the thing to realize here is that conservatives find the idea of paying workers a livable wage so absurd that they make hyperbolic comparisons like this
because fifteen dollars and hour and a hundred thousand dollars an hour both mean the same thing to them; more than you deserve
^That commentary is very important.
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).

"I can’t believe I lost to a girl"
"you let a girl beat you"
If you keep showing these types of mindsets to kids they’re going to think they should think that way as well.
also “dont be a girl”

crypsis is the ability of an organism to blend in with its environment, as seen here in (click pic) grasshoppers, mantids, geckos (three in the fifth photo), toads (three in the ninth photo), snakes and katydids, all of which have evolved to mimic or become inconspicuous amongst leaves. photos by (click pic) john cancalosi, christian zeigler, mattias klum and thomas marent.

newsflash: people who are bi, gay, trans, of color, women, etc etc don’t want you to ignore the fact they are bi, gay, trans, of color, women, etc
like if you have to ignore the fact someone is different than you to stand being around them or treat them remotely decently then of course you’re a bigot - you shouldn’t have to ignore the fact a gay person is gay or a trans person is trans, etc etc to think of them as human
