This gallery of stock photo portrayals of “typical women” doing “typical woman things” has been painstakingly reshot with bears posing in place of the women to blow your mind.
This gallery has taken the internet by storm. It was created to shine a light on the backward thinking and ugly truths about our society and views on gender norms, bears, cats and fish and other things like that. Wow. Just wow. Share if this impacts your views as much as it did mine. Number seven especially.
1. Society looks at this woman holding a kitten and thinks something completely different than when they see a bear holding the exact same kitten. If you don’t find this problematic I can’t even.
2. This basically sums up what is wrong with our culture as a whole. It’s time for change. Just look at this.
3. What was once an adorable image is now clearly a microaggression when you throw in a bear.
4. How does it feel?
5. This picture is a totally normal picture of a woman getting a syringe pumped into her nose. Then you throw in a bear and all cultural norms are questioned.
6. Wow. Just wow. I can’t even… just wow.
7. If you wouldn’t let these bears hold your baby, why is it OK for these women to? Think about it.
8. Woman dares to raise hand to speak up in meeting. Why doesn’t a bear get the same reaction?
9. Old woman cutting fish. Seems normal until you see a bear doing it and you realize how deeply ingrained your bias towards either bears or old women or fish is. That cuts pretty deep, doesn’t it?
10. What do you think? Is there hope society will ever change?
