  • I get irritated with the usage it now carries. Feminists have literally redefined it to only apply to what men do to women. That is unbearable.

  • It's overused in reverse discrimination arguments. Reverse discrimination is usually a silly idea, be it applied to sex, race or sexual orientation.

  • It is really rather annoying when radical feminists get up in arms and cry sexism in response to well-established words of the English language (e.g. mankind, congressman, statesman).

I rarely even hear the word honestly.

Society is more sexist than it should be.

TheMatquis: Its usually used that way because thats usually how life works. Men suffer some sexism but women suffer much more of it.

@Stefy: That isn't what I mean by any stretch. It has been LITERALLY redefined. When I say that it is discrimination based upon lines of gender I am told that it has a new meaning that none of them apparently have the time to explain to me.

You've mostly heard it applied to what men do to women because that reflects what happens in our society most of the time. That literally what you said i don't understand the difference. Who on earth says that is not t he definition. Why don't you tell me the new definition that you have been told? Im curious I've never heard there was any definition except discrimination based on sex or gender.
