When I say “boys are dumb” what I really mean is “boys have been raised in a patriarchal society that forces them into an incorrect and problematic view of masculinity that not only forces them to strip away valuable virtues from themselves, like patience and gentleness, but also forces them them to view and treat women in unhealthy ways that devalues women as people and makes them into objects purely for a man’s benefit”
but it’s a lot faster to say “boys are dumb”
I often have trouble the first time I watch an action movie because I can’t tell the white buff scruffy men apart for the first hour of the film and then I realized my problems would be solved by more diversity in films so why are we still here
If there’s one thing I hate more than anything, it’s when people tell us to stop critiquing problematic aspects of kids’ media because it’s “just kid’s stuff omg!!11”
where do you THINK WE LEARN BIGOTRY FROM
If you honestly think the racist, sexist, etc. bullshit from our media growing up didn’t teach us to be racist/sexist/etc., then boy do I have news for you!
