"Does anyone have a complete, up-to-date list of everything that women are supposed to do and not do so that they qualify for having their humanity respected?"
That's the question videoblogger Jay Smooth asks in his awesome video, "The List Of Rules For Women."
In under three minutes, Smooth covers common issues women face like street harassment, victim-blaming and sexual double standards, and perfectly nails how difficult it is to avoid them. For example, what's the "appropriate" way for a woman to conduct her sex life?
"I know that women are not supposed to sleep around all the time, because then you’re a slut and the reason men hate you," Smooth says. "But you’re also not supposed to turn down men’s advances all the time or put them in the 'friend zone,' because then you’re a cold-hearted b*tch and you’re the reason men hate you."
We particularly love his idea for a list of rules for men, featuring just one:
“Hello asshole, women are human beings.”
