Last week, I was asked to write a piece about sexism on the internet.
I didn’t think it would be a particularly difficult task – after all, how often do you come across websites so retrograde that they stir deep hatred of our depraved, misogynist society that you didn’t even know you had in you? Other blogs had done all the hard work for me by putting together a selection of the very worst of the internet – from “Misogynistic Lyrics That Aren’t Rap” (does what it says on the tin) to my personal favourite, Bitch Make Me A Sandwich, in which tweets from people who post the hilarious phrase “make me a sandwich, bitch” on their accounts are paired with another one of their often mundane and revealing tweets.
“25 Ways To Seduce A Man”; “What Men Want (and How to Give it to Them)”; “Recipes for Seducing Your Man”; “Makeup Looks Men Love”; etc.
Pretty much every article I came across offered female readers advice on ways to improve their looks or their whole self for the benefit of men.
By demeaning women, it demeans men too, as they are perceived as the gullible recipients of endless seduction techniques, and reinforces the common assumption they are only capable of shallow sexual relationships void of any real emotional attachment.
When you connect to a website through our web proxy, you aren't actually connecting to the website you're viewing.
Proxy will connect to the website and pass it back along to you.
Oddly enough, though, the raunchy blogs I was expecting didn’t come up.
No – I’d poke the internet incessantly, as if to provoke it to hand me its very worst, and yet I would inevitably be directed to the one and only supposedly empowering, iconic magazine for “fun, fearless females” that, ironically, included all the wicked keywords: Cosmopolitan.From donating pizza to our events to proceeds from pizza sales, Sexy Pizza has been an outstanding community partner.Owner, Kayvan Khalatbari, has gone above and beyond to support people who inject drugs (PWID) in Denver by donating his time and energy to our Board of Directors. ” How degrading and insulting to both sexes, and what a range of antiquate stereotypes emerges!
