These gender reversal exercises are becoming very popular and indeed, they do show up the differences between how men and women are portrayed in the popular media and advertising, the glaring double standards and how women are objectified while men continue to be portrayed as the ones with the active gaze and power.
This ones has a delicious twist to it: the Bondi hipster duo is imitating Miranda Kerr photos with hilarious satirical results. I may have to use this for my upcoming gender lecture!
For what reasons could Joss Whedon endorse Mitt Romney? Well, check this out 😉 Too good!!
Gotta love Joss Whedon…
And on another note… if Mitt Romney gets elected the US of A will surely become the most short-sighted administration to ‘lead the world’. Mind you Obama also failed to mention the environment, I guess it’s just an economic derivative or input with no value except for what we can exploit out of it for our own short-term selfish use. Way to plan for a sustainable, peaceful, equitable future… NOT!
Hahaha never seen the slippery slope argument sent up better than this before.. watch how the Chaser boys on their Hamster Wheel interview Christian protesters at a recent rally against same sex marriage, then turn to Fred Nile.
Polyamory isn’t mentioned, but there are implications for poly too as the slippery slope is often evoked to similarly discredit the possibility of a plural marriage or even the legitimacy of more than two people being in a committed relationship. Except whereas mentioning bestiality in relation to same sex marriage is considered obscene, equating bestiality with polyamory is not yet considered similarly obscene as… you know, polyamory is ‘out there’ and therefore what could those folk be complaining about?
