|Jun. 20th, 2012 @ 10:37 pm To those who complain about "portrayal of females in media"|
|1) It boils down to the new feminist rule: Only women are allowed to find anything sexually attractive; only men are allowed to BE sexually attractive. Any variation on this equation is to be called “sexist.” |
This, it should not have to be said, is crap.
2)women and men are different, YAY. That includes in what constitutes sexy. Muscular men, curvy women— sexy. Curvy men, muscular women– not sexy. The fact that you are throwing a temper tantrum about how "you never see MEN posing like this" just underlines that you can't tell the difference between women and men and lowers everyone's estimation of your IQ.
3)Why is it that portrayals of ridiculously ideal women is such a peril to the self-esteem of young girls everywhere— yet portrayals of ridiculously ideal men are NOT a peril to the self-esteem of young men? Are you really willing to admit that women are emotionally weaker than men, or do you want to admit to a double standard? Because either one looks like a losing option for you.
If you want to be treated "equally," that means you need to do what you keep telling put-upon men to do--- you need to toughen up and get over it, and stop running off to your stupid girlfriends to sit around having a crying jag.
