“I didn’t expect it would be all women and it was a small classroom and about 40 women were sort of sitting in a semicircle and the thought of spending two hours every week sitting there for the next four months was overwhelming.”
Male expects special accommodation because he doesn’t want to be around women, and then sues for discrimination. Amazing.
homeboy never heard of dropping??
So…he was stuck into the same situation that many women in STEM fields are stuck in but it’s different because it scared his little man feelings?
An actual shy person wouldn’t go to court over this. All that exposure and scrutiny? No thanks.
No, because see, he’s love shy which is a chronic inability to deal with women because they might not want to date you.
He went to a women’s studies class expecting men
HE WENT TO A WOMEN’S STUDIES CLASS EXPECTING MEN
I have -1920% sympathy for this douche.
lol attendance and participation were only 15% of the grade. it would have been possible to pass without ever attending if his work wasn’t shit.
He wasn’t stuck in the same situation as women in STEM fields (as said above) because this was only ONE single class. Women in STEM fields experience being outnumbered and ostracized for their entire academic career. NOT ONE PUNY LITTLE SEMESTER LONG CLASS.
I hope the judge laughs him out of the courtroom.
Entire academic career? Assuming we didn’t switch fields, it’s our entire professional career, too.
This kid ha a whole in the bag where his marbles should be…
On the plus side, I changed the sheets and started laundry…
Just invest in some masking tape or post it notes or something.
You get the same ‘Aha! A stranger will see this and be inspired!’ possibility, and it will take a cleaning person approximately .005 seconds to peel it off when it’s their job to do so.
Also, maybe someone who…
Andrew Putter: Native Work (Capetown, South Africa)
This new installation comprises 21 black-and-white photographs of contemporary black Capetonians, in ‘tribal’ or ‘traditional’ costume in the genre of the iconic ethnographic photographer Alfred Martin Duggan-Cronin. These are displayed in a grid alongside the same subjects photographed in colour, where the sitters chose what they wished to wear based on how they see themselves.
'Cognizant of the dangers inherent in Duggan-Cronin's colonial, ethnographic approach to making images, Native Work nevertheless recognises an impulse of tenderness running through his project,’ writes Putter in an article about his project published recently in the journal Kronos: Southern African Histories. ’By trusting this impulse in Duggan-Cronin’s photographs, Native Work attempts to provoke another way of reading these images, and to use them in the making of new work motivated by the desire for social solidarity, a desire which emerges as a particular kind of historical possibility in the aftermath of apartheid.’
By exploring his own complex feelings towards an ideologically tainted but aesthetically compelling visual archive, Putter enters the fraught terrain of ethnographic representation to wrestle with himself about his own complicity, as an artist and a white South African, in this troubled visual legacy. Art critic Alex Dodd writes that this new work ‘constitutes one of those rare instances in which it becomes unmistakably clear to the viewer that the primacy of authorial intention has everything to do with the subtle alchemy that determines the meaning and affective power of images. In this case, the immense respect and tenderness that went into the making of the photographs registers visually as a kind of auratic quality of dignity that shines through each and every portrait.’
