I appreciate a good commercial. I do. As a former marketer I admire how GoldieBlox has so successfully tapped into the desire for parents of girls (and, I think for grown women) to see toy manufacturers create products other than dolls or princess crap.

But before everyone runs away with…

I love this new trend of actresses calling reporters out on their bullshit.

Can I just, Renner’s face is the second and third frames. He’s so disappointe in the male race at that moment. And so proud of Scarlett.

Scarlett Johansen, you are badass.

Tumbling over the past year and a half has made me see the problems of gender roles that exist in media, but sometimes it gets to the point where I over analyze every single piece of television or film that I come across. (However this in no way means that I think feminist media criticism is wrong, or should be avoided!) Mostly I just over think everything.

I’ve thought about this a lot and I think the answer is MORE, and MORE DIVERSE female characters.

We’re used to having one or two female characters in a cast of mostly men, and hold them to a higher standard because of that. So all of feminism is resting on the shoulders of one female character - and that DOESN’T WORK. Because there isn’t one right way to be a woman.

If casts had more diversity of gender, we could have warrior women and non-warrior women, sexual women and non-sexual women, feminine and non-feminine, and mixtures of all of the above…all are completely legitimate ways to be a woman.

Happy Galentine’s Day from Pawnee, IN (via shortbreadsh):

Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick-it, breakfast style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like the Lilith Fair. Minus the angst. Plus frittatas.

It should be a national holiday.

Where Are All the Video Game Heroines?

It’s the second installment of my new column at Movies.com exploring the intersection of video games and movies. This week: movies are getting down with girls and guns, so why aren’t there more video games following suit? Name-checking Lara Croft, Samus Aran, and Alice Liddell of the upcoming game, “Alice: Madness Returns.” I’ve been waiting 11 years for it!
