A reader is looking for advice on how she can handle sexism in public, sometimes semi-anonymous spheres — i.e., where you can’t pull the individual aside to have a discussion:
I would like to get advice and your opinions on something that I’ve been struggling with.
On social networks like twitter and facebook there are always jokes about women e.g. Why did the woman cross the road, no wait, why isn’t she in the kitchen?!
I know they are pretty rubbish jokes but I always try to say why their wrong. However they just come straight back at me with another joke. It’s so frustrating! I don’t know what to do next, please can I have your help/advice/opinion?
Ideas? What do you all do?
