What The Patricia Arquette Oscar Backlash Really Means

The cheers for Patricia Arquette’s declaration for women’s wage equality during her Oscars speech this week turned into an Internet pile-on denouncing her as a racist homophobe in a mere blink; perhaps never before have the unrealistic expectations heaped upon feminism been more publicly on display. Many of the same people who were likely fist-pumping in their living rooms along with Meryl Streep after Arquette proclaimed "It’s our time to have wage equality once and for all, and equal rights for women in the United States of America," felt immediately and spectacularly let down when she left the stage and said to the press, "It’s time for all the women in America–-and all the men that love women and all the gay people and all the people of color that we’ve all fought for–-to fight for us now.

" Manueldesavoirvivretpg1. Chroniques du bord de l’amer… Upworthy. An object: The naked female body. When you search for the word “naked” on Google’s Image Search, without specifying a gender, the vast majority of the results will be images of naked women.

An object: The naked female body

Some of the results might include images of naked men, but most of the time they are either cropped or blurred. The idea is old and simple: the female body has long been sexually objectified to an extent that the word “naked” has become a synonym for “fantasizing over a woman’s body.” In consequence, this highlights a different type of problem, and that is the suppression of a woman’s desire (heterosexual women in this case), which is left unsatisfied due to gender stereotypes and prejudices linked to sexual behaviors and gender norms. The result of a simple Google search demonstrates the major social problems pertaining to gender and sexual identities that we do not often notice. Le sexisme et le cinéma, l’éternel combat.

Projet Crocodiles. Un pavé dans la mare 8 : viol et violences conjugales => Pour les COMM. The Dispute Between Radical Feminism and Transgenderism. On May 24th, a few dozen people gathered in a conference room at the Central Library, a century-old Georgian Revival building in downtown Portland, Oregon, for an event called Radfems Respond. The conference had been convened by a group that wanted to defend two positions that have made radical feminism anathema to much of the left. First, the organizers hoped to refute charges that the desire to ban prostitution implies hostility toward prostitutes. Then they were going to try to explain why, at a time when transgender rights are ascendant, radical feminists insist on regarding transgender women as men, who should not be allowed to use women’s facilities, such as public rest rooms, or to participate in events organized exclusively for women.

The dispute began more than forty years ago, at the height of the second-wave feminist movement. How to Be Lonely in America  Knight and Day. Will 'Cisgender' Survive? The linguistic complement to "transgender" has achieved some popularity, but faces social and political obstacles to dictionary coronation. The new Amazon Original Series, Transparent, about a middle-aged father who's transitioning into a woman, is just the latest cultural sign that the word "transgender" has gone mainstream. No doubt there have been transgender people—that is, those with a gender identity or gender expression that doesn't conform to their assigned birth sex—since there have been people at all, but the term itself wasn't coined until the 1970s.

Popular confusion about its usage notwithstanding (for example, questions about the difference between "transgender" and "transsexual"), "transgender" is here, it's queer, and a lot of people have gotten used to it. The situation is more complicated for "cisgender," coined in the 1990s to mean the opposite of "transgender. " Jeez Louise This Whole Cisgender Thing – en. Since Alex Blaze took it on, & since we’ve been discussing this whole “is it okay to call someone who isn’t trans cisgender?” Question on the boards, I may as well put it down here. First, I’m going to claim a difference between cisgender & cissexual.

Cisgender, the problem seems to me, is not the easy opposite of transgender. Use of ‘cisgender’ perpetuates problematic dichotomy. Some may have heard the word cisgender recently. Its entrance into popular usage is a solution to a problem between the mainstream population and the transgender community. Its meaning comes from the Latin root “cis-” meaning “on the near side,” as opposed to “trans-” which means “across.” “Herself” – Does anyone really listen to what a naked woman says? Herself, a new “feminist” photo project currently making the rounds online, features lots of naked women. Created by a TV actress, Herself purports to “highlight’s women’s sexuality on their own terms” and “help demystify the female form, to assist in the erasure of coveting it, and to help celebrate the ever changing face of it.”

The Post-Pregnancy Stories Nobody Talks About  During my first pregnancy I loved everything about my tummy.

It has always been my "trouble" area so at 6 weeks I took great pleasure to attributing my tummy lady lumps to the growing baby inside me.

Party Girl Pop: Empowerment or Sexism? 3 Reasons Why Sex-Positivity without Critical Analysis Is Harmful. Source: EF Editor’s Note: This piece is a critique of the mainstream sex-positivity movement and not of critically analytical sex-positive feminists. If your sex-positivity includes critical analysis, then right on! But if it doesn’t, then this article is for your consideration. I’m a feminist, and I’m also a sex educator. Why We Need To Stop Conflating Sexual Objectification with Sexual Empowerment. Recently, I made a video – called, appropriately, “Party Girl Pop: Empowerment or Sexism?” – wherein I question Ke$ha and Katy Perry lyrics, the messages that they present to mainstream culture, and whether or not one can be sexually empowered if the sexual expression being presented is commodified. That is, if the sexuality being sold by the media is one that subjugates women and pushes willing objectification off as sexual ownership, then when we buy into and mirror it, are we really experiencing liberation?

How I Became a Rape Victim. Féminismes jargonnants, militantisme désincarné, aveuglement, femmes oubliées : A contrario. Dans les milieux féministes un peu « avertis », l’utilisation d’un langage jargonnesque est courant. Comme dans presque tous les milieux professionnels, militants et/ou associatifs. Est-ce bien ou mal, je n’en ai aucune idée, c’est simplement un état de fait.

Moi je ne vois pas où est le souci, en interne : à partir du moment où tout le monde se comprend… En ce qui concerne les féminismes, beaucoup de mots couramment utilisés par les militantes sont d’origine anglo-saxonne. À titre personnel, je ne vois toujours pas où est le problème. D’autre part, il y a des temps et des lieux pour tout : il y a les moments où il est essentiel, utile et constructif de débattre entre militantes et théoriciennes, pour échanger des idées, réfléchir globalement aux choses, étudier et mettre en place des plans d’action, des stratégies, etc. Donc le jargon et les mots compliqués.
