The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…
Girls don’t let anyone tell you loving yourself is vanity.
“You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for you own pleasure.” ― John Berger, Ways of Seeing

The only accurate way to report that 1 out of 4 Americans are skeptical of global warming is to say: A poll finds that 1 out of 4 Americans are wrong about something.

The men's rights movement could have done so much. It could have stood up for the rights of disabled men, men of color, trans men, gay men, abused men, men that are victims of rape/sexual assault, ect. But instead it is an anti-feminist movement that makes our points about men instead of making their own points.
There are SO MANY FUCKED UP THINGS in our society that affect men, but MRAs just use it as an excuse to harass feminists and derail their efforts to help women. If they actually cared about helping men rather than attacking women, the phrase “men can be victims of rape” would be more common than “men can be victims of rape, too!!!!!”
You don’t actually care about men’s issues if you’re just using them as a means to perpetuate your misogyny
