We’ve read this article written by “Tuthmosis” named “5 reasons to date a girls with an eating disorder”. Tuthmosis have written down five reasons to date a girl with eating disorder. These five reasons are the following: Her obsession over her body will improve her overall looks, She costs less money, She is fragile and vulnerable, She probably has money of her own, She is better in bed. He has also written an explanation after every point.
The following text is our respond to this stupid article:
5 Reasons to smash the patriarchy
1. A woman has unhealthy ideals.
The main reason why so many girls develop an eating disorder is because of the many ideals that exist in out society. Women are told to be skinny, to have big breasts, to be well trained (but of course not to well-trained because that will make her look like a man). She should have a pretty face, nice hair and perfect skin. This causes low self-confidence, pressure and a feeling of not be good enough. Why do we have to try to look a special way when we know we all look different?
2. Women are expected to please their men.
In all times women have been the ones who should listen to their men and follow their decisions through life. Because of the equal opportunities and the gain of feminism, the idea of that women are made to please the men is vanishing away from our current society. “Tuthmosis” describes eating disorder as a way to turn back the society to the “right” position. We think this is some bullshit. No one should be made to please someone else. Unfortunately, that’s not how it is today. Women are supposed to be thoughtful; to put someone else’s needs before her own and, of course, to look good, but not for herself but for the people around her.
Further on, Tuthmosis hasn’t described the sickness from the perspective of a person who is suffering with the disorder. It’s described as a benefit for the other half of the relationship, in this case, the man. The eating disorder has “qualities” like making the man save money because the girl won’t order a normal size portion, or making the man more powerful by using the effect of the girl’s low self-confidence. It will also insure the man a girlfriend with the “perfect body”, because she will always try to look “fit and trim”. If a person wants to find love, that person shouldn’t exploit someone else’s suffering.
3. A woman doesn’t have as much power as a man.
In Sweden, witch we say is “the worlds most equal country” we’ve never had a female prime minister. In the parliament there are 157 women and 192 men. Compared to the rest of the world that’s very good numbers, but is it really equal?
4.The men are the norm- the women are the exception.
Why is it so, that when we hear someone mention a football team, we automatically think about men. It’s not until someone says “the women’s team” we think about the women. And why does many languages contain words that exclude women, even though they are words that are applied on women. As an example, it happens that we say “en kvinnlig ordningsman” in Swedish.
5. The average women earn less money than the average man.
Let’s say that a woman and a man have the same profession and do the same tasks. Then it would feel like a matter of course that these two people should be paid an equal amount of money. Then why (why, why, why) isn’t this imagination applied in our real society? The fact that the average man earns 20% more than the average woman is unacceptable and it’s also pure discrimination.
To conclude: We are tired of people like “Tuthmosis” who do nothing but build up our already giant patriarchy instead of SMASHING IT!
