lawyers
A judge who thinks this way is not someone I would want presiding over any case involving sexism, violence against women, or rape.
books
"I thought, wouldn’t it be fascinating to have a girl whose sex is so devalued she has to be declared male to live? What would her story be to self-discovery and acceptance?"
army
Despite the amount of women now gracing the ranks of our proud military divisions, it is still, most certainly, a man’s world.

video games
C’mon everyone, one woman likes this game and can see beyond the problematic representation of these characters. Why can’t we ignore those aspects and enjoy the complexities the game has to offer?

uptalk
A lot of folks are very concerned lately that this habit is ruining our young women by making them sound like air-headed insecure simpletons. I strongly disagree.

religion
I was raised in a fundamentalist community that stood at the front of the battle lines of the ‘90s culture wars. Cameron’s description of matrimonial bliss is all too familiar.

fake geek girls
As much as I enjoy eyeing nerdy dudes in the buff, I'm just not sure how effective "reverse sexism" is at changing people's minds.
phones
What's most odious to me is when I see a tech pundit go on about how women don't or shouldn't like large screen phones because our hands are small. Seriously, I see red.

COME SEE THE PAX MUSEUM OF DIVERSITY! BOGGLE at people's use of ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY! Ask whatever questions you’d like of a REAL LIVE GENDER NONCONFORMIST!

My main concern with BusinessWeek's grossly framed, woman-penned article about the psychology of female 'bitchiness' is that it might deter future research on a worthwhile topic.
time
sexism
To suggest that even the mom cave is a place where women are essentially expected to do what they do all the time already is...rather odd.

Can I please leave the house without being forced to endure yet another fancy strip show?

street harassment
For some men, any woman is fair game. And depending on who they are, what they look like, and where they fall on the socioeconomic spectrum, standing their ground could prove deadly.
medicine
Women are dying of strokes, myocardial infarction, and other serious medical conditions all because they show up to the doctor's “looking healthy” and wearing nice clothes.
work
I was especially bored of Matthew parading me around his clients (all male, natch) and introducing me as his marketing guru, when in fact, I would spend my days at work scrolling the Facebook timeline to infinity.
