Looks like today is going to be day of ranting. I am seriously thinking it is time to unplug, as everywhere I look I keep getting assaulted by images that people seem to find humorous, that are in fact sexist and hurtful to women.
I found these two little beauties at a website that promotes leashing women to ensure that they remain under male control. The gold wedding ring is not a status symbol enough, no women must be put on a leash to make sure that we obey our male masters/husbands/boyfriends..or roving psycho. Notice that both women are smiling happily despite being led on a leash like a dog.
What you may wonder, has earned these women these wonderful collars? ...SEX. We claim to live in sexually liberated times, yet in actuality this is not the case. A woman's sexuality is ultimately still under the control of males. Despite the fact that it is our bodies, we should never be able to decide for ourselves how, and who we will engage with. A man deserves to know that his "property" is intact at all times. Isn't that the crux of the issue for all misogynists...women are objects, and not people therefore it is justifiable to demean us in any, and all matters. Sex is something men do to women, and not something that should ever be considered a shared experience. Well guess what, my vagina is not just a cum repository. It is the giver of life, and MY pleasure.
Somehow I cannot find amusement in this site. The thought of being put on a leash to make sure I "stay sweet" fails to tickle my funny bone. Why would that be? Perhaps because somewhere along the line I decided that my body belonged to me. Maybe it was the day I had the ridiculous thought that it should be my decision on whether or not to have sex. Perhaps, it was when it occurred to me that I am more than my body parts, and did the ever so radical thing of acknowledging myself as a sentient being.
Okay enough beating around the point. This SHIT just is not funny, unless you are a useless, pitiful piece of crap not worthy of giving a handout to. It is more than annoying in the Jehovah's Witness at your front door sense, it is infuriating in that I wish I could whoop your ignorant woman hating ass kind of sense. It brings out the violent streak in me, and yes I know that good girls are supposed to hold our tongues, and not acknowledge our baser emotions. When I see crap like this I must admit it gives validation to political lesbians. My body is not for sale, it cannot be controlled, nor am I interested in boosting your fragile male ego. A possession is is inanimate object, and not a living breathing human being, or did you miss the 13th amendment in civics class? Here is an idea, how about we put a muzzle on all men until they can learn to behave like human beings? How about we put them in cages until they learn that it is not okay to rape women. How is that for a lesson in control?
