I Hate Sexism

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,025 People

    Sexism? Hmm..

    I gotta be honest, sometimes I say sexist towards both sexist men/women but its because I really hate double standards and I really hate when people go into gender wars thinking one gender is better than the other. So I  say something sexist out of spite and anger. Do I mean it...

    Watch How Fast I Poison That Sandwich, Boy

    Wow, the sexist things people say. I can't tell you how many stupid "women making sandwiches/staying in the kitchen" jokes I've heard not only men make, but women themselves! I do believe in having a sense of humor, really I do. But sexism just ****** me off. Women had to work so...

    I Dislike All the Gender Stereotypes..

    Today I bought some wood, so that I can make my turtle a new house for her terrarium. So I told the guy at the shop what kind of wood I'd like and what size and all that stuff and he just laughed and had that stupid smile on him that said "Come on, little girl. You know...

    Young And Impressionable

    I am a young lady. I grew up in a liberal town where the common view is that men and women are equal. I recently moved away to go to college and I am expiriencing major culture shock. I have been fairy shelterd my entire life. Throughout my teenage years my parents have done...

    Sick Of Sexism Towards Women

    I cannot abide it, it makes me angry just thinking about the fact that there are still men out there who view women a second class citizens or even slaves who only exist to do their chores. While women may have physical differences, I believe they are as mentally capable as any...

    A Protector, Not An Abuser

    Men were supposed to protect women. Long ago, men became stronger because then they could protect women and get food and build houses so they could secure a mating opportunity. But after a while men thought that they could just bash women into doing whatever they didn't want to...

    Sexism is despicable

    and has to stop! You heard right! This applies to both males and females. I find it rather mean, nasty, unfunny that people discriminate against and/or make in front of the opposite gender. Yes, we are different. Some males can be silly, jerky and be a complete Muppet at times...

    Is Our Society Becoming Sexist Toward Men?

    My girlfriend and I were having a discussion about gender politics. I put forth the idea that in an effort to empower women culturally (to correct for their restricted roles throughout the forties, fifties and sixties) our pop culture has basically “over-corrected” in favor...

    A fun fact about women: Everybody was

    once a woman. Everybody develops female sex organs during the early stages of pregnancy. During the later stages, the sex organs either stay female, or develop into male sex organs. Above all, there is no proof that the X chromosome is dominant to the Y chromosome, and for...

    It's everywhere. In every book, magazine, ad, commercial, movie, story, song. Women are always being degraded and based on prejudices. So are men. But not as much. Women aren't supposed to be smart, strong, or successful. They are supposed to be sex toys. A thing that a guy uses...

    Sexist Things That Bother Me

    When people (not just men) think that a woman's body and face is all she is. We are taught at a young age that the most important thing is to be thought of as pretty or sexy. A body is just a shell. You are your mind, thoughts and feelings too. Aspiring to be physically beautiful...

    I hate it when people pull little facts

    that are untrue from non credible sources for their argument just because it fits their opinion. Not everything you hear is true. Challenge it, think deeper about what factors it is missing, or if they are credible at all anyways. Research on your own.

    Why It Costs More To Be A Woman

    It's expensive to be a woman in this country. Collectively, we fork over $426 billion a year on our hair, nails, and beauty products. But glamour aside, for services that we all need - like insurance, housing and healthcare, - women are still paying more than men. I tapped Lea...
