If the misogynist in your life is trying to claim women can’t serve in combat because they can’t carry a dude, kindly point them in the direction of this article about how people in the military learn the fireman’s carry.
when i was in basic training we had to learn how to do carries
a girl MUCH MUCH MUCH smaller than me was able to pick me up in a fireman’s carry
…i had to give her a piggy back ride cause i couldn’t lift her
so if you really think this shit is about size and strength between genders, kindly fuck off
If a young woman in middle school or high school hangs up a poster of Barack Obama in her room, this is seen as acceptable. It’s fine for women to admire men and want to be like them.
If a young man (the same age) hangs up a poster of Hillary Clinton in his room, this is seen as odd (maybe even troubling, is he gay? Oh no!).
Society tells us young men can’t think of women as role models, unless they’re a family member, whereas young women can admire and seek to emulate anyone, regardless of gender.
If you’re a young man, and if you have a poster on your wall with a woman, she had better be half-naked in a bikini, even if the Ronald Reagan or Gen. Patton poster next to it obviously features the man fully-clothed.
Young men are not to taught to think of women as role models. They are taught to think of them as either family members or sexual objects. There is no other category presented.
THIS IS SO TRUE!

MYTH: More girls aren’t gamers because they’re just not into gaming.
FACT: More girls aren’t gamers because they often feel unwelcome by the gaming community.
Thanks, NPR, for reminding folks that lack of female participation in the video game community isn’t due to brain differences or some shit, but is greatly attributed to—ummm, hello—Sexual harassment!… Miranda Pakozdi, a regular competitive gamer, entered the Cross Assault video game tournament. During the six-day fighting competition, her team’s coach badgered her with questions about her boyfriend and her bra size, and trained the tournament’s Web camera on parts of her body. “Eventually,” says O’Leary, “she found this so difficult to deal with that she committed kind of virtual suicide and forfeited the tournament by walking straight into a competing player so she’d be killed off.”
