I don’t see any sexism, do you see any sexism??

Sometimes I feel like sexism is getting worse, then I realized this is just the force of a powerful media tool. After all, I suffered a lot of this stuff in the past, but there was no place to publish it; it just happened, and everyone involved laughed it off (except me). Social media is allowing us to get attention for the ordinary, everyday sexism we’ve all lived so long. At least I feel less alone in it all.
