• Tabloid Headlines If They Weren't Sexist
  • Posted 8 months ago by Jack Lowe · culture · 64343 Views
  • It's common knowledge that trashy tabloid newspapers and blogs love a sexist headline, focussing on female celebrities' clothing, make-up, hair, and weight rather than their professional or social achievements. Fed up with this, Vagenda Magazine asked their Twitter followers to re-write these headlines and send in the "normalised" versions, turning terribly demeaning article titles such as "Make-up free Jennifer Garner hides her enviable figure under dowdy slacks and shirt during coffee run in Los Angeles" into "Woman goes to get coffee. Doesn't consider it a priority that her outfit make her look look sexually appealing for this task." Take a look at more below.

    • Come on, don't be buthurt over this. Sexism towards men is not really a thing.

    • well said. sexism towards men does exist, obviously, but it doesn't really have any impact on men's lives.

    • Discrepancy in suicide rates between males and females would tend to show otherwise. Your comment is in itself proof that sexism towards men very much does exist. Simply because there are more men in high paying jobs, does not mean that 17 year old boys are now immune from all sexism thrown at them personally on an individual level.

    • Most of the tabloid articles are written by women.

    • it's not the fact that they're written by women; all newspapers and magazine writers have to adhere to particular style to suit their target audience, you are told to write a certain way and only the editors and people higher up the chain (mostly men) have the power to sign off on work to be published, if it's not trashy or sexist enough they won't publish it for fear of not getting enough clicks/views. It's not the writers fault, it's who they're employed by.

    • Exactly. So why call it "Tabloid Articles if they weren't Sexist" when in reality it's "Tabloid Articles without the Inherent Girl on Girl Bitchyness"?

    • Yeah I misread, hurried scanning at work doesn't cut the mustard. Sorry

    • You guys, sexism toward both sexes is real. The media objectifies women as nothing more than figures that can't do anything because they will be under scrutiny. However, they make a big deal when a famous guy makes a sexist comment. But when a woman makes a sexist comment, everyone thinks," Wow, she is a strong woman!" We are all human, so start treating everyone like they are. thank you for your time.
