Imagine the uproar if these kinds of pictures were shown in magazines all the time. But nobody bats a fucking eyelid when we do it to women. Everyone (men (white men)) would be up in arms about ~misandry~ and hypersexualization, but do these dudebro MRAs care that women are subjected to this type of imagery /reversed/ in our own magazines on every second goddamn page? Didn’t think so.
THAT is why these images showing the reversal is important. Dudes will cry “you won’t get people to join your cause if you respond to degradation of your gender by degrading another gender” - no, fuck you. We are sick of the constant hypersexualization, and one photoset relieving us of our plight that makes you uncomfortable is NOTHING compared to what we deal with everyday.
That reminds me so much of the uproar Marina and the Diamonds’ video to “How to be a Heartbreaker” caused. They didn’t want to show the video on American TV, because it a) apparently contained homosexual pictures (oh my God, guys showering in bathing trunks! TOGETHER!) and b) objectified men. It’s really funny how flipping the whole scantily clad women surrounding a guy around makes the audience feel awkward. And with funny I mean sexist and outrageous.
