I was literally just thinking about this last night. Tumblr reads my mind.
It also creates a world in which women always lie— they always don’t say exactly what they mean because we are all aggressively passive, irrational bitches. And men are always seen as inherently honest, because they supposedly always say exactly what they mean, ie, the “foot in mouth” syndrome, the stereotype of men being blindly dumb and noncomplex creatures. (Why people are more likely to look at a female rape victim and and a guy, any guy— a college student, a cubicle manager, a CEO, a coach, a teacher— and firstly assume that the woman is making a false allegation.) So men are seen as dumb as a cow and women are seen as the snake in the Tree of Knowledge.
It doesn’t make the men look any better to be in the rape culture and misogynistic culture. I wish more men would realize that.
