Do you know what sexism is? If not, then be sure to read our article today. For those who are familiar with this concept, it will also be useful to dig a little deeper into the common manifestations of sexism, because often we do not even pay attention to them. For example, men are increasingly repeating the phrase: "All women are whores."

What are others doing at such a moment? Most often they are simply silent. Many people fully support this dirty and unjustified stereotype. Only a few women and men enter into controversy in order to understand the offensive generalization.

In general, it is not for nothing that feminist views on life have become so widespread today. How many girls face aggressive attacks in their direction, supported only by thoughtless stereotypes against the background of gender.

If the blonde, then definitely dumb. If you put a woman behind the wheel of a car, then you will definitely expect trouble. A monkey with a grenade - this is how girls who drive a vehicle are often called. Moreover, it does not matter at all that she, perhaps, copes with this task better than most men.

In general, the topic is quite painful and serious. We recommend that you think about your own views on life and maybe change them as soon as possible. Sexism is an obstacle to building harmonious relationships, creating a family and raising children as full members of society.

Surprisingly, even the belief that a woman is by nature her potential mother is considered by many experts to be a manifestation of sexism. If you think a little on this topic, it is really not difficult to agree.

It is customary to perceive a woman as a kind of repository of the racial gene pool. If it is created by nature with the possibility of reproduction of offspring, then this is its main function in society. At the same time, girls who consciously decide not to bear children are condemned by our society. What if she can't give birth? Health opportunities are different for everyone. Some get pregnant and give birth almost every year, while others are not given this function. In this case, questions like: "When will you have children?" can hurt or insult the lady.

It is strange that in modern Russia the presence of a nanny for a child is still considered to be something out of the ordinary. After all, a woman who has given birth to a child is simply obliged to educate him to adulthood, do homework together, and attend meetings. Imagine that in today's Russia, girls have every right to choose what role they play.

If she is successful and strong in her professional activity, then there is nothing wrong with using the services of professional nannies, help from relatives. The situation when a man goes on maternity leave is also normal. Yes, this is quite rare. But don't push the pedal of motherhood so hard that families feel embarrassed about their own choices.

In this sense, things are practically the same as with the obligatory role of the mother. Although now there really is a positive trend in which the girl works, and family responsibilities are proportionally divided between the spouses.

The adherents of the patriarchal structure of family life look at such a situation with reproach, sometimes they even show aggression and allow themselves to make claims to women. Indeed, a few hundred years ago, female representatives were mainly engaged in housework and raising offspring. However, when they were allowed to receive a decent education, work on equal terms with men, do business and politics, household chores faded into the background.

Just assess the situation: the girl works in the office as a chief accountant. She has a lot of professional questions and tasks. The day is scheduled literally in seconds. What can we say about the time of tax reports. The working day can become irregular. And at home, a sexist husband is waiting for her, who believes that the woman's role is to wash the dishes and cook five courses for dinner.

Such a model of marital relations is maximally defective. A woman herself can make a choice in favor of a home or a career. It is foolish to believe that in the twenty-first century, a successful girl will torment herself with a million diverse tasks.

If she earns money on an equal basis with her man, then everyday issues are divided between partners on the basis of a common agreement, or delegated to third parties. Fortunately, there are now a lot of services for the delivery of tasty and healthy food, cleaning agencies, repair teams. It is not even necessary to visit a supermarket - food delivery in many stores is carried out after ordering via the Internet.

In general, there are a lot of opportunities to free yourself from tedious housework and constant cooking at the stove. If you are faced with the sexist belief that a woman has to be a housekeeper, fight for your rights. Personal space, like personal boundaries, needs to be defended and protected from the very beginning of a relationship. Cases when women acquired depression and nervousness due to fatigue from a thousand and one worries are not at all uncommon. The golden rule is you have you and that's what matters.


Oh, how often phrases come out of the lips of decent-looking men with the only meaning: "All women are whores." Perhaps it is difficult to imagine more sexist judgments. A woman is perceived as a sexual object and does not even hide their flawed opinion.


It's good that in the modern world, girls cease to be silent. Just recently, a large-scale campaign was launched in America to expose harassment in the professional and any other activities of women. Many top actresses have openly stated that they were harassed by crew members, screenwriters and eminent directors during movie production.

Revelations were so loud that show business sexists experienced disastrous consequences not only in their careers, but also in all other spheres of life.

In Russia, too, they begin to cover spicy topics. Most of the statements are made by journalists. Although a few fiery speeches were made by female politicians.

The fact is that such infringements of rights must be suppressed. If a man says that women are whores, try to find out what is the reason for this opinion. Speak in defense, try to give arguments. But remember that ardent sexists can behave aggressively and simply not accept different opinions.

The offended men who could not bear the blows of fate in relations with previous partners speak about the fact that all women are whores. Sometimes people become sexist from unrequited love or teenage failures. In general, people tend to shift the blame for what is happening to others. It is much easier for a guy to declare the low moral foundations of a pretty girl than to admit his fiasco and move on with his head held high.


It is disgusting that in many countries, violence against a woman is not punishable by law. That is, husbands are allowed to beat and rape their wives for their subjective attitude to certain deeds and actions.

The perception of a woman as a sexual object, the position of an uneducated and unreasonable person. A self-sufficient successful man will never declare that the function of a woman is to come to the bedroom on time and silently perform marital duty.

Hidden sexism

Have you ever wondered about the generally accepted rules of man's behavior towards women? It turns out that giving up a seat on public transport, giving a lady a hand, opening a door for a lady are also signs of sexism and inequality.

Representatives of the feminist community argue that it is necessary to abandon such norms of etiquette, as it shows men that they are more powerful. Few people want to agree to the cancellation of pleasant gestures in their address.

It's scary to talk about hidden sexism in humor. Jokes about stupid blondes have already become a national property. On the topic of women's stupidity and irrationality, a thousand and one programs have been filmed, like the program "One for All", where silly girls with silicone lips and busts (Chris and Angie) constantly find themselves in funny situations due to "typically female thinking."

In fact, women are also successful in complex industries, where it is necessary to work with numbers and complex drawings. Girls play football, sometimes even better than men's teams. The fairer sex becomes drivers of construction equipment and public transport. The point is that jokes provoke sexists into their thoughts and beliefs.

After watching entertaining shows on top Russian channels, any feminist will be horrified. Jokes are not that below the belt. Some comedians allow themselves too much and offend a huge number of smart and wealthy girls with their caustic phrases.

Reverse sexism2

Perhaps only reverse sexism can be worse than standard sexism on the part of men. Women can also have sexist beliefs about other ladies. Often, they do not admit to themselves that they are experiencing similar problems.

However, women are much more likely to complain about each other. How often do we hear that working in a female team is like a snake ball. And this popular opinion was not invented by men.

Even the disgusting stereotype that all women are whores are supported by women quite actively. In front of men, or other ladies, sometimes they slip into the conversation discussing the impious neighbor Natasha from the fifth floor, who in her 25 is not married, has not given birth and changes boyfriends once a week.

Why are men allowed to be bachelors, and a woman who chooses one single companion from a variety of partners is always to blame? Girls themselves impose many sexist beliefs on men. This is scary, because as a result, the situation will always turn around and forgive you.

Purposeful humiliation in the female team is not uncommon. In the school community, guys solve issues with dialogue, at least with the use of physical force. Girls are more cunning and bitchy. From an early age, some lean towards intrigue, gossip and unconfirmed clichés.

As a result, we have guys who listen to all women's conversations, conclude that a woman is an unreasonable creature capable of treachery and meanness. At this time, the first love happens to many. As a result of the breakup, the guy will explain to himself the reason simply: she is a girl, this was to be expected. As a result, we ourselves put an unhealthy attitude towards women into the young heads of boys.

Have you been looking for a word for a long time that denotes female meanness and humiliation addressed to another female representative? So this is how it exists. Misogyny among women undermines the ability to build an equal civil society. If this phenomenon is not defeated, does not disappear from the face of the Earth, then sexism will go hand in hand with it to the end.

Women should carefully analyze what is happening around. Indeed, the boomerang mechanism works. Just yesterday, you and your husband discussed the stupidity of his friend's new girlfriend, her unwillingness to devote herself entirely to household chores, and refusal from unwanted sex.

You can get a response tomorrow. As soon as you refuse to cook borsch, citing poor health, you should know that he will remember all the words spoken to that girl. Your weapon can hit you. And, even worse, it will affect the upbringing of children.

The worst thing parents can do is tell their daughter from an early age about her destiny as a woman. Studies have shown that girls who have been indoctrinated with their secondary role achieve significantly worse results than those in whose families harmony and equality reigned.
