I'm an ex Muslim and I feel strongly that Islam is sexist in many ways. I just want to see how many others feel the same way. Please, also mention why you feel that way.

Yes, I agree with that statement. However, so is christianity and judaism and possibly other large religions as well.
I don't hold it against islam itself (or christianity or judaism) that they're sexist. These religions were created hundreds or thousands of years ago. Islam is the youngest major world religion and it came into existence around the 7th century. It's not surprising that people back then felt different about things and we should always try to look at such historical circumstances objectively.
However, I do hold it against modern believers that they still follow these religions and religious doctrines. I don't have a problem with the koran or the bible being sexist but I do have a huge problem with 21st century people following these books and making up bullshit excuses why the sexism and racism and homophobia etc. is supposedly okay or why it's all "not a big deal" or "a matter of interpretation".0
