Scully Explains Feminism in the BEST WAY.

I’ve been watching Netflix streamed crime shows lately, particularly ones from other countries. Oddly enough, it was in a serial killer show with Gillian Anderson (SCULLY!!) and Jaime Dornden (Once Upon a Time, 50 Shades) that has boiled down the best description of everyday sexism I’ve ever seen.

Gillian Anderson, a special police investigator, is being questioned by her boss (a man) for her (completely consensual) one night stand with another cop. She responds thusly:

“‘Man fucks woman.’
Man: subject.
Fucks: verb.
Woman: OBJECT.
 
You don’t have a problem with that: that’s acceptable behavior.
 
‘Woman fucks man.’
Woman: subject.
Man: OBJECT.
 
You have a problem with that.
 
It’s YOUR problem.”
