Sometimes we talk about how the media and sports and such are so sexist, but sometimes the everyday breed of sexism can be the most hurtful. It's how random people on the street ask young girls on their own why they aren't smiling as if there were not a care in the world, it's how the occasional PE teacher will separate students into groups of strength based on gender, it's these things and more that build the sexist world we live in today. I like to believe that the two sexes started out equal, and were that way for a while, but then it started getting worse, when because of their job, and I believe their job was sufficient, and not demeaning, but then that made them seem weak to the men, which is what started sexism. I think that it probably got steadily worse and worse over time, and then, fairly recently, in the grand scheme of things, it started getting better. I think that the only thing stopping us from complete equality for men and women is the few men in high positions who are extremely sexist, plus the millions of women who don't believe in themselves, and who think men are better, plus, and this is a very big reason, some men see feminism as either a threat to their manliness, some men see it as attacking the male gender, others just don't want women to be their equals because, for whatever reason, they believe themselves to be superior.
Some of these images are from a while ago, but the ones from the Google searches are really powerful, and really speak to this day and age. So this slide kind of speaks to what I've been saying about sexism through the ages, but I am now thinking that, maybe some of the things we thought were gone are really only in disguise. Think about what you can do to reveal and stop them.
