  2. most women’s studies are usually gender and women’s studies classes so I was just curious

    we do focus pretty heavily on gender stuff but it’s also very base level material. for example: last week we had a panel where some queer kids associated with the department came in and answered some questions about their identities and experiences, and one of the people went by they/them pronouns. someone in the class had to ask what that meant and how to use them.

  3. are you gonna talk in class about how that’s kinda vaguely cissexist??

    well probably not because

    a. the article was written in 1992 so we’ll probably spend more time focusing on the fact that it’s outdated culturally and then the main idea that phallocentric language points to a phallocentric society, esp considering the types of metaphors associated with the penis and which are considered “positive” or “negative” socially

    b. the article isn’t about having a penis its more about the words people (the article has 2 samples, male and female college students) use and what it reflects about the status they place on the penis

    c. this is an intro class and while the prof has mentioned many times in many discussions that trans and intersex people do exist and that their problems have special relevance in most of our discussions he has also said (to me, outside of class discussion) that we just don’t have time to delve into the specific considerations of each identity for each topic, and that there are other classes in the department that DO talk about it more heavily or focus mainly on that. we’re already almost running over every class because he has to target his discussions at the least common denominator in terms of gender/sexuality knowledge. one of the girls who sits near me, who’s a women and gender studies major, didn’t know what cisgender meant. these people don’t know that much about all this, and he’s trying to raise them up to a base level of knowledge

    but yeah i get what you’re saying

  4. thank you women’s studies for making me read a 16 page paper on penis terms in the american lexicon

nortonism:

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…

YES.

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
