  • I think of anything that marginalizes a sex. Anything discriminatory, any put downs (you throw like a girl), stereotyping, overly offensive things rhat even meant as jokes only serve to remind people of what theyve gone through (gi make me a sandwhich). Also any serious remark meant to keep people "in their place," and systematuc discrimination like inequal pay and victim blaming and sex inequality in the justice system, and objectifying advertisments.

When I think of sexism, I think of three things: 1. The various memories of my dad saying in a sarcastic, victorian tone "A WOMAN doctor?!" which always makes me laugh to no end 2. The gender sentencing gap, where men are given more prison time than women for the same crimes and 3. The political status of women before 1900 (no vote, etc.).

What comes to mind is a term of the left, used to pit Americans against each other. I think of their attempt to ignore reality, and artificially equalize the inherent differences between the sexes. I think of people who are still living in the past and can't come to terms with the fact that woman have had rights already for many years. Also, I think of a favorite subject of Marxist professors who don't have an ounce of practical help for the real world, and just like to conjure up strife and indoctrinate their students to get on them on board with their unattainable utopian visions.

It brings to mind a group of pathetically mewling people who can't come to terms with the fact that their concerns have been addressed, so they just need to whine even more so people will pay attention to them. It gets very annoying very quickly.

Im guessing your not a woman? You dint see the problems because you dont have to experience them.
