I think itโ€™s safe to say that, on the whole, most of the men that you associate with in your everyday life, and a lot of the ones who come in and out of your day as strangers, are not men who actively seek to commit both sexist microaggressions and bigger misogynistic acts upon women. Of course, there are always going to be horrible men who personify everything that is wrong and sexist, but as an optimist, I like to think that things are turning in a positive direction. However, any woman will be able to tell you that it isnโ€™t just the big misogynistic statements that affect us. Here are ten sexist microaggressions we still have to put up with from guys on a pretty much regular basis!

This is when, for reasons that you will never understand, a guy proceeds to explain something to you in patronising detail that you are already well versed in. He might mean well, but it comes across as him thinking he knows more that you about a subject when in reality he absolutely doesnโ€™t!
