Tim Minchin ‘Be hard on your opinions’
This is true. I saw a documentary about it. Men’s orgasm faces are allowed in teenage comedies rated PG13, but women’s orgasm faces can often push it into NC-17 territory, no joke. [x]
This is pretty much the equation:
women receiving abuse = PG-13/R
women receiving pleasure = R/NC-17
there is a whole documentary about women vs men and sex vs violence and film ratings. i recommend it
The Documentary is called “This Film Is Not Yet Rated”
first of all, i love this actress. second of all i love this documentary
So lemme get this straight
this is ok and sexy and fun haha
This is ok and artsy and oh wow how modern
THIS IS OBSCENE WHAT A SLUT I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS IS WHAT SHES DOING THIS IS MADDNESS HOW DARE SHE WHAT A SLUT WHAT DOES HER FATHER THINK I AM GOING TO FAINT
Is this correct?
I HATE this. I really fucking hate this. 1. The boys have no color. No color at all, as if their own personalities and purposes in life are so black and white and simplistic as if to not have purpose beyond being stereotypically male.
2. The girl is dressed…a) in pink b) like a princess c) in a skirt d) with flowers. Let’s break that down shall we? Pink symbolizes modern femininity which is connected too much with frailty and an inability to be strong or independent. To say nothing of the fact that the four older boys are tasked with guarding the female child perceivably from other male romantic interests. As if the only purpose that this creature laying before them is to find a life partner, and in a heterosexual and heteronormative manner. Why can’t the signs say “Send her to college?” Why is the only thing these boys can teach her is how to be a victim and defenseless? The girl is in a skirt. Why the fuck is she in a skirt? Is she going to a party? is she dancing in a play? Because why would a baby girl have to look like she is attending a coming out party? This is creepy and an example of oversexualization of girls, also a building block in the problem with society that women are seen universally as sex objects no matter their age, a likely component in the hyperactive and inflating rates of sex abuse. (not victim blaming, simply stating that we create a sexual image and attraction around young girls and children that should not be there, but is taken advantage of by sickos and the mentally deragned.)
3. This girl is on a scale. NOW YOU HAVE GOT TO BE FUCKING KIDDING ME! A scale? Like we don’t put enough emphasis on women’s weight and appearence, and not only is this infant already being socialized to be as culturally girlish as possible, but we have to make the first portrait of her life a image of her on an ALTAR that is weighing her worth in front of men and exposed to the eye of the public for their awe and scrutiny? Yep. Great idea parents! lets have your child on a pedestal for all to see and observe because plastering their image all over facebook wasn’t enough for you.
4. I want to shortly revist point one. The boys are all in jeans, wearing boxers that I can see. Hypermasculinization much? Sexualization of the boys too? These kids aren’t in shorts hanging out in the front yard playing a game of kickball so why have they been posed with their hair messed with no shirt in matching jeans with underwear exposed? They are being idolized as the stereotypical Ambercrombie and Fitch super male with the same haircut, the same outfit, the same smile and doing the same thing. Yay. We’ve made super clones out of the men and trained this little girl that because she is a woman men should jump to her defense and and also worship her while also giving her the store because of her appearance and simultaneously telling her she has not worth beyond that of what male dominated society gives to her.
Holy fucking hell this makes me sick and I can’t bear it anymore. I believe that I am likely to begin regularly posting these rants, and this one may continue.
burn. He’d do just as well or even better in a college judicial process.
This entire bit was fucking gold.
