We know what you’re thinking: “You heart PLAYBOY?! Oh no, Ms., you’ve lost all your feminist cred.” But hear us out! Playboy.com published an infographic earlier this week that, on first glance, seems typical of the historically sexist publication. However, further investigation revealed the graphic to be delightfully—and surprisingly—feminist.
The first part of the graphic, pictured below, certainly gave us pause.
Scroll down a little further though, and you’ll discover that the only times it’s appropriate to catcall a woman, according to Playboy, are a) if the female in question is literally a cat, and b) if “you know her and have both consensually agreed to shout sexually suggestive comments to each other in public.” To that we say, well done!
Don’t get us wrong, there’s still plenty of sexist content on Playboy.com. But we do think this is a step in the right direction. Click here to see the full flowchart. We hope the lad mag will keep up the good feminist work.
