An interesting video essay by The Pop Culture Detective Agency exploring how men are routinely sexually demeaned (largely by other men) in movies and TV for the lolz.  To wit:

It’s hard to overstate just how common jokes about men being sexually assaulted are in entertainment media. Most popular comedic actors engage in this type of humour. Jokes are typically designed to demean, humiliate, control, or emasculate a male character for being the victim, or potential victim, of sexual violence.

Any excuse.

I’m producing a talk tomorrow at the Project with Una Mullally, Ivana Bacik and Colm O’Gorman from Amnesty International about sexuality and equality in Northern Ireland and the republic.

We’ve got a special guest from Norn Ireland – Jeffrey Dudgeon who is basically the Northern irish equivalent of David Norris– and led the way to decriminalising homosexuality in the 80s. He’s also a unionist!
