Often we have heard about sexism in media and all of the sexism that we hear in media is one-sided; sexist language affecting women adversely. Till date we haven’t heard of sexist language that affects men adversely.
So, does that mean that we don’t have anti-male sexist language? And the answer to the question is both a Yes and a No.
Yes, because we do have many such instances wherein sexist anti-male language has been uttered, propagated and accepted socially as well.
No, because mainstream media and society does not consider such language to be sexist. So, what is missing is the recognition of such anti-male language and the content as “being sexist”.
