Objects

Just to be clear, I am a feminist. The following has unfortunate implications which are intentional but they aren’t my politics

A man stands before his collection of unopened boxes of Barbies he has taken years to collect and begins tearing them all open while screaming at the world. His wife stares on, horrified.

“What are you doing?” she says.

“I tried to end slut shaming! I tried to help end the notion that women were commodities! But it’s not working! So I’m doing the reverse!” he said as he opened each and every one of his valuable Barbies. 

He then proceeded to do the same with the Ken dolls because he wasn’t sexist. If women were to be objects, men were too. We all are objects, anyway. Let’s make us all equal objects.
