with vinyl and stripes and a cup built right in

Oh I'm picking out a thermos for you // not an ordinary thermos for you // but the extra best thermos you can buy // with vinyl and stripes and a cup built right in // I'm picking out a thermos for you // and maybe a barometer too // and what else can I buy // so on me you'll rely // a rear end thermometer too

feminism gender roles gender stereotypes ugh Somebody just posted this photo on facebook.  I just.  Ugh.
Why should I have to “think like a man” in order to “work like a boss”?  Can’t I just think like the intelligent, insightful, and well-educated woman that I am?  And what the fuck does it mean to “look like a girl” or “act like a lady”?  I’m a girl, a lady, a woman, a person, and a human being.  I have some physical, emotional, psychological, and personality traits that are stereotypically feminine, and some that are stereotypically masculine.  And yet, I just act, look, work, dress, and think like me.

Can we just get over the women are passive and pretty and polite while men are aggressive and therefore successful attitude?  
Irritated.
