Some sexist tropes in The Martian
Sara Haider

There’s a throwaway “tell them their sisters are prostitutes” from Watney that – since we were driving the kids on a road trip, and listening to the audiobook – provided a teachable moment about misogyny.

When life gives you gratuitously sexist lemons, etc. etc.

Correction: The exact line is “Also, please tell them that each and everyone of their mothers is a prostitute. —Watney. P.S.: Their sisters, too.”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
