Unfortunately, not paying attention to race and gender does not make gender-race inequalities go away, precisely because these inequalities are institutionalized and not just ideas in people’s heads.

Adventures in Gender Episode 5236

I work in retail.

I work on the main desk in my department store and am often asked where our bathrooms are.

There are many many people who ask for their shy opposite gender companions and their children so I always ask which bathroom they are looking for, “Men’s or ladies’?”

The number of people who are offended by my question when they are not obviously asking for a shy companion standing meekly twelve feet away is shocking.

Gender, kids. It’s a thing.

Asking people out?

I’ve been thinking about asking people out lately. 

I’m recently single again and am wondering about people asking each other out. 

I’ve had a few straight cis female friends who have talked about how they want to date guys they’ve met but are scared to ask them out. 

As a gay/queer white cis man I have experienced that feeling of being scared of asking boys out but it has subsided as I’ve gotten more comfortable with being queer. 

I wonder how other people feel about asking out people who you’re interested in. Is it different for straight women to ask straight men out? Is it easier for queer men and women to ask other queers out? If you’re bi or pansexual do you find it easier to ask out any gender? Thoughts?
