LITERALLY SAW THIS WHEN I STEPPED OUT MY DORM TONIGHT IM GONNA PEE MY P ANTS
proof korrasami is canon
i work at a gym largely frequented by older women, and today as one of them left after her workout she accidentally pulled the entire door handle off and just slowly looked at her bicep in horror as if she was terrified of her new strength. it was beautiful.
think you should probably lose the my there, that’s the cougar’s house now
that guy you just called sexist? he’s the CEO of a major corporation. that guy you just called racist? he’s a cop. wait hang on I’m seeing something here
The fact that both of these reactions came from males
Doesn’t make them any more meaningful/important than if they came from females
The model on the package, who looks to be about the same age as my daughter, completes the outfit with heeled, calf-high boots — not ideal for running into burning buildings, or trick-or-treating for that matter. The costume is for children four to six and it’s one of several provocative costumes for the age group.
Even the pumpkin costume for preschoolers is sexy: it’s sleeveless and features a black bodice with an orange ribbon that laces up the front like a corset. I found the girls’ firefighter and the police officer costumes the most offensive, as they hung on the rack in stark contrast to the boys’ versions.
What kind of message do these costumes send to our girls? While the boys have costumes that look like the real thing, girls are expected to dress up in spoof ensembles, thus suggesting they can’t, or shouldn’t, do the real job. The costumes are not only “sexy,” they’re also sexist.
This isn’t just about halloween costumes. My incredibly petite 3 year old nephew is currently wearing a shirt for 7 year old girls. It fits him perfectly. On an actual 7 year old girl it’d be skin-tight. Even the most gender-neutral of girls clothing is sexualized and that’s not okay.(via fuckyeahsexeducation)
