This. Pisses. Me. Off. The article starts off by saying how anal sex is something that many men enjoy, which they seem to think is the most important bullet point when it comes to anal se between a man and a woman. Men love it, so who cares if women don’t? AskMen.com doesn’t.
And obviously not all women dislike or are afraid of anal sex. But if you’re a man and you have a girlfriend who has expressly said that she does not want to try anal sex, don’t worry! You don’t actually have to respect her wishes, personality, or choices - you can CONVINCE her. The message here that AskMen.com is trying to give to men is that what they want comes before what women want, but are acknowledging that there may be some pesky obstacles, namely consent, in their way to having the particular type of sex they want.
The article raises some accurate points about how anal sex can be a stimulating and enjoyable experience for a woman - but raises these points to achieve a specific goal: They’re trying to provide men with tools to coax women into doing things that they simply do not want to do (or as they put it, to help men “fulfill [their] fantas[ies]”. Lovely.
Because in the end, if it’s good for a man, women kind of just have to learn to deal with it.

We’d gotten used to the fact that, for decades, people have been trying to tell us what to do.
That we should…
“Men-ups!” a project by Rion Sabean featuring men in traditional female pin-up poses.
That is hilarious. Men have their objectification going, but making the familiar seem unfamiliar is the first step to understanding how ridiculous this stuff is.
Also the bicycle one kills me, lol. Every damn time.
The feedback to the “Grace” Official Music Video has been incredible! In 2 days, we reached 1000 views and in 3, we are now almost at 2000. Still need to add a couple of 0’s to that to make it go viral, but it’s an amazing start. We’ve even gotten a wave of pledges after the release of the video,…
(This list will be forever in-progress. Please add on as you see fit).
- Challenge sexist jokes, such as dumb blonde jokes or jokes about rape.
- Avoid using words such as “bitch”, “hoe”, “slut.”
- Recognize when you “zone out” when women are speaking, when you value a man’s opinion…

GENDERED DENTAL DUTYThis commercial for Invisalign (a substitute for braces) is a new twist on an old theme: women are responsible for everything health, child, and chore related. The ad is, literally, “a message to moms.”
