Eli Rezkallah created a photograph series called “In A Parallel Universe” in which he where he reverses gender roles of 1950's advertising to show the absurdity of gender stereotypes. Although the pictures are funny, it is remarkable how almost 70 years later advertisement still uses the same gender stereotypes..
Hey, who says mania has to be a negative thing?! Every now and then with the help of my hypomania (and the wind blowing in the right direction!🌬💨), I dig out my paint brushes and create! Now, my paintings might not be original... but who needs to know?! Well... I’m actually hoping YOU know!! This is most definitely a knockoff of a well-known work of art! The first person to leave the name of the painting & the artist in the comments will win a free PDF copy of my memoir, The Other Side of Me-memoir of a bipolar mind! 📔🎁

You go 30 years without owning a car and then within the space of 6 months on to car no.2. It’s bye bye Jeep and hello to something that’s come all the way from Oxford like me #mini#minicooper#britabroad#stereotypes
“It wasn’t until recently that I began to see that the popular “black girl with an attitude” trope was just a way to oppress and undermine black women and our ability to engage, connect and feel. These negative traits are consistently pinned on black women, depicting us as angry even as we calmly state an opinion, or as having an attitude when we are justifiably angry. Who cares if we are understandably angry about the countless black people murdered in the past year?”
An interesting article - “The ‘angry black girl’ stereotype shows just how little we are respected”

MYTH #6 | Well this is assuming all older men HAVE money, which we all know is not the case. Women genuinely looking for love, don’t ever just choose one quality in a person to date them - if we did, no one would be single! Women have lists - and if a women just so happens to be dating a man who is older than her, there will be many reasons (or qualities on her List) as to why she is dating him. Sure, financial security MAY be one of them, but it’s certainly not the only reason. Not all women dating older men are gold diggers!
« My name is Martina, I’m 26 and I come from Italy and the Netherlands. In my society, men and women are constitutionally equal. And generally they are. There is only a biological difference between men and women: women bear children and are in charge of the social role of raising children. That’s where the difference stems from. When I was a kid I played soccer and my brother did too. Nobody told me I couldn’t, they just silently disagreed. I just had to accept the weird looks and being chosen last all the time because all the others were boys. The only thing I can’t do today and that my brother can is to take the train late at night, because that’s too dangerous.
I guess we are all bothered by men’s unwanted comments when walking in the street. I’m a dancer, and sometimes I just feel like a piece of meat because of the way men look at me. If they would put themselves in our shoes, it would help them understand not to have certain behaviors.
I’m a catholic and I dont believe it is an oppressive religion. It’s the people who oppress women. I think sex before marriage and abstinence are both reasonable choices, so if you’re going to get married within a religious tradition then go for it. But don’t think that because you’re religious you’re allowed to not use your head anymore, just make a conscious decision.
To improve women’s position in society, we should improve the structural inequalities. I would like to see more conflict in society. Both men and women who are willing to state their opinions. No need for a conclusion of who is right and who is wrong, just to accept that different opinions exist. » Martina, 26, Italy and the Netherlands.
Alright. Storytime. 👏🏾I don't normally speak publicly about these situations, but I'm going to this time around. 👏🏾So today @sierravillalobos was bored. I came up with the bright idea to go to the mall, so we did. I got a bath and body works gift card for Christmas and decided "eh! Let me use it!" I walk into the store wearing a black Nike hoodie(which was hecka comfortable BTW) and carrying a small Michael kors bag... Which BARELY fits my phone. As soon as I walked in I was greeted with looks of confusion. Asked if I needed "help", If I needed a bag for the TWO items I was HOLDING, and not one but ALL employees had tabs on me. Every corner there was another, "Do you need help today?" I noticed that this was all happening, but didn't want to say anything to Sierra. I proceeded to just grab what I wanted and paid because I didn't like the environment(even though I SHOULD have left it there! But I didn't want to give them the satisfaction in me leaving WITHOUT buying anything. Then their "ideas" about me would have been proven right). I felt uncomfortable. Disappointed, because I knew what was happening to me. And just disgusted with it. So while I was leaving an employee said, "Have a good day." No eye contact. No facial expression. Just that phrase WHILE locking eyes with my bag that I JUST got from the cashier. 🤗
As soon as we walked out Sierra said, "THAT WAS SO UNCOMFORTABLE! DID YOU FEEL THEM LOOKING? THEY KEPT ASKING IF WE NEEDED HELP! THEY KEPT STARING AT YOU! I WAS THE ONE WITH THE BIG JACKET AND BAG, BUT THEY DIDN'T LOOK AT ME!" And I just laughed and said, "Yeah dude. You have a black friend 😂" As unfortunate as it was. I was glad she was able to EXPERIENCE that feeling that some go through on a daily basis. Definitely an eye opener, and I'm glad she was able to see it firsthand with someone close to her. Not just another news article. Viral story. Nope. Firsthand. 🤷🏾♀️I'm not even mad anymore lol. It's just sad that this is the world we live in. 🤷🏾♀️#StayWoke#blackinamerica#equalityforall#IGuessILookLikeAThief#stereotypes#loveit#california#sandiego#unfortunate#dissapointing#love#joy#faith#pray
#SwipeLeft : Photographer and video editor @elirezkallah created a series called “In A Parallel Universe” where he recreated images fron real ads from the 1950s and 1960s that question modern day sexism: showing it through a humorous light to spark a conversation through role play. He says, "“Last Thanksgiving, I overheard my uncles talk about how women are better off cooking, taking care of the kitchen, and fulfilling “their womanly duties”. Although I know that not all men like my uncles think that way I was surprised to learn that some still do, so I went on to imagine a parallel universe, where roles are inverted and men are given a taste of their own sexist poison.”
Ladies, who’s tired of having stereotypes thrown at them? Get yours online. Link in bio. ⠀
Being a woman doesn’t make me weak. Being a black woman doesn’t make me angry. Being overweight doesn’t lessen my beauty. I AM NOT your stereotype!! I will always fit outside of your box!
