CALL FOR ART | Sexism: A Touchy Subject | May 10, 2015

Sexism today is a touchy subject. Sex, when used as the basis for discrimination is called sexism, a term coined in the 1960s. Yet even now, a half century later, a definition has never reached consensus.

Why?
• Is it the belief that one sex is intrinsically inferior?
• Do genders think differently about sex and all its related matters?
• Is this nature so deep in our psyche it exists in a realm beyond our reach?

If our sexual identity is unconscious it makes our often-extreme reactions hard to understand let alone explain. Yet it pervades all cultures and personal experience fundamentally. Bodily autonomy. Economics. Motherhood. The responding political movements reverberate with gender memes as we lurch blindly into the future looking for justice, looking for satisfaction, looking for love.
The gender “wars” are exhausting. But is it better to avoid the topic? What is just, when it comes to a woman? #artandfeminism
