Ahhhh. The ignorance of some people. I recommend wasting 10 minutes to see how some would have us believe that the world is. Is there sexism? Sure. Is it this 1950’s on an acid-trip sexism? No.
In the spirit of fairness, I will acknowledge that there are examples that I have witness and likely have spoken against myself. I won’t blam her for being one sided about the message, it’s her intent to focus on only one side. Fair enough.
Click play, and this is where the acid trip starts.
Our central character is a weak, passive, self-righteous entitled, pathetic little snowflake, and the women are portrayed as brutish, ignorant and insensitive thugs. No, there’s no sexism on display, is there? Women as victim, man as perpetrator, this film reverses the bodies, but not the attitude.
I have had obscenities hurled at me, have been cat-called, and have experienced a number of similar things–by both men and women. The difference between the author and I is that I didn’t spend my day obsessing about it or whimpering. And to top it off, the author tosses in what she must think is her coup de grace, the bit of dialogue about how All Women Are Like That and how terrible! It’s as if the brothers have accomplished nothing!
This movie reveals not the sexism that a woman might experience, but what a gender ideologue would have us believe is the case. She could have made a powerful case using film, but unfortunately, she chose to be a lazy ideologue.
This film is an exposition of sexism–on the part of the author.
Frankly, it’s childish.
In what seems to be just another ordinary day, a man is exposed to sexism and sexual violence in a society ruled by women… (10 minutes.)
