Some aspects of sexism are so pervasive we barely notice them.Think about the way we talk about music—when a band singer’s a woman, the band is constantly characterized as having a “female singer” but the same doesn’t apply for bands with dudes singing.
There are a ton of professions where we add the word “female” first to denote a woman, but we don’t with the men…because they’re considered the standard.
Man Who Has It All (@manwhohasitall) is a hilarious Twitter account with almost 220,000 followers.
Can you help settle a disagreement between me and a friend? We can't agree on the correct term for a male surgeon. Anyone?— manwhohasitall (@manwhohasitall) April 13, 2019
The account tweets things that we typically say about women, but switches the gender to make the issues about men, which highlights just how ridiculous we sound.

Working dad? STOP beating yourself up! We're terrible for doing this. Remember, you don't HAVE to have the perfect hair, skin, teeth, nails, face shape, testicles, ankles, eyebrows, eyelashes, legs, thighs and hands however it does help so keep trying.— manwhohasitall (@manwhohasitall) April 10, 2019

One of the best things about the account is that the responses are often almost as funny as the tweets themselves.

Wasn't Marie Curie's husband some sort of scientist? I forget his name.— Daniel Terhorst-North (@tastapod) April 11, 2019
My sister who ran a physics lab wanted to hire a qualified young male, but her husband objected to the idea of a pretty boy in her lab. Sometimes men are their own worst enemy!— Rianne Vogels (@Rianne_Vogels) April 11, 2019
Personally, I’m a huge fan of this one telling men to smile more.
Many of the T-shirts are of jobs that are still typically considered male, like doctors, engineers, and scientists, in women’s sizes, along with the companion shirts featuring the same jobs with the word “male” or “man” in front of it (so the fellas can feel special), in men’s sizes.

The comments on their T-shirts are also pretty funny.
Someone suggested making them in kids’ sizes, because it totally works for children, too.
