          Lol.

          Fine, ban all tv shows, magazines, romance novels, commercials, movies, etc etc etc that put forward the 'sexy woman' image in any way, shape, or form.

          Ban makeup.

          Ban revealing clothing.

          That's a start.

      A successful implementation of this goal would result in a 30% unemployment rate and a new depression that would make the one in the 30's look like a walk in the park.

        Sexism is limited people and stopping them from doing what they want.  I would not assume everyone wants to work full time.  Equally more men might want to stay home so it will all even out. Especially if everyone makes a living wage so one income families are viable.

    Encourage the principle of self-ownership and lead by example, but nobody will end sexism.

    This seems to have an obvious answer to me..... raise our sons to have RESPECT not just for women but all people no matter how different or hard to understand they are. That's all sexism and bigotry is is a lack of respect and empathy. It's easy to instil these qualities into any child if its parents or guardians are paying attention! But I guess we must have respect for ourselves first. A lot of sexist men out there grew up in households where mom was treated like the dirt on her husband's shoe. So our daughters must learn enough respect for themselves never to let themselves be treated in such a fashion and give a bad example to their children. It goes both ways.

    Sexism is expecting one sex to look pretty.  If we expect both sexes to look pretty equity is met and industry doubles.

    I have no idea why you think non-sexist people don't look at ads and buy stuff--or pay for sex.  Sex work is work.  IMHO it should just be legalized.

        Just make sure to wear an uncomfortable foundation garment and ankle-twisting shoes as you sing that.

          You just reminded me of a Nevada law that needs to be passed...

          Casino cocktail waitresses on their feet all day in high-heel shoes. Which shoes being totally destructive to the various human joints over time and under such conditions. I can't help but wonder how many of those waitresses hobble around with arthritis when they reach their 60's...

          It really should be illegal to require employees to wear high-heel shoes in such cases where it is so destructive over the long term.

            The TUC passed a motion (that sounds so wrong) on this with regards to cabin crew, I believe this was during 2008.

    I would give all men a choice.
    Respect all women as equals or be castrated.
    Done and done!
