Since they, as all perceptions do, both have objective and subjective
aspects, they are both on the same continuum, and differ only in
degree of probability of existing, rather than one being absolutely
provable and the other not.  Or, perhaps, by provable, you mean only
to a certain high degree of probability, rather than beyond any doubt,
as I would understand it to mean.  A certain number of people believe
that sexism exists, and a certain number of people believe that God
exists.  Or, more accurately, everyone believes in the existence of
both to unique degrees of probability.

Because you're only a girl, I'm going to let that comment pass by.

Dendrite?  Is that a brand of toothpaste?
