There can be a fine line between feminism and sexism.  Regardless of the sex of the sexism, it's still sexism.  None of the bumper stickers, by the way, seem sexist to me.  The test is simple:  is a man offended if the pro-women wording is changed to pro-male?  I think not.  And if the wording is changed from pro-women to pro-religous or ethnic group?  Again, I think not.

Many years ago a lady colleague made a joke to me about a woman president.  My response was that I had no problem with the concept, and that Margaret Thatcher seemed to be doing a fine job in England.  To my surprise, my colleague agreed with me.  She added she had expected a male chauvinist response from me.  If I am a man, I am expected to be a male chauvinist???   Hmmm...   Maybe she was projecting her female chauvinism on me.
