Breakfast Reflection #1

Something that's surprised me about recording the first sexist bullshit of the day is how much shit I let slide.

For example, the Vince Cable interview that inspired this project was preceded by a discussion about Caesareans, which inevitably featured patronising views on women's ability to make decisions about their own bodies. This absolutely qualified as sexist bullshit but for some reason I didn't react too strongly. Obviously, my brain has to protect itself from dissolving into a pile of sweary plasma, but why notice one thing and not the other? Something to think about.

In any case, the swear jar is going hungry today.
