You know it's going to be a special post when I quote the bible.
I have been watching the fall-out from Riptide and Titstare (nicely summarized here) via Twitter while working on a talk I'm giving in a couple of weeks. The talk features my work on women leaders in academic medicine, but I am starting with some background on the US suffrage movement and the next wave of feminism beginning around 1960.
For your edification, I post the following:
Next we completely lose our feminity...
Finally, we take over the world!
Letting women vote meant sharing power. It could only lead to no good! I'm sure any woman who failed to find these cartoons funny was told that she couldn't take a joke.
It seems those in power never want to give up any of it, even to make things right. Thus, we get terms like feminazi and apps like Titstare.
For the best illustration of the issues I have seen, please enjoy this video:
