  1. I really liked the blog post. But……. what’s blatantly apparent to me is that when men say this kind of stuff, people listen. But when a woman says it, not so much.

  2. Thanks for sharing. I am not hit by misogyny in a long time. I used to be a lot when I was in the working world. It always amazed me that so many men thought they were entitled to so much. Now I’m surrounded by so many pro-feminist men in my life, it really surprises me when I’m faced with it. How can these wonderful men be this way, and these other men…including my father, be so sexist? It’s so sad. Why can’t we all just get along?

    I learned a lot from this blog post that had nothing really to do with the main story.
    One thing he said about addressing people by gender neutral pronouns until you know…I thought, what are gender neutral pronouns? I actually looked it up. It said using “they”. I grew up when they used “he” as gender neutral. “They” is plural. I have always hated seeing “they” used as a singular pronoun….now I guess it’s it is proper. And I’ve used it myself, when I didn’t know, and thought I was really bad grammar. English is an odd language.
    I have *Trans friends but I’ve always known which pronouns to use. (guess I should have asked one of them what to do in cases when I didn’t know, I shouldn’t just assume by looks)
    And I’d never heard of cisgender…I had to look that up.

    I haven’t been taking the time recently to read blog posts, but I’m glad I read this during one of my breaks today.
    I learned a lot….and found a great writer.
