So yesterday morning on my way in to work, a white man in a business suit shouted at me, he called me a cunt. For what? I'm assuming because I found a way to get past him in order to exit Highbury and Islington station

Imagine being a bright and eager female student excited to have been accepted into one of the UK's leading research universities () and you find this in your welcome bag: Sexism is sexism even when it's "a joke." Women deserve better than this.

I know Alex can be both a male or female name but I wonder if politicians called Alexander get called Mrs all the time? I speak about in the European Parliament.

Man on train sat next to me in 1st class just said to me in a patronising tone, your boss would be very happy to know you’ve worked hard ticking things off your list rather than slacking. I replied thanks I am the boss, he said no your real boss.

So UK won't arrange to come and quote for new windows UNTIL MY HUSBAND IS HOME. Yes really. This conversation actually just happened. In real life. In 2018. Despite me telling them I'm a) paying for and b) choosing the bloody things.
