And he’s my least sexist colleague

Posted: April 13, 2011 by Jender in objectifying women

I am the only women in an all-male department at a state institution without a graduate program. I have a younger male colleague who is a beloved teacher. He was talking to me about some of our very attractive students and the whole reason being a prof had its perks was these women. Normally such attractive women would be out of his league, but since they would see him in his element, the classroom, they would be attracted to him due to the power difference. What it is like to be a woman in philosophy for me is that this man is one of my least sexist colleagues.
