Men Replace Woman In Sizzling Ducati Motorcycle Posters

Well, hello there…

FOREVER.

hahahaaaaaaaaaaaa

but noooooo. wrong wrong wrong. have you ever heard of something called “double punishment”? all of these women are posing like that because in a society like ours, this is what sells. nudity and sex references. this is the norm, the ideal, the rules. of course it’s sexist, patriarchal and from a man’s perspective. these women are already weighed down by this sexist culture so why do they have to be ridiculed and mocked by other men? other men who think it looks stupid when they pose like that, are dressed like that, etc? well why do you think they are in the first place?? i do not criticize these women at all, no, of course they can wear what they want and pose how ever they want to, in all sorts of situations. what i criticize is this; 

"This great series of promotional photos for the Ducati Panigale 1199 motorcycle created by the Motocorsa dealership in Portland, Oregon does a great job of flipping gender roles on their head. After shooting a seductive photo shoot with a female model, they also had a bunch of of men try to re-create the poses that the female model had struck. These photos may help men see how ridiculous the poses in these sort of calendar advertisements are – or they might help women see why those poses are so popular with men."

"a great job" ??? "these photos may help men see how ridiculous the poses […] are" or "help women see why those poses are so popular with men" (!!!??). seriously, these photos don’t help anybody. the women are portrayed as sexy mc supplies and the men as funny and spot-on. as fucking usual. this sexualizes the female body and un-sexualizes the male body even more, this shows that men’s appearance doesn’t matter (men can be "ugly" and still successful etc), this is not criticizing gender roles, this is ridiculing the female models. in my opinion, at least. and i don’t think that’s "a great job". it’s fucking rotten.
