I suppose the bottom line is quite simple. Women and even the law might have changed towards gender equality, but as far as the male culture is concerned, the changes appears miniscule, IF they exist at all. Even if women feel empowered endorsing their inner 'sluts' and the right to behave 'badly', men tend to look at them through the same old eyes of the same old patriarchy and the result tend to be the same old nasty. This has finally been acknowledged, however. The guys that's on the forefront and joining the cause to stop violence against women are probably doing more than all legislation together to change attitudes on the streets.
I know, this post is coming out all weird. I channelled my inner asshole for this and did some 'deep exploring' together with a friend. We quickly entered pretty frightening territory (and some pretty hot) and were left rather unsettled. That's why it's just me on the photos ^^
To sum it up: I can't help feeling confused with the mixed messages at the Whore Couture Fair. I happily accept there might be something I'm too blunt to pick up as well.
