it is NOT possible for a women to be sexist to a man.

Firstly the dictionary is wrong GET OVER IT. Sexism is where discrimination based on gender becomes instritutionally ingrained, rendering it being viewed as culturally normal. I.e rape culture (1/5 women are raped).

Hence sexism requires institutional power + discrimination, therefore you cannot be sexist to a man.
How can a dictionary be 'wrong'? Surely it just gives the definition of the word 'sexism'. You are free to use a different word or phrase if you wish.

because it isn't sociologically correct, most dictionarys were written by straight white men too so they are steeped in a priveledged prespective.

Dictionaries are sexist. That's enough internet for one day.

Seriously though, you can't say the dictionary is wrong, as it just gives the definition of the word. Use a different word or phrase to convey your intended meaning. An example would be, 'women cannot oppress men', not that I would necessarily agree with that statement.

the dictionary incities violence towards women and is part of patriachy, they need to be re written by those from oppressed groups in order to ensure they have a voice and lanuage is not dicated by cis white men

I understand the argument, but don't entirely agree. I'd say it takes more for a woman to be genuinely sexist to a man, but it's not impossible. Also, depending on the situation, the same 'surface level' of sexism can have different significance due to power/expectation/etc, and in general that makes the man-on-woman cases worse.

So rape is institutionally engrained and deemed culturally normal.

Also, rape culture? Seriously?

1/5 women are raped? How can the 20% of women be raped? I never recall raping anyone, nor have known personally anyone who has raped someone or has been raped by someone.

If you put a consensual sex into retrospective and call it a 'rape' then quite frankly this is fraud.
