Discrimination based on gender. Both men and women can be victims of sexism.
1. A woman may be paid less than a man for doing the same job is an old example of sexism.

2. A man may be required to sign up fight for his country/be drafted while a woman is not.

3. A man who has sex with many women may be admired by other men, while a woman who has several sexual partners is labelled a 'slut' or a 'whore.'

4. No matter what their relative incomes, some women expect a man to pay for everything on a date, rather than paying for themselves, splitting the bill at dinner, etc.

Something that usually results from human beings assuming that just because they or someone they know has a certain quality, everyone else in that certain gender has it too.
"My girlfriend is frigid, therefore all girls must be."

"My ex boyfriend is a dick, therefore all men must be."

"The only well-known brilliant people in history are men, therefore women musn't have the ability to be brilliant."

"I can talk heaps more easily to the girls I know than to the boys I know, therefore all boys must be emotionally stunted."

(sexism resulting from self centred assumptions)

A guy does 5 chicks in 1 week and is known as a champion.
A girl does 5 guys in 1 week and is known as a slut.
Do you think that's fair?
That's my definition for sexism.

1) A guy was hit in his pubic region in a tv show is perceived as funny, a joke.

2) A lady was hit in her pubic region in a tv show is perceived as offensive, malicious and very much inappropriate.
Sexism is around us, regardless if you're male or female.

An art movement (e.g. Impressionism), where the artist(s) cover themselves in paint and then have sex on a rolled out medium such as canvas.
Friend: "That's a great painting, where did you get it?"
You: "Oh the wife and I made that last weekend, it's a Sexism".

Making a decision based on one's gender
Paying a woman less, or more, than a man, solely because she is a female

Or

Holding a door open for a woman, solely because she is female. - Not sexism if the person doing the holding is doing it because they are a nice person
