microaggressions:

When a financial institution asks me my “mother’s maiden name” as a security question. Because it’s assumed that I have at least one and no more than one mother in my life AND that she married AND that she gave up her own name AND that that part of her identity was erased enough from my public history so as to be a password to access my private information.

Holy crap, I never realized.

I prefer to be around feminist minded people in general. But a feminist doctor is an absolute requirement. Nothing worst than experiencing sexism within that context.

Truth, for a variety of reasons.

I’ve had a male doctor refuse to prescribe me birth control. Let me be clear, in that I believe I could have a female doctor not treat me in feminist manner as well.

My doctor refused to prescribe me birth control pills and justified it by saying that if I started taking it at that time it would be detrimental to me in the future if I wanted to have kids. So, to recap…He assumed I wanted to have children without talking to me about, refused to give me birth control, and lied to me about the side effects of birth control to convince me to not use it.
