Welcome, to my innermost thoughts and random rebloggery...Warning Here Be Slash...Ask me anything ^ ^
But the idea that Well, this is just how the world is, so what? can be challenged. In November, Swedish cinemas introduced a new film rating to highlight gender disparity. To get an “A” rating, a movie must pass the famed “Bechdel test” — in which at least two named female characters talk to each other about something other than a man. As Ellen Tejle, the director of Bio Rio cinema, noted at the time, films that fail the test include “The entire ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy, all ‘Star Wars’ movies, ‘The Social Network,’ ‘Pulp Fiction’ and all but one of the ‘Harry Potter’ movies.”
No one’s saying, don’t make movies about men or don’t put them on talk shows. Instead, let’s remember that when we’re only getting a certain kind of story and a certain kind of perspective, we take it as the norm. Let’s understand that’s incredibly limiting and painfully reinforcing. You want to sell magazines or movie tickets, a fully clothed man or a woman in a bikini stand better odds of getting attention that anybody else. I get that. But at some point there has to be room in the conversation – whatever the conversation may be — for other faces and voices. And I can’t believe I have to say this in 2014.
This isn’t just about women. It’s about people of color. It’s about gays and lesbians. It’s about all of us changing the landscape, and committing to the promise that we as consumers will support a sports magazine that puts female athletes on its covers. We will watch movies about people who are not of our own race. We will cheer for football players who are gay. It’s about saying it. It’s about practicing it.
