Perpetuating Stereotypes

Girl in my Expatriate Literature class explaining how she knew the 2nd narrator in DeBeauvoir's The Mandarins was a woman:

"I don't know, the writer just liked, seemed really insecure and unsure of themself, so I figured it was a girl."

I almost stabbed her with a highlighter.

Today Sam came over we made dinner and he met some of my friends and said something to one of them about being more attuned with feminism because of being friends with you and me. It made my heart glad.
