  1. This is an excellent post to keep in mind when you see another recent post criticizing the current trend of dystopian sci-fi and going on about how sci-fi used to be about hope and wonder.

    No. It used to be about men. And now it’s not.

    Specifically white men. And I say this because a lot of the feminist sci fi centers white women & replicates the racism of classic sci fi. Not to mention the weird fetishization of POC on display in other spec fic like urban fantasy.

  2. I'm pretty sure the people who create advertisements are robots, because I'd rather not think about the type of person you'd have to be to decide that any of these were good ideas.

    Don't go thinking sexist advertising only affects women: At 1:37, you'll find out how it's changed the way men see themselves, and at 2:49, there's an eye-opening experiment that you don't want to miss.

  3. You don’t see male heroes wearing these costumes or posing like this. Outside of statistical outliers like Namor, their costumes tend to have full coverage, and when they pose, it’s to inspire fear, not boners.
