#266 Because of Sam Pepper.

365reasonstobeafeminist:

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

Anonymous asked
Can you see a midwife instead of a gyno if you never want to give birth? I feel like I would be more comfortable seeing a midwife for contraception and check-ups, but I don't ever plan on being pregnant. So is that okay? Or do midwives just see patients who are pregnant?

themidwifeisin:

Hey ANON! 

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.

The next time you see someone with jewelry that says “trust no man,” don’t judge them for their “man hating” or “bougie” ways. Rather, commend them for their superb taste in music.

“Trust no man” is actually a reference to a reference to a 1926 song of the same name by Gertrude “Ma” Rainey, a Georgian and African-American pioneer of blues music. 

I want all you women to listen to me

Don’t trust your man no further than your eyes can see

I trusted my man with my best friend

But that was a bad bargain in the end

A feminist before there was really a term for it, Rainey was also notorious for getting into trouble with small-town authorities over her “women-only parties.” She was a brazen lady-lovin’ badass well-worthy of a 21st century signal boost.

Ma Rainey literally had a song Prove it On Me Blues where she pretty much said “I’m a big fat lesbian but you’re never going to catch me and if you dont think thats some of the dopest shit i dont wanna talk to you

Tis a big and beautiful worldMost of us live and die in the same corner where we were born and never get to see any of it…

(9.23.14) — Another morning in Amerikkka. Somebody thought it would be fun to desecrate the Mike Brown Memorial early this morning. I… I really can’t even. #staywoke #farfromover

Here’s a picture of some cops watching the memorial burn although there seemed to be no police at the scene when the fire department arrived.

I feel sick.
