My younger daughter just got her driving learner's permit. In California, after receiving one's permit, the first two hours of driving has to be with a professional driving instructor in a special car where the instructor has a brake and steering wheel as well.
My daughter wanted her instructor to be a woman. She asked me, "Is that sexist?"
The snarky comment that almost escaped my mouth was, "No, because only white males can be sexist." Fortunately, I choked that one back.
Instead, I said, "Well, I don't know, but if so, it would be an illustration of just how meaningless negative words like that can be at times. I wouldn't worry about it."
Was that the right answer?
