Over thinking it?
I borrowed a flashlight from a woman yesterday; it was covered in a floral pattern. A fellow was teasing me about the “pretty” flashlight and I wondered if his behavior was rooted in misogyny or homophobia; I believe this sort of teasing usually stems from one or the other.
Another possibility is something I’ve done myself. I don’t believe that I’m a misogynist or homophobe but when seeing it in others I’ve used it to push their buttons. Maybe he doesn’t really hate anybody but is just a crank.
