missymalice:

you do not have to be paying close attention to something for conditioning to occur

you do not have to deliberately analyze a piece of media for the implicit messages to have an effect on you

attitudes can be impacted by things you never consciously picked up on

this is why it’s very important for us to continually analyze the media we consume and ask ourselves what messages it’s sending

it’s not your job to entertain him by sending him nudes

it’s not your job to satisfy him sexually because he’s horny

you are not required to do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable or that you don’t want to do

don’t be scared of “loosing him”

he most likely wasn’t anything worth keeping
