In my school during lunch they call up one gender at a time to eat first. Sexism or not

@Zachhooton1,
If it's like schools I'm familiar with it's crowd control, not sexism.

Does the food run out before the second gender is called up?

@Zachhooton1,
No, it's not sexism. Do you think the boys should be going before the girls?
In polite society, women go before men and girls go before boys.

Of course, in the jungle, it's one man for himself.

For instance, in NYCity, it's common when the subway doors open and there's no room for entry, for those folks on the outside to grab those on the inside and throw them out onto the subway platform, so they can get inside the cars.
That's one reason, why many folks call NYCity a JUNGLE

Of course this is sexism. If this isn't sexism, that what is?

In polite society women stayed home and took cooked and cleaned for their husbands. Is this sexism?

In polite society, women didn't vote.

If polite society is a valid reason for not getting rid of unequal gender roles, then nothing is sexism.

@Zachhooton1,
If the gender that gets to go first is alternated, then no it is not sexism.

If it is always the girls that go first, or it it is always the boys that go first, than absolutely it is sexism. There is no other way to look at it.

(Based on entrenched American cultural gender roles... I am going to bet that it is the girls who always go first. Am I right?)

@Zachhooton1,
I have never heard of any school ever calling students up to eat lunch by gender. Is there some reason that the school is allowing one gender to eat first? There must be a reason for this.

@maxdancona,
I see from thumb downs that my point wasn't taken too well... but I think it is a valid point. If polite society dictates different treatment for men and women, in what cases is it acceptable and in what cases is it "sexism"?

It seems to me that if the goal is equality, then any different treatment based on gender should be challenged no matter what polite society dictates. Much of the progress our society has made so far (including women's suffrage) was opposed by the dictates of polite society.

Would anyone care to explain the distinction?

The issue is not who eats first, but who gets to the food first.

Sexism. In THOSE DAYS, the males didn't let their "little women" drive the car. Also in THOSE DAYS, men took their hats off when riding in an elevator. Also, in THOSE DAYS, men didn't eat their supper while sitting in their underwear.

ALSO in those days, women stood little chance of attending medical school, law school, dental school or vet school. WOMEN were discriminatated against and in many fields today, WOMEN are still being treated like sub-humans.

ALSO, women were prohibited by law from getting an abortion, if one should be desired. AHHHHHHHHHHH!

@Miller,
I agree with all of that, Miller.

I have no problem with getting rid of old sexist customs. I don't understand why you want to hold onto one of them.

If we are going to get rid of old sexist customs that treat women differently from men, then why not get rid of all of them.

lo siento max, pero teniendo en cuenta que has dejado claro que eres capaz de negar el sol antes que reconocer que alguien tiene mas problemas y debe dedicársele mas tiempo, voy a ir a lo sencillo: vamos a acabar con esas discriminaciones de genero y conseguir que hombres y mujeres sean tratados iguales....... que es lo que ser feminista implica.
RESUMIENDO: debo darte la razón para conseguir lo que pretendía desde el principio

(i should have done that sooner.... my bad, i was raised in a feminist family... i haven´t learnt yet women antics hahahahahah)

If it were true that feminists wanted men and women to be treated as equals, then I would be a feminist.

I am not a feminist.

@momoends,
You are confusing the word "woman" with the word "feminist". There are lots of strong, intelligent women who believe in equality who don't want to be called "feminist".

Not all men are "machistas". Not all women are "feminists".

Any man or woman who believes in equality is OK with me no matter what they call themselves.

I searched for that expression on Google....

... I got pornography.

(The literal translation is 'hard for you'... but I am assuming you didn't mean it that way.)

I really like learning new phrases in Spanish. I am assuming that this phrase, literally "a nickle for you", is saying that you aren't too impressed by my point.
