When it comes to objectification, this is a great example of why comparing male strip clubs to Hooters is a “false equivalent.”

i’m creating a kickstarter for cojones right now

I am a male and I would happily go to Cajones

Actually, no.  Cajones’ target demographic is gay men.
Men are primarily hardwired for visual stimulation.  It’s why Playboy and Playgirl are BOTH mostly subscribed to by men.  Women, not so much.  Women are more primarily heard toward mental stimulation.

  3. Beyonce Shuts Down Women Against Feminism With A Single Snap

    poorpoorpitifulme:

    listener-blue:

    “Women Against Feminism” has become a thing and we can pretty much hear the hoofbeats of the Four Horsemen, signaling End Times.

    Lucky for us, Beyoncé has stepped in to save the day with a single photo — as she’s been known to do.

    Tuesday (July 22), Bey posted a photo to Instagram in which she’s all kitted out like Rosie The Riveter, flexing under the words “We Can Do It.” She didn’t provide any context for the snap, but we’re pretty much assuming that she posted it to basically save the world from itself. Also because she looks damn good in loose denim.

    Queen Bey isn’t new to feminism — she’s basically been dubbed an honorary Riot Grrrl by Bikini Kill’s Kathleen Hanna and she contributed an essay to Maria Shriver’s “The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink.” Oh, and she’s been repping the “f” word on tour with Jay Z, too, incorporating the term into her stage show in massive black and white letters.

    Now tell us again why you don’t need feminism, ladies. The Beygency is listening…

    Well shit - Beyonce got her photo taken?

    Great rebuttal Beyonce!

    There go all my well thought through reasons for being anti-feminist.

    Dang. 

    I love how this article just seems to assume that because Beyonce did something all the anti-feminist women and girls in the world who have dedicated time and energy to researching and understanding feminism and formulating their own ideas as to why they are against it are just going to crumble into tears at the sight of Beyonce posing as an overused war propaganda poster model and come running back into the arms of Mother Feminism and Godmother Bey.

    The thing I take from this massively obnoxious article is that the author assumes that women are basically: 1) a hive mind who all apparently love the same (overrated) American pop singer and 2) weak-minded beings who will crumble into submission and conformity at even the slightest suggestion of disapproval from an authority figure. Like, are feminist writers trying to sabotage themselves at this point? 

    I don’t even know what the point of this is, but I will just say that the only way I can imagine arriving at the conclusion I didn’t need feminism is if I somehow didn’t think it important to remember so many of my rights and privileges I enjoy today are a direct result of feminism.

    Evening Post: August 12, 1899.
    "She immediately alighted, caught hold of the astonished youth, and gave him a sound thrashing, using her fists in a scientific fashion…”

    I would love to know what this means.

    I think that might be code for “punched him in the balls with devastating accuracy”.

    In the language of the day, fighting ‘in a scientific fashion’ meant she appeared to have studied fighting or boxing, rather than just whaling on him by instinct. During the nineteenth century boxing became formalised, with innovations like the Marquess of Queensberry rules regulating the sport. (The introduction of padded gloves actually made it more dangerous, as boxers could now hit each other much harder without risking injury to their own hands, and more serious facial and cranial injuries resulted. Bareknuckle boxers had to be a bit more careful lest they break their own hand-bones.) There was also an interest in the science of fighting, with a knowledge of anatomy and physics helping to establish where on the body were the most effective places to hit, and how a fighter should move to deliver blows more powerfully.

    I like the ‘delight of several colliers’ too. I like to imagine they gave her a round of applause while she tucked her blouse back in, straightened her hat, and gave them a brisk nod of acknowledgement before cycling on.

    also like to imagine that she arrived slightly late for a dainty afternoon tea, telling her hostess ‘I’m very sorry to be late, Alice, but you see a young lout accosted me on the road and I had to administer a sound thrashing before I could proceed.’ 

    Alice understood perfectly.

    H.G.?

    When she told that same story to Myka a century later, she totally got laid that night.

    kuroimugen said: 

    It might seem out of left field because 95% of shows on TV have no gay charas. Defiance has had “all the gay” since season 1 (re: Stahma/Kenya). It isn’t like they suddenly stuck gay in there. It’s been there the whole time. Just more in this ep.

    I think this is a really good point actually. So many people still don’t realize that this is a normal part of life. Defiance isn’t shoving gay/bi/pan storylines into the show “because we can”, it’s literally just portraying life accurately (or, as accurately as life can be portrayed in a science fiction show). Unfortunately not many tv shows do the same.

    As much as this fandom talks about “all the gay” as an amusing thing, I truly feel that the vast majority of us appreciate the importance of different storylines. I think that having characters and storylines about non-hetero relationships and people is really important and I think it’s great that Defiance is doing it and I really wish it happened more often. I think a lot of shows ought to take a page from our writers’ books. 

    A recent study in the U.S. says 2% of Americans identify as non-heterosexual. Assuming that number is accurate (which I don’t), it means a show with many non-hetero relationships isn’t truly representative of “reality”. And a post-apocalyptic world, people will either not have the same societal hang ups or they will be overly devoted to the days of old.

    While I do think having decent representation at all is massively better than nothing, I think what Defiance does best is something no current show today does - which is to treat the relationships themselves exactly the same irrespective of the genders involved, and THAT, is what I think is more important than anything else.

    For me, it isn’t just representation itself that we need in media. Nor is it the desire for accuracy in numbers. It is the treatment of the relationships as equally important, loving, troublesome, bad, and wonderful as any other relationship can be that matters to me.

Instead of thinking of her as an alien, I chose only to think of her as a woman with different customs and social ideals and I thought it was more useful to look at all the other races (especially the humans) as Alien. (x)
