“What is the Definition of Manhood?”

Hi Pouters

I think sometimes we all need a reality check. We live in a society, especially in South Africa where violence against women exists and rape culture is a very real thing. I do not want to make everyone live in fear but just a gentle nudge, that hey, this is real, it’s happening… and obviously not only in South Africa.

 I am not sure if you have been following the terribly sad news of the recent spate of gang rapes in India in the past several months, however the Times of India newspaper is currently running a set of adverts imploring men to treat women with respect through the stark statement,

“The true test of your manhood is how you treat a woman. All woman. Any woman. Every woman.”

Personally, I’m pleased the newspaper is questioning the traditional aspects of toxic masculinity, like “rash driving” and “drunken brawls“, which some men do think defines their manhood. Yet, I also think their conclusion about proving your manhood by behaving a certain way (even if its the right way) is problematic : “If you do not respect a woman, you are only half a man.”

That’s the flip side of the same thinking that says guys aren’t manly if they don’t want sex all the time. Just like sexist expectations of femininity can imprison women, sexist expectations can imprison men, too.

I’m all for eradicating rape culture and believe that South Africa could truly learn something from shocking adverts of a similar nature. But is the answer to tell men to act like “real men? In my opinion, no. It’s time to tell them to act like good men.

PLAYGIRL OFFERS PRINCE HARRY 1 MILLION US DOLLARS

Hiya Poutlings!

Those of you that follow us on Facebook may have seen my little blurb post about Prince Harry’s naked photos that got leaked onto the internet.

the naked chef, oops, I mean the NAKED PRINCE.

To which a royal source had confirmed the pictures were infact of Prince Harry and his pasty white bottom… in more news that would make all the posh Brits drop their tea cups…. (I am far from being on the posh ones, but I did drop a tea cup this morning 😦 )

Well, it was only a matter of time until the media started to jump on the bandwagon, and now magazines worldwide are clamoring to do get him to do it again and photograph the bits no one got to see. Playgirl has taken the cake this time though!

THIS IS REAL PUBLICATION. I LEARNT SOMETHING NEW. I THOUGHT IT WAS FICTIONAL. HAHAHA.

Everyone pretty much knows royal protocol would avoid this type of exposure, excuse the pun, at all cost, but Playgirl are offering him this, for lack of a better word, opportunity, just because they can… and plus, score on publicity for them too, right? I wasn’t entirely sure Playgirl was an actual publication until now.

Playgirl is ready to offer  Harry $1 US million for the chance to photograph his junk, but they tell E! that it’s obviously a pie-in-the-sky dream; the Playgirl publisher Vincent Stevens said:

“There’s no way in the world that he would ever consider this, but you’re talking about numbers in the six figures right off the bat.”

Ooh. Six figures. To Royalty… AS IF! Not even the slightest chance… He probably spent more than that on his Vegas bar tab in which got him into this mess in the first place.

His poor grand-ma-ma, she must be ever so shocked, horrified and mortified that the magazines with PLAY (Playboy, Playgirl) in the title are so obsessed with anything related to royalty like that downside to Dutchess Kate’s family, her cousin, Katrina. I would love to see him trying to explain himself to the Queen, because her tits must be in on giagantic tangle. Poor old dear. Silly Harry.

Oh well, at least he had fun that night! 😛
