Typical aging broad tripe…
(Gawker) – When Geena Davis waded through the miasma of G-rated movies with her young daughter, she noticed a troubling phenomenon: male characters outnumbered female characters by a pretty striking margin. What’s more, male characters were more often portrayed in leadership positions, meaning that, if a young female viewer were to take away a lesson in gender politics from many of these movies, it’d be that men fit more naturally into positions of power than women, which is of course bullshit.
Davis shared with GOOD’s Sarah Stankorb some troubling findings about girls who are well-versed in popular media from an early aged, noting that
the more hours of television a girl watches, the fewer options she thinks she has in life. So, we’re clearly not showing enough opportunities for girls, showing female characters doing and achieving things and being in leadership positions.
She even enlisted the folks over at GOOD to make this cutesy feminist propaganda video:
Popular culture isn’t going to be happy until men are squeezing babies out of their rectums, complaining that their breast are uneven and gushing that Hillary Clinton is a strong male role model.
And at the end of the day, a woman still won’t be able to do the same work a man does. We’ll just have an even more fractured and dysfunctional society than we do now.
Good job pop culture!
