male dominance

It's up to us to let men know, as early in their lives as possible, that it is not acceptable. That may include complaining to their bosses, but if we don't act and don't speak up, then imbued condescension will continue.
We may need to change how we go about almost everything.
If you look beyond the present moment, you might be able to not only see new opportunities for connection, the person you disagree with might shift his or her perspective as well.
