I’m a big fan of meaningless phrases like “reverse sexism” and “reverse racism.” The idea that when a gender bias causes things to be harder for a dude it’s reverse sexism is such a fantastically sexist notion in the first place that it just tickles me pink. Sexism is acts or beliefs which use gender as an overwhelming defining characteristic. It’s not reverse sexism when cops assume that any violence in a relationship was initiated by the man, it’s just regular old sexism.

Actual reverse sexism would be refusing to be aware of any distinction between men and women. Abolishing separate sex locker rooms in high school, buying your male children and equal number of dresses and jeans, and giving tampons to absolutely everyone.
