Hmmm

I had little or no internet access this week, I get home, and apparently there has been a lot of talk about sexism and whether or not it exists.

As a 52 year old woman who has been the first woman this or that in a small way, I must say, YES. Sexism exists.
Anyone who says otherwise is living in a dream world.

This has nothing to do with right or left.

There is a certain sexism towards men, too.

I don't have my picture on my blog because I am a 52-year-old woman and I really don't want to chase away what male readers I might have because I'm not a gorgeous blonde!

I work with a bunch of guys - my bosses all the way to the top of the ladder at my company are guys. They will swear that they treat women the same way they treat men.

They are blind, stupid and ignorant - at least when it comes to that.

They do not respect women like they do men. The pretty young women get promoted quickly until they marry and get pregnant, then they are stuck in that position forever. Forever.

Companies today will not let anyone know how much anyone else gets paid. I feel I'm being paid quite well, but for all I know, the guys are making twice what I make - they all drive BMW's, play a lot of golf and have personal trainers.

Of couse, I can shoot better than any of 'em. (a gun, that is).

Anti-male sexism exists in Family Courts - my friend, Dean, has had a lot to say about that through the past few years. And so has Trudy.

More on this later - I've only been back from DC for about an hour, and my beloved husband could probably use some loving.
