Last month, a work buddy of mine was killed in an accident while she was at work. It's been a pretty sh*tty month, needless to say. Now, I've had male friends killed in similar circumstances, but this has hit me especially hard. It's hit all of us harder than we want to admit. I was talking to a friend of mine today about it, and she says that I'm bothered more about it than usual because the person involved was female. It's a sexist thing - guys have a harder time dealing with the death of a female, for one reason or another. Deep down - I think she's right. I'm more bothered by this than usual because the person killed was female. Does that make me sexist? I never thought of it that way.
