Whenever I have a discussion about feminism and/or sexism with guys, I fail at the point at which I say that women are GENERALLY in a weaker position then men BECAUSE THIS IS HOW OUR SOCIETY WORKS and they simply don’t believe me.
How can I explain it to them? How?
How can I make them SEE what they don’t WANT to see?
- Employer: So, do you have any experience in sales?
- Me: I once sold oregano to some middle schoolers who thought it was pot.
You can tell a girl she’s smart her whole life, encourage her in school, buy her a chemistry set, send her to math camp, help her apply for college scholarships in STEM fields, and she’s still eventually going to walk into a classroom, a lab, or a job interview and have some man dismiss her existence, deny her funding, pass her over for a promotion, or take credit for her work. How about you work on getting those assholes out of power and quit telling me not to call girls pretty.
