9. Grave danger?

So, promoting sexism is just an example of "a certain amount of silliness in politics"?

I have been an advocate for survivors of relationship violence for over thirty years. I can assure you: this and all other forms of sexism remain a big issue, because these little instances of sexism are a fundamental underpinning of all relationship violence. Batterers find it much easier to assault or justify their verbal bullying when they objectify or belittle their partners.
