That is why they are the most resistant towards intersectional feminism and body positivity.

Partnerships take place between equals. A barely legal adult woman is and cannot be the right partner for a 35 year old. They aren't on equal footing and as a result the one with the more wealth, status or even life experiences inherently holds more power over the other.

Older men often trade their acquired and inherited social capital for youth and beauty. Ironically enough, these are the two commodities patriarchy deals in.

Disgusting. It is very well known that women face harassment at a very younger age, and more often than not it comes, not from their peers, but older adult men on whom the onus is.

Let's a start a conversation about your experiences. Tell me, how old were you when someone above 25 hit on you.

Older men who date much younger women, reinforce and make explicit the transactional and hierarchical nature of romance. They reveal the extent of differences men and women are living by.

The media, cinema, literature, all of them are filled with examples that celebrate an atrocious age gap. And establishes the same lesson over and over again. That women get less valuable and desirable as they age.

It's not uncommon to see a man in his late twenties or above dating a woman barely adult. Ofcourse the common argument in defence of this is "they're in love". But that's the thing. Romantic love can't and shouldn't be a reason to dismiss a behaviour that is largely harmful.

Unfortunately there isn't a lot of data available around this and the social and cultural normalisation of men being with younger women around the world, has only made it difficult to peel back it's layers.

As mentioned earlier, I will be taking over this week. Today I'll be starting off to discuss something that is in reality an extremely common behavioural pattern and yet not much is spoken about. Which is - Older men and their tendency to date younger women. (1/n)

Good morning people, this handle did not have any activity happening yesterday due to some backlog from one of the curator's end. But we're back!

We had hoped this bill will work with us to think through some of these, but instead it ended up perpetuating the same bias and discrimination against us that it claimed to end. Regressive legislations like that should have no place in an evolved society!

We are not even saying gendered spaces don't serve any purpose or are always unnecessary. Nor are we saying that creating a third category or transgender spaces will solve the problem. These are complicated situations that need nuanced solutions.

It's high time we started looking at the world for the gendered mess that it is! Be it language, access to spaces, facilities, protections, opportunities, even things like clothes, hair, body language, everything either requires or places a gender stamp on us.

Keeping adults segregated is one thing, but what could be the rationale behind making little kids wear gendered uniforms as markers and keeping them in gender segregated spaces in schools, for instance? This makes so many trans* kids drop out, which hurts them in multiple ways.
