sexism

The term ‘simp’ has become a common word in many people’s vocabulary after social media influencers brought the concept to light. However, it has created an incredibly toxic environment that implies women are lesser than men, and men are shamed for treating women with decency.

My boyfriend and I have tried watching porn together for the last few months, but everything seems sexist. I try to get into it, but every time I just keep thinking about racial and social inequalities, and were the actors paid enough, and was anyone exploited and, well, you get the point.

Many professional athletes also feel that the femininity and therefore the validity of a woman is questioned the minute she enters sports. As former Olympic gold medallist in downhill skiing Kerrin Lee-Gartner identifies, the competitiveness needed to compete is celebrated among young boys, but frowned upon for young girls.

But, at the end of the day, who cares. Ladies, let’s embrace our love of sex, masturbation, and all things freaky, and create a world where women don’t need to feel ashamed of what feels good.

Although the title may be off-putting to some, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend might be the most feminist show on television at the moment. It continuously critiques inequality, especially the sexist tropes that are common to most romantic comedies. The show also delves into other issues, such as mental illness, all while staying light-hearted with numerous catchy songs each episode.

In addition to putting a ban on age-inappropriate roles, from now on, actors will be required by law to take on roles that closely correspond to their gender, socioeconomic status, sexuality, and temporal designation.

Even more troubling than these cases are the many one-bedroom apartments and completely vacant houses that are female preferred. There is no reasonable explanation for this other than sexism.
