Misogyny in Hollywood

Posted by Jack Stephens on March 31, 2007

The Apostate writes:

It was silly and very disrespectful to women because it put the burden of sex solely on women, as if sex is all about us and our bodies, not about men’s nakedness. That’s exactly the reason I refuse to have artistic nudes of women in my home – not until there is also an accompanying artistic nude of a man. That’s also why women’s nudity in Hollywood films offends me: It is not only often gratuitous, but so one-sided. I want to see butts and penises of men, thanks – I like women’s bodies, but it’s always misogynistic to strip lop-sidedly.

Corporate Sex

Posted by Jack Stephens on March 31, 2007

Queer Dewd writes about sex in the corporate work place:

What is it with corporate America? I’ve realized that it’s no wonder a lot of people think I’m a freak. Most people spend their lives in a corporate America where it’s de riguer to act as if humans don’t actually have sex or know what it is. Which is a laff a minute given what drives corporate America otherwise: sex. Selling sex, sex, and more sex. I mean christ, among other things, we’re selling cars, boats, yachts, aircraft and lord knows what else. All of those things are sold, each and everyday, on the basis of advertisements and a cultural tapestry of various symbolism which associate cars, boats, yachts, and aircraft with sex, sex, sex.
