Women Drivers Meme

Memes are some the most uncontrollable media outlets floating around our social media sites right now. Memes allow you to take any image and make it say or mean whatever you want. The original meaning of the image does not have any relevance. This is characteristic of memes is rather problematic and that is why they bother me the most when it comes to sexism. As you can tell this image is screen shot from my phone after scrolling one of my social media sites. A “boy” friend of mine thought this image of a woman in a car accident with the words, “Leave the Kitchen they said” It will be fun they said”, would be funny enough to post on his own account. By no means does this image have any comedic value as it shows a very serious situation, not be made fun of because she is a woman. Again, a woman’s worth is being equated with her ability to STAY in the kitchen where she belongs, because god forbid she wander beyond the stove, shown to bring much chaos.
