10 “Typical” Portrayals of Women Reshot With Bears

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.

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?

    So very eloquent. Bears are your lawyer. Your hairdresser. Your Neighbor. The Bear who lives in the house your other neighbor used to live in before a Bear ate him and his family. It is time to accept the fact that Bears are here, and they’re not going away. You are.
