    Default All Things Sexist/ A Resource Thread

    Every day on the internet I see scores of dreadful things happening to women all over the world. I intend to share some of them here in an effort to show that misogyny, sexism are alive and well and there is a real cost of bigotry, misogyny and ignorance. Warning, some articles and images will be graphic.

    Great idea Annie.

    Consciousness raising is the first step in tackling the problem. I really like this cartoon from Sinfest:

    That's an excellent cartoon Naked Ape.

    "The question why I would LET Willow cut her hair. First the LET must be challenged. This is a world where women, girls are constantly reminded that they don't belong to themselves; that their bodies are not their own, nor their power, or self determination. I made a promise to endow my little girl with the power to always know that her body, spirit, and her mind are HER domain. Willow cut her hair because her beauty, her value, her worth is not measured by the length of her hair. It's also a statement that claims that even little girls have the RIGHT to own themselves and should not be a slave to even their mother's deepest insecurities, hopes, and desires. Even little girls should not be a slave to the preconceived ideas of what a culture believes a little girl should be. More to come. Another day.

    I won't be making a distinction between non religious and religious based sexism either. They both have the same results and I would argue are born from the same bigotry.

    the Abraham's religion certainty seemed have exploited sexism even if they did not invent it.
    Just stick to the idea that science tests falsifiable hypotheses to destruction.

    Sweden's Top toys gender reversal in ads. Here.

    "The decision to swap all the genders in its Swedish toy catalogue, notes RT, marks a pretty significant shift for Top Toy, which was called out by a Swedish advertising watchdog for foisting outdated gender roles on boys and girls back in 2008. That same year, Sweden made a national push to promote gender equality in schools, spending some 110 million Swedish crowns ($16.3 million) in an effort that included the introduction of laws requiring teachers to actively help reverse gender stereotypes."

    Domestic Violence an Epidemic in QLD.


    THE Canadian co-founder of the global White Ribbon campaign to end violence against women (Dr Michael Kaufman) has described domestic violence rates in Queensland as an "epidemic" with "horrific levels of violence.

    "This epidemic effects one in 10 Queensland women every day," he said.

    "It's the leading cause of death and disability and illness between women aged between 15 and 44."

    [odd]The immenseness of the universe - and Jesus sitting on the outside worried whether a species, that happens to be alive during a blip on the timeline of existence, is masterbating or not. Priceless.
