Sexism is Hard to Explain
Kel Campbell

There’s no doubt what you say is true, and yet I’ve often been struck by the attitudes of some of my self-professed feminist friends who expect me to open doors for them or upbraid me for not walking on the street side of the sidewalk, say I’m not a gentleman. I dated a strongly feminist woman who never once in two years offered to pick up a dinner check, or even say thank you (good manners, not sexism). There’s a lot of work on both sides yet to be accomplished, (yes men have the furthest to go by far) and it could be that our cultural prejudices will take a long time to die if ever fully. My point is that it can be difficult to be a male feminist when my female “feminist” friends still expect me to play a gender role.
