How to identify ‘common sexism’:
Donald Trump just gave a master class on how to get away with sexism. “Step 1: Claim that the complaint is an exaggeration in order to imply that the complainant can’t be trusted…Step 2: Dismiss demands for respect and equality as mere ‘political correctness’…Step 3: Insist that this complaint is too minor to bother with when there are more important things to worry about…Step 4: Say it was just ‘fun’…Step 5: Pretend the complaint is really just about personal animosity.”
