Screw this sexism

Spread the love

The following photograph is a Facebook Peme (Pic Meme, sometimes spelled “peem”). In its original form it had a caption that was sexist and offensive, feeding the idea that girls can’t do math (innately) and also suggesting that a good backup plan for a middle schooler frustrated with academics is sexual self-objectivictoin.


I’ve blogged about this at The X Blog. Here, I’d like to ask you to suggest alternative captions for this photograph. And by “alternative” I mean positive. Or funny but not sexist.
