Pro-feminist male looking for insight into gender, sex, and sexuality with as few pretenses and assumptions as possible, I hope. If you're willing, help me understand.
Disclaimer: I'm a male in a long-term monogamous relationship with a woman. We have two young children, who are also male. I'm always open to parenting ideas that'll make them into better people.

Watched this episode last night. My cackling at the Slimming Picture was uncontrollable. I’d get a hold on it, and but think about it later and the laughing would resume.

I hate when stuff like this and people frame it as “Google search does X!!!! HOW AWFUL!”
No, we do X. Google search isn’t programmed by people, it responds to the way WE search and the way WE use language. Remember how for a long time the Urban Dictionary entry for Santorum was the first hit when you searched for his name? That’s because WE trained Google to put that as the most popular hit by intentionally clicking on it when we searched for Rick Santorum.
To frame something like this as somehow the fault of Google makes it seem like an aberration, when the reality is that it is people who use Google, so basically EVERYONE, who equate “gayest” with “worst,” because it is we who are training Google through clicks and searches that we mean X when we type Y.
Let’s not pretend this happened because some prejudiced asshole at Google juked the algorithm — it happened because our society, by and large, is deeply homophobic and still uses words describing oppressed groups as pejoratives. It’s not “them,” it’s us.
I KNOW THEY HATE IT BUT IT IS MORE IMPORTANT FOR ME TO FEEL LIKE I AM DOING THEM A FAVOR
See, and I actually think this is alright, if done respectfully.
If you approach someone and very politely say, “I know this is unorthodox. I just wanted to say, you’re really lovely and I hope you have a great day”, and leave it at that, then in my opinion, that’s alright.
It’s sweet and respectful and it might really brighten someone’s day.
There’s a huge difference between something like that and being like “hayyy nena u a hawttie back dat ass up mami”.
I think the difference rests in the approach and the attitude.
CW: Unsolicited male opinion
What disturbs me about what he said is that he says he knows “women hate this.” This implies to me that he is doing it in a gross way.
Even all social/political concerns aside, if your only concern was getting women to be interested in you wouldn’t you want to avoid the things you thought you knew women hated?
Look, if posing naked were empowering, then the rich men who run the world would be lining up for it. We would be awash in naked dick shots of Warren Buffet and Bill Gates and Barack Obama; magazines would be filled with male politicians and financiers and moguls with their bits hanging out. Softly lit, perhaps; head coyly tilted, bunny tail on the ass. Power.
