    Not sexist, but maybe it came across a bit like that because of how it was said??

    If it was said in a way that assumed women DON'T tend to have power tools/ know how to use them, and usually tend to call men, THEN I guess it might have come across a bit that way...?

    Definitely agree with the sentiment that all parties should have tools/ know what to do with them.

    Maybe it was seen as sexist as it assumes that a woman wouldn't have tools and would typically require a man to do these tasks.

    I think the intention was not sexist at all, however, as it suggests a belief that women are capable of these stereotypically male tasks.

    *sigh* Your poor Dad! I think we women would be doing ourselves a favour by saving our accusations of sexism for men who are not trying to empower women!!
