No matter how much time passes and how much things change, it seems that there will always be a vocal minority of people who borrowed their cultural worldview from the 1950s. And it apparently doesn't matter whether they actually lived through that decade or not.
Whether they're putting women's style choices and bodies under a microscope, reacting with persistent disbelief when they learn that a woman they know is a scientist, or pigeonholing them into other jobs like nursing or teaching, they're proof positive that sexism hasn't gone away.
However, one mechanic's story does a lot to illustrate that enough has changed that these outdated attitudes don't get people as far as they used to. And the results are pretty satisfying.
