    You know what the one of the main problems for some is with girl power in movies imo,that before a movie is even out the focus has to be put on that like it is all it has to offer so when it is out some people go hyperfocus on the female empowerment aspect only,and directors/actors are also guilthy of this because they can not help themselves making statements on twitter about gender politics that will mostly just apeal to a small group that notices it but will get overblown by critics.

    Links with feminism will get fastly made and these days people have seen a lot of bad examples of it that get in the spotlight to be instantly put off by something that is not even lightly touching the toxic part of it.



    Am i making sense?:p

    Do not mind the grammatical errors please,sucks these can't be edited.

    I think so, yeah. I mean I consider myself to be a feminist, and I'm capable of distinguishing between, you know, sincere conviction about the struggles that women often face in life (or have faced, or whatever applies) on the one hand and just lazily pandering to women on the theory that doing so is a money-maker in today's world. That distinction I can grasp. I mean I don't enjoy obviously superficial, canned lines and whatnot better than anyone else does.

    But there is also a reason why female empowerment is a relatively fashionable theme in filmmaking at the moment (whether or not it's always well-executed) and that's because the culture broadly is clearly having something of a feminist moment right now, the origins of which can be easily traced to the election of the current U.S. president. It's not a coincidence that the immediate public reaction to that was the largest demonstration in American history and that it was specifically known as the Women's March.

    Whether one was a big fan of Hillary Clinton's or not, a lot of women (myself included) find it very depressing that she was defeated by a clearly unqualified guy who was caught admitting to sexual assault shortly before his victory. The guy isn't a sexist, he's a cartoon. That felt personal even if many Trump supporters didn't have any such intention. It's just obvious that this moment in "gender" politics is very much a reaction to that development. It's in this context that movies about girls and women have begun to outsell movies about boys and men. Along with that comes both the good and the bad.

    As a European seeing how the American public can behave in this limited view i got on it ,it can be a bit irritating.Tribalism,duality and the inbetweens do not speak out that much while truth is mostly never one of the extremes.Feminism is not really a thing here where i live and i do not think actual groups of feminist activists do exist here,i have been searching for them out of curiousity but to no avail.The actual few that called themselves that that i met were just pure haters,i remember me making fun at my sister when i was a kid cause yeah we just constantly did that to eachother as siblings and being treated that whole day as shit by a grown woman because she thought i was cruell to my sister.I grew up mostly with women as i had no brothers and i acknowledge there were certain unconcious genderroles put upon us although to this day i'm certain it also must be partly instinctive and genetic to feel the need to protect as a male i assume and partly social culture and traditions.But i did never grow up thinking that one was above another in a way and that goes way back.

    I find that good movies with women or men have mostly been doing well,as long as there is something to enjoy about it then people will watch like the first few alien movies or terminators,badass women right there . When a movie want to sell itself when the focus on the gender takes away from the plot and when it treats an audience like it needs to give a lecture then i might have a problem with it.
    Lectures arent always a negative but people want something behind it too.

    My problem with American elections/presidents is mostly that dinosaurs get being put in the front to vote on,always so much traditional candidates instead of younger and modern people.

    Hey, might you happen to be British by chance, if I may ask?

    on 18 February 2020

    Belgian, but moved to the Netherlands some years ago and still work in Belgium.

    on 18 February 2020

    Aaaah. I asked because you were talking about your experience with the women's movement in your area and the composition of the feminist movement is different in different countries. Most of the feminist thought leaders with whom I'm inclined to agree are British ones at present. I'm also an avid reader of the Canadian blog/site Feminist Current, which offers an unorthodox take on a lot of women's issues. I'm not very familiar with what may be going on in Belgium, I'm afraid.

    Anyway, there are a lot of reasons I consider myself a feminist. A lot of the women I work with, and also just a lot of my female family members (including myself personally) are survivors of horrible physical and sexual abuse and are motivated in part by those experiences, and just by feeling demeaned and ignored a lot by society in everyday life. It's a very male-dominated culture. I also had a very lively feminist aunt who I kind of looked up to. And also, honestly, the treatment of women in gaming in the last decade in particular (social movements like #GamerGate and #NotYourShield) has also reinforced my sentiments.

    I find the concept of gender roles preposterous. I mean, being a lesbian, I don't understand how the proponents of such ideas square them with the simple existence of lesbian relationships, which by definition oblige women to perform all social roles. Same principle for same-sex relationships between men. How are such relationships even possible if men are just born to be breadwinners and women to be domestic caretakers; if it's really that simple? I don't know. That doesn't make any sense to me.

    Genderroles(outside of what is inprinted in our genes) come down to parenting,if i would have or when i have a child i would find it important to focus on its happiness and how
    i can steer that in the right direction so it has the ability to learn and grow without much worries and not forcing it into the mold i was forced in,wanting to cry as a boy but not being able to do it because that would look weak feels very lonely because none will know how you actually feel about things and you will never get support when being sad or hurt.Sadly some men will take that as the way to raise kids and so that cycle goes on with seemingly coldhearted men that cannot express what they feel.
    Today that has absolutely changed a lot and new children are raised more free and careless and maybe a bit spoiled :p
    Although it is hard to compare my own experience growing up as a child to others because i was a rare one.
    Women being caretakers or not,it is about what someone wants to do and none should do something just because it is the norm and i have a big problem with new wave feminists that tell other women how they should act and feel.
    I do respect the oldstyle British intelligent feminists but some people can not differentiate between those ones and those that just hate.
    Also the male gender had power in the past but that was mostly just a select group standing above the poor,no normal men those days had any say,when people got a right to vote it was only for the richest and not for the lower earning people,so men and women couldnt vote only upper class.
    I do not know enough about gamergate,well just many conflicting things that makes me unable to decide what it actually was about,some horrible male figures are involved and on the other side you got some horrible females so yeah.

    Jaicee, why is it the only thing people do "vehemently" is deny?

    Because the term has come to feel negative. I mean I guess you could say, for example, that someone "vehemently" waited in line for a Switch, but it just sounds more right to say that they excitedly waited in line for it instead even though the two words technically mean the same thing. I vehemently await your reply!

    on 26 November 2019

    It's just so weird that this is the case.It's even Oxford's go-to in using it in a sentence. I mean you can see/hear denied used with other adverbs, but vehemently is stuck in an awful "denied" rut. :)

    on 26 November 2019

    Dunno what to tell you here.

    on 26 November 2019

    Well, if you ever come across an instance in any medium where a denial isn't vehement, please contact me immediately.

    on 26 November 2019

    Eh, I should say, where vehement is used with a word that isn't denied/denial. It's been a long day.

    on 26 November 2019

    Will do, lol.

    Good morning Jaicee.

    I hope you have a fun day today.

    What is this "good day" you speak of? Kidding. It was work. It was fine I guess. I made it through. Played a bunch of Neo Cab overnight, which was kind of interesting. How was your day?

    on 09 November 2019

    "Fun" day xP
    Mine was ok, work too, but I ended up getting sick haha.
    Well, I do hope you have a good day today, not only just fun!

Other arguments: all good, I suppose. This one though? Don't kid yourself....
