Who’s that girl? Notes from the Lebanese Absolute Republic of Beauty

Diary of a feminist: 18/05/2010r

My coworker is a sexist guy. He thinks that women can’t drive because they can’t focus. “It’s in their genes” he explained to me. He later told me about his “scientific” theory that explains what it is in women’s vision that doesn’t allow them to focus on the road ahead. He also said that when we go back to the basics men are stronger- that’s just the way it is- and this is why men are superior.

I was about 12 and after that I don’t remember encountering any stupid invention as such until…. well, few days ago!
