Rose McGowan and Azealia Banks say gay men are more sexist than straight men. Is it true? (Video.) | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it
Welcome back to Ask a Homo, a judgment-free zone where the gays of Outward answer questions about LGBTQ politics, culture, etiquette, language, and other queer conundrums. In this week's ripped-from-the-headlines episode, we confront the unsettling notion that gay men might be more sexist or misogynistic than straight men.  If there...

I've written about this before; see “There’s nothing gays hate more than when people treat us like women.”

Graphic abuse, domestic violence in comics

Graphic abuse, domestic violence in comics | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

It’s sad to me just how much this seems like the default setting for how comic books are so often drawn. :\  Here we have a woman in a domestic abuse situation, and we still need to have a gratuitous butt and panty shot.

Apple's "Vagina" Ban is a Bigger Deal Than You Think

Apple's "Vagina" Ban is a Bigger Deal Than You Think | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it
When engraving her new iPad, Justyn Hintze noticed that clit and vagina are considered inappropriate words while penis and dick are not. This may not seem like a big deal, but it represents one of feminism's more important fights.

How Male Sexual Entitlement Hurts Everyone

How Male Sexual Entitlement Hurts Everyone | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

Male sexual entitlement is the belief that men are owed sex on account of their maleness and that female sexuality exist for male pleasure. Why does this happen?

The Truth About "Monster Porn" (NWS)

The Truth About "Monster Porn" (NWS) | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

“Monster porn”, otherwise known as “monster erotica”, “cryptozoological erotica”, and “erotic horror”, should be well-known to fans of this site. These sexy stories employ mythical creatures — everything from vampires, demons, zombies, and other monsters to centaurs, mermaids, leprechauns, and aliens — as sex partners. And apparently this upsets people enough for them to censor such stories. But why?

I don't like to put really adult stuff here -- but the sexism in this really can't be ignored. At least it shouldn't be ignored.

Everyday Sexism Project hits 50,000 entries - what does that tell you?

Everyday Sexism Project hits 50,000 entries - what does that tell you? | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

That these women, and so many more, are suffering these instances of sexism, prejudice, harassment and assault on a daily basis should be an outrage. But it isn't. It's a lifestyle.


The society we live in has normalised the treatment of women as second-class citizens, as disposable objects, as punchlines for jokes. Young girls are growing up learning that it is simply normal to be harassed and touched in their uniform on the journey to school. Rape victims are blamed for what happens to them. Women are used, in advertising, TV shows and magazines, as living, breathing decorations.

Porn & Romance: An Odd Couple?

Porn & Romance: An Odd Couple? | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

While romance novels may seem to be harmless entertainment, they have a darker side. One study found that women who buy into romantic fantasies tend to choose occupations with reduced economic rewards that require less education after high school.


Such women also show little interest in high-status occupations. Living too fully in an unreal world of fantasy and romance can undermine your economic prospects in the real world.


Both hypersexuality and the romance genre of books and movies are part of the New Soft War, because both have negative effects on one very important part of a woman’s anatomy according to the American Psychological Association: her brain.

What Are Women Earning? (And How Are Men Shrinking?)

What Are Women Earning? (And How Are Men Shrinking?) | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

One should also note that this is not simply a matter of “feminism having won, so just let it all go away.” For the findings also reveal that “total family income is higher when the mother, not the father, is the primary breadwinner.” Thanks, pink collar ghetto, unequal pay, and continuing notions of gender inequality in the workplace. Not to mention all the BS traditional notions of motherhood.

 

Never mind the facts, however; let’s just get to the million dollar subtext question Liza Donnelly put forth regarding the 37% — the married mothers who have a higher income than their husbands: Can Husbands Handle Being Outearned By Their Wives?

 

...If you want to dismiss all this as the ramblings of irrelevant talking asshats on Fox (for which I will gently remind you that their rhetoric is often too dangerous to be dismissed), you’ll need to also know about this other study, called In Sickness and In Wealth...
