Not anymore.
Though when I was in second grade when girls tended to hate the boys and boys tended to hate the girls I was.
Now I really don't give.

Girls can't do math.

Not really, my mom is, how do say, really into feminism. So I'm sure I'm not going to be one of those husbands that expects his wife to cook every meal him.

Of course when I was really young I though boys were better than girls, because, obviously, girls have cooties.

I'm going to admit that I say sexist things. I also say stereotypical things but it's just for fun and games and I only say it around my friends and family. Mainly because they know I'm joking with them. Never in a place that no one knows me or on the interent of course.

Well, I don't think so, not to anyone, ever. Although I probably have. But I don't think so. People act in their own individual way *shrugs*. Although, something I find funny is if this thread was called "are you racist?" it would be closed in seconds. Hmm.

Just as black people are black.

"I am only attracted to girls." :P

I used to be terrible in 2nd and 3rd grade. The cooties and such was really top priority for every boy, but now if I pass a sexist comment, it's purely in the form of a joke.

I was once sexist to some degree in elementary school because of the whole "battle of the sexes in gym class dodgeball" thing going on (not anymore though), but then again, who wasn't at that period of their life?

If I ever make a sexist joke to begin with most of my female friends find it funny, just the same as when my black friends make racist jokes about white people, where I'm the white guy in question, and I find it funny. That being said, humor within a close group of friends who know you personally and will understand where you're coming from is usually the only appropriate time to make such remarks.

I'm not sexist, because it's pointless. Just because it doesn't deal with somone's race, doesn't mean that it's not bad.

I feel as though everyone should exclude gender roles from their lives completely. Everyone has the right to be who they want, but they should still be a little more concerned about how they affect other people.

Last time I looked in the mirror, I saw brown skin.

I try not to be sexist, but sometimes it can't be helped. The fact of the matter is we live in a sexist world. Of course I don't say things like "women are meant only to maintain the house," but I do believe there are certain things normal men can do things better than normal woman and vice versa.

I'm not a sexist, I'm chivalrous. This means that no matter what, I'm always willing to stop and hold the door for a woman. I'm always more polite to women.
Naturally, I've been accused of being sexist by flaming feminists because of that, but I just tend to ignore women like that.

Naturally, being of the chivalrous nature...I do tend to feel that there are some things guys can usually do better. But that doesn't mean I'd ever say a woman is incapable of doing something because guys are stronger/faster/whatever. Though I would say that they might find certain tasks to be more challenging.

I am an anti-sexist and I wait for the day when everything will be equal.
I also try to make people understand that, male and female can be equally skilled in anything.
It's just the way you grow up that builds you differently.

I will happily answer to arguments about who's better, until everything is balanced.

Anyway, I'm not sexist. I feel that it is pointless and stupid, just as other discriminations mentioned. I do, however, throw sexism back at whoever uses it at me. Taste of their own medicine, in some cases, I suppose? It's the south, so I have to do that a lot. ;/

I.. used to say really sexist things.

This (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showpost.php?p=2386350&postcount=702) and this (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showpost.php?p=2386859&postcount=710) are probably the most sexist posts I've made. I based my opinions set on stereotypes from the TV, and therefore my views were really distorted. In reality, I had no knowledge of the real world so to speak, so I accepted what the TV said as true.

Also, this (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=146577) thread I found really sexist originally and kept trying to think of ways to get it closed (the part that I found sexist was that the females had to lower the score, implying lower power, while males enlargened the power, when really it was due to my stupidity).

However, I've noticed that things in society are changing for the better for women. In the local newspaper, I read that there will be a female commentator in the AFL (which is a huge step for them), so it's showing how the rights of both men and women are becoming equal. This means that there is no reason to be sexist, as the world is slowly accepting that men and women are equal; just not necessarily the same strength.

So overall, I'm not sexist, but if I was in the past, I'm changing that.

Evolution and other factors have made females statistically better at certain things than males, and vice-versa. (There are few ways to word a statement like that in a non-sexist manner, and I think I pulled it off.)

At any rate, I don't consider myself sexist. That doesn't, however, mean that I think there are no differences between the sexes. The key to being rational in this regard is too ignore the concept of sexism and prejudice entirely. That means not presuming that a female will be worse at something because she's female, but it also means not presuming that a female will be better at something for fear of being called sexist.

It is important for us to know what the differences between the genders are, and stereotypes aren't the place to go to learn them. For example, whenever I hear anyone say that men are inherently better at academics than women, I just roll my eyes, because my personal observations in the matter indicate the exact opposite.

Although, men are generally stronger then women. Course, there are exceptions but "generally"... This isn't the same in every species, other animals often have tanky chicks 'n scrawny dudes. Although, I can't back any of this up :> I have no com access and no Wii keyboard.
Just going off my bad memory and documentaries I might've seen?

Anyway, the diffrences shouldn't classify what can and can't be done by either gender.

Dusclord
January 11th, 2009, 08:31 AM
Men are different from women since they have the Y chromosomes ;_;

Then they both have the same rights, any behavior difference is only due to the education mostly influenced by a religious-fixed culture which says that women must have childrens => give them a maternal behavior => etc.

I can be be very sexist sometimes... I'd really like to be a man, really x)

Yes, I totally am. There IS a smarter sex. There IS a stronger sex. Feminism has ruined the world by doubling our taxes. If Hitler's mother was nicer to him, do you think he would have turned out the same way? I know I'll get flamed for this, but it's the truth.

Actually Hitler had a very good relationship with his mother, it was his father that beat him and abused him. Make sure you actually know what your talking about before you post an accusation like that.

I know I'll get flamed for this

Boys aren't better than girls, but boys do better than girls. At times, I've almost given up my dreams of becoming a writer because female writers aren't taken seriously... But, well, then I come to my senses again. I can write under a male pseudonym if nothing else works :laugh:

But, yeah, although men aren't any better than women or vice versa, it's a fact that males can do better in life more easily than females. I mean, most of the government and parliament of my country are men, most of the big business presidents are men, and so on. But who chooses the parliament? Half of the voters are women, yet they still don't vote for their own sex. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I just wonder why it is so. Maybe we have been brought up into believing men are better leaders or just overall more convincing than women. Or maybe it's in our genes somehow?

Women do have it easier than men in athletics, though I don't wish to make a point out of it. It is a little annoying that I'm throwing a 1.75kg discus to a woman throwing 1.00kg. =/ I reiterate that it proves nothing, but I do wish to state such a fact.

Yes I am sexist.
Mostly in a defensive way, though.
As in, the other day a girl came in late and said, "Yeah, our car was bumped by another lady's car."
Then a male classmate of mine, no surprise, had to put in his two cents in the form of saying something along the lines of: "See? That's because women suck at driving."
I then turned to him and said, "If it was a guy, he wouldn't have stopped."

I just get mad (infuriated *cough cough*) when males put down girls that I begin putting down the members of the opposite sex. It's just how it works for me.

I don't even know why it does ^.^ Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that women tend to be more verbally aggressive and boys physically?
I'm not saying that I'm sexist against all guys just because they're guys and I feel I'm "superior"... I just think less of guys who make sexist comments.

I know i know WTF might be your answer but i hate it if a guy who knows and hangs out with a girl for 5-6 years thinks its ok to tickle her or do stupid things involving her such as untieing there bikini. I mean if i were their boyfriend(girls not guys!) he would be in deep trouble. As somethings are only meant for those who are actually going out.

I don't know what planet you're from, but around here statistical averages aren't just dismissed as "generalizations." There's a reason why men and women compete separately in most sports and are graded on different standards in Physical Education: females are simply less likely to be physically strong than males. There's no disputing that men and women are biologically separated at the most fundamental level of life: DNA. You can't use exceptions to try and denounce a statistical and scientific norm.

This, of course, does not mean that males are inherently "better" than women, they're just different. Accepting diversity is not the same as saying "everyone is the same," because they're not. Men and women may be hardwired to do different things more easily, but they can still do almost anything that the other can do (childbirth being an obvious exception), even if their bodies are geared against it. Women can be great at sports, and men can be great at raising children, it just might not come as naturally or easily as the other way around.

Like icomeanon6 said, women and men are differnetly built (not to mention they have different roles in sociaty), therefor there are some differneces in how succesful they will be in given areas. Though that doesn't mean that one sex is better in general or that a women for example can't be a better athlete than a man or that a man can't be a better parent or more symphatetic or whatever than a woman. In the end, it's not about being a male or female but just being a person^^
