Men’s Health: At Women’s Expense
Men’s Health has a “40 Unwritten Rules to Live By” list, and while it’s not at all new, I recently stumbled upon it and felt the need to highlight how (unsurprisingly) terrible it is.
The very first bit of advice:
Never ask a woman if she wants to have sex by asking her if she wants to have sex.
Actually outright asking a women if she wants to have sex? How preposterous! Downright absurd! We DO live in a rape culture after all!
And then we have the lovely #13:
Telling a woman, “You’re a great person,” is taken as the lead-in to a confession that you don’t love her.
Are these people serious? No wonder they need help getting laid if this is the kind of attitude they foster.
Of course as expected the rest of the list has a healthy dose of further gender stereotyping, transphobia, heteronormativity, and general jackassery. SHOCKING!
