Today in having to state the bleeding obvious: "A study reveals sexism makes women fearful."

A study published this month in the journal Sex Roles reveals that some of the sexism women face – from catcalling and sexual harassment to sexual objectification and violence – makes women generally more fearful and anxious. The researchers from the University of Missouri-Kansas and Georgia Sta...

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

Apple's "Vagina" Ban is a Bigger Deal Than You Think | Let's Get Sex Positive | 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.

The Truth About "Monster Porn"

The Truth About "Monster Porn" | Let's Get Sex Positive | 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?

Gracie Passette's insight:

Is sexism part of the latest uproar? It just might be.

Sexism Takes The Sexy Out Of Cosplay

Sexism Takes The Sexy Out Of Cosplay | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

This affects things like cosplay too. Some say that the mainstreaming of cosplay has created a sexist and hypersexualized aura surrounding the hobby. They say that “surge of ‘fake geek girls’” who are “pretty and wearing something revealing” are quickly “labeled cosplay ‘celebrities’ and are featured on dozens of websites” as authorities to the detriment of other costumers and hobbiests. In other words, the media packaging of traditional beauty standards have gotten in the way of the fun for everyone in cosplay.

Sexism In The Gambling Industry

Sexism In The Gambling Industry | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

With all the talk about sexism in gaming, I think it's time to discuss the sexism in gambling. Everyone knows that the number of female gamblers are increasing, just as it is in gaming; but where are the casinos, online or real world destinations, which cater to these women?

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

What Are Women Earning? (And How Are Men Shrinking?) | Let's Get Sex Positive | 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...
