It can be hard to know how to react if a friend makes sexist comments. According to a 2006 survey in the UK, 20% of kids ages 10–13 experienced bullying that was sexist, sexual, or transphobic in nature. If a friend makes a sexist remark, make a point this week of approaching them later to explain how what they said wasn’t cool. You can try phrases like, “Hey man, what you said back there, I don’t think you meant it, but it was pretty offensive to women,” or “Why are we calling him girly? Is that supposed to be an insult? Girls are cool.” It might cause them to look at things in a new way, and help them avoid making the same mistake in the future.
