Nancy Jo? This is Alexis Neiers calling. I’m calling to let you know how disapp.. Fuck. Nancy Jo, this is Alexis Neiers. I’m calling to let you know how disappointed I am in your story. How horrible you shit on me- (YOU LIED!) Would you stop? (YOU FUCKING LIED!) STOP IT! Stop it, mom. (YOU LIED!) STOP! GOD DAMNIT! Nancy Jo, this is Alexis Neiers calling. I’m calling to let you know how disappointed I am in your story. There’s many things that I read in here that were false. Like you saying that I wore six inch Louboutin heels to court with my tweed skirt, when I wore four inch little brown bebe shoes. (TWENTY NINE DOLLARS!) EVERY TIME YOU FUCKING YELL I HAVE TO RERECORD IT!

The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…

YES.

Girls don’t let anyone tell you loving yourself is vanity.

“You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for you own pleasure.” ― John Berger, Ways of Seeing

I was doing my readings for one of my courses, on “Intimate Relations” and today was the chapter on attraction. There were two pages dedicated to what men are attracted to in a woman, and apparently, across the board in all cultures and races, men want a woman with a smaller waist to hip/breast ratio. No matter what you weigh, all you need is for your waist to be the smallest point. Like an hourglass. 

Too bad this is what I look like.

How many pages were devoted to what women are attracted to in a man?

I am reminded of a post I saw on Jezebel about some OKCupid stats showing that men from age 20-50 pretty universally preferred woman between 20 and 22. In comparison women tended to prefer men around their own age.

The author was like “blah blah blah can we stop obsessing over what MEN want in a woman! For fucks sake.”

I think that’s a pretty good attitude.

About a page? Maybe a paragraph?

But from the data they presented they were basically saying “women want men that are just as attractive as them, unless the man has money, then they’ll date an uglier man, but men don’t date a less attractive woman because they can always upgrade”.

It’s not like it’s 100% conclusive data or anything, it’s hard to quantify attraction and relationships because there’s always exceptions, but these are the patterns they presented.

so Charlotte Bronte read Emma by Jane Austen and was really interested in this minor character named Jane Fairfax who was poor and would have been a governess had she not married well and then Bronte wrote her own novel exploring the plight of the poor governess who married this guy named Edward Fairfax Rochester in a novel called Jane Eyre and my point is don’t let anyone tell you shit about fanfiction.

"Please stop selling shirts carelessly" wtf are they supposed to interview the people buying them like what does this dude want

you KNOW if he saw a dude wearing it he would not have said anything, he’d assume the guy knew the music, because this is not about music snobbery it’s about men thinking women are fucking idiots, and behaviour like this REINFORCES that belief because this guy will harass and belittle women, finding them to be “wrong” but he will leave men alone ASSUMING that they are “right” thereby providing himself with skewed inaccurate evidence to prove that women are idiots, completing the vicious cycle of misogyny that so many men perpetuate daily but are COMPLETELY FUCKING BLIND TO

I see your points.
