Last year was I was in 1st grade of middle school and it was woman’s day. I think we had started chatting in history class about it (the teacher was female) and then a boy (good student, seemed good) said that women are mops( or something like that). I really couldn’t believe that he actually said that. It seemed ( and still seems) so stupid. If this happens in 1st grade of middle then what will happen in my next years of school? I am SO glad this website exists so that it can ( at least a little) prepare me for what’s waiting in the next years to follow. School will start in about a month. This year I will really try ( because I’m an introvert and shy and not very social) to stand up when people are being sexist.
