it's sexist to say that it's only sexist if a guy the one being sexist.

or something like that.

This particular thread and its silly tone, no, but there have been some rampaging political threads that have gotten a bit out of hand in the past. :) I'm afraid to explain in any more detail because if this thread is currently completely being silly and doesn't mean anything that it's saying, I don't want to trigger an actual flamewar! :)

Seriously though, not to derail the topic, but there are some situations (at least here in my country that I find sort of sexist.)

A good example is in the department store. Whenever you go into the section for men's underwear, they always have attractive young female attendants there. On the other hand, when you go into the women's intimate apparel section, they also have nothing but female attendants there. Where's the equality? :twisted:

How do you make your games? I see. Thank you for the prompt replies, but it is my considered opinion that you're doing it wrong inefficiently because I am a perfushenal professional. Do it my way this way and we can all ascend VN Nirvana together while allowing me to stroke my ego you will improve much faster. Also, please don't forget to thank me for this constructive critique or I will cry and bore you to death respond appropriately with a tl;dr rant discourse of epic adequately lengthy proportions. - Sarcasm Veiled in Euphemism: Secrets of Forum Civility by lordcloudx (Coming soon to an online ebook near you.)

Well a man standing in the women's underwear department would generally be labelled gay or perverted :)

I, for one, just live by "treat others how you would want to be treated, regardless of gender." Unless it makes them uncomfortable.

Some of us can't help it that we like our hair ruffled and our tummies rubbed.

Protip: Don't do that to random strangers. :D

I don't know the real reason or perhaps this is just the case in my country... but I think this is because women themselves wouldn't feel comfortable if the underwear store is attended by males (and I believe women are more suitable for the job anyway). How if they are perverts who loves to peek. How if they want to ask for advice on choosing the right underwear. And so on...

But yeah, sexism is still everywhere, I can't deny that.

One thing that I don't like is how males could ask for kids support/allowance (I don't know the exact English word for this). But basically, you get money for each kids you have (up to 3 and varied from country to country, like I believe China only allowed up to 1 kid). This type of support is only available for male workers (single parent or not) but there's none for female single parent whatever the reason. Oh, and male also have wife support/allowance while female don't have husband support/allowance...

Is it sexism for a girl to prefer fictional females to real females?

Also, in response to the department store thing: The women there are usually quite old too. I love little old ladies but I don't exactly like them taking my measurements... It feels weird.
