What’s Current: New study confirms that men are, indeed, creepy

creepy men

New study confirms that men are creepy. Findings also suggest that “creep radar” is an evolutionary adaptation designed to help women perceive and avoid threats.

Sydney male college students’ pro-rape chants caught on camera. University spokeswoman commented: “It’s important to show zero tolerance to this kind of behaviour.”

“Is prostitution empowering if you choose to do it?” Feminist Current’s Meghan Murphy writes:

“The assumption that the system of prostitution is inevitable, universal, and also totally fine is an ever-popular one. We see it on TV and in movies, and, now, in journalism, as writers and reporters adopt the politically biased term ‘sex work,’ which exists to erase both the reality and an intersectional analysis of the sex industry.”

Exited woman Tanja Rahm writes open letter to johns:

“You think you have a right. I mean, the prostitutes are out there anyway, right? But they are only prostitutes because men like you stand in the way of healthy and respectful relationship between men and women.

Prostitutes only exist because men like you feel you have the right to satisfy your sexual urges using the orifices of other people’s bodies.

Prostitutes exist because you and your peers feel that your sexuality requires access to sex whenever it suits you.

Prostitutes exist because you are a misogynist, and because you are more concerned with your own sexual needs than the relationships in which your sexuality could actually flourish.”

“Caring for home and family is real work and deserves proper recognition.”
