The 24 Most Boobalicious Pieces Of Writing From Men About Women Characters

Art is subjective, but who gets to make art is a bit unbalanced. For many centuries, the people with the time and space to have their work shared, paid for, and appreciated were mostly cis men. Their perspective has been disseminated widely, especially in literature.

Things have been changing, but there are still some tropes that persist. The Male Gaze and the Male Voice is everywhere and it’s still looking at women and describing them. Horribly.

Twitter account @men_write_women and subreddit r/menwritingwomen both share submissions of writing by male authors about women characters. Not all writing by men about women is terrible, but the following selections definitely are.

Did you know boobs have a million emotions? They’re startled, tired, happy, smiling, mocking, accusatory. Men are always looking at boobs because they truly think they are the window to a woman’s soul! Give your breasts a laugh with these nightmare descriptions of how men see women. Then read a book by Margaret Atwood or something.
