He is also smashing his penis into Pebble's "cereal bowl" (and we know from Patriarchal porn that the vagina is often named the "cereal bowl").A clearer image of the rape culture cannot be found. Bam Bam is raping Pebbles.
she is apparently complicit in her subjugation, both present and future

Bam Bam is raping Pebbles.Yes, and both Bam Bam and Pebbles were indoctrinated into this patriarchal rape culture by their fathers Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble. Other Cocoa Pebbles cereal boxes feature both Fred and Barney on the front, and Wilma and Betty are nowhere to be seen, obviously at home in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant.http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4016/4405087315_d4b38091e3.jpgInterestingly, Barney is often shown trying to steal Fred's Pebbles. This is obviously a metaphor for Barney's inappropriate sexual interest in Fred's daughter, Pebbles, who is portrayed as the property of her father, Fred.
Wow. Isn't that shocking? And shocking that it's not shocking, if you know what I mean.In total, Raj listed 14 characters from kids' cereal boxes, every one a male.Before you scoff at this blatant sexism as Raj's friends did, remember: these characters are designed to appeal to your kids. Huge companies poured millions of dollars into creating these guys, to make them into household names. So why are female characters completely missing from this line up?Can you imagine shopping at Safeway with your kids and seeing shelves lined with cereal box after cereal box, all featuring images of an all female a cast of heroes and villains? Do you think you'd notice? Do you think your kids would?Why is it so normal for parents and children to see an imaginary world where girls go missing?
