My male science lecturer at a very prestigious university told me I would get better grades if I “didn’t wear a bra”. The next day I came in without a bra and he removed me from the class because I dressed “provocatively”. As a disabled person of colour, I find this disgusting as this is still happening in 2017.
Title Examples of unconscious sexism
– Believing that, if women earn more doctoral degrees, men are discriminated against, but if women go less into STEM fields, it must be because of biological differences.
– Believing that all women’s successes are due to affirmative action, but that affirmative action discriminates against men.
– Dismissing any evidence of women being as less as being pseudoscience but immediately accepting any study proving women being biologically less inclined towards certain fields without criticism.
