VOILA ! Ficklefandoms: peonymoonflower: supercargautier:... | Derrière la porte. Oui, on peut être charmant et sexiste en même temps  |  blogue Originel. Photo : Istock Un homme ne peut pas être sexiste s’il adore les femmes et qu’il les « traite comme des princesses », n’est-ce pas? Pas tout à fait. Selon des chercheurs américains, un homme sexiste peut se comporter de manière tout à fait amicale avec les femmes, et même idéaliser ces dernières. Des chercheurs du département de psychologie de l’Université Northeastern ont fait discuter 27 hommes avec 27 femmes et les ont fait jouer à un jeu de questions-réponses.

Ils ont ensuite fait remplir des questionnaires aux hommes pour obtenir leur avis sur différentes propositions sexistes. En analysant leur comportement non verbal pendant l’exercice, les chercheurs ont constaté que plusieurs des hommes qui étaient d’accord avec les propositions sexistes avaient été tout à fait charmants avec les femmes avec qui ils avaient été jumelés. Les chercheurs expliquent ce phénomène en différenciant deux sortes de sexismes : le sexisme hostile et le sexisme bienveillant. Les femmes et les enfants d’abord. Benny - Little Game. Le sexisme ordinaire illustré en pictogrammes. Avec une série de dessins minimalistes, la designer Yang Liu basée à Berlin, se penche sur les stéréotypes entre les sexes. Son livre « Man meets Woman », qui sortira le 6 octobre prochain, elle utilise de simples pictogrammes pour illustrer ce sexisme ordinaire (vert pour les hommes, rose pour les femmes). « Is this a man’s world?

Bright, bold pictograms from Yang Liu revisit the roles, relationships and age-old clichés of male and female expérience. » Imagine a setting in which a man wearing a dress might be as habitual as a woman in trousers. Where a woman exposing herself in public wasn’t sexy, but as creepy as a male flasher. In this first in a new series for TASCHEN, leading graphic designer Yang Liu tackles one of the hottest, and one of the oldest, topics of all: he and she. Man meets Woman. Derrière la porte. Guys With Fancy Lady Hair. PUNCH | What Does It Mean to Drink Like a Woman? I am a woman who likes whiskey. I order Manhattans. I drink Old Fashioneds. And nearly every time I announce this request to a bartender, I get the knowing nod—the unvoiced approval and the respect that comes along with defying the expectations of what a woman usually drinks.

And usually this approving bartender is a male. By nature of its history, bartending is a male-dominated industry, one in which women tend to work a little harder to earn the same credibility bestowed upon our dark-spirit swilling counterparts. “It’s kind of a thrill when a woman orders whiskey,” says Toby Cecchini, a longtime bartender and the owner of New York’s Long Island Bar. But why? While there have long been behavioral codes, Emily Post was the first to formalize them in 1922 with her highly influential book Etiquette.

Before I earned a reputation as a whiskey drinker, there were numerous occasions when people—mostly men—would presume that I wanted something juicy or sweet. This Is What Happens When You Replace The Women In Ads With Men. Kevin Spacey Hilariously Answers Questions That Female Celebrities Get Asked On The Red Carpet. Majorité opprimée : quand les rôles masculins et féminins sont inversés. REPORTAGES - Sur Bienvenue Dans La Vraie Vie Des Femmes ★ Doing Gender with Wallets and Purses. I once heard a transgender woman give a talk about the process of socially transitioning to being recognized as a woman. She discussed various decisions she made in taking some final critical steps toward the social identity of woman. She talked at length about her hair. She asked, “What kind of woman am I and how is my haircut going to indicate that?”

She talked about being preoccupied with her hair for a long time as she attempted to figure out a cut and style that “felt right.” But what struck me the most was her discussion of carrying a purse. She said that getting used to carrying a purse everywhere was one of the more challenging elements of the transition. Purses and wallets are gendered spaces. I got the idea for this post after reading Christena Nippert-Eng’s book, Islands of Privacy — a sociological study of privacy in everyday life. Other items were still considered private, but “less private” than objects in cell 1 because they were shared selectively. Men and Women! They Talk Like People! Your Relationship Failed Because You're A Girl. Photo: Shutterstock Why is your dating life unsatisfactory? Probably because you’re a girl. In the course of one misogyny-packed Huffington Post column, blogger Amy Chan manages to shame women for being too feminine and not feminine enough, too selective and too slutty.

Impressive! In “The 11 Differences Between Dating A Girl And A Woman,” Chan gets off to a great start by first suggesting that only heterosexual people exist: “A boy is attracted to girls. A man is attracted to women.” But now that we’ve established that adult men are faultless, let’s move on to the pressing issue of how women are immature little whiny bitches who ruin their relationships. First of all, we’re sluts! But the slut-shaming doesn’t end there. Okay, but if you haven’t been sleeping with Too Many People, what went wrong? While you were out being utterly unreasonable by trying to find a man you were physically attracted to, you were neglecting your womanly duties of cooking and cleaning.

A look at an ad that’ll leave a bad taste in your mouth, as well as how our relationship with what we eat is spoiled by outdated recipes of gender.

I decided to try going Vegan on Sept 4th. It was a moment of either congratulation or crisis intervention for some friends. “Is everything ok??” Or “Whoa, why are you giving up meat?!?” My reasoning was to instill more mindfulness in my life, starting with the planning and preparation of what I eat. *Let’s pause for a second so I can say this: It is okay if you do or do not like to eat meat.

Katherine McGregor of University of Toronto Scarborough shared an article she read reflecting on gender assumptions in Western society (i.e. meat = how to have a strong body, strong body = masculinity). Of course, we have our Pakistani brothers who have a …soft spot for …um …eww. Anyway, this past weekend, my friend Kate was in town for a few days. The next day, my friend Emma Brooks tagged me as she tweeted a scrumptious snapshot of gender-policing:

Gender and the Body Language of Power. We’re celebrating the end of the year with our most popular posts from 2013, plus a few of our favorites tossed in. Enjoy! Philosopher Sandra Lee Bartky once observed that being feminine often means using one’s body to portray powerlessness. Consider: A feminine person keeps her body small and contained; she makes sure that it doesn’t take up to much space or impose itself. She walks and sits in tightly packaged ways. Likewise, burping and farting, raising one’s voice in an argument, and even laughing loudly are considered distinctly unfeminine. Stunningly, when you think about it, these features of feminine body comportment are, in fact, not uniquely feminine, but associated with deference more generally. In groups of men, those with higher status typically assume looser and more relaxed postures; the boss lounges comfortably behind the desk while the applicant sits tense and rigid on the edge of his seat.

Acting feminine, then, overlaps with performances of submissiveness.

Socialisation des enfants. Jouets et produits pour enfants. Dogs are Boys; Cats are Girls. By Lisa Wade, PhD, Nov 9, 2012, at 11:00 am I’ve posted more than once, and gleefully, about the weird American habit we have of associating dogs with men and cats with women. Well, Adrienne H. sent in a particularly humorous example: an advertising image from Pajamagram, featuring “hoodie-footies” for the entire family. They are color-coded — pink for girls, blue for boys — all the way down to the dog and cat. So, there you have it; I’m not crazy after all.

Rose. Cerveau. Quote of the Day: Scarlett Johansson Tired of Sexist Diet Questions. Cross-posted at Women and Hollywood. Wow, who knew I could love Scarlett Johansson so much?? I posted this on Bitch Flicks‘ Facebook page but thought it was too great not to post here too. At The Avengers press conference in London, a reporter proceeded to ask Robert Downey Jr. an in-depth, thought-provoking question about his character (Tony Stark/Iron Man) and then asked Johansson about her diet. I shit you not. Reporter: “I have a question to Robert and to Scarlett. “And to Scarlett, to get into shape for Black Widow did you have anything special to do in terms of the diet, like did you have to eat any specific food, or that sort of thing?”

Scarlett: “How come you get the really interesting existential question, and I get the like, “rabbit food” question? The reporter’s question particularly rubs me the wrong way because lots of women have such a contentious relationship with food. In response to the asinine question, Sarah at Pop Cultured astutely asserts: Stéréotypes sexistes dans les médias: au tour des électrices! | Les Chihuahuas de la démocratie. Mon souhait à moi, en regard de la couverture médiatique de cette campagne électorale qui s’achève, c’était que disparaissent une bonne fois pour toutes le fameux double standard et les stéréotypes qui infiltrent ou caractérisent le traitement des femmes politiques. En fait, consciente qu’on partait de très loin, j’espérais surtout qu’ils s’estompent ou deviennent un «phénomène» marginal, à tout le moins. Une analyse de contenu plus exhaustive et approfondie pourra être réalisée à cet effet après le 4 septembre pour examiner la couverture journalistique réservée aux femmes ayant pris part à cette course électorale et évaluer la présence (ou non) d’une différenciation en fonction des sexes.

La bonne nouvelle, c’est que les médias et le public auront été sensibilisés à ces enjeux au cours des semaines qui viennent de s’écouler, alors que plusieurs articles sur le sujet ont été publiés, lesquels ont eu une résonance substantielle. Project Implicit® Heightism Is A Social Construct Based In Gender Norms. By Guest Blogger Geoffrey Arnold, Oct 24, 2011, at 11:51 am Cross-posted at The Social Complex.

Take a look at these two images. The people in Image A and Image B are identical, save for their relative heights and the way that their heads are tilted in order to maintain eye contact. Now how do you think each of these images would be independently perceived by the average person? (see full sized image here) Do one of these men seem “assertive” while the other seems “submissive” or “pushy”? If you are being honest with yourself here, you probably are imagining many differences in the social interactions depicted in these two images that don’t actually exist outside of our cultural framework. These heightist concepts come into play along with our perceptions of gender. Perhaps (to some extent) the negative cultural perceptions that apply to “masculine women” also apply to “tall females” and the positive cultural perceptions that apply to “feminine females” also apply to “short females”?
