The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…
"racism is a problem, white people are not"
who is killing black people and getting away with it
"transphobia is a problem, cis people are not"
who is murdering transwomen and kicking trans kids out of their homes
"sexism is a problem, men are not"
who is raping women and having everyone turn on them for speaking out about it
when ppl say things like quoted above. theyre reassigning blame, to who? no one in particular really. but their point is that the people who are being blamed for the problem arent the actual problem. the people causing the problem is…. society. they usually say its society thats the problem.
what person in society? what group? everyone apparently. society as a whole is responsible according to that ideology
everyone is equally responsible for oppression, even the oppressed.
does that make sense? no. of course not. but it takes the heat off the oppressors and lets them sleep at night
