Krystle, a junior sociology major at Colorado College, and Alicia T. both sent us this link to the Facebook page for men’s answer to Valentine’s Day, Steak and a Blowjob Day.

Warning! These images are not work safe! 


There are at least a couple interesting things about this:

First, it nicely illustrates the feminization of love and the masculinization of sex. Since Valentine’s Day is about love, it’s gendered feminine, and the things thought to be appropriate gifts for Valentine’s Day are both for her and feminine (candy, candles, flowers, romance, etc). The solution? Why a day for men, of course! (Since they get absolutely nothing out of Valentine’s Day.) And what would a day for men include? Steak and blow jobs.

Second, the Day might be used as an example of social networks and how new technologies facilitate a completely different kind of communication. Click here for an analysis of how Steak and a Blow Job Day, with more than 38,000 confirmed guests for this year as of this post, is an example of successful “viral marketing.”

Oh yeah… and the misogyny, always the misogyny:

Thanks Krystle!
