I find it weird that our culture has sexualised every inch of the female body to the point where it’s now had to resort to sexualising an empty space between our thighs

Thigh gaps are not in any way sexualised by our culture. Ask any man and he doesn’t give a shit if a girl has a thigh gap or not. A lot of young girls aspire to have thigh gaps because many models have them and depending on your body shape it can be almost impossible or naturally easy to obtain one. ‘Sexualisation’ has nothing to do with it. Men aren’t exactly ‘turned on’ by a thigh gap. Just as men aren’t turned on by eating disorders. Becoming so skinny that you have a thigh gap has not been in any way sexualised by our culture- if anything it is against the norm and is not something the media promotes but young girls fantasize over.

Bless this entirely. But it’s sickening how WE have to be the ones to correct the guys’ actions. Because being a decent human being is out of the question apparently.

Taken from the source article:

“What men need is a wake-up call: You’re the problem. If not you personally, then your best friend, a coworker, or that dude in your fantasy football league is. You’re making us feel unsafe every day, in a thousand different ways. To help you better identify your harassing behavior, we’ve illustrated the most common types of misogynists—along with the comebacks from us you might not get, given the trap-door spideriness of your attacks, but which you certainly deserve.”

Why are people so scared of murder? Y’all should feel pride that someone risked life in jail just to kill you

My main problem with “consent is sexy” is that it coerces girls and women into giving consent. Just look at it reversed: “If you say no, you’re not sexy.”

Enough with the sexualization of every little thing pertaining to women and girls and that includes the women’s liberation movement’s narrative and praxis.

Why do girls always feel like they have to apologize for giving an opinion or taking up space in the world? Have you ever noticed that?” Nicole asked. “You go on websites and some girl leaves a post and if it’s longer than three sentences or she’s expressing her thoughts about some topic, she usually ends with, ‘Sorry for the rant’ or ‘That may be dumb, but that’s what I think.

What people don’t understand is when we say “Teach men not to rape,” we’re not talking about telling them not to jump out of the bushes in a ski mask and grab the nearest female. We’re talking about the way we teach boys that masculinity is measured by power over others, and that they aren’t men unless they “get some.” We’re talking about teaching men (and women) that it’s not okay to laugh at jokes about rape and abuse. We’re talking about telling men that a lack of “No” doesn’t mean “Yes,” that if a woman is too drunk to consent they shouldn’t touch her, that dating someone - or even being married to someone - does not mean automatic consent. We’re talking about teaching boys to pay attention to the girl they’re with, and if she looks uncomfortable to stop and ask if she’s okay, because sometimes girls don’t know how to say stop in a situation like that. We’re talking about how women have the right to change their mind. Even if she’s been saying yes all night, if she says no, that’s it. It’s over. That’s what we mean when we say “Teach men not to rape.”

YES. So stop saying, “People know not to rape. It’s obvious.” Because in our culture, it’s really, really not. We’ve gotta change that.

9/10 times “I hate feminists” means “I totally don’t understand what feminism is and I hate a media-based stereotype of feminism that represents almost no real feminists.”
