It's 2013--by now, we should have the cure for cancer, hoverboards, and all be dressing like Zenon. Instead, we remain entrenched in the archaic days of attempting to disprove a woman's argument by calling her "fat." 

The Representation Project compiled a supercut of advertising, television, music, and news to reveal just how pervasive this mentality is in every media outlet  imaginable. Though the video also takes time to commend the strides made toward equal representation, the clear truth is that women are still being used as props, sexual objects, and male ego-boosters. 

Watch the video below, get pissed off, and take action!
