I can’t begin to explain my love this picture.
Well first of all, you were taught that women are all those things at the top because of institutional and cultural sexism that holds females to all of those expectations. Nobody calls this “gender equality” because it isn’t. Even a seemingly positive messages like “All women are naturally sweet” are examples of benevolent sexism. This is every bit as damaging to society as overt negative sexism, because it restricts individuals to certain set roles, and unlike overt sexism, it often goes completely unnoticed.
Second, being treated equally and being “the same” are not the same thing. Saying “Women are the same as men” is a lot like people who say “I don’t see race,” which not only is a bold fucking lie but also erases the different social/cultural experiences that people have had, which might actually matter a whole fucking lot to those people. (Like transgender, nonbinary gender, and intersex individuals, who have a very fucking different experience of gender than cisgender men and women, and are entirely unacknowledged in this post.)
When you say, “X Y and Z are all the same,” what you’re really kind of saying is, “The different experiences other people have had don’t matter to me.” Equality in diversity isn’t about ignoring the differences that people have, it’s about respecting and accepting them. If you want to strive for equality, don’t ignore people’s differences—understand and embrace them.

Most of us also did a few illustrations, you can see them here:

You may say I’m a dreamer
but the media men beg to differ
Neil Cicierga, everybody.
nac0n said: Oh man tell me about it. Hardest part is actually figuring out how to form the letter. “Should this be before this? “”Should i write this?” etc. I feel you.
I totally sent that shit now though! If I’m lucky I’ll spend the summer washing dishes at a Visby restaurant :D
I’m writing a ‘personal letter’ for a summer job application. I really suck at writing about myself, it’s like I have this huge mental barrier for that sort of stuff. It’s really easy when I think about it, but when it comes to actually writing the thing I get discouraged so easily. Everything I write looks stupid D:
