Get The L Out Asia
According to a joint investigation by In Other Words and artnet News—which together gathered and analyzed data from international auctions, leading galleries and the Art Basel fair—it is clear that the art market overwhelmingly finds greater value in work produced by men than that made by women.
More than $196.6 billion has been spent on art at auction between 2008 and the first five months of 2019. Of this, work made by women accounts for just $4 billion—around 2 percent.
It’s no secret that the beauty and cosmetics industry is geared toward female consumers. According to Euromonitor, global per capita spending on grooming products was $6.50 for men in 2015 and $58.50 for women. Despite that fact, most high-level decision makers in the industry are men. Though the beauty industry fares better in comparison to other sectors such as health, banking, technology and energy, beauty brands still have an average of just 29 percent female leadership across boards and executive teams, according to the LedBetter Gender Equality Index.
I'm the founder of Get The L Out Asia, a grassroots volunteer organisation that believe true lesbian independence can only be found in solidarity with feminists.
Inspired by Get The L Out UK, who sounded the alarm about how trans ideology has affected lesbians, including coming out with the idea of cotton ceiling (how lesbian existence is a threat to T+ advancement, similar to the workplace glass ceiling that prevent the advancement of minorities), trans activists led by trans women have been calling young lesbians who refuse to date or sleep with them as transphobic and transphobia, distorting trans rights as an excuse for abusive behaviours.
Trans activism turned misogynistic is real.
I just quit an online group after being attacked and called transphobic. I shared a friend's Facebook post, an article by Skylar Baker-Jordan about homophobic, anti-woman trans activism on a supposedly inclusive online safe place. When I shared that, I made it clear I have indeed encountered trans women bullying, expecting me to be subservient while wanting acceptance at the same time, I find the double standards hypocritical and unacceptable.
