Since I started my feminist blog, friends and strangers love to quiz me on my definitions. "Discrimination" is an especially contentious term and whenever I dare offer a definition, it is usually met with suspicion and sarcasm.
Yesterday a friend asked me whether the practice of accepting professional women to wear sandals during the summer discriminates against men who are usually expected to cover their toes all year long. It is the second time I get this very same question (the first time it was about men not being allowed in "nice" clubs in sandals) so I thought I would open it up for discussion here as well.
Tell me what you think!
