The pediatrician we use has lots of art on the walls. One piece, above the scale for kids who can stand, says this:
"You are worthy of everything you desire."
Now, I am well aware that this is hardly Rape culture with a capital R, but I think this commonplace attitude that's being spread contributes to a lot of bad things. It creates an unrestrained entitlement.
I am worthy of...
- watching porn.
- not having to do chores / more down time.
And also spreads to things that aren't directly related to the oppression of women, but still isn't good, like "I am worthy of..."
- getting all As
- that shirt in the store
Anyway, just wanted to share. I think it's a really low key, but very socially acceptable thought that is likely contributing to rape culture.
