Women are sadly used to being called (or compared to) derogatory things.
That became quite clear when one of the lawyers interviewed in a BBC 4 documentary “India’s Daughter” which retells the story of the Dec. 2012 fatal gang-rape in Delhi, said the following:
We decided to test out his theory. Were women really like diamonds?
But that lawyer is not alone. Here are some other ridiculous things – animals, inanimate objects, you name it – people have compared women to...Instead of, you know, referring to them as normal humans.
1.This gentleman compared women to dolphins.
Nope, don't see it.
2.This proverb makes us look like bees.
Can't see how either, TBH.
3.Here we are, being compared to roads.
IDK, the woman looks a lot smoother to me.
4.Aaaand we're also fish, served with extra misogyny sauce.
No gills. Your argument is invalid.
5.We're actually fruits too, according to this bloke.
Not really seeing the connection here.
6.And "good" girls are a lot like dip, at least in this bro's dictionary.
Nope, not tortilla chip-appropriate at all.
7.Yeah, there are a LOT of food analogies...
8.And all good food needs to be protected, Like candy, which we are because this person said so.
9.This guy believes that when we're not candy, we dispense candy.
10.We're also computers.
Disappointed in your observation skills at this point.
11.This artsy explanation makes us artichokes.
Nope, we don't work well as pizza topping, sorry.
12.This dudebro seems to have grown the likes of us in his garden.
13.Mick here has dialled the wrong number.
Nah. Looks totes different to me.
14.This drunk person says we're like the sun.
Disagree. Nowhere near as hot.
15.This guy must be very hungry.
Because we sure don't look like breakfast material.
16.And this dude here thinks we can fly.
But nature disagrees.
17.Alex believes we're kitchen appliances.
But this comparison proves otherwise.
18.And according to this genius, we're oysters.
Don't live in the sea, sorry.
19.Chris is disrespecting women AND zebras.
We're not even remotely similar.
20.And we're also a deck of cards.
But a deck of cards can't dump you, sooo...
21.Lastly, we are cats.
Can you spot difference.
So while we women are used to this assholery, we aren't okay with it.
