Sexism in Social Media
In the 4 months since I started this blog, I’ve learnt quite a lot about social media. Possibly my biggest discovery to date is working out that the difference that makes the difference between #everydaysexism and @everydaysexism is, perhaps unsurprisingly good olde fashioned everydaysexism.
I’ve also looked at a similar twitter led phenomenon called #questions for men and how radical feminist Clementine Ford and the media outlets who pandered her propaganda weren’t remotely interested in listening to #answers from men.
Sexism in the Media
Elsewhere I start a new regular section called Glass Eye examining examples of sexism or bias apparent in articles which at first glance appear to be championing concepts of equality. This season I’ve considered the Independent and their priorities on International Woman’s Day, a tall tale about the recession and I-100’s rising star . Dina Rickman’s prolific services to glass spotisim.
I also look at the Daily Telegraph / Radhika Sanghani’s attempt to argue that 2 + 2.4 = 3.4, take a tentative step down the rabbit hole to examine Laura Bates’ conspiracy of silence before tumbling all the way to the bottom and straight thru the other side of the looking glass to discover the Guardian’s extremely Orwellian approach to comment moderation.
For the Uninitiated
Have you ever found yourself being intimidated in a discussion about gender equality because your position has been seemingly demolished by an apparent mountain of research findings? Or perhaps you’re just nodding politely because you don’t really understand what people are actually talking about? My advice to you is don’t be intimidated, get initiated.
Seeing as it’s election season, I’ve written a series of posts on that general theme. I take a look at Mike Buchanan’s Justice for Men party and how they would propose to make this world a better place. In the interest of balance I also consider the possibility of a Feminist party and the very real possibility of a female President
I wrap this season up with a spot of poetry but not before bringing your attention to some other goodies including APEorAlien? #dog&deer Special, wordsofwitwisdom&wonderfromtheworldwideweb and last but not least hold a mirror up to bell-end bloke behavior via my first set of inductions into EYEisBloke’s Hall of Utter Shame.
