Do you see anything wrong in the phrase: "Act like a lady?" Well some people online did. A Texas school district has removed a quote that was painted above lockers at a middle and elementary school after the quote sparked criticism online this week.
The quote reads: "The more you act like a lady, the more he'll act like a gentleman." Some people thought it was stereotypical, and that shamed women and relinquished boys of all responsibilities...
You be the judge: Do you think the phrase: "Act like a lady" is sexist?

It's perpetuating horrible gender stereotypes, shaming women, and relinquishing boys of all responsibility. It's sexist, mysogonistic, and discriminatory!
