The Prohibition of Masculinity

Is there a prohibition of masculinity?

Some would say so. Academic Christina Hoff Sommers argued in The War Against Boys that such bias does exist, and not just at schools, but is the predominant ethos in a society, in a selective war of retribution against patriarchy.

There are even such inexplicable discrepancies as the philosophical alliance between feminism and Islam, and feminists routinely lamenting an oppressive patriarchy of "benevolent sexism" and such alienating language as "you guys" (which presumably masculinizes a group, even one made up of women*) but concurrent with a conspicuous failure to denounce female genital manipulation.

Is there such a prohibition in effect?

Well, when you have

1) Female hygiene products broadcasted right there on television,
2) Erection inducing products such as Viagra advertised on the television, by sultry middle-aged women
3) Vaginal dryness products,

et cetera.

Is there a comparable comparison of men's products?

Maybe we need a hunk laying on the bed wrapped in only a small towel around his hip region, telling women how they can help him get it up by medicating their dry, sandy vaginas

Maybe we need a male commercial to discuss remedies for testicular itch

Or maybe, how about during the Nightly News we have penis pump advertisements, to espouse the wonderful benefits of putting your penis in a pump and sucking out the air?

OH! We can't do that now can we, that would be offensive! That would hurt women's feelings and scar children for life!

Instead, we should tell boys that they should really feel comfortable playing with Barbie dolls and wearing tutus, and if they want to cut their penises off and become women that that is totally natural, and a quack psychiatrist will diagnose it as such and prescribe a cocktail of hormone pills before they cut the penis off.

*Some of you here who speak French would also know that the gender reverts to masculine, even in a group of girls where only one guy is present. I suppose this is true in many other languages too. This is even besides the argument that "guy" is not really a male-specific descriptor. In fact one may even say that it is gender equitable to label girls as guys, because of the fault of exclusion which many women feel, really wanting to be accepted as one of the guys.

Dude, what channels are you even watching that still broadcast shit like penis pumps? First time in years I've even heard of those mentioned, and it's because of this thread.

I'm just saying, it's disgusting having to turn my TV on and every other commercial is Maxi pads, vaginal dryness, or some other crap.

I mean, if I was watching Lifetime network or Oxygen, yeah, I wouodn't be complaining, but when it's like every other channel, it's grating. I'm just saying, of we don't have an equitable number of commercials dealing with penile products, then is a 'soft' evidence of discrimination. Or should I say flaccid.

Okay, there are much more substantive arguments, such as why boys are being drugged at several times the rate of girls for normal childhood behaviors, and American children at large being medicated at several times the rate of European children.

What spurred this on is this new story about Donald Trump saying things about women. How can that be wrong? We've listened to for twenty years now that the government has no place in people's bedrooms since the Lewinsky scandal but now they are prying into Trump's proclivities. So they gave a complete pass to Clinton, but now will dig up some obscure interview from 11 years ago to implicate Trump as an abusive rapist.

I'm pretty sure Kennedy did this and I'm pretty sure Bill Clinton did a lot more than this.

And I'm pretty sure at this point we're only in the realm of verbiage and speculation. At the time we have convincing evidence that Trump committed a rape or sodomy, then we can discuss that. But right now, there's nothing to discuss. He said things that he thought were funny at the time, evidently now he does not think are funny. He's married the love of his life, a woman from Slovenia, I don't believe his behavior has continued or will continue.

But he doesn't want to grope a dry, sandy vagina, for crying out loud. That's just plain sick.

isn't Viagra, and related products, "penile products?" Wouldn't condoms (also advertised everywhere) also be "penile products?" You're own point contradicts itself.

Do people actually want or need a penis pump or other stupid shit you think should be advertised? No? Maybe that's why they aren't advertised...

Do women need pads? Wait they actually do, maybe that's they are advertised...

The problem isn't "why is this shit still on TV"
The problem is "why haven't you gotten rid of cable and moved onto Netflix / Hulu like the rest of the population.

I have an antenna, asshat. I get like ten channels, and some of them are quite good. For instance, one shows reruns of The Drew Carey Show, while another shows mostly crime investigation and other police shows, which are among my favorite types of programming. I also get a classics channel, and often find myself watching Taxi, The Brady Bunch, Gilligan's Island and some other old shit.

It was a way simpler time. Do you know I Love Lucy broke the pregnancy barrier on television, that was a time when it was impermissible to show a pregnant woman on television? They broke that barrier. It was also an era when husband and wife slept in separate beds and Lucy broke that barrier as well.

And it never would have happened where you could have douche and vaginal itch products and menstruation products on television. Oh the good old days.

TV ads will be determined by the market. If you are getting lots of female hygiene products advertised during your shows then chances are that those shows draw a large female audience. Hence products that target females are shown.

I don't seem to get many female hygiene ads during my sports shows ... they instead focus largely on alcohol, male hygiene (deodorant) and betting. Again I would say that is because they largely target their ads to the audience.

The reasons why testicular "itch" isn't advertised is a few reasons. 1. generally if they are itchy chances are you have an STD (so go see your doctor) 2. I would imagine this is a really small and niche market, these companies don't generally have a budget to advertise. 3. men generally aren't comfortable with such ads.

The bottom line is that ads are determined by market forces ... nothing to do with "prohibition of masculinity"

Yet if a female began complaining about guys talking about how much they appreciate ass you'd be okay with it.

You're a joke.
