A term normally quoted by feminism.

It's used when a woman/male is pressured in a social situation to say or act in some way based on their gender.
When we say that boys are not supposed to cry because they are males, it's sexism.

If a woman is expected to clean the dishes, but not a male of his same age, it's sexism.

"Tomorrow I will meet my new doctor; I hope he is friendly."
Since the speaker hasn’t met the doctor, how can the speaker know the doctor is HE? This kind of assumption can be regarded as sexism in Language.

Men have to live by the rules women invent, but women don't.
Sexism: When a man leaves a woman after 25 years, that's "abandonment', but when a woman leaves a man after one, that's "moving on with her life"; when a man has a fantasy involving two women, that's "perverted", but when a woman has a fantasy involving a man and a horse, that's "romantic".

Something that usually results from human beings assuming that just because they or someone they know has a certain quality, everyone else in that certain gender has it too.
"My girlfriend is frigid, therefore all girls must be."

"My ex boyfriend is a dick, therefore all men must be."

"The only well-known brilliant people in history are men, therefore women musn't have the ability to be brilliant."

"I can talk heaps more easily to the girls I know than to the boys I know, therefore all boys must be emotionally stunted."

(sexism resulting from self centred assumptions)

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.
