How To Respond to Sexists

Recently the Every Day Sexism project asked its participants to chronicle their favorite put-downs against pickup artists, cat callers, harasses, and just flat-out sexists in general. If you’d like a laugh, some of them are pretty excellent.

A few favorites:

“A woman’s place is in the kitchen” you know what you’re right. Lemme grab a knife.

Two French men on tube discussing me in Fr: “She’s far too tall [6’+] for a woman”. Me: “Oui, elle parle français en plus”

Bloke: ‘you’re a bit too thin for me’. Me: ‘that’s lucky because you’re a bit too thick for me’.

A man once pointed out loudly that I have huge boobs. I looked down at them and screamed like I’d never noticed them before
