(back in business) and some great comebacks to sexist comments/ everyday sexism
Apologies for radio silence. I have been moving my site around (to independent hosting) and installing wordpress.org. The way I said that, you would think that I had a clue what I meant. I don’t. My mate – who works in that industry (he’s a transponster) – did it for me. I just asked him every five minutes what was keeping him. He was delighted with me.
Anyway, this piece on the guardian has catalogued some great comebacks to sexist comments/ everyday sexism. The comeback were posted in tweets at the request of @EverydaySexism on twitter. Here’s one of them:
