From the times of Shakespeare
In the original days of Shakespearean performance, women were forbidden from acting on stage and all of the roles, male and female, were performed by men. The class is also reading Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.
“Twelfth Night is a play that has a female character disguising herself as a man. When you think about what that was like in Shakespeare’s time, that means a man was playing a woman disguising herself as a man, creating three layers,” Scudera says.
Everytime a man dresses in drag, it's done in a mockery form towards women. Why is it racial appropriation is bad but appropriating women and getting laws passed in favor of men with feminine "feels" is applauded?
Sexism is the oppression that is the big elephant in the room. Racism gets called out ALL THE TIME. Sexism is filled with people being shamed for calling it out, barely talked about it and plenty of people wanting to bully you for even mentioning it from all sides.
Here is a video of a speech from lesbian in 1973 at a Gay Rally who says she is tired of the costumes of women men are wearing. THIS IS NOTHING NEW. Women knew back then and many of us know now.
And Here is what happened after...the women in the crowd weren't having it either..
