Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.

(Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us).

Jessica Rey - The Evolution of the Swim Suit

bolding mine

And therefore if you wear a bikini then it is your duty to force men to pay attention to you as a human, not a thing.

MY SCIENCE TEACHER CAUGHT THE TABLE ON FIRE AND HES JUST STARING AT IT

I LOVE SCIENCE TEACHERS

I’M SORRY BUT HOW BADLY DID HE FUCK UP READING HIS CALIPER?


#my environmental science teacher was demonstrating how pumice can float#so she just went around the room dropping them into people’s water bottles#but one of them didn’t float#so then she lit a match and dropped it into the bottle#and it blew up#that’s how we found out that the kid was drinking alcohol at school x

I don’t understand how book readers are saying this scene was 100% consensual or loving in the books, because it really wasn’t.
Things that point to the scene being rape:
Cersei refuses Jaime initially.
He ignores her and kisses her so she can’t really speak.
She is physically resisting him.
He never heard her.
I repeat: He never heard her. Cersei is protesting verbally, giving Jaime reasons why she does not want to have sex with him at that time in that place and He never heard her.
Does that sound like enthusiastic consent to y’all, cause it sure as hell doesn’t to me.
Not to mention this scene feeds into the whole “Ignore her if she says no because she’ll be totally into it once you slip her the D” bullshit, which, imo at least, is actually sending a more fucked up message than the message sent by depicting the scene as pretty unambiguous rape—at least from the viewer’s perspective.  I’d seriously doubt that Jaime considered it “real” rape, just like many people IRL don’t consider it rape if it’s with someone they’ve previously had consensual sex with.  Not saying it’s right, just saying I don’t think Jaime meant to hurt Cersei, but he did, because their relationship is ultimately destructive and unhealthy and I really don’t know how book readers or show watchers could read it as anything but.
