Why acknowledging sexism (even inadvertent sexism) is important

    Let me clarify what I meant by that. You (the universal "you") are absolutely entitled to your own opinion about something, but you are not entitled to project it on to me. A thread full of men talking about whether or not a women should be offended by something is unproductive. As a women, and frankly as an individual, I and I alone own how I feel and react to something. And if you look back at the other threads, there were some pretty toxic comments made by men about how I should feel (and suggesting that something is wrong with me if I feel otherwise)
