Sexism is Hard to Explain

Love this. My boyfriend thinks I’m “too sensitive” about men opening doors for women. Another aggression from yesterday: Walking down Market St. in San Francisco a few steps behind a tall white man. There is a homeless man in the middle of the street asking for money. The guy in front of me walks past him on the right and the homeless man swivels to ask him for change. The man doesn’t give him any and walks on silently. I go around him on the left, and he swivels to ask me the same thing — then when I also silently walk past, he yells “I bet you give that attitude to your boss, bitch.” Same situation and same actions from two people, except I happen to be a woman.
