Controlling of gender roles

Women do not generally see men as caring and sensitive.

Clothing plays an important role in defining us. Women can wear dresses, skirts, trousers, men must not, ever, wear dresses or skirts… well, they can, but only so that women can watch these drag queens in the evening, in order to make themselves feel more comfortable in their role in life as “women”, in just the same way as men tell sexist jokes when they do comedy, but hey, don’t worry about that, women being sexist is all O.k.

Opening up as being trans has highlighted to me that women have a strong passive permitted sexism.
