Today in “Holy Shit, Hypocrisy”, kick ass Twitter user @CardsAgstHrsmt has been posting Tweets from dudebros which say one thing…and then some pictures of them that say something else:
Yup. Women who pose half-naked lose the respect of dudes who happily post pictures of themselves…half-naked?!? Really?
Just look at them, shameless and proud of their near nakedness, posting pictures and showing off. Would you want your kid to bring such hussies home all like, “I want to marry him!”. Nay, I say, nay! Just look at how little respect these men have for themselves!
Wait, what was that? I shouldn’t hold these men to the same standards as they’re holding women? Why, I wonder? It’s not like there’s a double standard at play OH WAIT YES THERE IS!
See, boys (may I call you boys? Tough, I’m calling you boys), what you’re doing is what most mature adults would call “Being a hypocritical jackwagon”. I’m going to assume that you probably are very aware of it, and are exploiting the fact that it’s a-okay for you to pose half-naked and get no shit for it, while a woman doing the same thing would be buried under the weight of the shit she would receive: creepy comments, harassment, calls of “slut” and “whore”, etc. And heaven forbid if a woman held the same standards as you do.
“It’s just the way it is!” some folks will argue. “It’s a double standard, but there’s nothing we can do about it! It’s natural/human nature/*insert other evo psych bullshit here*!”
The only ones holding up that double standard are you, while the rest of us are trying to get past that sort of nonsense. How many of these assholes (or those who nod right along in agreement) might have Tumblrs full of half naked women to wank to? Are any of them fans of upskirt/downshirt pics? Then it takes some damn nerve to judge anyone who volunteers to show off their bodies with the same pride these guys show off their pecs, abs, and chest?
My flabber is gasted. Or it would be if I wasn’t oh so painfully aware of sexism. Do better boys.
Or at least cover up. I can see your nipples.*
*Obvious Disclaimer is Obvious: Yes, I know the answer isn’t for everyone to actually put clothes on, but for everyone to be free enough to wear whatever amount of clothing they want, snap photos, and post them on any social media site they have access to. Duh. Now you don’t have to argue for/against it in the comments. Cheers!
