to be with a female, but there are not wars fought to oppress women, as there has been with wars fought to oppress races. The most notable example is the Civil War, one of the few wars fought on American grounds. They will tell you it was because of tax, etc. but the main cause was that Lincoln threatened the idea of slavery. The only reason the South even complained about taxes was because they wanted to keep making the most money they could off of black slaves. As far as harassment, a man may harass a woman because he's attracted to her, and it can get serious. However, a cop is not going to pull you over simply because you are a woman, and if he does, he's not going to ask you to get out of the car and put your hands on the hood for no reason.
    While sexism is a huge issue, it's not as large as racism. In terms of types of discrimination, it's 3rd priority. If we got rid of racism and religious wars, a large portion of sexism would disappear along with those two.

  • Racism is real, sexism is obscured by tradition.

    Racism has very real impacts that harm many, many people. It seeks to permanently underclass those who are afflicted by it economically, socially and in other harmful ways. It is clear to me that looking at the impact racism on the African-Americans has caused much more damage to that community than any of note by woman's claims of harm due to sexism.

    The data is clear, unemployment, education, financial gap, and more. If we look as a woman as a community vs, African-American community (including the woman or not) the comparison is clear. African-American are and have suffered far more disadvantage being black in America than a woman has for being female in this country.

    I believe the new [hi-jacked] feminist movement is giving advantage to a group that is not deserving of it. African-American's plight in this country caused by systemic racism (including the modern subtle form) are more deserving of this countries full attention. This model cannot be sustained before a major eruption may occur.

    Today's sexism is little more than campaigns for censorship and political correction. Many woman are handed many unearned benefits their entire life. It becomes so common place they expect it (entitled). They so confused these unearned handouts as something they think they've earned through merit.

    There is a conscious and unconscious aspect to it all. From birth they are given advantage or exception due to their sex. It becomes unconscious thought to expect favor without merit. Perhaps they unconsciously expect the playing field to be equaled with their male counterpart even after their parents stop supporting them.

    Woman are consumers and men are producers by in large. Men should not have to apologizes for producing and finding interest in fields that produce products of great interest to the general consuming public. Thereby gaining advantage economically. Woman were educated fairly and equally right along side men, the same cannot be said of African-Americans presently or throughout the history of this country.

    This is a shameful question and insulting to African-Americans to have this issue be treated on the same level as racism. African-Americans are suffering greatly in a harmful way. Women's harm due to alleged sexism is easily summed up by a choice namely, would they trade sexism for racism?

  • Sexism is not as bad

    Sexism hasn't killed as many people as racism has. All though i believe sexism is a major issue i think its just a small step below how bad racism is. Bad things happen due to sexism but war has happened due to racism. So even though sexism is bad racism causes greater harms.

  • Racism undermines sexism

    Women didn't get to vote until 1960 (America) because it wasn't untill then that native ameticans recieved that right. There is a long history of feminists using race as a platform for why they deserve rights. Although sexism is a valid cause, the lines of oppression and racism are more lasting.

  • It is much less violent

    Women aren't beaten up (although sometimes they are), aren't shipped off to plantations, aren't exposed to comments like n****r in public like black people. Policemen don't shoot people off just because they are women, as they do with the blacks. Sexism is practiced only by a few individuals who can do nothing more than pass comments or saying unneeded things
