Re: Objectification of women

I hate the term "PC" because it suggests that people are doing it because they don't want to be seen to do the wrong thing, or say the wrong thing, when I see it as common decency. That is, treating...

Re: Objectification of women

Forgetting the notion of being "PC" - god, could I hate that term more? - the brutal truth of these simple, uncomplicated tropes (of John wooing/rescuing/fixing Mary, who has no agency in her story,...

Re: Objectification of women

What an excellent and thoughtful thread! It makes my feminist heart sing.

Re: 50 Shades of Grey

Anything that targets women or girls and is about romance or sex - for women's pleasure, not men's -- tends to engender large amounts of hostility. It's a special kind of hatred.

I've read the first...

Re: Entourage vs. Californication

But I like Leo as an actor now. Don't get me wrong. He's just not sexy.

And Californication is now on my Quickflix list, as we speak. :-)

Re: Entourage vs. Californication

It obviously resonated with the audience, but I didn't believe him at all. It felt contrived and insincere. Plus, he looked about 12 which was ew. (I was in my 20s then, so wasn't showing my...

Re: Entourage vs. Californication

He is/was bland and forgettable. Plus I hated Titanic, but anyway, I never got the Leo thing. A lot of women didn't get the Leo thing.

Re: Entourage vs. Californication

I don't doubt it, but it would have been interesting to see more women who didn't act like this. They exist, they're apparently the exception, so that makes them more interesting to me. Not to...

Re: Entourage vs. Californication

I agree. I never got into Entourage, though have managed to watch a lot of episodes. Just never in order. (I don't think that mattered - I never liked Vince, and his mates were not evolved enough to...

Re: Begin Again

I just watched this for a second time with my teen daughters, after being pleasantly surprised seeing it in the cinema. There was nothing else on, and I was desperate to see a movie. Positively...

Re: Writer Emergency

I bought two packs - one for me, and one for teaching purposes. (Plus the two donations.) I can see so many ways to use these cards in the writing workshops I run, quite apart from using it for my...

Re: Homeland - 4th Season

Totally with you on this. Such a disappointment. Though as said above, it's been on a steady decline since that stunning Season 1.

Re: Gone Girl is everything that's wrong with writers

I'm talking about well rounded, fully developed evil/bad woman main characters - who aren't defined in some way by their sexuality. They're light on. I'd forgotten Kill Bill. Though still she was...

Re: Gone Girl is everything that's wrong with writers

Oh - and yes to the above. I believe youth culture is way ahead of the game. YA fiction is paving the way and it's a really exciting time to be part of the shift. (Even if it's really only here that...

Yes - I have a million parental things to do now too. (Shopping with daughters for one - my most hated of exercises!)

Very cool to see the shift. I hope it continues into teenagerhood, where so...

Re: Gone Girl is everything that's wrong with writers

The next one is coming out in May next year, so maybe I'll save up some horn tooting for that one! :)

Re: Gone Girl is everything that's wrong with writers

Of course they exist! I don't pretend they don't. But I'm saying that they seem to be the only types offered when the villain is female. And it's boring! We have two options for female villains - the...
