Feminism has been a huge talking point in the media over the last few years. Yes, as a society we have become increasingly concerned about eradicating sexism against women. But what we should never lose sight of is that at the very core of its definition, feminism is about equal rights between men and women. This means that we need to start addressing the areas where men are also treated unfairly.
So without further ado, here are some of the answers male Reddit users gave to the question “What examples of sexism do you face in your day to day life?”

1. Being vilified when in public with kids

“I spend a lot of time with family, and a lot of my family is young children. I’m in my mid-twenties, so when I walk around the mall with my pre-teen cousin I have people give me nasty looks and strangers ask her if she’s ok. I f**king hate people. It’s been like this since I was 16.”

2. It’s an unfair expectation

“OH YEAH LIKE I CAN OPEN EVERY JAR OF PICKLES.”

3. Men experience sexual harassment at work too

“Sexual harassment of guys in the workplace, while much much less common than harassment of girls, is shockingly prevalent and accepted particularly in environments with young guys and older women.”
