While at a friend’s bachelorette party, I went to the bar’s bathroom. There, I saw a girl crying with one of her friends. My immediate reaction was, “Well, now that I’ve seen that, I can check another space off my mental Saturday night bar-BINGO card.”
It took me a while to reconsider my thought. It feels sexist to me. It’s true that I frequently see girls crying at parties or in bathrooms at bars…but something still feels skeezy about the way I thought about it.
So I’ll call myself out. And I’ll try to be better.
