Whenever I have a discussion about feminism and/or sexism with guys, I fail at the point at which I say that women are GENERALLY in a weaker position then men BECAUSE THIS IS HOW OUR SOCIETY WORKS and they simply don’t believe me.
How can I explain it to them? How?
How can I make them SEE what they don’t WANT to see?
- Employer: So, do you have any experience in sales?
- Me: I once sold oregano to some middle schoolers who thought it was pot.
You can tell a girl she’s smart her whole life, encourage her in school, buy her a chemistry set, send her to math camp, help her apply for college scholarships in STEM fields, and she’s still eventually going to walk into a classroom, a lab, or a job interview and have some man dismiss her existence, deny her funding, pass her over for a promotion, or take credit for her work. How about you work on getting those assholes out of power and quit telling me not to call girls pretty.
Well, damn. Italian artist Marcello Barenghi draws incredibly realistic everyday objects that appear almost three dimensional simply with the help of colored pencils.
