The gender gap of clothes

clothing

 

clothing on women is an invitation to rape

clothing on men is an invitation to comment on his social capability

 

 

I am not seeing the comparible here

 

he is not on his own time, he was on work time – where there are other people in the workplace and work is time to be a grown up

 

 

women on their own time, wearing what they want, is an invitation to be gazed upon.

 

not harassed, assaulted raped or murdered.

 

 

 

Clothing conveys much about the person wearing them,

 

 

if rape and murder is someone’s response to that, then that’s where the problem is.

 

 

Do you think this a good idea, or a step in the wrong direction?
TORONTO – The director of the new Canadian Centre for Men and Families says he is against “dangerous” behaviour and actions by “extremists” that take away from the ability to have a genuine conversation about gender issues.Justin …

  • Nina Tryggvason if they are saying men are victims then there’s an issue. if they are teaching mean about accountibility…… it is not hard for men to access services and be taken seriously so I do not really get this
    • MAN so men can’t be abused by women? yeah, right. I’ve seen it happen with my own eyes, so please don’t tell me it doesn’t exist okay? if that doesn’t agree with your politics, too bad. reality sucks, get use to it.
    • MAN 2 You’re victim shaming, Nina. Men are people too
    • Nina Tryggvason I have a hard time crying for the minority victim groups when the majority still struggle for crediblity.
       I am questioning not denying or shaming and you are not a credible debater since you attacked me rather than being on topic – another reason why “men” lack victim cred
      here’s the thing – yes – anyone one of us can be victimized by someone else.
      the abuser is the problem
      women have ways to abuse men – they tend to be emotional and psychological
      men have ways to abuse women – they tend to be physically and sexually violent
      no one should be victimized
      fighting for more victim than thou, when the statistics are clear and settled the issue
      doesn’t let us move to the conversation where we can actually end the abuse
      and not believing victims is the hardest part of ever coming forward
      He wore a shirt that is not workplace appropriate.
      He is entitled to opinion and expression but that doe not deny response. Free speech is not limited to first speech.
      Putting his genius quirkiness as the excuse for his lack of social skills is not acceptable.
      Saying women are wrong to be bothered by the shirt, and what it symbolizes, while being told to avoid rape…..
      When politicians think they get to regulate women’s bodies and not men’s
      Republic Rape 2
      I don’t know why women are heterosexual at all
      what men fear the most from women is being laughed at
      what women fear most from men is being murdered
      I don’t think that that is funny at all.

Mz M: You Ain’t Divine

 

Bette Midler laments that gay culture has gone mainstream and is ‘sort of ordinary now’
‘The extreme characters you used to see in the old days, you just don’t see them anymore, and I really do miss them’
 
Dear Mz Midler
in most places in the world, being queer will get you killed.
even in America, where people are hunkered down in their homes with hoarded food, gold and weapons waiting for an excuse to open fire on their neighborhood
it is not safe for gays
hollyweird is not the world
the old stereotypes were that and they were not role models for gays when heteronormative culture required that any gay love story end in one returning to heternormality or dead. usually suicide in sacrifice to force the other to be normal, to remove temptation
Ms Midler you are a tourist to our ghetto you are not a member
and no one wants to be ghettoized
you are not Divine

Workplace Violence

Originally posted on Nina's Garden:

Why (it) makes sense

(it) as a solution is incomprehensible to most people. We stand on the sidelines, shake our heads and wonder how any situation can get that bad’ that (it) seems reasonable.

Thankfully, it’s because most people are not ever in a situation where (it) is the only remaining option to correct the major issue.

At the beginning of any situation, there’s a lot of conditions, information to take into consideration and the solution is similarly unlimited.

The longer that the situation continues, the higher the stakes become. Higher stakes narrow the issues to the critical ones, which means events and information become not relevant.

As the stakes escalate, and more people are involved, the situation also escalates; moving from being between two people as an incident issue to two people in a relationship conflict.

If the matter isn’t resolved at the relationship level, then the stakes and…

Trauma and Justice

Originally posted on Nina's Garden:

I’ve had a few days to tenderly hold the realization that I am not deserving of punishment, to protect it from harsh wind, to savour the smokey smell and to slowly blow the flames of realization into meaningfulness.

After three years of being subjected to “alleged workplace bullying”, I realize that I have been Pavlovian programmed to expect punishment for anything that I do; no matter what I do.

This is the level of general anxiety that I’ve been living with, and it arose from the disproportionate responses to my actions and statements. Why I crumble in the face of mere resistance, why I’ve been unable to assert myself.

Because asserting yourself is to say that you matter – and the way that I have experienced how I have been treated – bullied, threatened, given no meaningful work but rather duplicate or busy work and when these weren’t enough to…

Post #1000 – Celebrate Riff

it’s not enough to understand your role and your rights in your society

nothing to judge or be offended by

people who they are by the particulars of their birth circumstances

and they become what they are based on their experience in the world

and not everyone has had a good experience – and that’s usually what they reflect back in the world – by playing small and mean to everyone they think had it easier than them or small and mean to anyone that they think they can get away with as if it’s their cosmic payback bonus for the crap that the universe heaped on them.

Three

Originally posted on Nina's Garden:

I have an idea that I am having difficulty fleshing out

but something keeps telling me that the difference between

a monotheism and pantheism

is that under a monotheism, that it’s just men who create the god and the rules, so they can arrange the world how they want it to be.

whereas with a pantheon, both men and women create the gods and goddesses, the stories and the rules and cultural norms.

I think that women are more likely to create collective style religions, with three being significant, the maid, mother and crone

and that the christian trinity of the father son and ghost is a cheap attempt to force female values into a male top down religion, which is partly why many christian sects don’t bother with this trinity and it makes little sense, it doesn’t belong and wasn’t well incorporated

Religion and Science

Originally posted on Nina's Garden:

Religion is an idea of how to explain the world and every culture has come up with their own explanation of the world and religion is a means to interact with, appease, appeal or influence the forces or idea of what makes things happen in the world.

Science is not about that – science is about understanding how the world operates – so we can alter our behaviour to mitigate or take advantage of how it actually works – with no appeals to said forces because they are not presumed to be sentient or aware of us.

So they really have different approaches to discovering our place

and given that there are things that religions through history once explained and now science does – like volcanos, crop harvests, weather, life events and the math of random chance

but that there is nothing that science once explained that is better explained…

Rape is an Epic Fail and never legit

Originally posted on Nina's Garden:

Mostly, this is because of religions that say sex is bad.

people deny themselves, get all messed up over sex and develop pyschotic control freak attitudes about it.

sex is both physically and mentally healthy for you. masturbation is the ultimate safe sex.
but the energy and intimacy between two or more people, as per your preferences and legitmate access to. Including whether you’re really in an open relationship or not…

well, that’s really only the business of the people invited and no one else is entitled to force their values or opnions into laws that other people have to abide by.

the ability to chose what do do with and to and in our bodies is to each of us individually.

personal sovereignty. it’s what secular democracy is all about.

any one who seeks to control the personal behaviours of others, is substantially, but not technically breaking the law…
