I’ve had a few people tell me that calling out sexism when it happens isn’t that easy and that I don’t know what I’m talking about. Let me show an example.
At first I didn’t want to bring this up because I think the man who wrote this on his blog thought, “Wow, Brooke and Sharon are getting a lot of attention and traffic, I bet if I write about it, I will get traffic to my website too!”
I decided I would just take a screenshot to avoid sending people to his site. Please don’t go over and tell him he’s doing it wrong, he just wants the traffic. But I do feel I need to put my money where my mouth is:
A guy (writing an article about how I don’t get how hard women have it when comes to getting a respectable job in birding no less) being purposely misleading about what I do for a living and being dismissive of my years of hard work and experience doing it…THAT is sexist.
