“Would You Let Your Son Leave The House Like This?” Woman Exposes Misogynistic Double Standards On Twitter
Perhaps you’ve been sleep. But most of us woke sisters out here have noticed that men love to police women and their bodies. Men and society, which is largely controlled by men, have all these rules and regulations for women. And the minute you step out of the box and violate one of those rules, you immediately open yourself up for all types of scrutiny. See: David Banner telling women that in order to get respect she should show more mind than ass… As if dressing in a particular fashion prevents women from being assaulted daily. Still, there were scads of people, men and women alike, who just didn’t seem to get it. So in order to make the message a bit more clear, Twitter user, @THEDONLADY, flipped the script and showed misogynists, misogynist sympathizers and all other oppressors of women what it looks like when we apply the same rigid and problematic standards to men.
Take a look.
Sadly, there were some people who didn’t grasp the satire and sarcasm. But TheDonLady let them know that she wasn’t there to explain anything to them. In fact, she wanted them to feel the weight and pressure of being judged on frivolous criteria in the same ways that women are day in and day out.
Basically, she preached a sermon. And if the response from the internet is any indication, the collection plate has been passed around, and it came back full.
