I keep seeing this meme going around. I’m sure you’ve seen it, too. For example:
This is just further justifying creepy male behavior, right? Am I wrong? I’ve seen a whole bunch of them over the past week, and I generally only follow very liberal, feminist leaning blogs, and yet, here are jokes where the only thing that has agency is the man, and the two women he’s with are turned into objects, robbed of their humanity, and silenced, it’s gross. Not only are the women seen as purely pleasure/sexual objects for the… I don’t know, protagonist seems like the wrong word, but… They are also pitted against one another, as rivals for the all important central idea’s attention/affection. I can’t help but be disgusted by it.
Can we stop?
