Reverse sexism

Sexism is a "prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex." But lately, when you follow the news, you can't help but wonder, isn't the outrage over portrayal, or non-portrayal, of women, often misplaced?

Nikon recently ran an ad campaign featuring a team of 32 professional photographers to promote their latest camera. All of the photographers happened to be men. Social media users were outraged. "Guess they forgot to invite me? I'm a #nikonambassador. #itsnotonlyNikon. Is the Nikon D850 for Men Only?" Lynsey Addario said in twitter. "Idiotic ad with all men. Shame on you Nikon. Is the Nikon D850 for Men Only?" tweeted Sue Weisler. Rosalind White shouted a bit as well, tweeting "Seriously #Nikon? Is the Nikon D850 for Men Only? Hell no!"

But what's the problem here? Aren't men allowed to do anything without women anymore? Aren't companies allowed to use only men for their photo shoots, or pictures, or ads, or....you get the point.

People, it's not sexist not to include women everywhere.

I agree that sexism has no place in 2017, but neither does reverse sexism.

Imagine if the men in the campaign would have been replaced by women instead. Imagine if there would have been 32 female professional photographers. There wouldn't have been any problems with it. People would have given it a thumbs up and Nikon would have been congratulated on a great campaign. Ain't that silly?

Fighting for women's rights is one thing, but to put everyone on the ground who dares to use only men for some ad campaign, people, grow up!

The president did nothing wrong

That seems to be the main statement coming out of the White House as well as Trump's own mouth. Be it any, and I do mean ANY other person, doing ANY other job, he or she would have been fired a long time ago for ANY reason

Isn't it the media's job to call the president to order?
Reverse sexism

Trump has always been saying that the media is against him and ... you know, anything he doesn't like, is obviously fake news. But by saying that isn't he actually calling for an end of democracy and free press?

Guns to the blind? Only in the United States
Reverse sexism

Lately there's been lots of talk about gun laws in the United States due to the most recent school shooting. While some eight year old's suggest teachers should all be armed with weapons, others are demanding stricter gun laws. And then there's Iowa.

Living on flat earth? So where's the edge?
Reverse sexism

Although it's now year 2018 not year 200, there are still enough people who think that round earth is just a conspiracy theory and that the earth is actually flat.
