destroy the idea of the “average father” coveting his daughter’s virginity and “protective brother” making sure no men lay their unholy eyes upon his sister who has given them full permission.

slaughter the idea that men are allowed to be gatekeepers for sex and have a duty or a right to “save women from themselves” when it comes to sex

kill the purity myth

Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.

(Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us).

Jessica Rey - The Evolution of the Swim Suit

She is hot.

the irony of that last post… smh. Yes, obviously that was the takeaway you should have had, considering her discussion on objectification. Her hotness.

Are you serious right now? ugh.

Anonymous asked:

How do you feel about the pressure from society of finishing college within 4 years before 22? Do you feel that it's rushing people and just putting more stress upon students instead of allowing them to go at their own pace because of financial burdens and such?

Nunca olvides quién eres. Answer:

I have so many feelings about the US higher education system.

  • It’s ridiculous to expect a 17-year-old to know what they want to do with the rest of their life.
  • It’s even more absurd to ask them to gamble their entire financial future on this decision.
  • The children of the rich are at a huge advantage here (as they are everywhere) as they can afford to take 5 or more years to finish, switching majors if/when their interests change, and they don’t have to take any paying job they can upon graduation, as they don’t have to worry about loans coming due.
  • We’re told to get a degree so we can get a job, but getting a degree (even an advanced degree) is no guarantee of employment.
  • Students are encouraged to attend the best *name* school that will accept them, and then berated when they have to take out loans to attend.
  • OR they go the cheapest route and are treated as less than because they don’t have the *name* school pedigree.
  • Basically everything you can learn in university classes you can learn from reading for free at a public library, and discussing online or in person - you can even listen to university lectures free with streaming services like iTunes - but the learning doesn’t matter, the paper does.
  • Graduating college is a class/status symbol, not proof that graduates actually engaged with the material or learned critical thinking. It’s certainly not a predictor of who will work hard or excel in their careers.

As children we are more often then not that our genitals are dirty, or should be hidden, that if we touch them other then to clean ourselves that we are dirty, or disgusting, or perverse. So we develop a feeling of shame about our bits. Then as we get older we see in sex ed. Text books genitals…
