This is from last week, but it’s an a propos post, considering I’m at GHC this week:
It’s great that Wallent’s colleagues are being so supportive, but I find it hard to believe that he won’t have to experience plain old sexism once he’s completely transitioned. I find that, more often than not, men– being, you know, men– think that it’s never as bad as women say and that we all live in more of a meritocracy than we really do.
Except, of course, when it comes to affirmative action. How convenient.
