With all the heat Anita Sarkeesian gets for her Tropes series, you’d think it was a new topic, but Gene Siskel & Roger Ebert had a discussion on a similar theme when they were talking about the influx of slasher movies on their show in 1980.


34 years later and this is STILL relevant

WHOA. I had never seen anything about them doing this.

I don’t care about this job, but there was apparently a miscommunication today and I did something wrong. So the first thing I did when I got home was burst into tears. I’m beginning to believe that I’m just not cut out for life. And it blows.

I started work today.  I’m officially a cog in the corporate machine.  I know it’ll be okay, because I literally give no shits about this job.  I still can’t stand it though.  Its fucking ridiculous that I spent all that time getting a degree just to be folded into a company at the bottom rung with a bunch of high school kids.  I’m disgusted with the world.  The plus in all of this is that I’ll be able to have a few bucks (and I do mean a few, very few, like a pittance) while I figure out and complete grad school…even though when I finish with that I’ll most likely be even less desirable as an employee.  Me and fiance need to finish our graphic novel and become independently wealthy.  That’d be nice.

'Sex' doesn't sell. Erosion of female self esteem does. The feeling of superiority over women does. Turning women into 'things' to be studied, scrutinized & judged and then calling it 'sex' does.

Sex doesn’t sell. Objectification does
