La vita è tutto quello che succede tra una magnata e l’altra
Patriarchal notions of manhood don’t just harm women, they hurt men. Toxic definitions of masculinity lead to well-documented problems like high rates of gun violence, suicide and sexual violence. That’s why organizations like the Representation Project are committed to advancing the discussion about how gender limits the freedoms of both women and men. They recognize that society’s gender ideals aren’t only damaging for women; they’re universally harmful.
Their latest video examines how stereotypes constrain all people from the moment they are born.
Well there’s that.
I, for one, am sick of that excuse. If capitalism is a disease, everything and everyone is infected. Look around the room you’re in and tell me with absolute certainty that there’s nothing in it that was stitched by child-slaves in the developing world, or sold to you by exploited workers from the kind of company that thinks “sick pay” is the name of a minor 90s grunge band. There is almost no way to exist in this society without being contaminated by capitalism, unless you spend your whole life lying down in the dark, in a recycled rattan coffin, being drip-fed organic vegan mulch by a succession of fairly paid assistants, and if you do, I’m sure you’ll feel great about yourself, but people will still make fun of you, and you won’t be a step closer to changing the world.
