 This is something that I teach my students during the

 I have each students pretend they got hurt and need
 a band-aid. Children love band-aids. I ask the first one
 where they are hurt. If he says his finger, I put the band-
 aid on his finger. Then I ask the second one where they
 are hurt. No matter what that child says, I put the band-
 aid on their finger exactly like the first child. I keep doing
 that through the whole class. No matter where they say
 their pretend injury is, Ido the same thing I did with the
 first one.
 After they all have band-aids in the same spot, I ask
 if that actually helped any of them other than the first
 child. I say, "Well, I helped all of you the same! You
 all have one band-aid!" And they'll try to get me to
 understand that they were hurt somewhere else. I act
 like l'm just now understanding it. Then I explain, "There
 might be moments this year where some of you get
 different things because you need them differently, just
 like you needed a band-aid in a different spot."
 If at any time any of my students ask why one student
 has a different assignment, or gets taken out of the
 class for a subject, or gets another teacher to come
 in and help them throughout the year, I remind my
 students of the band-aids they got at the start of the

<p>How can anyone read shit like this and still think that men are human beings? They’re nothing but sadistic parasites and they prove this all the fucking time. Stay the hell away from them, for your own safety and sanity. <br/></p></blockquote>

<p>What the actual fuck</p></blockquote>

<p>I’m sorry but why should I assume 4 random tweets from twitter (which can be faked mind you) now represent all men? </p></blockquote>

<p>Let’s assume none of these people are trolls. 4 assholes on Twitter aren’t representative of all men. If someone was to make a post like this about any other demographic you’d all be screaming about bigotry.</p></blockquote>

<p>Those are some fucked up statements, but how am I supposed to react? What is the context of their saying these things? Come on Tumblr, you know better than this.</p></blockquote>

<p>Are you new? Tumblr absolutely does not know better than this.</p>

Being Alone, Dude, and Food: Professor: Wings-Eating Show Hot Ones Is Problematic for Women By KATHERINE TIMPF July 12, 2018 6:33 PM oo O O O Hot Ones host Sean Evans (YouTube screengrab via First We Feast) A YouTube show that challenges contestants to eat increasingly spicy chicken wings has raised the ire of a Tulsa media-studies professor. ccording to a professor of media studies at the University of Tulsa, the YouTube show Hot Ones is problematic because it "manipulates inequitable gender hierarchies." In case you aren't familiar with Hot Ones, it's a show where the host challenges his guests to eat increasingly spicy chicken wings. Seems pretty harmless, right? An innocent chicken-eating show couldn't possibly be something that's actually hurting women, could it? Well, Professor Emily J. H. Contois thinks it could. According to her paper, "The spicy spectacular food, gender, and celebrity on Hot Ones," published in the journal Feminist Media Studies, the show "creates, maintains, and manipulates inequitable gender hierarchies through the interrelated performances of gender, food consumption, and celebrity." In other words: According to Contois, society just doesn't accept the idea of women eating spicy foods, and that is the reason that only eleven women have appeared as contestants on the show so far. Women, she argues, know that they don't really stand a chance on Hot Ones, because gender binaries "create power hierarchies by feminizing dainty, light, and sweet flavors and foods, eaten in small portions with restraint." The paper goes on to claim that society conditions people to believe that "real men" are supposed to "seek out and conquer" spicy foods, and that "being the type of dude who loves hot sauce is part of performing conventional masculinity.. through actions like disregarding risk and facing danger fearlessly" Women, on the other hand, aren't supposed to eat messy foods like wings, or to discuss topics such as the effects that spicy foods might have on their digestive tracts, because these topics are "often considered taboo for women to openly discuss, let alone as part of a celebrity persona" without adopting a sort of "cool girl" persona, which some women might not want to do. <p><a href="https://feminismisahatemovement.tumblr.com/post/175942345598/alaija-mogai-watch-oh-my-god-stop-a" class="tumblr_blog">feminismisahatemovement</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://alaija.tumblr.com/post/175942082248/mogai-watch-oh-my-god-stop-a-woman-who" class="tumblr_blog">alaija</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://mogai-watch.tumblr.com/post/175941005491/oh-my-god-stop-a-woman-who-eats-hella-spicy" class="tumblr_blog">mogai-watch</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>Oh<br/> My<br/> God.<br/> Stop.<br/> -A woman who eats hella spicy wings and doesn’t appreciate this kind of nonsense “academia” getting funded while departments contributing more than virtue-signaling and divisive dreck are chronically under-funded.</p></blockquote> <p>Some brave woman just needs to smash the piquant ceiling!!!</p> <p><br/></p> <p>Or just have a Thai woman go on there…</p> </blockquote> <p>Go easy on them, feminists ran out of things to be plausibly outraged about in around 1982.

Being Alone, Dude, and Food: Professor: Wings-Eating Show Hot Ones Is
 Problematic for Women

 Hot Ones host Sean Evans (YouTube screengrab via First We Feast)
 A YouTube show that challenges contestants to eat increasingly spicy chicken wings has raised
 the ire of a Tulsa media-studies professor.
 ccording to a professor of media studies at the University of Tulsa, the YouTube show Hot
 Ones is problematic because it "manipulates inequitable gender hierarchies."
 In case you aren't familiar with Hot Ones, it's a show where the host challenges his guests to eat
 increasingly spicy chicken wings. Seems pretty harmless, right? An innocent chicken-eating show
 couldn't possibly be something that's actually hurting women, could it?
 Well, Professor Emily J. H. Contois thinks it could. According to her paper, "The spicy spectacular
 food, gender, and celebrity on Hot Ones," published in the journal Feminist Media Studies, the show
 "creates, maintains, and manipulates inequitable gender hierarchies through the interrelated
 performances of gender, food consumption, and celebrity."
 In other words: According to Contois, society just doesn't accept the idea of women eating spicy
 foods, and that is the reason that only eleven women have appeared as contestants on the show so
 far. Women, she argues, know that they don't really stand a chance on Hot Ones, because gender
 binaries "create power hierarchies by feminizing dainty, light, and sweet flavors and foods, eaten
 in small portions with restraint."
 The paper goes on to claim that society conditions people to believe that "real men" are supposed
 to "seek out and conquer" spicy foods, and that "being the type of dude who loves hot sauce is part
 of performing conventional masculinity.. through actions like disregarding risk and facing
 danger fearlessly" Women, on the other hand, aren't supposed to eat messy foods like wings, or to
 discuss topics such as the effects that spicy foods might have on their digestive tracts, because these
 topics are "often considered taboo for women to openly discuss, let alone as part of a celebrity
 persona" without adopting a sort of "cool girl" persona, which some women might not want to do.
