Distinguished sociologist Erving Goffman noted that women in photographs are often portrayed in compromising or submissive situations such as having the head turned upwards to expose the neck or in a contorted stances often with light self-touching. Such poses invite the gaze of the viewer and make the subject of the photograph seem vulnerable and exposed to sexualization.

What’s the worst thing you can call a woman? Don’t hold back, now. You’re probably thinking of words like slut, whore, bitch, cunt (I told you not to hold back!), skank. Okay, now, what are the worst things you can call a guy? Fag, girl, bitch, pussy. I’ve even heard the term ‘mangina.’ Notice anything? The worst thing you can call a girl is a girl. The worst thing you can call a guy is a girl. Being a woman is the ultimate insult. Now tell me that’s not royally fucked up.

Sexual Assault Prevention Tips

1. Don't put drugs in people's drinks in order to control their behavior.

2. When you see someone walking by themselves, leave them alone.

3. If you pull over to help someone with car problems, remember not to assault them.

4. Never open an unlocked window or door uninvited.

5. If you are in an elevator and someone else gets in, don't assault them.

6. Use the buddy system. If you are not able to stop yourself from assaulting people, ask a friend to stay with you while you are in public.

7. Always be honest with people. Don't pretend to be a caring friend in order to gain the trust of someone you intend to assault. Consider telling them you plan to assault them. If you don't communicate your intentions, the other person may take that as a sign that you don't intend to rape them.

8. Don't forget: You can't have sex with a person unless they are awake.

9. Carry a whistle. If you're worried you might assault someone accidentally, you can hand it to the person you're with so they can blow it if you do.

10. Don't assault people.

Mały poradnik, jak uniknąć gwałtów

1. Nie wrzucaj ludziom narkotyków do napojów, żeby kontrolować ich zachowanie.
2. Kiedy widzisz kogoś idącego samotnie, zostaw go w spokoju.
3. Kiedy zatrzymujesz się, żeby pomóc komuś z samochodem, nie gwałć go.
4. NIGDY nie otwieraj niezakluczonych drzwi ani okien niezaproszony.
5. Jeśli jesteś w windzie i ktoś wsiada, NIE GWAŁĆ GO.
6. Skorzystaj z pomocy przyjaciół. Jeśli nie potrafisz się powstrzymać przed gwałceniem ludzi, poproś przyjaciela, żeby stale był z tobą.
7. Bądź szczery. Nie udawaj troskliwego przyjaciela po to, żeby zdobyć zaufanie kogoś, kogo chcesz zgwałcić. Powiedz mu, że planujesz go zgwałcić. Jeśli nie powiesz wprost o swoich intencjach, druga osoba może odebrać to jako sygnał, że nie chcesz jej zgwałcić.
8. Nie zapomnij: nie możesz uprawiać seksu z osobą nieprzytomną!
9. Noś ze sobą gwizdek. Jeśli boisz się, że możesz kogoś przez pomyłkę zgwałcić, wręcz mu gwizdek, żeby mógł zagwizdać, jeśli to zrobisz.
10. Nie gwałć.

Here are the embarrassing Hollywood statistics, all from The Celluloid Ceiling, a yearly study by Martha Lauzen of San Diego State University:
Of 2002’s top-grossing 100 films:
4% had female directors
8% had female writers
1% had female cinematographers
12% had female editors

And here are a few more stats:
Hollywood guilds are 80 to 90 % white.
No people of color employed by movie studios have the power to greenlight movies.
4 of the 44 partners or board members at the town’s top 5 talent agencies are women. None of the 44 are people of color.

One night President Obama and his wife Michelle decided to do something out of routine and go for a casual dinner at a restaurant that wasn’t too luxurious. When they were seated, the owner of the restaurant asked the President’s Secret Service if he could please speak to the First Lady in private. They obliged and Michelle had a conversation with the owner. Following this conversation President Obama asked Michelle, “Why was he so interested in talking to you?” She mentioned that in her teenage years, he had been madly in love with her. President Obama then said, “So if you had married him, you would now be the owner of this lovely restaurant,” to which Michelle responded, “No. If I had married him, he would now be the President.”
