Kit Harington Says Men Face Sexism: I Think of Myself as More Than a Head of Hair

Kit Harington is opening up about sexism in the industry, and feels like he has been objectified in the past during interviews and photo shoots.

“I think there is a double standard,” the 29-year-old actor told the Sunday Times in a new interview. “If you said to a girl, ‘Do you like being called a babe?’ and she said, ‘No, not really,’ she’d be absolutely right. I like to think of myself as more than a head of hair or a set of looks. It’s demeaning.”

“There’s definitely a sexism in our industry that happens towards women, and there is towards men as well. At some points during photoshoots when I’m asked to strip down, I felt that,” Kit added.

    This guy is always bringing up sexism against men and comparing the problems women face and acting like men face the same issues. There is no comparison and does anyone even find him attractive. His hair is all he has.

    Of course he does. It must be weird and awful to have to show your body all the time for some twisted promo reason.

    Actually men do face sexism but it often get overlooked by people like you. People like you don’t even know what equality really means. When you are compromising equality to fit with societal standard, you are abandoning the true meaning of the word in favor of a double standard. So don’t call it equality if you can’t accept 100% of equality because anything less than that does not reflect the true meaning of the word.

    I’m glad he keeps talking about this because after years of talking about the long list of serious men’s issues, and facing disbelief, blissful ignorance and hostile feminists and sjws at every turn, it’s very refreshing to finally see this topic being discussed. Feminists and sjws don’t want to acknowledge this issue when it comes to men and they’ll fiercely attack anybody that dare to say otherwise. Don’t worry Kit, we’ve got your back.

    I love Kit, but he’s just describing sexual objectification, which… well, yeah, of course happens to both men and women. Sexism can involve objectification, but they’re not synonymous.

    It’s kinda thought to accept the whine about the obvious – acting is, and has always been, about the pretty people. If you don’t like being objectified, there are a million other actors quite happy to fulfill the requirements of the career. .

  • FerCat

    Yes, but when the media talks about it they make very little differentiation and even overplays it. Hence, the confusion.

    Have you seen the Zac Efron video on Jimmy Fallon? Where they’re playing a card game with water? Some bitch in the audience was horrible, constantly screaming at him to take his clothes and shirt off. You could see it made Zac very uncomfortable. All the women kept whistling and howling. Once this kept going on for a few more times, Jimmy had to tell them to shut it. It was extremely awkward. If it was reversed and he was a woman and men were shouting to take her dress off, people would lose their shit. Men do face sexism.
