If a guy starts saying what you are doing is ‘reverse sexist’, he is obviously threatened by what you are doing. He’s threatened because he thinks there are only two ways to be: powerful or powerless. He assumes you asserting your rights is a way to take power away from him. He assumes you wanna ‘switch places’ with him. He knows you get treated like shit and he knows he gets advantages from your imposed inferiority. He’s fearing REVENGE, girlfriend. His fear of ‘reverse sexism’ is basically an admission on his part that he knows you get treated like shit and does not want to switch places with you.
A lot still needs to happen for things to be equal. Women still don’t earn as much as men. Women’s place in most industries has been overshadowed and rewritten by men in a sense that we’re seen as nurturers and muses and not inventors in our own right. I’d like to see more women in positions of power who get to decide on behalf of other women. As in the case of abortion, there is mostly men who preside over this and it seems weird to me that men get to decide what women should do with their bodies. I don’t think they’d like it if it were reversed.
