I mean, sexism and misogyny have always bothered me. I've written plenty of articles about how law and media intersect with being a woman. But now... post-rape, I feel like everything sexist is so much more personal. I notice more.
For example, I went to a Christmas party yesterday (yes, I managed to get out of the house). It was a house party with my boyfriend's coworkers--and somewhat of an odd dynamic. Gabe is a public school English teacher. The department chair is a woman, Elizabeth, and she invited everyone over for a holiday party at her home. "Everyone" really meant Elizabeth's best friend Monica, a group of male teachers, and their female attachments.
As an aside, all of these teachers are white. They also teach for the poorest, most "ethnically diverse" (read: Black and Hispanic) school in the county. That's another issue altogether.
At any rate. after eating (boys first to the buffet, as always), the eight male teachers crowded around the TV. There weren't any chairs left in the living room, so Elizabeth, Monica, one of the teachers' fiancees Samantha, and myself were left in the kitchen.
At one point, one of the guys wanted to flip the channel. He called to Elizabeth, who was a whole room over, to grab him the remote that was literally a foot away from him.
