Hi everyone so a while back I made a post about sexism in episode stories, so I thought I continue it on this post because I’ve notice more sexism appearing in stories and it’s been bothering me again so I thought why not voice my opinion once again. Also Your free as well to disagree with me. This is just how I feel about everything in episode stories.
So I noticed that a lot of authors, like 98% percent (especially big authors) love to stereotype men and woman in their stories. That men= players and woman=pure. It seems that authors have their female mcs all be sex repulsed and can’t have any sex unless it’s with the love interest or if she does have sex it’s with a boyfriend and it’s usually bad sex, it’s almost like authors are saying the mcs shouldn’t have sex unless it’s only with the love interest which is sexist, but if the love interest has sex he can sleep with who ever he wants and it’s alway good sex, because to authors men can’t have bad sex.
That is sexist because I have some male friends(not the same friends from the other post) who like to do hook ups and they said they had bad sex before, so that’s not really realistic. I as a person who’s alway been labeled the good girl, I like to do hooks up and guess what? Just because people like to do hook up does not mean their incapable of being exclusive or in a relationship with someone.
And no not every person who likes to sleep around has been cheated on, not every person who sleep around will alway say yes to anyone who wants to hook up, people can say no. Yes it’s very possible for people who like to sleep around to be loyal to someone their interested in.
This is the other stereotype on see on episode, where the love interest is instantly interested in the mc but sleeps with any woman because his a man and man who sleep around can’t say no, it’s so disgusting to see this stereotypes in stories that people want to read to escape life, how can they when they end up seeing those stereotype? And if authors that badly want to write their stories that way should at least put a warning saying it’s purely fiction and to not take seriously (but the thing is they won’t because they want to teach their readers to think the worse of men and that woman are perfect)
It’s also like the author is also saying that people who sleep around can’t be loyal or never fall in Love unless it’s with good girl/boy, and authors and readers have no idea how these stereotypes are hurtful, I’ve been approached by other woman before in the past who have told because I like to sleep around I’m not capable of being in a relationship or that I must have been cheated on which is why I sleep around. They have also said similar things to my male friends as well.
It’s also ironic how these authors talk about how their against slut shaming when they don’t even realize that they literally slut shame their own characters.
Like another thing I noticed with stories is their alway try to make sure the mcs are loyal because to show woman are better than men. Like the man alway makes the mistakes, the man end up getting another woman pregnant, the man sleeps with another woman when he’s “in love” with the mc, etc. now if we reverse the roles could we say the same thing about this? If the woman made mistakes, if the woman got pregnant by another man, if the woman had casual sex with another man when she’s “in love” with the love interest, would the love interest still want her then?
Another thing I noticed is the mc and love interest alway get other people who want to go after them and the people that go after the love interest alway end up sleeping together but all the people going after the mc, never do because woman are loyal and men aren’t.
We already live in a society where woman are slut shamed, so why do authors try to teach their readers that woman should all be sex repulsed, and shouldn’t be interested in sex unless it’s with someone their gonna basically end up marrying but men can sleep with who ever they want because their men.
I’m just tired of seeing these stereotypes in pretty much every story. I’m pretty sure this is gonna continue on, so Im thinking of maybe leaving the community because I highly doubt these authors actually care about sexism or are anti slut shaming. and like I said if authors would add a warning saying its fictional then that would be ok because then authors aren’t spreading false information but that’s not gonna happen because authors don’t care.
So let me know what you guys think again this is just my opinion you are free to disagree with me.
