Quote of the Day

[Content Note: Misogyny; sexual objectification; heterocentrism.]

"There's two kinds of men. There are men who are fucking misogynist pigs, and then there are men who just really love women, who think they're the most amazing people in the world. And that's me. Maybe the reason I was promiscuous, and wanted to sleep with a lot of them, is that I love them so much."Adam Levine.

LOL FOREVER! I love the idea that there men who are misogynist pigs, and men who love women, and, according to Adam Levine, the men who sexually objectify women and fuck tons of 'em are in the latter category. Sure.

Not being a misogynist pig is not defined by fucking lots of women. It's not defined by loving women, or even liking them. Not being a misogynist is defined by respecting women.

Which Adam Levine clearly does not.
