ffsake. Look, I realise I haven't seen DOLLHOUSE yet but that is because I've been burned (and um fucked) by writers I had thought/hoped/really really really wished respected women in their work only to find out they use us as much as any old fratboy misogynist does on a drunken saturday night. I AM FRAGILE AND HURT BY THESE BETRAYALS PEOPLE.


anyway stolen from fengi who snagged it from maggiesox (here is a fancy link because I reckon that is the way to steal http://maggiesox.livejournal.com/1607526.html?view=29842534#t29842534 )

"See, there's this whole thing where they actually put a girl in a refrigerator, and I got up, stomped off and walked away. Look, show, winking meta-jokes about how badly women are mistreated in mass media really aren't in place in the same show that flat out showed me cheesecake shots of Eliza Dushku's ass. To be brutally clear: You don't get to make in-jokes about the mistreatment of women in pop culture when you're busy....mistreating women in pop culture. There comes a point where the knowledge that the show is ostensibly about objectification does not make it okay that I had to spend an hour watching women be objectified. Seriously, this show gets one more hour, and if my hackles stay this far up, I'm out, Whedon or no. (wing2j pointed out that I should maybe cut the show a little slack, as it has only been one episode. I countered by asking him how many times he saw Eliza Dusku's ass and side-boob in the promotional materials for the show.)"


seriously. INKDOT I am awaiting the results of your investigation.


and You, even though I am not saying your name you are on very thin ice with me considering what your who and what reveal about your idiocy, could you be more oblivious and self-interested? I think not. You are a stupid girl.


I need a hero, I'm calling out for HERO HERO HERO kiss,

  • We gave women a network (more than one in fact.) And it's not filled with strong women in worth while roles. It's filled with shows about how wives kill their husbands and shows detailing how the latest star is getting fat. Women do not portray women, any better than men do.
    • lol @ we gave women a network lololol oh thankyou might man.

      "Women do not portray women, any better than men do."

      who said they did??? Some men and women portray it well deadwood, carnivale... but I have no idea where you got the idea I think women would do a better job. read into things much? having a vagina doesn't in any way make you feminist or accountable. jfc that's obvs.
  • Yeah, Heroes is a fun show.

    I watched Dollhouse and didn't like it at all. It was really disturbing. Disturbing isn't necessarily bad but there was no real accompanying redeeming quality along with it.

    I'd suggest watching it for yourself, just so you can form your own opinino, but be prepared. I'll watch it once more tomorrow just to give it a chance at redemption.

    It's funny... The Terminator series that comes on just before is like a polar opposite.
    • I am glad for your thoughts

      I found Dollhouse on youtube I am a little anxious to watch it. I don't want it to hurt my feelings... I NORITE I am so silly and too sensitive for the real world :(
    • "I watched Dollhouse and didn't like it at all. It was really disturbing. Disturbing isn't necessarily bad but there was no real accompanying redeeming quality along with it."

      This is my main concern :(
  • I have been lax in my investigation. Veronica Mars would be disappointed in me, for a variety of reasons. :(
    • maybe nancy drew will still be your friend

      • Re: maybe nancy drew will still be your friend
