The history of women has been that of oppression. In older times, life was more than unfair for females. Women and Men both have the power to help this world. One fighting without the other is utterly useless. Women and Men fighting side by side changes everything. Men aren't the only useful gender.
Although this society is idiotic. In this world stupidity is a growing disease. ''Gender roles'' as people call them are completely untrue. Women don't need to be in a kitchen, after all we have proven we are worthy of much more. No longer are we lesser objects than guitars. If a women decides not to cook for her husband then that is the man's problem, if he is hungry let him cook. And men can also stay home. There is nothing wrong with being a stay at home husband. We, as humans, walk blindly holding society's hand. But people should open their eyes and see that society is blind itself. There is no higher force telling you these lies about whom should be working and whom should be cooking. These things we get in our minds are the lies that we have been conditioned to think for hundreds of years. But the slaves are free, the jews are free. The reason sexism has not gone away is because it was brought to us by society and society consists of us, the people. If we say nothing, we should expect nothing. Speak out on this problem. That is why we have voices.
It sucks and is a bunch of bull! The shackled days for women are over! We can do what we please and can be independent and get great jobs :) I love it. Sexist people need one big kick in the face to wake them up! Its 2014! Not the dark ages!! We belong wherever we please..
Sexism is the prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex. For the most part, I feel as though this issue has been conquered in the United States. I think there are still many men who have issues dealing with it or are unaware that they hold these attitudes, but for the most part, I think it is gone.
We should get rid of sexism, for all genders not just the girls. There is times when a guy is the subject of sexism as well and it is important to recognize that fact and accept that it can happen to anyone that way we can work together to stop it.
Of course we should get rid of sexism, just like we need to get rid of racism (which is still sadly prevalent). But the only way to do this is have an open discussion and dialogue about what sexism is and how we perpetuate it, often without knowing. Only then can we have a truly equal society.
Yes, I believe we should get rid of sexism, because it is unfair, and there is simply no need for it. We have come to far in America for things like sexism to still be relevant. Woman should have the same rights as men, and vice versa. Sexism should be extinct.
We should get rid of sexism. I think we have all proved lately how equal we are from the office and to the battle field. It is time to put sexism behind us and look into the future and instead of looking down upon one sex or the other. It should not be an issue anymore.
Yes, we should strive to do away with sexism. Sexism marginalizes almost fifty percent of the population, that is women, and this is a travesty. Men, women, intersexed people, transexuals, all of these types of people should be treated equally, as well as any other type of person that may be out there.
I know it's harder than it seems, but we SHOULD get rid of it! Society still has the "traditional gender roles" enforced, but things are CHANGING! Men and Women should do EQUAL jobs. Women in history were only seen as housewives, teachers, nurses, etc. More men today dominate those jobs! My own quote: "If a woman can be better at "men's" work, men dominate "women's" work!"
Sexism must go because it is wrong!!! How would you feel if you were not allowed to something just because you are the other gender? Well thats how Women feel. Personally Women are strong and confident humans. Sexism happens to Men as well which is just wrong, but sexism happens to strong and confident Women/men who wants to do what they love and don't care what people think of them doing that .
Sexism is perfectly all right. It is called freedom of expression. However, sexism should be restricted to the private sector, where a business can freely refuse service to anyone. Any business that refuses to serve or employ a specific group will soon find paying or talented members of that group around them and flounder to death. The problem solves itself!
However, posting the rules about women being banned from the premises in a dedicated guys-only group (Hey, you have your women-only whinefests, or whatever you do. Let guys have our places that are infinitely cooler than yours because they're ours (For reference, that was elitism, not sexism)) is a very good idea, so women don't waste their time trying to get into our guys only clubhouse. You can get your own clubhouse, or join a co-ed one, and engage in your activities there. Not here.
What's that? We invested in better facilities? You could too, but we're established enough that we did it forever ago. You'll have to build your own. Sorry for being here first.
Behold the glass ceiling. That's evolutionary in nature, and it won't go away until we're sexless clones, because the biological clock is ticking...
