Nic seemed dead set on defending some guys who were explaining a tabletop game to two girls in a patronizing manner. (“Just pick the prettiest card.)”

And fellows wonder why girls get uncomfortable around them.

Most dudes don’t like that I don’t talk about sex.
I keep details to myself. My memory - my mental record is more vivid than any picture and any re- telling. Someone wanting to be intimate with me makes me feel special.

And I’m keeping that.





Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.

(Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us).

Anything that men promote as empowering for women is always degrading…

I refuse to think this is hard-wired. My brain functions are my own. People wear bikinis. People.
