A friend from Miami sent me these three bits and I thought y’all might get a kick out of them as well. First up The Love Your Vagina Song:
Secondly, this nauseating ad – it negates women and ushers men into the hell of dieting and body image issues, yea!:
And finally of great interest is this NPR article that claims gender may be a thing of the past! Of course noting the pink-nailed J Crew ad and the couple who has chosen to not gender their child – but also “Andrej Pejic, an androgynous Australian model, worked both the male and female runways at the Paris fashion shows earlier this year:”All very cool stuff to see. Thank you Mr. Fitzgerald!!
Check out this post Healthiness is Manly. Really interesting exploration of how advertising genders everything – and then in turn we gender ourselves – even if what we’re doing is unhealthy.
Female Impersonator posted a heads up that Men’s Health Magazine has created a Men’s Health Feminist Blog! The very first posting uses the old feminism is the F-word concept – and I am proud to say that the intention seems genuine! [Despite a ridiculous shot of a girl in a bikini today, which supported a genuine conversation about why cutting your pubic hair into the shape of your partner initials objectifies women] You should totally check this out -
Oh and by the way did you know that juicy bit of info – you can go to a salon and get your pubies clipped to reflect your lover’s initials? I didn’t and in some ways I wish I was still ignorant of this beauty ritual -
What do you think gang? Are you running out to the nearest salon so you can sport a T.R., T.J., J.G., A.P., P.M, V.L., D.L., or any other random combo of letters in you netherlands?
