My roommates have been without hot water for over a year. When I moved in, I contacted the landlord about this problem. When he finally showed up to the apartment after 6 weeks, he told me the problem was my fault because I had not made a key for the super. When I mentioned that was his job, the landlord blatantly said he did not mean to be chauvinistic, but that the men who live in my apartment would know what to do. He then told me I ask too many questions, and that the men should email him about the problem. To make matters worse, my roommates tried to convince me his comments weren’t sexist.
