lafillemange asked: Sexist jokes are lady-boner killers for me. :(
they are for us too. -____-
not that i should have to defend myself, but there have been a few people who find the latest “Sexism” caption offensive.
here is the reasoning behind it:
yes, i know that institutionally men very much have the upper hand and women have no power to discriminate against men — technically.
but feminism isn’t only a defense of women’s rights: it’s also a defense of the deconstruction of the gender binary that leads to outright discrimination of members of all genders.
men have standards to which they are held, too, and if they do not live up to those standards, they are ostracized and emasculated.
in fact, ANYONE of ANY gender who deviates from said binary suffers those or similar consequences.
the gender binary is a great evil that affects everyone, and it paves the way for other forms of discrimination; against queerness, for example.
