submit a story

A few years ago, I watched a band set up for their show. A  petite blonde woman walked on stage with an enormous saxophone. My instant, unconscious reaction was, “She’s too small to play the sax!”

Even as a woman and a feminist, my first thought was a sexist one.

Have you ever suddenly realized that you’ve bought into a stereotype?
Have you ever surprised yourself with an unconscious prejudicial thought­?
Thought something prejudiced about a group you are part of?
Experienced a gut response that was different from how you think you think?

Tell your story here.
