So here we all are for, hopefully, the final instalment about my adventures with B. I do hope any future dates I go on do not provide this much blog fodder, no matter how entertaining they’ve been for the rest of you.
Onwards to the misogyny and my wrap up at the end.
Friendship with men has been on my mind a lot lately. It seems to crop up in almost every conversation or blog reading session I do. So I figured it was time to address it here. In a ‘get all my feelings on paper (metaphorically) and then move on’ kind of way.
There’s a few different aspects to this but the main one that gets me annoyed is the idea that if you get turned down for a date, you should feel free to befriend the person who turned you down and essentially stalk them for as long as it takes to get that damn date. This is a bad philosophy. It’s one that gets rammed down our throats in almost every romantic movie, tv show etc. It rarely works out and in most cases, when depicted by Hollywood, it’s stalking. That’s not cute. It’s not romantic. It’s stalking. Stop it, Hollywood, you’re destroying social interaction for everyone.
Tonight I was convinced to watch ‘Enchanted’. Mostly because my friends put it on and I wasn’t ready to go home.
It’s anti feminist, it’s horrible and it made me sick.
Using some sort of rip off of the slowed down action scene first exhibited in the Matrix is crap.
Don’t do it anymore. Ever. For any reason whatsoever.
I will not watch your movie if you do this. It means you have no original thoughts and don’t know how to write a comedy. Spoofing something that has been done to death is not funny or original. stop it.
(Inspired by an ad for that ridiculous zohan movie)
Wow. Memo to movie makers. We know that men hate us. Women are well aware of it. We do not need to see all levels of misogyny displayed in a feature length film. STOP IT.
Is anyone else getting sick of seeing Giant Babies (TM) playing out their fantasies of misogyny and calling it a ‘movie’?
NOTE: There will be spoilers. STOP READING NOW IF YOU DON’T WANT IT SPOILED!
