Jan 7: over the last few days I have had several encounters of homophobia/ transphobia and sexism and I'm getting sick of it. John Prescott, politician, complained about being sat near 'a table of gays' (us). An 'icebreakers' book saying ambition, success and cars are mens topics, love and feelings are women's topics. And an incident of bullying based on gender expectation (and bad sportsmanship). Disgusting.
