I love this image so much.
I’ve seen some women who are offended by this and say it’s ridiculous that her cleavage is showing and things of that sort.
Personally, I think it’s great.
Why should we have an image of a women with her hair tied up and flexing her muscles like she’s a man? (not that that isn’t great too!) In a way it suggests that when our hair is down, our breasts are visible and we wear (GASP) lipstick, we’re somehow lesser than men? We can do it! We can be feminine and successful.
You see what I’m saying here, ladies?
You don’t have to lose your femininity. Being feminine is great. Being masculine is great. Strength is not limited to one way of being.
Yes, thank you.
I never liked the one where she was all masculine, because that’s certainly not who I am. But it doesn’t mean I’m some weak being that can’t work hard.
“Okay, I have an idea for an update of the old Rosie the Riveter feminist icon.”
- “Oh? Sounds good, maybe a more inclusive series of pictures showing women with different body types and ethnici—”
“No, no, not like that. I was just thinking we could make her the same, just more feminine and pretty. Conventionally attractive white women are always getting shit on by the feminist movement.”
- “Uhm… wait—”
“Yup, okay, first let’s have her strong empowered facial expression changed to a sort of flirty, sultry gaze.”
- “But that’s—”
“Oh, and we definitely need to add some cleavage there too.”
“Okay, next lets forget the whole ‘strong arm’ thing and have her be fixing her hair.”
- “That is literally the opposite of—”
“Now let’s make her facial features more conventionally attractive!”
- “What? So basically it’s now JUST retro fashion pin-up of a white girl with an hourglass figure? Saying YES WE CAN… fix our hair and flirt?”
“Yeah, not ALL feminists hate bras and shaving, DUHHHHHH!!!!!!!! You should be a little more inclusive. Don’t discriminate against petite white cis girls!”
so it’s agreed we’re all following porcelain-horse-horselain now.
FUCKING THANK YOU. this image is just sexualised bullshit. we all know that we can be feminist and feminine, this is pretty well established.
“The image in question was created by Brazilian artist Will Murai, to accompany an article about ‘the end of feminism’ called ‘What do they Want?’ in the men’s magazine ‘Alfa.’
The artist’s statement says:
“This is an illustration I made for Alfa Magazine. This article talks about the end of feminism. The idea was to make the famous feminism symbol ‘Rosie The Riveter’ a lady who is giving up on her duties and trying to look sexy again.””
HOLY SHIT!!! Thank you so much for that source information. My jaw dropped. How insulting!!!!!!
“What do these broads want and how can we get them to shut up, end this whole ‘feminism’ thing and and go back to trying to look sexy for us men?”
