Warum die Thighbrows auf Instagram auf die Thigh Gap folgen - Style - bento
Bye, Thigh Gap. [Hi] Thighbrows. [ superficial world that Social Media created. ] Es handelt sich dabei um das Haut- und Fettröllchen, das an der Falte zwischen Bein und Po – also an der Hüfte – entsteht, wenn man kniet, sitzt oder sich nach vorne beugt. Moment. Hat das nicht jeder? [...] Doch, nur ist die individuell mal mehr, mal weniger ausgeprägte Thighbrow in den meisten Fällen mit Kleidung verdeckt. Neu ist, dass hochausgeschnittene und eng anliegende Badeanzüge seit 2015 wieder getragen werden, und man die vergessene Körperstelle deshalb bald häufiger sehen wird. [... "hip cleavage" ...] [...] Durch die fotografisch festgehaltene Wiederholung avancieren gewisse Posen (Russenhocke, Fish Gape, Duck Face) zum nonverbalen Code, der ein gewisses Trendbewusstsein suggeriert, ohne explizit darauf hinzuweisen. Fotos spiegeln die Normen der Gesellschaft wider, brechen sie, spielen mit ihnen.

Rooney Mara über die ungleiche Bezahlung in Hollywood - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Viele Schauspielerinnen verdienen weniger als ihre männlichen Co-Stars. Die Gage sei aber gar nicht das eigentliche Problem, findet Rooney Mara. Sondern die tiefe Verankerung sexistischer Motive. [...] Es solle ihrer Ansicht nach nicht darum gehen, dass Frauen weniger bezahlt bekommen, sondern um das Warum. "Das ist doch nur eine Begleiterscheinung einer viel größeren Sache." In der Filmindustrie ,aber auch darüber hinaus, werde eine bestimmte Sprache benutzt, um Frauen zu beschreiben - die man aber niemals für eine Mann benutzen würde. Das sei vor allem so, erklärt Mara, wenn es um meinungsstarke, selbstbeherrschte Frauen gehe.

Scans prove there's no such thing as a 'male' or 'female' brain | New Scientist
Despite persisting stereotypes, girls are no worse than boys at science and maths subjects, either. “People get wedded to the idea that being male or female is highly predictive of having different aptitudes or career choices,” “This study fights against the idea that these outcomes are based on biological differences, as opposed to cultural expectations.” Other body systems are also often wrongly considered to be either male or female, [...] “There are differences between men and women when you look in large groups, and these are important for diagnosis and treatment,” she says. “But there are always more differences within genders. We always need to look at culture, environment, education and a person’s role in society,” [...] “It’s a shame that people’s experience alone isn’t enough for us to recognise as a society that non-binary gender is legitimate.”

Trans activist Paris Lees walks out of BBC Newsnight recording - Gay Star News
I’m not prepared to enter into a fabricated debate about trans people’s right to exist/express themselves. ‘There is no “debate”. Some people are trans – I’d have been very happy to go on & talk about the simple issue of human rights for trans people.’ [...] The community was already concerned after anti-trans academic Sheila Jeffreys was asked to appear on BBC Radio 4 show Woman’s Hour on 7 August to discuss her new book. In the segment, she explained without challenge how trans people ‘hurt people and society’. //&! on.fb.me/1N0IVex - Germaine Greer //&! bit.ly/1MnwKb6 - nobody needs a gender theory degree title to decide to wear make-up and dresses. //&!

For These Millennials, Gender Norms Have Gone Out Of Style : NPR
More than two-thirds of people ages 14 to 34 agree that gender does not have to define a person in the way that it used to[.] And 6 in 10 say that men & women do not need to conform to traditional gender roles or behaviors anymore. [...] defying gender expectations. "This generation views gender as a mark of self-expression — they view it as a way of displaying their full sense of self," she says. For example, Rae Tutera, who will appear in an upcoming documentary produced by Lena Dunham about gender nonconformity in fashion, says that the first time she felt like herself was in a men's suit. Tutera, 29, says she is "on the masculine side of the gender spectrum." [...] "Sometimes you have to act braver than you feel," she says, remembering what it felt like to enter a fancy men's suit store in Manhattan. [ ... but ...] most [vast majority of] millennials don't push gender boundaries. [...] [M]illennials are considering the ways in which gender might be flexible. [+See Comments!]

Sex-Aufklärung: Forscherin Tuider über Streit um sexuelle Vielfalt - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Elisabeth Tuider [...] Fachgebiet Soziologie der Diversität leitet. Ihre Schwerpunkte sind Genderforschung, Sexualpädagogik und Prävention von sexueller Gewalt. [...] Tuider: Mit Verstören meinen wir, dass zum Beispiel beim Thema Homosexualität gängige Vorurteile infrage gestellt werden, um den Jugendlichen zu zeigen: Du kannst in der Vielfalt, die ohnehin längst Realität ist, selbstbestimmt entscheiden, wie du leben und lieben möchtest. SPIEGEL ONLINE: Genau das geht vielen zu weit. In Baden-Württemberg tobt seit Monaten ein Schulstreit, Kritiker wehren sich gegen "sexuelle Vielfalt" als Lernziel. Eltern haben Angst, die Kontrolle zu verlieren - und zwar nicht nur die streng katholischen. [...] >> Sie denken, sie seien umzingelt von neuen Lebensentwürfen, die ihnen ihre Macht streitig machen. << [...] Die Prävention von Gewalt ist Bestandteil von Sexualpädagogik. &! >> ARD Kontraste beitrag vom 06.02.2014 - bit.ly/1AdE0WB &! bit.ly/1AdGl3W

BBC Radio 4 - A History of Ideas, Historian Simon Schaffer on Beauty and Evolution, Feminine Beauty: A social construct?
Feminine Beauty: A social construct? // The French existentialist writer Simone de Beauvoir famously declares in her book The Second Sex that a woman isn’t born a woman, rather she becomes one. She means by this that there is no way women have to be, no given femininity, no ideal to which all women should conform. Simone de Beauvoir suggests that resistance to male stereotypes of beauty can mean greater equality. Voiced by Harry Shearer. Scripted by Nigel Warburton. &!&!&!& via http://www.reddit.com/r/FemmeThoughts/comments/2lqcw6/feminine_beauty_as_a_social_construct/ "it is feminism's goal to break away from that oppression and its labels. This deconstruction also represents a point of departure from the failings of humanism. [...] feminist theory is broadly applicable to any marginalized or oppressed group"

Lena Dunham and Aziz Ansari’s Big Book Deals – Flavorwire
But out of the two, which deal was the source of 1,000 thinkpieces and vague concern trolling about whether-or-not a big deal like this was “right?” You guessed it, Dunham’s. Was there a similar level of outrage for Ansari’s book deal? No — and perhaps speaking to his smaller footprint, culturally, it basically was reduced to a side note. The difference here speaks to a couple of things. Is gender playing a big role? Certainly! Also the difference in Dunham selling a book of essays “about her life” versus Ansari’s take on “modern love” where he was inspired “after reading Malcolm Gladwell.” Ansari’s book will be about his life, to be sure, but it’s not sold to the public as memoir in the same way. It is also probably the result of “Lena Dunham” being a loaded gun in the media representing a lot of ideas regarding young women and power, whereas Ansari, on the other hand, doesn’t represent every young man ever — or every young man of Indian-American heritage, either.
