taboo: Professor: Wings-Eating Show Hot Ones Is Problematic for Women By KATHERINE TIMPF July 12, 2018 6:33 PM oo O O O Hot Ones host Sean Evans (YouTube screengrab via First We Feast) A YouTube show that challenges contestants to eat increasingly spicy chicken wings has raised the ire of a Tulsa media-studies professor. ccording to a professor of media studies at the University of Tulsa, the YouTube show Hot Ones is problematic because it "manipulates inequitable gender hierarchies." In case you aren't familiar with Hot Ones, it's a show where the host challenges his guests to eat increasingly spicy chicken wings. Seems pretty harmless, right? An innocent chicken-eating show couldn't possibly be something that's actually hurting women, could it? Well, Professor Emily J. H. Contois thinks it could. According to her paper, "The spicy spectacular food, gender, and celebrity on Hot Ones," published in the journal Feminist Media Studies, the show "creates, maintains, and manipulates inequitable gender hierarchies through the interrelated performances of gender, food consumption, and celebrity." In other words: According to Contois, society just doesn't accept the idea of women eating spicy foods, and that is the reason that only eleven women have appeared as contestants on the show so far. Women, she argues, know that they don't really stand a chance on Hot Ones, because gender binaries "create power hierarchies by feminizing dainty, light, and sweet flavors and foods, eaten in small portions with restraint." The paper goes on to claim that society conditions people to believe that "real men" are supposed to "seek out and conquer" spicy foods, and that "being the type of dude who loves hot sauce is part of performing conventional masculinity.. through actions like disregarding risk and facing danger fearlessly" Women, on the other hand, aren't supposed to eat messy foods like wings, or to discuss topics such as the effects that spicy foods might have on their digestive tracts, because these topics are "often considered taboo for women to openly discuss, let alone as part of a celebrity persona" without adopting a sort of "cool girl" persona, which some women might not want to do. <p><a href="https://feminismisahatemovement.tumblr.com/post/175942345598/alaija-mogai-watch-oh-my-god-stop-a" class="tumblr_blog">feminismisahatemovement</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://alaija.tumblr.com/post/175942082248/mogai-watch-oh-my-god-stop-a-woman-who" class="tumblr_blog">alaija</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://mogai-watch.tumblr.com/post/175941005491/oh-my-god-stop-a-woman-who-eats-hella-spicy" class="tumblr_blog">mogai-watch</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>Oh<br/> My<br/> God.<br/> Stop.<br/> -A woman who eats hella spicy wings and doesn’t appreciate this kind of nonsense “academia” getting funded while departments contributing more than virtue-signaling and divisive dreck are chronically under-funded.</p></blockquote> <p>Some brave woman just needs to smash the piquant ceiling!!!</p> <p><br/></p> <p>Or just have a Thai woman go on there…</p> </blockquote> <p>Go easy on them, feminists ran out of things to be plausibly outraged about in around 1982.

 Problematic for Women

 oo O O O
 Hot Ones host Sean Evans (YouTube screengrab via First We Feast)
 A YouTube show that challenges contestants to eat increasingly spicy chicken wings has raised
 the ire of a Tulsa media-studies professor.
 ccording to a professor of media studies at the University of Tulsa, the YouTube show Hot
 Ones is problematic because it "manipulates inequitable gender hierarchies."
 In case you aren't familiar with Hot Ones, it's a show where the host challenges his guests to eat
 increasingly spicy chicken wings. Seems pretty harmless, right? An innocent chicken-eating show
 couldn't possibly be something that's actually hurting women, could it?
 Well, Professor Emily J. H. Contois thinks it could. According to her paper, "The spicy spectacular
 food, gender, and celebrity on Hot Ones," published in the journal Feminist Media Studies, the show
 "creates, maintains, and manipulates inequitable gender hierarchies through the interrelated
 performances of gender, food consumption, and celebrity."
 In other words: According to Contois, society just doesn't accept the idea of women eating spicy
 foods, and that is the reason that only eleven women have appeared as contestants on the show so
 far. Women, she argues, know that they don't really stand a chance on Hot Ones, because gender
 binaries "create power hierarchies by feminizing dainty, light, and sweet flavors and foods, eaten
 in small portions with restraint."
 The paper goes on to claim that society conditions people to believe that "real men" are supposed
 to "seek out and conquer" spicy foods, and that "being the type of dude who loves hot sauce is part
 of performing conventional masculinity.. through actions like disregarding risk and facing
 danger fearlessly" Women, on the other hand, aren't supposed to eat messy foods like wings, or to
 discuss topics such as the effects that spicy foods might have on their digestive tracts, because these
 topics are "often considered taboo for women to openly discuss, let alone as part of a celebrity
 persona" without adopting a sort of "cool girl" persona, which some women might not want to do.

I LOVE capitalist critical Appalachian culture. One of the first things i learned that fueled my interest was the origin of the word ‘redneck.’ Coal mining was HUGE from the mid 1700s to the early 1900s in states like Virginia and Pennsylvania as coal was a primary source of fuel for a lotta shit. Unsurprisingly, mine owners were capitalist pigs and exploited the hell outta coal miners. Like, paying them by the pound of coal they brought in rather than by hours worked, paying them in vouchers that could only be used at the store owned by the mining company, and offering no kind of health assistance when workers would inevitably succumb to illness and injury caused by the work they did. So miners began to unionize in the mid 1840s. To show solidarity and to make their employers take notice, unionists would wear red bandanas around their necks. And thus, the term ‘redneck’ was coined to describe the union supporters who eventually dismantled a lot of the exploitive practices used by the coal industry. Love these! Just discovered the hillbilly leftie podcast the Trillbilly Worker’s Party, and I am so excited to see more leftist organizing in these parts. We have an amazing history of labor struggle, and a fair amount of labor wins, in this region.

taboo: The Black Eyed Peas Say Music Today Does Not Address Important lssues @balleralert The Black Eyed Peas Say Music Today Does Not Address Important Issues- Blogged By @tktrinidad ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It has been eight years since TheBlackEyedPeas released an album, but now they’re back with a new single called “Street Livin’” which focuses on social justice and change. The Black Eyed Peas have been very vocal in saying that music of today needs a message, especially with topics like racism and sexism being at the forefront. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ During an interview with Variety, the group talked about sexism in the music industry and how music currently lacks a sense of activism, especially surrounding the MeToo movement. Will.i.am said, “Music is probably … it does a really good job at diminishing the power of a woman. And that’s really sad. Especially Hip Hop, rock — sex, drugs and rock and roll. A woman is a resource in that sentence. It’s sad.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Taboo then went on to say that music doesn’t have a call to action anymore. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It’s sad that, in this day and age of music, we don’t have a huge support for activism as we used to.In the ’60s, everybody was trying to make a statement with their music. It seems like more athletes are making a statement, standing up for causes, than actually in the music industry.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are your thoughts?

The Black Eyed Peas Say Music Today Does Not Address Important Issues- Blogged By @tktrinidad ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It has been eight years since TheBlackEyedPeas released an album, but now they’re back with a new single called “Street Livin’” which focuses on social justice and change. The Black Eyed Peas have been very vocal in saying that music of today needs a message, especially with topics like racism and sexism being at the forefront. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ During an interview with Variety, the group talked about sexism in the music industry and how music currently lacks a sense of activism, especially surrounding the MeToo movement. Will.i.am said, “Music is probably … it does a really good job at diminishing the power of a woman. And that’s really sad. Especially Hip Hop, rock — sex, drugs and rock and roll. A woman is a resource in that sentence. It’s sad.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Taboo then went on to say that music doesn’t have a call to action anymore. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It’s sad that, in this day and age of music, we don’t have a huge support for activism as we used to.In the ’60s, everybody was trying to make a statement with their music. It seems like more athletes are making a statement, standing up for causes, than actually in the music industry.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are your thoughts?

Dd you know that there are girls who skip school when they get their periods? If they can’t afford pads or tampons and don’t want anyone to see they’ve stained their clothes, they may feel like they have no choice. That’s not just something that happens in developing countries. It happens right here in the United States. Right in my home district of Queens, New York. I didn’t know that until recently. Growing up, nobody talked about their periods, even if they were having problems; there was a certain taboo surrounding the issue. That all went out the window in 2015, the year “the period went public.” Female elected officials and activists began to focus their attention on the tampon tax (which is a state issue); I turned my attention to how I could help women across the country. It was exciting to see coverage of the tampon tax pop up everywhere, including in Marie Claire. Last year, YouTube personality Ingrid Nilsen even asked President Obama about the tampon tax,and he was as mystified as the rest of us. But as great as the advocacy has been to eliminate sales tax on tampons and pads, menstrual equity issues run much deeper. Many women and girls across the country struggle with more than just cost, and I was constantly asking myself what I could do to help them. Eliminating the tampon tax is not enough for the 86 percent of women who start their period unexpectedly without necessary supplies. It is not enough for the low income women who cannot afford menstrual products on their own and can only get them through food pantries. It is not enough for the female inmates and homeless women who are denied these products or have them rationed. Can you imagine being told you can’t have any more pads even though you still have your period? Most Americans—across all income levels—believe that feminine hygiene products are basic necessities. So why is it still so hard to afford and access them? This week I introduced the Menstrual Equity for All Act of 2017, the first legislation in Congress to deal with menstrual hygiene product access. It has five different parts aimed at addressing all of these issues. You would not believe what female inmates go through to access menstrual hygiene products. The ACLU of Michigan filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of 8 female prisoners at Muskegon County Jail because (among other things) the prison denied inmates access to menstrual hygiene products, a condition considered inhumane and degrading. Female inmates in Connecticut only get five pads per week to split with their bunkmate, which means they may have to use a single pad for multiple days. I cannot imagine how humiliating that must feel. My bill would require each state to give female inmates and detainees as many tampons or pads as they need, whenever they need them—at no cost. If Congress has to deny states certain federal funds to get their prisons to change their current horrendous practices, then so be it. Homeless women also face serious problems when on their period. A report issued in 2014 said that homeless women experience the “degrading condition of not having access to adequate facilities during their menstrual cycles to be able to use hygiene products and change them on a regular basis.” Some homeless women resort to using rags or…nothing. Congress should be outraged by these conditions. Shelters should be able to use federal grant money to purchase tampons or pads—that is exactly what my bill ensures. Once I started learning about all of the ways women and girls struggle to access menstrual hygiene products during their periods, I realized how much I took my own circumstances for granted. I am grateful to be in a position to advocate on this issue and effect change. My bill may be the first effort at addressing menstrual equity on the national stage, but it won’t be the last. Especially not if passionate and talented women like you run for office and promote issues like these when you get there. We cannot stop until we reach real menstrual equity for women and girls everywhere. Join me in this fight and, together, we can win.
