Hey Pandas, What Is The Most Sexist, Racist, Or Homophobic Thing You’ve Seen Recently? (Closed)
Please share! By the way, this is for a school project.
I took self defense class with only boys. I was the youngest and shortest One boy said, "why is there a girl here, girls can't hit". After he said that, I smacked him hard, it made a mark on his face
My uncle told a black person on Facebook to "go pick [him] some cotton". My dad called him out, and an argument ensued that hasn't been solved yet. It's been over a year and my family is starting to split into two factions.
Woman being able to hit men with no consequences but if a man hits her back, the man is crucified and painted as a horrible person.
I will go first.I found out that Instagram thinks my mum is a boy BECAUSE SHE FOLLOWS WEIGHT LIFTERS!
In our country people "protest" against LGBTQ because they're "destroying the fabric of our society."
I'm a female chef. I've been harassed a lot in male-dominated kitchens.
My sister reunited with 7 girls at her school that have been sexually harassed by a teacher to report him. He got fired, but later one of the girls stepped back and denied everything she told to the staff (probably family influence), my father thought it was my sister’s fault for being too “nosy” and that she should have told only her part, threatened to take her out of school. Principal told to sister that “it was not a big deal”, sure, he didn’t rape one of them...yet. This is the problem, not yet.
The constant "not all men" when misogyny etc is discussed. And using blatant misandry to try to "make right" said misogyny is also just so wrong. These two points end up being all that is discussed, and so we all get nowhere, while the resentment builds
this kid i was friends with found out i was gay and then blocked me... 😀
My best friend's husband who still says "That's Gay" to anything he deems "not manly". trash.
Seeing all the racism against Asians has been very disheartening. I am Chinese-American. Supposedly the racism is suddenly fueld by the pandemic, but just because it was discovered in China does not mean you can just point a finger at all of us and release all of your anger on us.
I work in commission based customer service. One of my coworkers is from the Dominican Republic. She speaks very good English but still has a bit of an accent and not by any means difficult to understand.
She started to help a customer and after 15 or so minutes they decided they didn't want to work with her any more because of her accent and just kind of left her hanging and came to talk to me.
I don't play that so I kept referring them back to her as friendly as possible but inside I was fuming. Super disrespectful
What about ableism? My sister said it was stupid to mandate masks because we're "just protecting the weak". She has rheumatoid arthritis. SMH
It wasn’t a sex, racist, or homophobic thing. But my boss had a fellow Christian friend working for him. I’m an atheist. I presented facts upon facts of dishonesty and poor work performance that was always disregarded. Recently found out the boss believed the Christian by his word, because he is a man of god. The boss didn’t think an atheist has morals, hence, I am the liar, even though I had reports of proof. Now, I am cleaning up months of work that didn’t get done.
Not recent but about 5 years ago.
I was working as a department lead at a sports store speaking with my African American female coworker about where to put freight.
And older white man walks up to us both. Coworker greets the gentleman and asks how she can help. He proceeds to disregard her and asks me for help with something. Without hesitation I advise him that she will help him and walk away.
Knowing my coworker she's a strong-willed woman and can handle herself otherwise I wouldn't have left her like that 😅
2020-2021 have been horrible years. So many hate crimes. So much death. ):
Just a few days ago, I was returning home from a job interview and I saw a bumper sticker on another person’s car that had a photo of a truck running over stick figures and it said “All Lives Splatter. I don’t care about your protest.”
To the person whose car that was on... do better.
This one isn't necessarily recent but a while back there was this kid in my class named cole, who stared forward into space a lot during class. Because a male kid sat in front of him, of course he was labeled as gay. I don't know if he was or not, the larger issue is that it meant no one would sit by him, everyone made fun of him, and they would freak out whenever he was remotely near. The thing that INFURIATES ME is that one of the kids who was bullying him HAD TWO MOMS and all of her friends were too. I have two moms as well, and ended up being LITERALLY THE ONLY KID WHO STOOD UP FOR COLE.
Some kids at my school were so bored and stupid they held a “Anti gay protest” at the gate
I'm a girl, and some people think that it is weird that I like the color red. I know that people think that girls should like pink, but pink is a lighter shade of red, so they don't know what they are talking about.
i think ive shared this story before but last summer i was camping with my family and i walked past this family of 4 (mom, dad, 2 kids) having a fire and BURNING the pride flag with the oldest kid crying
Some time ago I got a job. The fist day a man told me: "Do your husband allows you to work?" I said I am not marry. I didn't got offended, but is curious some people still think woman have to get permission from a man to do do this kind of things.
All lives matter. All lives don't matter until black ons do
One of my friends who goes to a different school was telling me about how at their school, a group if LGBTQ+ students had mud thrown at them by cis-het students. I'd like to say this wouldn't be tolerated at my school, but a student recently got away with making some homophobic, biphobic and Islamophobic comments.
Yesterday my 'aunt in law' came to our home (unanounced and bringing her aggressive dog but thats a different issue). she was talking to my partner about housing and said 'there, you know, where the black people live'. WTF?
I was on a queer community website just minding my business. Some kid claims their bi and that means they love all genders. Me, a pansexual, tried to explain that bi is attraction to men and women, and that there are more than two genders, but they refused to listen and said I was making stuff up. I am SICK of people telling me that I am not valid, when it’s clear they know nothing about it.
So at my school the boy’s dress code is very far different from the girl’s dress code, I understand that most every school has that but our school tends to sexualize shoulders and be like well shoulders can turn someone on. Like what?
In my HaSS class, there are a group of boys who sit at the table next to me and my friends, I have heard them multiple times make trans- or homophobic jokes. This really sucks because there are multiple posters about trans- and homophobia around the classroom, pride memorabilia, and a literal gay person sitting next to them, but they just don't care, and continue to be rude and disrespectful.
Overall media - Sexism and racism everywhere. Aimed towards all directions, being it white against black or vice versa or "fighting" against misogyny with misandry. Crazy stuff from and towards all sides on social media, books, games and movies.
I heard someone refer to xhosa people as 'oxygen stealers'.
Oh yeah, after a girl at my school found out I’m transgender (I identify as a boy) she started calling me she-girl. How fun.
In management at a ‘man’s’ store. Had a guy come up to me in appliances wanting to purchase a dryer or something from the scratch and dent section. First he called me ‘girl’...I’m a 46 year old woman thank you! Then he tells me he wants to ‘Jew down the price’. Ummmm, excuse me, what did you say? ‘I want to Jew down this price’. So I responded that our company does not combine religion and business with my sweetest smile. He’s getting irritated now because he thinks I’m daft, wants to talk to the guy that’s usually here. Okie dokie. I go off to retrieve Tim. Told him what was going on and we return together. Guy turns to Tim repeats himself. What proceeds to happen is that every-time he asked about an appliance we state the sticker price. Every time he said something racist (Tim in no nonsense Africa American dude by the way) we up the price. He gets so mad he demanded to speak to a manager. “Sure! I’ll be right back.” I then walk around the aisle and return to a introduce myself and ask how I can help him. He’s so flustered looking back and forth between us. Throws up his arms with a string of profanity and left.
Don’t be disrespectful to sales associates. We have more power than you realize and we’ve already dealt with far too many jerks.
newsbreak articles. they are very racist. disgusting. I deleted the app.
One of my classmates came out as trans... nobody was bothered by it, but after school, one of the students told her "You're not a girl because you were born as a guy" and she couldn't get in trouble with the school because she wasn't on school property.
Some guys at my school recently made a tictok saying what girls look good in: dress-no, athletic clothes-no, bathing suit- no... etc and then it said the kitchen and that of course was the answer. I mean it’s just boys being boys and really not a massive deal, it’s just that we go to a Christian school and that is still very rude. :(
40 year old guy named Charles to my 14 year old daughter “you have a nice body.” Umm, gross.
My father was pride because my sister broke up with her mouslim boyfriend. He said she was waisting her life with him. She's only 22 and just wants to enjoy life and be happy, so she hooked back up with her boyfriend and they are still happy.
So I'm doing my GCSE and my mom had guests around so while I was revising my mom made me go and clean the kitchen, the conservatory, and garden. I had two exams the next day.
My brother was upstairs on the bed playing on his phone, he has no exams this week.
Women lying about being assaulted. Better yet, anyone in general lying about being assaulted.
My wife's mother tells her that my income is to support the family, but my wife's is to "play with" and that if we use any of the money she earns to pay household expenses that I am not living up to my obligation as a husband. Thankfully, my wife considers this BS.
In my baseball league, there's one girl. I feel bad because the rest of the teams pick on her for, well, being a girl in an all boy league. I hope she line drives it into one of their faces next time she's at bat.
today i came out to the class as pansexual and my teachers & freinds supported me but we got new students and one girl said "ew,nasty" annd other things about how i shouldnt be "gay' and other stuff and i have glossophobia and anxiety so this made it worse she got expelled and my principal is lesbian dating the vice principal some of my teachers are apart of lbgtq+ and she got what she deserved!
My high school history teacher chose to refer to slaves as n***ers. I went to the principal about it and he said “he was just letting you know what they were called”. To make it better, I’m a woman of mixed decent, he’s met my very black dad at parent teacher conferences. He is still employed at my old high school.
A kArEn. WoOoOoOw!
Sexist: A boy in my class was talking about how the men burning women for being smart and stealing there ideas were smart, and said it proved men were smarter.
Racist: The same boy as above (who is white) was defending the fact slave owners got reparation and not slaves and said it made sense.
Homophobic: I am a closeted lesbian, and I am trying to get my parents opinions on gays to see if it's safe to come out. I managed to bring it up by talking to my dad about his sister (who is also a lesbian). We are Christian, so I asked him why God would make being gay a sin (I don't think it is but they do) if being gay wasn't a choice. He said maybe it is a choice and they want us to think it isn't, which is probably the stupidest thing he's ever said, and he's said some stupid stuff.
my relative gave us a bag of clothes her granddaughter grew out of. and EVERYTHING is pink
I let my cousin borrow one of my favorite books. He comes back later and says "I really like (character's name). It's too bad they're a trash f*g." still mad.
Caitlin Jenner's ignorance about the trans community at large, and her tendency to side with the GOP rather than defend the community.
I’m what most would consider a boyish lesbian. I don’t consider myself trans. I’m just a masculine female. I was in a local chain store and three men pass by me. One suddenly bumps me hard with his shoulder and I heard him say “she wants to be a man so I’ll treat her like one” which couldn’t be further from the truth. I love being a woman. Some people judge based on appearance. There’s so much more to me than just my sexuality. Just be kind folks.
When I was younger, my dad said if I ever dated a N-word, S-word or a C-word he would disown me
Worked a shift with 2 male collegues at an investor fair, think shares and stock markets. Almost everybody approached them first an the grey-haired colleague was their favourite. Even if both of them were busy talking people waited for them instead of talking to me. Mind you, I am 40+ and look nothing like a hostess - but still everyone seems to have thought I was there to smile and wave. Unfortunately, my 2 colleagues weren‘t able to answer most of the questions as I am the expert (hence the reason I was there) and had to refer almost everyone to me. Then the queued up to talk to me.
Well I on more than one occasion told someone when I found out they were gay that I didn't care that they were gay I just didn't want them hitting on me. Did I think that getting hit on by a gay guy would turn me gay or something? I didn't realize I was being homophobic. This was in-between the time I was very anti gay because that's the way I was taught and now. I don't care what you are. If a gay man hit on me now I would be a little flattered but I would respectfully decline which is exactly what I would do if an attractive woman hit on me.
MIL said she wouldn’t order furniture from China because there would have been little yellow hands all over it.
I’m a brown girl. Someone, IN MY CLASS spat, on me in an effort to,” Wash away the brown-ness.”
I was at a supermarket and heard a mom tell her son “it’s Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve” 🤦🏼♀️
This is not recent, but when we were younger my sister got called a "greasy haired N- word. The person who called her this was supposed to be her friend.
My grandma is one of those fake Christians. She is
A couple things she's done:
- Refused to read a book about a transgender girl with me
- Refused to have her nails done by a man
- Said that my dog's collar is blue because he's a boy
- Told my mom (for the 100th time) that Star Wars is for boys
- Veered away from a house with a pride flag
Most recently? Told me that she had tried to get a t-shirt for me but there weren't any left in pink.
I live in South Africa. It is against the law (written in our constitution) to discriminate against anyone based on their race, sexual preference or gender. You can get into serious trouble if you cross this line!
I ordered some nails that were supposed to have rose decals and little pearl necklaces on them they were so bomb and almost vantablack BUT instead I got what I can only describe as African printed nails with CHAINS ON THEM. look I might have been jumping the gun but I was pissed and popped off on those people. If it feels racist then it is right?
Ex co worker I had was super racist. He is half PR. Acted like he was colored:gangster. Looked like a white kid. Blonde and blue eyes. Spoke mangled Spanish to the other PRs there (cousins) and used the N word almost every other word in a sentence.
One day I mentioned it was cold near my area an he said to me “N::::: ya don’t know how cold it gets” now I’m a white woman but I had had it with his crap using that word an I snapped. I never use it but I looked him in the eyes and said sternly “I wasn’t speaking to you and I’m not your N:::.” He just looked at me like wtf because he was never called out on using that word. He even called the boss that once. He was told to stop doing it but never did. Just hate how some people let stuff go instead of calling them out in it. The music the artists make, the people who feed into it buying it, the people listening to it an singing along and the little ones not being taught it’s a bad word stumps me. Equality mean equality. Not one side gets more or less. Treat everyone the way you want to be treated. No hate. NO RACE BUT THE HUMAN RACE. STOP HATE!!
Recently on the Wattpad community, someone came on saying “No gays or trans allowed here: Straight couples only! Follow if you agree.” Needless to say, BASHED with the entire LGBTQ+ community and supporters.
So, the right wing stuff...I expect them to be insanely racist and they are. But the racism I see so rampant is from "woke" culture that is furthering the divide between ethnicities, cultures, classes, races, and genders. Instead of bringing us closer together, they are in fact, going the same exact thing the right does, just with a different tone. It's disheartening.
Anything said in every form of media owned by Rupert Murdoch.
I got beat up by my class mates for being gender fluid also did I mention 2 ofthem were my pals
I work in the financial services industry, and I have been at my current job for eight years (and I love it) so I know a thing a or two about our products and how they work. A customer called in with a question and while I don't normally talk to customers, no one else was available so I took the call. I answered all of the customer's questions, sent all of the materials he requested and then he asked a question and he didn't like the answer that I gave him, which was a simple fact, not my opinion, he could have used Google and got the same answer (I was quoting a law), but he DEMANDED to speak to a man because "there is no way a woman could read the law like that and interpret it correctly."
Both sexist and racist. All attackers of Asian hate only attack young women or old women. It’s pathetic to prey on the innocent, and even more pathetic to prey on someone that’s not on a level to defend themselves. Pick a fight with someone your level, cowards.
I used to have a friend on Facebook that would post racist BS and I would constantly call him out for it. He never had a response to me, until the day he posted a meme that asked why we didn't have a 'White History Month'. I responded by asking him if he'd ever heard of every single other month of the year.
He commented back with (his exact words) "I don't post these things for you to comment on, and if you love them so much why don't you go paint yourself brown."
I was responding with "Well, besides the fact that that would be very insulting to people of color, I would rather be associated with them than with bigots like you." but, unfortunately, he had apparently blocked me right after he responded to my post.
I have a transgender friend (ftm) and I told my friends at school about the change. One of my friends is a very strict Christian and refuses to use the correct pronouns and repeatedly uses my friends dead name we have all called him out on this and he refuses to back down and use the right pronouns. Also I recently came out as demiomnisexual and according to him I’m going to hell. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Once, in grade 2, when Pokémon was still popular I brought my book full of EXes to school. Someone tried to steal them from me and when caught said “hi et is don’t deserve to play Pokémon” I was furious and said “you don’t deserve to have a life”
Being expected to clean a whole house and look after other people’s children without even being asked simply because I’m a woman. My boyfriend’s mom left me alone in her house with 4 children without saying a word for 4 hours and had the audacity to complain that I didn’t even clean up after the kids and put them to bed. I was then told “cleaning and nurturing comes natural to a woman.”and “you would know that if You were a mother but as a woman you should simply know better.”
I used to work at an Ivy League school in NH. A lot of the custodians there are sexist, racist, etc. One day a group of us were talking about Chinese food. Out of no where a guy goes “ those noodle f*****s”. This, among many other reasons is why I don’t work there anymore.
Almost any news story about politics or police abusing power has me triggered as a latina woman who like most of her life in southern US
my ex friends bully by calling me a girl or she/her ( I'm gender fluid )
