Can You Even BE More Obvious With Your Sexism?!
|I was on vacation in Sonoma, CA a couple years ago with my friend. We decided to take a cab to her friend’s house to go to a party one night. The cab driver picks us up, and after a few minutes starts telling us horribly disgusting, sexist jokes. I could tell this guy was fucked up, so I decided to confront him with the only thing I could think of at the moment.|
I said loudly to him, “Hey, why do brides wear white?”
He said something like, “I don’t know. Because they’re pretending they’ve never been fucked?” (more gross laughter)
“No. Because all major kitchen appliances come in white.”
He seemed a little taken aback, but laughed just the same. Then he said, that was a good one. My poor friend looked at me like I was crazy. It was only when we arrived safely and got out of the cab that I explained how I was haphazardly trying to change the tone of the whole encounter and let him know that he wasn't going to intimidate us. Of course, any guy who had an ounce of human decency might have felt ashamed after I threw his stupid game back in his face. Dare to dream....
