17% of cardiac surgeons are women, 17% of tenured professors are women. It just goes on and on. And isn’t that strange that that’s also the percentage of women in crowd scenes in movies? What if we’re actually training people to see that ratio as normal so that when you’re an adult, you don’t notice?

…We just heard a fascinating and disturbing study where they looked at the ratio of men and women in groups. And they found that if there’s 17% women, the men in the group think it’s 50-50. And if there’s 33% women, the men perceive that as there being more women in the room than men.

Fetishizing ‘power’ in women characters – having them kicking ass and always being ready with a putdown - isn’t the same as writing them as human beings.

why you should tag for triggers:

yes I can unfollow you in one second but no I cannot get past seeing that thing that disturbed me/upset me/made me have a flashback/panic attack in one second, or even a few hours, or a day, or a week, or sometimes even a month or longer

There are more charts if you click through.

I’m so glad this info graphic is going around, because so many people don’t realize how ageism and misogyny play hand in hand and how the sexualization of young girls play into this.

How Final Fantasy X Helped Me Realize My Own Internalized Misogyny by Kelly Murray
I disliked (or in this case, wrote off as “boring”) an awesome character just because, deep down, I judged her for being a woman. I assumed she fit certain tropes I’d been fed my entire life, and I assumed that most female characters couldn’t be interesting.
