Aussie Builders surprise public by mocking gender equality under the farce that theres actually any meaning behind their words
"Snickers paired up with Aussie builders to call out empowering statements to unsuspecting members of the public."
In this video four builders yell at people (almost entirely women) from a building, stringing together big words in the attempt to make some kind of a cohesive statement, ultimately making the passers-by uncomfortable and aggravated. The fact that the ad starts off with “What happens when builders aren’t themselves?” implies that misogyny is a default setting, and that *masculinity* and sexism come hand in hand. The entire thing screams sexism, and demolishes any potential progressive value it could have had by enforcing the idea that (cis)men aren’t themselves when they’re intelligent, decent members of society, and that it ought to be promptly fixed with a snickers. Tumblr was quick to grab at the out of context gifs of one of the men hollering some incoherent babble, throwing in words like “equality” and “gender” in a grasp for some kind of feminist value. In reality, the statement makes practically no sense, and in context works completely against what unwitting, gullible bloggers thought it did. Overall a patronising, misogynistic, overused joke that promptly needs to be taken off television. Try harder next time, Snickers.
The Best Birth Control In The World Is For Men by Jon Clinkenbeard
If I were going to describe the perfect contraceptive, it would go something like this: no babies, no latex, no daily pill to remember, no hormones to interfere with mood or sex drive, no negative health effects whatsoever, and 100 percent effectiveness. The funny thing is, something like that currently exists.
The procedure called RISUG in India (reversible inhibition of sperm under guidance) takes about 15 minutes with a doctor, is effective after about three days, and lasts for 10 or more years…
Oh, and when you do decide you want those babies, it only takes one other injection of water and baking soda to flush out the gel, and within two to three months, you’ve got all your healthy sperm again.
The trouble is, most people don’t even know this exists. And if men only need one super-cheap shot every 10 years or more, that’s not something that gets big pharmaceutical companies all fired up, because they’ll make zero money on it (even if it might have the side benefit of, you know, destroying HIV).
can this replace the normal contraception methods we have pls
This has existed for YEARS. They ran an article about it in WIRED magizine but I don’t think anyone read it .-.
