Sexism against men

When we think of sexism we usually think of it being against women. Therefore my question is have you ever experienced sexism as a men? If you're a women, do you know anyone who has? Do you see it as a problem?

Yes of course - men can't wear whatever they like to work, they have to wear ''men-clothes'', while women can wear everything from a tie to a miniskirt.

I have seen on some occasions men get treated differently for the simple fact that they are men.

The bar scene and club life are examples. When trying to get in, men usually have a harder time because the male bouncer plays favoritism with the attractive females and almost seem to hate the males that would throw off the ratio.

Personally I have never been treated unfairly because of my sex, but I have seen that a lot of feminists think that men are the root of all evil in the world, and treat them negatively because of it.

I've been denied both denied a job and a promotion on the basis of my being in possession of a penis. So, yes, sexism against men does exist. But that isn't to underscore the more prevalent problem of sexism against women.

All forms of prejudice exists, but it's no big problem at the moment.

Yes women get 63% less time in jail i believe in equality if women want for us to be less sexist you have to understand that women fly under the radar in crime and punishment and have to understand that sexism happens with men and women http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JA4EPRbWhQ

I have never thought of sexism as simply discriminating against women. And because of this, I walk into debates with angry and hypocritical women who scream "sexism" at anything that is "disrespecting" to the expectations a woman has about anything in life, namely expectations of a man. This unfortunately leads to an ugly debate usually ending up with everyone calling me "sexist and ignorant of the struggle of women".

Sexism is not exclusively against women, it's about any sex. And it's time people realize that.

Well when ever I see a murder in a movie they show it is a man, I guess it isn't a big deal though

here is the biggest sexism against men. A 25 yr old guy has sex with a 15 yr old girl and he gets 25 to life in jail whereas a 25 yr old woman has sex with a 15 yr old boy and she gets probation if she is unlucky and nothing if she is lucky.

The concept that striking someone is somehow made better or worse only due to the sexes of those involved is ingrained into most of the developed world from early childhood. This is ridiculous; it has the effect of making a male bully who beats up a boy half his weight somehow 'better' than an untrained guy who, in attempting to defend himself from a female kickboxer, strikes her rather than just attempting (in vain) to evade and talk her down. This is not speculation; these are two actual cases I observed years ago in my own high school.

"Don't hit girls!" is ridiculous. How about "Don't hit people!" or better, "Don't use force to control people!"

Exists, and since it is a kind of discrimination, it is a problem.

I'm really sick of women complaining about "being left with the heavy stuff".

Bitch, nobody is keeping you from strengthening yourself, but you. So don't be trying to place that extra burden on us men just because you're a needy bitch.

Oh come on, as a feminist myself I have to just laugh at this shit.

Women just can't oppress men in the long run, sorry to say.

When feminists treat almost everything a male does as misogyny, then that is sexist. Anita Sarkeesian from feminist frequencies is a great example of how absurd feminists can be.

It would not be called sexism if it were only against women The definition of Sex is a gender sorry to say also involves men.

True, but sexism (or racism, etc) is only a problem if it is truly hurtful. Women do not have the institutional or social power as a group to systematically oppress men in this sociopolitical context. Hating a man because he is a man is clearly sexism, but it seems vulgar to call it a problem when women live in a world of constant and pervasive oppression and male privilege.

I agree. Sexism towards males exists, but because women don't possess the power of oppression in our world, it seems silly to complain about it.
