The hardships of being a woman have been documented since the dawn of the world. It's always a damsel in distress taking care of her husband, children, household, all the while looking after herself to comply with the beauty standards of the age. The many worries stacked on top of her fragile shoulders cannot compare in their severeness though to the general sexism beliefs about women and their bodies, to this day making it seem as though us ladies, do not own our bodies, but rather are here for men's entertainment.

Now, feminism and feminist views are not something that we usually associate with funny memes and jokes, but humor is often the best medium to convey cold hard facts and the ugly truth.

There are plenty of tweets about feminism that are so funny, even the manliest men laugh at them. But the online world expands way beyond Twitter, so Bored Panda has decided to gather some of the best feminist and sexist memes from all over the internet. Pregnancy struggles, anti-harassment clothes, this list features it all, and then some more of these funny jokes. Even Simone de Beauvoir would be laughing at these sexism examples. Scroll down to check it out and upvote the best memes by these brave and funny women.

Funny thing is how hetero boys like playing with Barbies because they were too young when they were last allowed to see a naked women's body. Kids are curious.

When I hear men tell me that they grew up with 'idealised' bodies on their toys too I have to explain that the girls' dolls were designed to correspond to men's ideas of an ideal female body and boys' dolls were deisgned to fulfill men's ideas of an ideal male body. Women's opinions are not involved in either. This is all male fantasy land.

As a child I had a big box of barbies and a yard full of big metal dump trucks and dirt piles. Kids should play with whatever toys they want.

It's called having an idol. It's called play. In his mind, the child is acting as if the toy is real and abstractly puts his mindset, as if he were the wrestler, into that toy. Kids don't play with toys based on their attractiveness, ya fool.

Anyone who thinks this way needs to look up The Baby X experiment. I would say that parents behavior towards a baby changes depending on if they perceive the child to be a boy or a girl.

That "Normal, Straight Toy" looks like a WWE participant gone hobo. Who in their right minds buys their kids that? Beside, Barbies are crappy enough plastic for it to be fun to decapacitate them....

La Petite Morte

Sheamus is a decent guy who wrestles very well. And how is bracers and underwear 'gone hobo'? I mean, WWF/WWE have wrestlers that have *actually dressed like hobos*. But I do agree with beefcake. Him, Finn Balor, and Drew MacIntyre....yummy Celtic men.....*sigh* Besides, most of the wrestlers, m & f are great role models. Especially for girls. Be a strong, beautiful, smart woman who kicks ass, take names, & put up w/ no crap? Yes Yes Yes!!! Several have degrees, Xavier Woods has a doctorate, ffs. They participate in charities that encourage kids, and prove that brains and beauty can go hand in hand, but that the brains are priority. Yes, I buy these for all my kids.

The image is kinda right actually (even tho it is not as simple as that unfortunately). Before puberty kids look for role models in the family and outside. Mum shows us how how to be a woman first, then we look for external examples, the street, TV and so on. Same goes for boys and this is why many young man without a man figure in their life are troubled (father, a close uncle, a family friend). So these toys are modifying your self image. Then in teenage years the sexuality is developed and teenagers started looking at the gender of preference and to explore it sexually. A young boy playing with a superman forms the image of a perfect man (a.k.a what he wants to become one day) and feels like eeeewww towards girls , but as soon as he develops his sexuality at 11-12 he gets much more interested into seeming a good boob then a sweaty muscled dude. The same way a gay boy might be more curious towards female action characters or barbies in young age, but as soon as he hits puberty he is interested into other boys.

of course it can cause confusion for boys very simple one toy is the way the boy sees himself in the future as a strong man packed with muscles the other toy will cuase the boy confusion then he will want to be like a women=gay its not that hard to understand if u use less than 0.0005%of your brains
