Hi Professor Early,
This resonated with me because I like how simply the definition of sexism is put. It made me realize that when talking about feminism and sexism, the blame and default is usually put on men, and they are seen as the enemy. By having a direct definition of sexism I think it opens up this topic to a broader audience, and gives people the opportunity to have a neutral conversation about this rather than automatically siding with women and being against men. Overall, I think this definition is progressive and essential for change.
I found this to be powerful because it tackles the matter from the core and does not have any one sided blame/reason for it. This helps us work together in re-structuring the system by looking at it in this perspective. It opens room for discussion, consensus, and so forth rather than having two opposing sides of the matter.
I think that this is an important perspective to remember because I think that some individuals forget what they are fighting for. Remembering that you're not against all men, but rather the concept of sexism itself that is not exclusively tied to the male sex. I feel like that's also one of the ways that men think that feminists are man-haters when in reality that isn't true and that to be a feminist you have to be a woman, which should never be true. The more fighting against the system, the better the result will be.
