Hi all--I have seen a lot of talk regarding sexism recently in the atheist blogosphere.  Here is my stab at it.  Is Sexism Subjective?

Not PZ's.  I meant on my blog, www.reason-being.com  I will have to check out his blogs on sexism though.  Thanks for the tip.

Do you read PZ Myer's blog?

If not, check out any of his blog posts on sexism, …he has it nailed down.

I had a waaayyyy... longer reply that I just shortened to what I posted here. The problem with this one is the "perceived offense" bit, without a clear example, it's hard to nail it down. 

Dammit! I did it again, …went on a rant/digression and had to delete it all.

(sigh)

Thanks Steph.  It seems us three are in agreement then.  I have learned, that not everyone agrees (at least on reddit)

Good discussion here -- I would agree with Richard. Sexism in not subjective.

Thanks for the comment Richard.  I think we are in agreement.I didn't even mention the implied position of privilege, but that is a good point.

I would love it if you had time to leave that comment on my blog to further discussion with the folks there and the people from here who also read it.

Without a specific example, I'm going to say -> No

It's the implied position of privilege that makes sexism an objective idea, not perceived "offense/in-offense".
