Gcdk: I’m going to take this out of the notes: This was a terrible idea. This is not the opposite of the male gaze, it’s literally a semi naked photo shoot for a magazine read mostly by men. This is “repackaging the dyke”, this is reinforcing the idea that sexy = value in reference to someone who was part of a massive sporting achievement, and reinforcing that message in a way that only applies to women. This does not celebrate a sporting achievement. This is “calm down Hank, that uppity lesbian who rejected your President is just a piece of ass like the rest of them, don’t worry, see we got pics here, enjoy”. You think men will see her “fuck you” gestures and decide not to masturbate fantasising about turning/curing/teaching/raping a lesbian? A cocky lesbian? You think the idea of teaching her a lesson won’t cross their minds once they are alone with her almost naked body? What exactly is empowering about this? That she’s still fuckable even though she’s a lesbian? That she’s still fuckable even though she’s an athlete? We are supposed to be arguing that fuckability isn’t relevant and shouldn’t be used to value or devalue us, not present women in ways that boost the fuckability rating! No men’s players get this kind of treatment. She has taken some really bad advice here. It really doesn’t matter if you all find her attractive; you’re not the target audience for Sports Illustrated are you? sidsass: ok but how are you going to leave out the best picture from the whole photoshoot this is the exact opposite of the male gaze and im OBSESSED with it digitaldiscipline: clevermanka: nearly 3k notes on this and nobody inserted those Jane Lynch gifs? sinnamonscouture:
