15 Gender Biases In Yang Liu’s Pictograms

In his last book Man meets Woman (“Man meets woman” would be the Spanish translation), the Chinese artist Yang Liu reflects and makes a scathing criticism of certain gender stereotypes, through a series of fun pictograms in which the tendency of our culture to adopt a double standard to measure different attitudes or behaviors according to the gender of the person who performs them is revealed.

In this series of pictograms fantastically made, you can observe how culture modulates society’s thinking to impose certain standards according to some aspects or personal characteristics of each person.

Gender prejudices, still in force

Why is the girl who has a lot of sex a libertine and yet a boy who flirts a lot is considered a seductive ? Do men speak little and directly and women are more complicated and indirect in their communication? These and 13 other gender prejudices spectacularly treated by the Chinese plastic artist.
