Rant Against Headlines Slurring Women and Prom Dresses (continued)
This post is a follow-up to my previous post about slurs in headlines calling women and their prom dresses trashy, slutty, and trampy There is a blatant double standard when it comes to the behavior of men versus women as Jessica Valenti , the Editor of Feministing.com and author pointed out right on the cover of her book entitled: " HE'S A STUD, SHE'S A SLUT and 49 Other Double Standards Every Woman Should Know". These double standards are often applied in very inconsistent ways. While pundits, columnists and reporters have referred of late to women and their fashions being "Trashy", "Slutty", "Cheap", and "Trampy", it seems they trip all over themselves trying to get and publish photographs of the women and their outfits. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU HEARD A MALE REFERRED TO IN THE PRESS AS "TRASHY", "SLUTTY", OR "TRAMPY" ? A similar inconsistency seems to have occurred with me. Although some men seem to feel threatened or angered by my male modeling of ladies full brief panties and I may have received an insult here or there, I've never been called any of those things. So far, nobody has been tripping over each other to put my photos on their front pages either even though I posted photos of myself in my full brief panties. NOW I HAVE STARTED A NEW BLOG WITH PHOTO GALLERY entitled: Full Brief Panties Male Modeled with plenty of my photos (back view). Let's see if they call me "trashy, "slutty", "trampy" or trip over each other to put my photos on their front pages. I doubt they will. Sexism, like racism, still needs working on.
