See, I hate pictures like this. Why is it seen as though a man is doing a favor if he’s doing the dishes? Why is it said that he’s nice enough to do the dishes? Why is it just expected that the women will do the dishes, but the men are doing the women a favor if they do the dishes?
No, you do not deserve a goddamn blowjob just for doing the dishes. If you live in the house and you eat in the house, you have the responsibility to do the dishes just like every other member of the house does.
Having grown up in a patriarchal household, I’m having nothing of this. I am sick of seeing my father sit on the couch, eat his dinner, and then leave the dishes there for my mother to pick up and wash. It is not the woman’s job to do the dishes for you.
It hurts to see fellow women circulating pictures like this. Stop trying to encourage the patriarchal roles. Stop trying to convince them that they have done you a huge favor if they did one household chore and that you should then give them a blowjob for it.
Does he lick your pussy every time you do the dishes? No? How come?
If he doesn’t, then why the hell should you?
^ reblogging for this comment and this comment alone. Fuck that sexist drawing
I am 100% for the comments. Fuck that bj. You do the goddamn dishes.
If I may interject here, being a guy and all, I would just like to say, that I believe this post was meant to be funny, not serious. It’s a play on a STEREOTYPE, which in some cases turns out to be true. It’s sad to know that it is true but it is. Now am I saying I deserve a bj or any sexual favor for doing the fucking dishes? No, what I deserve is the love of my partner and that is what i have. However; I can look at this post and laugh at it because I know it was meant to be funny. If we can’t laugh at stereotypes about ourselves, then I don’t think we should really laugh at anything. That being said, I am laughing at the stereotype of the situation, not the actual situation. People getting upset at this post probably are, A, not in a good relationship and this happens, B, have been in a similar relationship, or C, don’t want to be in said relationship. It’s okay if any of these have applied to you, and if any have, then fix it! It is only when we are happy that we can finally look at ourselves and laugh. That being said, I also laugh at jokes about my race, and don’t get pissy about it, because the said sterotype is funny to think about it…That is all, you may return to your tumblrs =3
Nine. I am shocked. No, not shocked, but deeply offended. All I can think staring at your comment is; “How dare you?”. I honestly do like you, Nine, I really do, but this…I…I am disgusted.
Now, while reading this, just remember, I don’t hate you, I just want you to understand.
Okay? Here I go.
Women, for centuries, have been seen merely as sex objects. They’re seen as quiet, stupid, loyal and obeying objects. Us, women, are seen as dogs. Mere animals. And in this card, right here, shows it as exactly that.
You think it’s just a stereotypical little “haha” joke, don’t you? You think no one takes this seriously? Well, let me give you a little info; Here in South Africa, back in the 60s, cards like this were handed out to women all over-and not for a laugh. Husbands used these cards to convince their wives that speaking up was wrong and that men were better. It was used as a disciplinary tool. It’s one of the many small things that degrade women and keep people shut. These little “haha stereotype jokes” made people think less of themselves. This type of card was (and is still) sexist and make women (and men) think that’s okay. Oh, and btw, since when is stereotypes okay? Since when was prejudice okay? Since when was judging people on a myth ever okay? Strike one, buddy.
I notice you say “being a guy and all”. What do you mean by that, exactly? Are you saying that because of your gender, you wouldn’t understand this? Are you saying that because you’re a man, you won’t understand the struggle women have gone through for centuries to be seen as human beings? Then why do say anything about this at all? Do you think, because you’re a man, that you know better? Now, don’t get me wrong; have your opinions. You can say what you want. You can be what you want. But the moment you start preaching about something that you barely understand or have ever experienced and try to change someone’s values, then fuck off.I don’t tolerate that type of shit.Strike two.
You might see this as a joke, but us, women, find it offensive. We feel degraded and violated. We feel like society will never accept us and we have to lower our standards. We feel we’re never good enough- oh, but wait, you expect us to “just laugh”, don’t you? You just expect me to shake it off and carry on with life just because it’s not a big deal even though over 31,300 people feel less about themselves? You just expect me to laugh about myself because the rest of society is?
And how to you know this was meant to be funny? Did you draw this? Do you know who drew it? Either way, why must I not speak up because not only does it speak badly about women, but put men in a bad place too.
And how dare you say that women who stand up for human rights are single, desperate and grumpy old grandmas who need men to be happy?
Strike three, you’re out.
Nine, your comment offends me. Why?
Because I’m a feminist.I stand up for women. I stand up for men. I stand up for transgenders. I stand up for genderqueers. And I stand up for every other person in between.
Or to you, I’m the oh-so unhappy desperate girl that need men to make me complete.
I’m the girl that all of the sudden, because I stand up for myself, is automatically wrong just because I don’t have a man in my life.
And, because of that, I have a low-self esteem that needs to shut up because everything I say will be marked as “emotional issues.”
And why do you think that way, Nine, just because I have respect for myself? Just because I want a fair society? Just because I want equality?
Just because I want to get along with you, I’m an unhappy old grinch?
Is that honestly how you feel about feminism?
Nine, if you can’t respect me, as a feminist,
Then I’ll never ever be able to respect you.
