"There you are love" he said as he handed me the cream container I had asked him for. He was half my age and I found what he said a little condescending although he probably didn't mean any harm.

Women are treated as second class every day on this planet in a myriad of situations. They are made to feel like they don't know anything by tactless men who must think the universe revolves around them.

Thankfully I have never seen this at my current firm.

It never would have occurred to me to behave this way because I have always identified with women even when I wasn't self accepting.

So while it may in one way be validating to be recognized as a woman by this young man, it didn't feel right to have any kind of condescending language used on me.

Women are equals.
