There's a link with each item - but I'll make you go to the original post for those.

The "Sexism" item? I grew up in the sixties, and have had my fill of the chronically affronted - on all sides. Still, that post, from SFGate, complete with culturally-normative photo, has a point.

I've run into that sort of thing: from my "office girl" incident to the time an electrician wouldn't talk to my wife.

But those are both (each?) another topic.
A tip of the hat to williamcooks, on Twitter, for the heads-up on that post.
