Today’s post is about Sam Pepper, a young man raised in a world where, supposedly, feminism is no longer necessary. But if millenials consider women’s bodies a playing field for winning Youtube views, then maybe feminism is still relevant in the 21st century.
Youtuber Sam Pepper has received a lot of media and Twitter attention since posting his prank video Fake Hand Ass Pinch. The video shows Pepper asking women for directions and pinching their bottoms when they turn around. Pepper wears a fake hand tucked into his pocket in order to divert blame away from himself.
This prank leaves no one laughing. One women he pinches even tells him ”I don’t like that. I don’t like that” when he shows her the fake hand.
Youtube has removed the video. But Sam Pepper has replied with posting another video, showing the same prank but in a gender role reversal where a woman pinches men’s bottoms.
1. Two wrongs do not make one right. Justifying sexual harassment with another act of sexual harassment just doesn’t work out.
2. The two scenarios are not completely comparable. Women sexually harassing men isn’t a symptom of a system that has made men’s bodies into public property. Women as a group suffer cat calling and sexual harassment on a daily basis, without some guy putting it on Youtube, so making a “woman vs. men version” of it isn’t really “gender equality”. Not that any type of sexual harassment in any society would be.
Sam Pepper’s second video has also been removed.

a piece of advice from somebody who’s been through this a few times already: if somebody gives you a bad vibe trust your gut
YES! You can see a midwife instead of a gynecologist (MD) if you never have plans to give birth. Midwives provide care throughout the lifespan. It’s a common misconception that midwives only take for pregnant and birthing patients.
Please come see us for: annual well-person exams, pap smears, birth control, vaginal complaints, breast changes, menstrual questions/concerns, urinary incontinence, menopausal questions/concerns, and on and on…

The awkward thing about actively participating in the fat-positive and plus size fashion communities on Tumblr is that now whenever I see a stylish fat chick when I’m out in public, I have the urge to offer her a high five or give a nod of approval, as though I were “liking” her outfit of the day post, except in real life.
