Feminism, transferred from Pinterest

Oh, I don’t know. I’m tired of Pinterest. It doesn’t really work for what I want to do. You have to sign up. Sigh.

So now I’ll transfer some of my stuff here!

The Mako Mori Test: ‘Pacific Rim’ inspires a Bechdel Test alternative


‘Pushy’ Is Used to Describe Women Twice as Often as Men – Women seen as pushy, men as condescending.


Bechdel test – 2 women talking about not men.


Zelda – Sammenligning.


For every girl who is tired of acting weak when she is strong, there is a boy tired of appearing strong when he feels vulnerable… – From The Outspoken Witch. Mysogyny hurts everyone.


The massive feminist linkdump, by request – This is my own resource for when someone says “sexism doesn’t exist in [insert field here], because I haven’t seen it”. It’s statistics and studies as well as essays; both hard facts and theory, if you will, and they correspond to the arguments I usually face myself. They’re usually of the type “there’s no imbalance/there isn’t a demand/it’s all in your head”; so here are some statistics and studies for that. The other type is “but it’s only a vocal minority who harasses people/so explain to me how this is bad/why is this important anyway?” So here are some essays for that.


Still not asking for it


Cover posing – Jim C. Hines posing as a female on a cover, several examples.


LC on Rape and Self Defense – Does self defense work against rape? Does education?


Speaking and interruptions during primary care office visits – Female residents interrupted their patients less often than did male physicians. All residents interrupted female patients more often than male patients.


The great gender debate: Men will dominate 75% of the conversation during conference meetings, study suggests


Why Women Aren’t Funny – Women and jokes: Slower to get it, more pleased when they do, and swift to locate the unfunny.


On Twitter, Men Are Retweeted Far More Than Women (And You’re Probably Sexist, Too) – But twee-q isn’t there anymore.


Study: Deciding by consensus can compensate for group gender imbalances – Why women speak less when they’re outnumbered.


Lead Actresses Get Less Screen Time Than Lead Actors, Because Hollywood Is a Sexist Sh*thole


Tropes vs. Women in Video Games


GENDER AND DEMOCRACY IN COMPUTER-MEDIATED COMMUNICATION – A tendency is noted for a minority of male participants to effectively dominate discussions both in amount of talk, and through rhetorical intimidation.


Stop Saying “I Have a Boyfriend” To Deflect Unwanted Attention – Male privilege is “I have a boyfriend” being the only thing that can actually stop someone from hitting on you because they respect another male-bodied person more than they respect your rejection/lack of interest.


Enough for today. More later.
