I was exploring BuzzFeed today, as I usually do when I’m bored, and came across this cool article about women who shared their experiences with sexism, and how they overcame it/their comebacks. One woman, for example, was sassed by a man in line for coffee who saw she was wearing a Bioshock Infinite shirt, and remarked “she probably hadn’t even played the game.” The best part was, not only had she played it, she designed it, and proceeded to take out all her official documents naming her as the designer and the five-figure sum she was paid for the job. This article not only uplifted me, but made me think about what I can say the next time someone makes a remark about my appearance or the fact that I’m a woman.
Does anyone disagree with any of these women’s reactions? Did some take it too far, or not enough?
