A friend just forwarded this page to me. Thank you! You very clearly present a point I’ve been making to folks for years. (Yes, I use “folks” all the time, too.) Sexism is so engrained in our culture that we often don’t see it. I’ll be forwarding this to lots of folks! And, to be honest, it helps to have a man making this point. I know some people dismiss me as “just a feminist” when I talk about use of language and sexism. While I know many other men who would agree with you, it’s good to have a well-presented argument written by a man to show that it’s not “just” women who think about this. Again, thanks!
