Subtle sexism is the unconscious sexism in our society that tends to be passive, in that it is so entrenched in society it is considered ordinary. Swim et al. (2004) define subtle sexism as representing “unequal and unfair treatment of women that is not recognized by many people because it is perceived to be normative, and therefore does not appear unusual” (p. 117). It is often through language that subtle sexism appears. When people state “he” did something instead of “he or she” or “one”, when the statement is meant for all genders, they are using gendered language that is exclusive to women.
In this paragraph I will be talking about Marilyn Frye’s article called “Sexism” and I will discuss whether I agree with her argument or not. Firstly, Frye gives an argument for sexism saying “sexism is not always apparent either to those who suffer from it or to those who inflict it upon others. It is imperceptibility of sexism that enables it to flourish in our society” (Frye, p.844). Marilyn Frye is trying to say that sexism is usually ignored in the real world to those who get hurt from it or to the ones who causes it. In my opinion, I will say that I do agree with Marilyn Frye’s stand on this subject for a couple of reasons.

In the play, “Trifles,” gender stereotypes are grave issues that play a major part in society. However, due to its detrimental effects between males and females, it leads to envy towards each other. Trifles is a play written by Susan Glaspell. The moral of the play was to bring women together in a time where they were discouraged by the beliefs of men.

When people hear the term “dress code sexism”, they usually don't think of it as a problem— they don't think there is a problem; however, dress code sexism does in fact exist. This problem, unlike other problems, doesn't have awareness to the public. For example, people know that breast cancer, eating disorders, and being suicidal are problems, and that’s the difference with dress code sexism and other problems. People are already aware of those kinds of problems, and people don't even think that there is a thing as dress code sexism, but it's in activists and feminists who take on this issue and bring light to the problem and offer a solution. The solution to the sexism that exists in dress codes is not just to change into having uniforms or just take out the dress code system completely.

In the writing "The War Against Boys," Christina Hoff Sommers and Sharon Olds, in the poem "Rate of Passage," very clearly describe today's stereotypes about male and female and their negative and dangerous impact on everyone and on society as a whole.
