I remember when i was a manager at publishing company in London and the fullfillment guys downstairs had boobs calendars on the walls in their production office and they sent me an email where a woman was being fucked by a bottle of champagne. I complained and nothing was done. When I grew up my dad told me i could do anything. When I got to the age of working I realized that it would be a struggle because some men, many men treated me like shit simply because I was female. When I was younger it really upset me. I was young and as a young women I wanted to be liked. It’s very upsetting to be treated such a way because you are female. Of course I also later met some amazing men, bosses, male workers who I loved and loved and was one of the “boys.” Those men I love. To the other men – let’s not let them get away with it because there’s laws about racism and now people are taking notice of homophobia and still women struggle. The one thing I don’t get is why young boys/men on forums are using rape language? I see it all the time. Why do they talk this way? I thought that being a young guy you’d want to fight other men but where does rape of women come in to it? Where do they get this stuff from? Fuck free speech. Stop “rape” on social media.
My 19 year old niece thinks that because I am a feminist I hate men. No, I hate misogynists. I love men. I hate bigots. Why does she think this way? because the male media has told her that feminists are men hating and lesbians and men hating lesbians. Bottom line is – Twitter and Facebook – if it was men getting these threats, if it was men who were treated as second class citizens and sex objects for centuries, if it was men who only really got legal rights in the 20th century, then all these rape threats and death threats would be stopped. There is no free speech. If there was – well go and try and threaten the president, the USA and use bombs and kill in your text and see how far you get. Social media should never be above the law.
Four British women have won the title in the last 77 years but according to the Brit media, Murray is the first winner and apparently we’ve all been waiting 77 years for a winner, completely ignoring the fact that FOUR BRITISH WOMEN have won the title.
It’s disgraceful. What is this teaching young girls when the history of women has been deleted from history? I remember when Vieginia Wade won the title in 1977. You know she was not mentioned once by the BBC or in the media.
The Guardian has taken notice. With male radio announcers and media in general judging sportswoman by their fuckability, with even this years champion being insulted, this is so sad for young girls and women who look to other women as their inspiration but paternity, yet again, bashes us down. Shocking.
Look here male journalists!
When are you going to get it that ONE film about women –“Sex and the City 2” -is not a film for ALL women? That’s 51% of the population! And less of the misogyny when YOU DO dismiss “Sex and the City 2.” I read it every day from male journalists -the same male journalists who orgasm over comic book hero movies. Yet you will notice very little, if any, negative press about the later movie genre. I’m not saying that comic book hero movies are bad. I love some of them but if I stated that in this article that would refer that “Sex and the City 2” is bad. I haven’t seen it, I don’t know.
When 70% of journalists are male, they write about the films they want to see and from a male perspective. Any film about women which doesn’t consist of said women taking off their clothes and being under the age of 25, is hurled at as some gross “chick flick.”
What male journalists fail to acknowledge is that “Sex and the City 2” is as much about Hollywood fantasy as “Iron Man.” Yet male journalists write about the former as if it is a true depiction of all women in the western world. They dismiss the movie because they don’t see that women AND men could ever be enthralled by high fashion in New York City; presuming we’d much rather see two men shoot each other. One genre isn’t better than the other. All I am asking for is a little fairness in journalism.
Why can’t male journalists write about what “Sex and the City 2” really is -a fantasy movie which alot of people will enjoy -despite the fact it has no guns and no comic book heroes?
Have I seen the first “Sex and the City?” Only on DVD. The film is a fantasy about four fortunate women who live it up in New York City. It’s pure escapism, just like “Iron Man.” Both movies have no bearing on my life and no similarities. When Carrie Bradshaw gushes at a new dress or a pair of shoes, this is dismissed by male journalists as the shallowness of money grubbing western women. When male movie characters gush over a new gun, no one blinks an eye and nothing is written about it. Take a look at the poster art for “The Losers,” starring Zoe Saldana. Instead of pontificating on the state of white middle-class women in America, isn’t it time that something was said about the total and absolute love of violence and the gun in this country?
Prince of Swine is a politically irreverent courtroom comedy that puts feminism on trial.
We let it happen. We believed that feminism was bad -we let men convince us it was bad and so our generation rejected it. Now look at us? Music videos with pole dancing singers, dancers who look like prostitutes, fashion media loving anorexic models, entertainment media loathing women over 40. What the hell happened? Our generation was duped. The guys won again.
This Memorial Weekend “Prince of Swine” promises to reignite the battle of the sexes and asks the question: “is feminism dead?” Written, directed and produced by Mark Toma, “Prince of Swine is a politically irreverent courtroom comedy that puts feminism on trial.”
Starring Nell Ruttledge, Mark Toma, John Klemantaski and Angel Marin.
“Prince of Swine” opens at Laemmle Sunset 5 in west Hollywood on Memorial Weekend.
Star Trek was okay. Shame about the women or absence of positive roles for women in the new 2009 movie. Surely 40 years after the first TV Star Trek, male filmmakers could have written better roles for women. Instead we have Uhura getting undressed, we see her legs (maybe the next movie we will see her tits and ass), she’s totty for Spock. Wow. That was it. Bring back Ripley!!! Star Trek sucks for women.
I feel let down. I was looking forward to an adventure and some heroes. But all we get is lads in space. How very disappointing for young girls. Nothing much has changed in Hollywood. Many male film critics I know have the same opinion about Uhuru. Awful role. I hope things improve for the next movie.
