I work part time at Skein Lane, a local yarn store where I live. Today, I had a couple of women talking to me about the rampant sexism that they see surrounding knitting. I just laughed and told them they have no idea. One woman said, "You mean people get patronizing to you because you're a guy who knits?" Before I could say a single thing, the second woman said, "Would that be matronizing?"
Many laughs. :)
