I suggest all females watch this.

*i suggest all humans watch this.

If you haven’t watched this yet, you really should.

This is a must, girls and boys.

I agree that everyone should watch this. This is one of the few videos on female representation in the media that at least tries to point out that the way females are represented has a negative effect on everyone, not just women. 

I love that this`touches also on how media affects men, but wow. Stereotypes are perpetuated by television more than in reality, and they are so skewed because they have to be provocative or funny or any number of things that aren’t complete or real enough.

This affects not only women and men, but race, gays and lesbians, trans people, all people.

We all struggle against what we are supposed to be, what we are told we should be, and yet when positions in media and PR change, the image doesn’t. Because people get those positions by conforming to that image, and breaking out risks loss.

This is why it is so hard for anyone to be who they really are, because they are so busy being what other’s expect so as not to be harassed for not being what they are supposed to be.

Oh man, Geena Davis. I love her with all -y heart.

All my followers should watch this video

I wish they had paid more attention to the kid with braces talking about the pressure to be a misogynistic alpha male. Men are subject to the same kinds of pressure. Yes, men get most of the power in our culture, but we worry about our bodies, and more than that, about being a tough, manly man who takes control and doesn’t have feelings and plays sports and works on cars. Not trying to diminish the plight of women in our culture, because women are SO marginalized that it disgusts me, but I think the scope of our focus AS a culture should be a little wider such that we’re focusing on the cause of the issue, not just a symptom or two.
