Passive aggressive sexism is something going unnoticed in society today. Many males believe holding the door open for a women who they find attractive is chivalrous, but by doing this the male is being sexist in thinking the woman needed his help opening the door. He asserted dominance over her. Men need to understand that women need their space; boys cannot enter that space without the female’s consent. "Microaggressions" are less conscious actions that are harmful to minorities or marginalized people. For example, when a teenage boy tell his best bud he “throws like a girl” he is implying women and girls are not as good at sports than men and that is offensive to the female gender. Another example would be a hetero couple arguing loudly inside of the local Mcdonalds, the argument begins to escalate and it seems as if the women is in danger. A male steps in and defends the woman. This man may have thought he was doing a good deed, but by defending the woman without her permission he assumed she could not defend herself. Women are not some delicate flower that need to be shielded from everything. Women do, however, need to be respected. Males need to wait for women to ask for help. People should be kind to everyone regardless of gender.
