No you're not taking it the wrong way, and as you know, they haven't just been invented. I think it's like getting pregnant for the first time and suddenly noticing other pregnant women, or types of buggies. Your awareness has been awakened. That's a brilliant thing. I remember 'converting' a friend to feminism at uni. She's now, 30 years on, far more aware and ardent than I have ever been. At first she was really resistant. Even if your colleagues start by thinking it's an over reaction, they might end up realising what you are pointing out is worth thinking about.
