With traditional gender education, everyone is afraid that their daughters will be bullied, but no one thinks their sons will bully others—this is the beginning of a vicious circle. Boys protect girls girls protect themselves Beware of strangers The above three points are the concept of sexual violence prevention that adults often tell children. At first glance, there is nothing wrong with it, but it may have the opposite effect. Because sexual violence happens not because our “protective measures” are not enough (don’t forget, even if you stay at home. You may be exposed to sexual violence), but because of the “inequality of power” in society as a whole. Why is there sexual violence Behind sexual photo background removing violence is not mere sexual desire, but a display of "power" and "control". In other words, the perpetrators are usually people with greater power (such as teachers, supervisors, elders), or people who "feel" they have power over the victim (such as the dominant gender). And this phenomenon of inequality of power is precisely the result of stereotyped gender education. Traditional gender education has fostered the concept of "boys = strong, girls = weak", so many adults like to teach their sons not to cry and show weakness, and expect them to protect girls; for their daughters, they tell them to be obedient and be careful, thinking that They can stay out of danger. The original intention of this education method is to hope that girls will be protected by responsible boys, but there is always a gap between ideals and reality. The overemphasis of male dominance and the weakening of female autonomy will only result in the concentration of power in one group (such as masculine men) for generations, and leave other groups (such as women and feminine men) at continued high risk, A vicious cycle that is difficult to break.
