Sex & Life July 24, 2018
One day, comments which women constantly hear throughout their lives, will be collected in a big-ass book of sexist remarks. And we’ll gladly beat up all the ignorant, closed-minded individuals that use these examples of sexism with this heavy book.
“Don’t be such a woman!”
“Can I speak to your husband?'”
“Ladies don’t do those things!”
“Is it that time of the month?”
“OH, so you are like really smart!”
Yes, sometimes such phrases are unintentional, but nonetheless, they’re disrespectful and hurtful.
Sexism takes all forms and shapes in the contemporary world. There’s cyber sexism, benevolent, ambivalent and hostile sexism. Sexism at school, workplace and at home. And it’s safe to say that there’s no woman on Earth that hasn’t heard a sexist remark about her appearance, intellectual abilities and life choices at least once.
The good news, though, is that woman are no longer afraid to be vocal and fight back in real life and online!
Check out these honest Tweets about examples of sexism experienced by women on a daily basis.

This post makes a great source for ideas on how to repel annoying men. Try reading an impressive volume of “War and Peace,” playing chess or knitting a cozy sweater in a public place and enjoy your quiet time.
Don’t be surprised, but many women actually knew that Germany was out of the World Cup. And no, not because husbands informed us or we overheard our teenage brother discussing it with his soccer coach.
Listen. Pal, if Germany changed their coach, tactics, and didn’t let other teams know they used their midfield to move the ball, perhaps they would’ve made it to the final.
Hey, is that your jaw on the floor? Assuming women don’t know sports is definitely an example of sexism.
Many of us can relate to this situation.
Dear men, please remember that we aren’t customer service. We’re allowed not to smile when we don’t want to.
At least he didn’t take her for a lunch lady. This is so sad.
This “older male student” should know better. He certainly deserves detention!
