it's not often when i get an anxiety attack. but to have an anxiety attack brought on by a person's opinion is just horrid.
seeing that the guy said that it was ok that women make $.75 for every dollar a man makes. and that women are weaker, dumber, and more emotional so they should make less money because we aren't capable of running countries or corparations. (ignore the fact that lots of countries have had women presidents, companies have women presidents, a woman supreme court judge, and lots of female senators. my hands started shaking and my heart was pounding so hard after i heard this. he then said that being a senator doesn't matter. .. so he basically said that men who are senators don't matter either. IGNORE THE FACT THAT THEY RUN 1/3 OF OUR GOVERMENT. i told him that because of people like him, women are going to have to forever struggle and that he's just made it that much harder for his sisters, mother, and future daughters.
i swear to god, it makes no sense to me why anyone, especially someone of colour, would advocate any form of discrimination. if you allow a slice of discrimination, then i believe you advocate for all discrimination. if you hate women and you believe that the discrimination against women is fine. Then someone who hates south american ethnicities should say that discrimination against them is fine. its the same thing. hate is hate.
that shit ain't cool.
especially after the first day of class when my teacher went into a lengthy talk about discrimination.
