I got my sexual aggressor fired from work today. I'm quite satisfied. : TwoXChromosomes
I walked by him and turned my butt right next to his hand and just full on farted. Loud and angry. It's gross, I know. But if he's going to make me feel gross and "claim my ass" I'm going to make him feel gross and "claim his hand."

He proceeded to freak out and then I freaked out. No more will he look at my ass as sexual, but a fart box that has forever claimed his tiny hand.

Does gender matter? | Nature
Like many women and minorities, however, I am suspicious when those who are at an advantage proclaim that a disadvantaged group of people is innately less able. Historically, claims that disadvantaged groups are innately inferior have been based on junk science and intolerance6. Despite powerful social factors that discourage women from studying maths and science from a very young age7, there is little evidence that gender differences in maths abilities exist, are innate or are even relevant to the lack of advancement of women in science8. A study of nearly 20,000 maths scores of children aged 4 to 18, for instance, found little difference between the genders (Fig. 1)9, and, despite all the social forces that hold women back from an early age, one-third of the winners of the elite Putnam Math Competition last year were women. Moreover, differences in maths-test results are not correlated with the gender divide between those who choose to leave science10.

“In a parallel universe” is a series of fictional images, recreated from real ads in the mad men era, that question modern day sexism: showing it through a humorous light to spark a conversation through role play.

#MeToo isn’t enough. Now women need to get ugly | Barbara Kingsolver | Opinion | The Guardian
I pretended to be the boy in class who was making her sick with dread. She had to look right at me and repeat the words until they felt possible, if not easy: “Don’t say that to me. Don’t do that to me. I hate it.”

Where Do Harvey Weinsteins Come From? | Village Voice
Long read. From Weinstein on down to catcalling, it's the whole culture of women marrying their rapists in movies and "no means yes"

For some men, rape just isn’t a big deal | Emma Brockes | The Guardian
“Well, being raped isn’t as bad as, say, working in a factory in China.” Apart from the ludicrousness of the comparison – of trying to figure out what rape is and isn’t as bad as – it was suddenly clear to me that to him, and I assume to many men, rape exists purely in the hypothetical realm. “If you had to work in a factory for six months or be raped, which would you choose?” I asked. He looked taken aback; rape wasn’t something he had considered in relation to himself.

I didn't understand how widespread rape was. | David Graeber | Opinion | The Guardian
the loss of generations of women's potential to white male dominance... a man writing about his mother and DSK: it can't have happened unless everyone knew - oh shit: everyone knew

It’s of course this very disbelief that allows such things to happen. We are loth to accept people we might know might practice pure, naked aggression. This is how bullies get away with what they do. Bullying is not just a relation between bully and victim. It’s really a three-way relation, between bully, victim and everyone who refuses to do anything about the aggression

on his mother: As a result, her sense of self collapsed.
All of us are heirs to a thousand forms of violence.

When I was nineteen years old, Elie Wiesel grabbed my ass.
Which is it: big enough to destroy or so small that it is harmless? Women are driven crazy and driven to silence trying to answer this question.

Perhaps bad people do bad things. Conversely, one might hope, good people don’t do bad things.

You are sad beyond measure because, you believe, there are no good people. You mourn for humanity and for yourself.
