An article discussing sexist movies. This one speaks of Interstellar. "If Anne Hathaway's character is that high up in NASA, it's probably that she's good at her job, right? And, when people are good at their job, they don't usually throw it all away — and by "all" I mean "the fate of the entire world" — just because they have a crush on a coworker, right? Unless they're a a woman in a Christopher Nolan movie, apparently."

Man weighs on rape cultre on a post talking about how women get blamed for their rapes. "Rapists gonna rape...that'll never change. There is no justifying it, so I'm not sure what the point of this post is. However, there is something that should be brought to higher awareness...and that is the punishment of women who falsely accuse men of raping them. Women who did it for petty revenge or got busted cheating on their mate, so they claimed rape to save face. I have met men who were falsely accused. It ruined their life. Even after exoneration, you lose all credibility in society, can never own a firearm again, and end up staying on the sex offender list long after it's over. If it were up to me, I'd pass a law that made women serve the same sentence as the accused rapist would have if found innocent...but, I'm sure I'm just being a chauvinist."

I had to confront my body image issues head-on with this one. Despite considering myself a body positive proponent, it was truly difficult to not equate my self-worth with this photo that was making me feel inadequate. "
A woman talks about posting ugly photos of herself on Instagram as an experiment: "I decided to start the #uglyphotochallenge on my birthday, of all days. And I found that posting an "ugly" photo of myself with a scowl on my face and no makeup on actually made me feel like shit. It didn't really matter to me what people might say, or whether they commented at all. It just made me feel like I was putting a less than desirable version of myself out there — one I didn't gravitate toward naturally."
