All of us have heard someone close to us say something we're not quite comfortable with. Emma Stone has a great way of handling a sexist comment.

Check out this convo from the Yahoo Spider-Man Q&A. I love the way Emma approaches the issue. No hate, just a reasonable question.

OK, so a kid in the audience asked 'how did Spider-Man get his costume?'...

Good save, Garfield! Seriously, though - his kind of everyday sexism needs to be called out, but people listen more when you give them the chance to explain themselves, rather than attack. A simple bit of talk and everyone's a winner.

Whether you've made a mistake or you want to help others be more considerate, everyone can learn from Emma Stone.
