There’s no point to a guy yelling, “Hey sexy baby” at me out of the passenger window of a car as it speeds past. Even if I was into creepy misogynists and wanted to give him my number, I couldn’t. The car didn’t even slow down. But that’s okay, because he wasn’t actually hitting on me. The point wasn’t to proposition me or chat me up. The only point was to remind me, and all women, that our bodies are his to stare at, assess, comment on, even touch. “Hey sexy baby” is the first part of a sentence that finishes, “this is your daily message from the patriarchy, reminding you that your body is public property”.

Here’s why it’s a terrible idea to let your kids watch Fox News.
While commenting on a female perpetrator fleeing to Canada after committing statutory rape, a Fox correspondent said this:
"If you’re a sixteen-year-old kid and you have sex with your best friend’s mom you usually get high-fives."
And Jesse Watters didn’t stop there.
"She’s not that attractive so you might not have that kind of reception … She’s not Debra Lafave.” 
This isn’t the first time a man on Fox’s Outnumbered downplayed the seriousness of statutory rape. For reference, see: Tucker Carlson, who told America to "lighten up" on the crime and said that men understand that sexual harassment from a female teacher is the "greatest thing that ever happened." A month later he attacked a kid for reporting statutory rape as "whiny."
We’re seeing a trend here, and it’s Fox’s glorification of crimes against America’s youth. This is especially problematic when an estimated 1 in 6 men go through unwanted or abusive sexual experiences before they turn 18.

How rape culture handles male victims.

This is true. I saw a documentary about it. Men’s orgasm faces are allowed in teenage comedies rated PG13, but women’s orgasm faces can often push it into NC-17 territory, no joke. [x]

This is pretty much the equation:

women receiving abuse = PG-13/R

women receiving pleasure = R/NC-17

there is a whole documentary about women vs men and sex vs violence and film ratings. i recommend it

The Documentary is called “This Film Is Not Yet Rated”

Always reblog.

Partially because I love her.

women receiving abuse = PG-13/R

women receiving pleasure = R/NC-17

women receiving abuse = PG-13/R

women receiving pleasure = R/NC-17

women receiving abuse = PG-13/R

women receiving pleasure = R/NC-17


Let that sink in.

welp.

"This Film is Not Yet Rated" will change the way you look at movies and the MPAA and make you really really angry! The MPAA(people who rate movies) don’t have any real written down guideline for how they rate movies and it’s up to their discretion on how a movie gets rated and what the director can cut or keep it. 

WATCH THIS FILM!!!!
