Going Coastal
If men’s kindnesses toward women were really only kindnesses, a man would be pleased if another man or woman offered these kindnesses to him. He would be pleased if another man or woman lit his cigarette or pulled out his chair for him. He would be pleased to derive his income, prestige, power and even his identity from his partner. He would take pride in another man’s or woman’s offer to walk him to his car at night. But in fact, “one of the very nasty things that can happen to a man is his being treated or seen as a woman, or womanlike.
(Frye 1983, p. 136).”

Yeah!  This reality hit me a few months ago when a teenage boy at work said to another teenage boy, “ladies first!” in order to insult him.  Chivalry is not about respect or kindness.

Yes!  All women should escape from their stories and get on the back of a flying dude and fly off together. :D

Anon asks:


(Can you make this Anon please? It’s more of an ask than a submission, but it’s too long for the box)
Thank you for your added commentary to that post on food. I was on food stamps last year and before that had weeks where I barely ate anything unless my s.o. was around/willing to help me carry food home from the pantry (no car). It is always really personally insulting to see my very well-off friends talk about how “easy” it is to eat local and cut out gmos, as well as post images and links to related material that could be seen as judgmental to people who eat “bad” foods for whatever reason, not just financially. I am also critical on the food industry and I know I am more privileged than most people (white, cis, currently have some financial security), but I wish I could tell my friends how they sound to me. They are not mean or bad people, it’s just that they grew up very well-off this topic isn’t something they’ve ever really had to think about. Not many people know that I was having trouble financially last year and only a select few know I was using SNAP (not even my family knows). I guess the question is, how can I discuss this topic with these friends without sounding mean, or make them feel bad about their own diets?

Followers?


Remind them that you are their friend and you deserve the same thoughtfulness and courtesy you’ve shown. You don’t want to make them feel bad, so tell them not to passively make you feel bad.

Women in Science Interactive

Women in Science, a new interactive tool, presents the latest available data for countries at all stages of development. Produced by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics, the tool lets you explore and visualize gender gaps in the pipeline leading to a research career, from the decision to get a doctorate degree to the fields of research women pursue and the sectors in which they work.

Dude, you’re so edgy and politically incorrect. it’s totally ironic and satirical how you regurgitated those ancient and threadbare stereotypes. It reminds me of my great great great great grandpa, Cracker von Patriarch, who also challenged the status quo by embracing it with loving tenderness.
