Upward-thrusting buildings ejaculating into the sky, do cities have to be so sexist?
The Guardian

Toxic masculinity is built into the fabric of our urban spaces, writes Leslie Kern, author of new book Feminist City. And the results aren’t just divisive – they can be lethal

996
Glass ceilings and phallic towers. Mean streets and dark alleys. Road names and statues of men. From the physical to the metaphorical, the city is filled with reminders of masculine power. And yet we rarely talk of the urban landscape as an active participant in gender inequality. A building, no matter how phallic, isn’t actually misogynist, is it? Surely a skyscraper isn’t responsible for sexual harassment, the wage gap, or even the glass ceiling, whether it has a literal one up top or not?

That said, our built environments can still reflect patterns of gender-based discrimination. To imagine the city and its structures as neutral places where complicated human social relations are staged is to ignore the simple fact that people built these places. As the feminist geographer Jane Darke has said: “Our cities are patriarchy written in stone, brick, glass and concrete.” In other words, cities reflect the norms of the societies that build them. And sexism is a deep-rooted norm.

When women get off their fat asses and enter the fields of architecture and construction en masse, then they can build their vagina-shaped buildings and titty towers. Until then, working men need sandwiches made.

Meanwhile at the end of the article this feminist bastion is begging for donations. If women are so much greater than men, this article should pay for itself.

Lift your arms. Bet there's more hair under them than I have on my penis.

Sorry, ladies, but we can’t easily put giant vaginas into South Louisiana due to the water table.

The last major female architecture firm I remember being trumpeted was working down in Florida. They scrubbed all mentions of that after their shite design collapsed on a Florida highway and killed someone IIRC.

We used to have feminist cities. The problem is they couldn't grow up, only out. As you’d expect they got worn out and couldn’t prosper.
