Rejection

Um. So I’m probably one of the few folks who doesn’t think this is adorable. At all.

I think it’s fucking scary how this little boy keep pushing himself on her after she CLEARLY doesn’t want to be bothered with his ass.

And the adult behind the camera doesn’t intervene at all because it’s ‘cute.’

And how analogous it is to when grown ass men don’t take fucking no for an answer, no matter how much we push and shove and say no.

This is not cute. This is an absolute disregard of this little girl’s boundaries.

In the very bottom left gif you can see he’s smiling/laughing. Like this is some kind of game.

I would bet money that the person filming this is laughing and encouraging him.

This is how we teach boys not to respect women’s spaces.

^^^^^^^

Yes, ALL OF THIS COMMENTARY. It’s so hard to believe how we encourage this disgusting behavior in babies now. What. The. Fuck.

Men and women are socialised from BIRTH. Men develop these habits from BIRTH and they are reinforced year after year after year until they reach adulthood.

I have to speak up and say I don’t believe this is taught or socialized. These are toddlers. They haven’t learned shit. Throughout much of human history men have an innate collector / hunter instinct and this is why much of human history has men play this role for resources and power. Cave men? Rapists and hoarders. Just like a lot of the animal kingdom.

Does that excuse this? No. What we do need to socialize in youth is that in order to participate in this world and society as a human is to recognize that we are not animals, and kids should be taught that this kind of behavior is damaging to fellow humans.

Nurture over nature. We’re not monkeys anymore. But to act like it, we need to teach it.

Project for my Social Psych class last semester. This poster series was created to 1) challenge these internalized stereotypes by bringing them to the viewer’s attention and 2) expand the range of role models by including a diverse group of women. Each poster follows the same basic pattern: a woman who has demonstrated her competency in a particular area refutes the stereotype that appears above her in the form of “Girls can’t …”. While the posters target girls ranging from children to young adults, I expect the message would also cause people outside that demographic to question their own beliefs about women and power.  I designed each aspect of the posters with several principles of social psychology in mind:

Cleopatra is a good choice but a part of me kind of wishes Catherine the Great of Russia got a little more credit in the Western World. I mean, she was… Great. It is suffixed to her very name, and that title isn’t bestowed lightly. Alexander, Constantine, Catherine. All in the same class if you ask me. “The Great”.

Food for thought. Cool project in any case.

Tomorrow (Saturday) is the birthday of Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev - the man whose ground-breaking work led to the creation of the modern periodic table of elements.

Here’s a fun look at his contributions from Lou Serico and TED-Ed:

I Mende-love that guy. Thanks for the table, D!
