ALSO if anyone has any links to any form of articles that are either a) about sexism in the form of women’s body image (especially the way vaginas look e.g in porn, periods or body hair) or abuse due to women not being perfect for male expectations or something like that OR b) articles that have been written in a sexist fashion
that would be GREAT if you could link them on this post so I can include them in extended research
[I]magine what would happen if, instead of centering our beliefs about heterosexual sex around the idea that the man “penetrates” the woman, we were to say that the woman’s vagina “consumes” the man’s penis. This would create a very different set of connotations, as the woman would become the active initiator and the man would be the passive and receptive party. One can easily see how this could lead to men and masculinity being seen as dependent on, and existing for the benefit of, femaleness and femininity. Similarly, if we thought about the feminine traits of being verbally effusive and emotive not as signs of insecurity or dependence, but as bold acts of self-expression, then the masculine ideal of the “strong and silent” type might suddenly seem timid and insecure by comparison.
STOP ASSUMING FEMINISTS DON’T CARE ABOUT MEN WHO’VE BEEN ABUSED
YES ABUSE HAPPENS TO MEN
YES MEN AREN’T “ALLOWED” TO REPORT IT OR BE EMOTIONAL ABOUT IT
PATRIARCHY SAYS MEN ARE EMOTIONLESS, WOMEN ARE EMOTIONAL, AND EMOTION AND VICTIMHOOD ARE FEMININE WEAKNESSES
DON’T LIKE IT? SMASH IT WITH US.
JESUS. FUCKING. CHRIST.
