What you could say #1
The team at Chalk Circle has had experiences when people have said things that perpetuate rigid gender roles and stereotypes. We got together and brainstormed some top rebuttals... all the things we wished we'd said when we heard these comments the first time! Here's three for today and we'll have more coming soon!
It's important to remember to always leave room for empathy. Many people who say these things say them not because they are trying to be controversial or offensive, but because they are really trying to understand how all this stuff works! That's why it's important we have open conversations in a safe and comfortable way.
