When asked about sacrifices. “To bring up the term ‘sacrifice’ in relation to our lives, is slightly obscene I’d have thought”.

This is amazing.

I’m glad this has a name now; I always referred to this phenomenon as GOOD WRITING.

Teenage Girl Blossoming Into Beautiful Object: Full Story

Holy—

“Ashley has really developed into quite a striking assemblage of physical attributes that are found to be sexually attractive in our culture,” said Parker’s uncle Keith Hayes, expressing astonishment at how his niece had steadily matured from a precocious youth into a shapely, ravishing thing devoid of intellect and personality. “It’s hard to believe that she used to be that little girl [capable of subjective experiences] that I remember. Now look at her—she’s such a lovely vessel for displaced sexual frustration and voyeuristic lust, just like her mother.”
“Seems like just yesterday she was this creative 7-year-old kid, pretending her Barbie was the first woman president,” Hayes added. “My, they grow into little more than consumer goods so quickly.”

Marveling at the rite of passage that all females make from girlhood into entirely disempowered objecthood, Hayes expressed confidence that the 17-year-old would one day become a highly prized physical possession for “one lucky guy.”


The Onion’s feeling sassy today

DAMN….. The Onion is on point….

Now one film has single-handedly bucked that trend, passing the Bechdel test, and with the best portrayal of women in an action film I have seen in years: Dredd.

Put simply, and this is extraordinary, there is no difference between the portrayal of male and female characters in this film. The women are not sexualised, weaker, shown less, or more emotional, and their wardrobes are genderless, but neither are they simply rendered as personality devoid hard-asses… The women characters are excellent characters who happen to be women.

Full Article - Dredd: A Brilliant Portrayal of Women in Comics


This film is struggling to make budget in the US - please help it do well and spread the word!

I wanted to see this film before I read this review but now I want to see it even more. 

(Also the Bechdel test isn’t even hard to pass, directors are seriously slacking.)

I watched this film the other week and I can say that it is a fabulously well done Dredd film, and it’s also incredibly feminist and yes, though it does pass the Bechdel test, that is through one scene of dialogue.

It’s great though and Judge Anderson wasn’t dumbed down for the action film audience - which I rejoiced at, in the comics she was well written and cool too, and they wrote her well in the films. 

This was the Dredd flick I have been waiting for, please do go and watch it!

yes! this! it was a gory, gory thing to watch, but such a well-done movie.
