Because the Utah Republicans have decided that they will NOT ALLOW any NON-REPUBLICANs to vote in their precious, precious primary, I (non-partisian me)* was handed a Democratic ballot today. Thus, I got to consider the fascinating (no sarcasm intended; I find this entire presidential primary race utterly fascinating) questions relating to the problems of racism versus the problems of sexism.
The radio news dudes have been considering it a lot, too. The other day, there was an entire program on racism and the speaker on the program said, "When you walk into a room, race is the very first thing that you notice."
Which made me think, well, let's consider this idea.
One: you walk into a room and meet a man, but you can't tell what race he is.
Two: you walk into a room and you meet someone, but you can't tell what gender they are.
Which scenario are you going to obsess about?!
However far we have to go with our racism, at least we're aware of it. Dunno if the same thing can be said about our sexism.
