If you don't agree, speak up, I love a good debate.

Dang… this is 100% true…
Wow, it must feel nice to get to be a victim all the time…
News flash: It’s not 1920 anymore, if you feel like a tramp it’s probably because you want to.
what the character meant is that a woman’s efforts and successes are undermined and often shamed for one reason or another while a man’s means whether honest or not is glorified. like this is johnny guitar (1954) and that argument is so so applicable today when no matter how intelligent and kind and honest your sex life will still be a character reference, where single fathers are “brave” and single mothers are careless bubbleheads whose sons are to be pitied now idk what world you live in buddy to think that women WANT to be victimized in a society in which rape victim blaming is actively on the news
I live in this world, you know, the one that isn’t black and white. Before I berate you I should elaborate on my original post. The original photoset talks about how a man is still considered a man regardless of his actions but a woman can be referred to as ‘less than a woman’ for her sexuality. This, while being accurate and important societal criticism at the time, is not the case anymore.My original point is that only the extreme margins of America still think in this way and that in order to accept the beliefs of the few who want to shame you in the midst of a huge wave of modern sex positive thinking indicates that you (or whoever else still thinks this photoset is still relevant) enjoy being the victim role. I’m not going to go into the character assumptions that can be spewed from this because honestly I don’t know you, but I have a couple of ideas that are probably not far off. Regardless of the fact that you aren’t less of a woman simply because someone says so, people are rarely saying so these days. America simply does not operate the way you seem to think it does. If a woman goes home with a man these days no one thinks (or more accurately I, no one I know, and no one I know of) ‘wow what a slut, I bet she doesn’t have anything else going for her and thats why she has to spread her legs’ (although I have met women that this statement is true for). THAT’S the kind of widespread mindset that this photoset was criticizing.
And as far as your other things you mentioned, “single fathers are ‘brave’ and single mothers are careless bubbleheads” & “rape victim blaming is actively on the news”, these do happen although I’m sure they don’t happen nearly as often as you’d like to think. It’s called Salience Perceptual Bias. There are more than enough instances of men being being blamed for rape, as they should be if they did it (but there’s also a few instances of repeat liars on the subject). And as far as parenting is concerned, women are called bubbleheads if they are bubbleheads. Men are considered unfit if they are unfit. I know several single mothers who have their shit together, but I also know a few who didn’t think the decision through (based on their situation) and the same can be said for men. The difference is that women almost always gain custody of children if they want them (a positive legal bias toward women? How can it be??). The woman would literally have to be homeless or a drug addict, meaning……..the average single father is probably going to be a higher quality parent than the average single mother (if we assumed this was the only way that custody was done, there are of course women that die or leave their families but these are extreme cases).
I think I’m about done here. Feel more than free to reply to critique me, I do so enjoy our little talks :)
Dear capital-F Feminists, Please Stop the Slut-Shaming. Love, a lower-case-f feminist. The first time I heard the funky beats of Robin Thicke in Blurred Lines emanating from my radio, I did what a…
