Do young women know the meaning of sexism?
I was standing outside my Psychology classroom today chatting up a girl a year younger I had never spoken to. She asked me if I thought our teacher was a sexist. I told her, actually, I thought he was gay. This man makes absolutely no remarks regarding gender roles. He has made no comments towards girls to discriminate on them. I went on to ask her, why do you think he is sexist? She said to just pay attention to what he does in class.

So I paid attention closely in class. And I found no evidence that would support him being a sexist. I met up with her after class and the first thing she said was: "See?!?" I asked what she was talking about. "See how he called on (girl) over (guy)?"


sexism - prejudice or discrimination based on sex; especially : discrimination against women

I personally believe that men are fit to do certain tasks and women believe in certain tasks. Maybe today, in the modern world, this would be considered sexism.

In any event, girls are becoming more and more delusional when it comes to what classifies as sexism. This is not a good thing...

RE: Do young women know the meaning of sexism?
I've said it before and I'll say it again: sexist is starting to be used interchangeably with masculine. Most disturbingly, I've heard it applied in this way most by male white-knight types.
