Yep you, yes you reading this. Your probability sexist. Though don’t get angry or indigent. I’m not making a character judgement, I’m not saying your bad people. What I’m saying if that you like me, and just about everyone has to some level been exposed to sexist ideas and thoughts that you’ve incorporated, unconsciously or consciously some sexist ideas. I know I have, I still sometimes struggle to make sure I take what a women’s word at the same level as a mans, it can be very easy to dismiss someones opinion unfairly simplely because they express as a woman. While I’ve improved dramatically over the last few years as I’ve realized all the times and ways women are suppressed in our society (and how I have too often played into it). I still have to look long and hard at some of my actions before I’m sure I’m not letting that particular bias slip in, and some times even though I try sexist biases slip in anyway.
So I’m not saying your a horrible person or hate women, but are you sure you’ve been looking hard at your actions? Are your sure your not playing into the systemic oppression of women (or other groups for that matter)?
We don’t have to be perfect, I know I’m not, but are we taking stock? Are we being introspective, critical of our own actions and thoughts?
