Not an idea, but worth spreading.

Aeronwen, i loved the video on the Marketing Industry. My thoughts exactly. Except women aren't the only victim of Gender stereotyping. I did know a video once shown at a school assembly only it's name escapes me that targets it at a neutral standpoint. Gender stereotyping is one big cage. Supressing our inner-selves CONSTANTLY.
I am often asked to think long and hard, those that dare ask this, are still waiting for a conclusion.

NOTE: discussion of this topic was moved here

An interesting respinse to the recent claim by a Ubisoft developer that adding female playable characters to the co-op mode for Assassin's Creed Unity would have required significant extra work.

So some people have said they don't understand what objecification is.  Noone can tell about it better than Laci, watch and become a giant cyclone of change :)

warning Laci's videos are frequently nsfw (this one is fine)

I can't stand a minute of her voice, unfortunately. And who is she calling 'babes'?

Even if you've seen it a 1000 times, watch it again.
Reading the news lately makes me sick, and makes me realise that nothing really changed.

This is a picture that I think most of you already have seen, but it's so good I just have to post it.

I heard word
Of bellied sailcloth,
Creak of oars,
And gold in Eastland.
Then I smelled
A smell remembered:
Salt of spray
And black-pitched boat's keel.

He doesn't just refuse to salute, he breathes defiance. Too bad he didn't get to see the fall of the Nazi regime.
But I do agree that not wavering under pressure and sticking to one's moral code is one of the essential qualities of a human being.

well who can say woman are not use as as sex object for advertisement or to sell a product. It is sad but true, that is really insulting sometimes when you're watching tv, that a bimbo came from nowhere to present a product, and you have no idea what the product is !
We've talked about that on school and the teacher says it is for people when they see the product, remember of the advertisement and then buy the product because there was a hot girl in !

I mean this is silly and stupid, an ice isn't good because I saw a girl in a provacative way, it is good because it's have a good taste for instance ! But yeah it reflects how society see womans indeed. I think people who are making advertisement think we're all apes and we find a thing good because there was a "beautifull" woman in the advertisment.
