Discrimination based on gender. Both men and women can be victims of sexism.
1. A woman may be paid less than a man for doing the same job is an old example of sexism.

2. A man may be required to sign up fight for his country/be drafted while a woman is not.

3. A man who has sex with many women may be admired by other men, while a woman who has several sexual partners is labelled a 'slut' or a 'whore.'

4. No matter what their relative incomes, some women expect a man to pay for everything on a date, rather than paying for themselves, splitting the bill at dinner, etc.

An archaic word occasionally mis-used to describe people, places and things from Scotland. This use of 'Scotch' is actively disliked by people from Scotland itself. Scottish or Scots should be used instead, with the exception of a few ingrained words or phrases, most notably in the case of certain food and drink items.
Acceptable: Scotch Broth, Scotch Beef, Scotch (Whisky.)

Not Acceptable: "Hey dude, are you Scotch!? We visited an awesome Scotch castle when we were on vacation!"
