Well. So much for my much heralded return to blogging eh. Still, we can hope for better this week can’t we? There is always hope after all, unless you are busy dying, as whatshisface in that Stephen King film once said.
In recent weeks I’ve been adding a fair few feminist blogs to Google Reader And I think maybe they’re brain-washing me, cause every time I watch the telly lately I see nothing but the patriarchal oppression of the feminine Or some such. And it is far too much hassle. I mean, isn’t it easier to just say ah well, things are a lot better than they used to be, and so what if there is still some amount of sexism going on, isn’t it on its way out, why bother making a fuss
Tut tut. Terrible thing to think.
But you know, me = Teh Laziness.
A lot of them also make reference to racism and how under-represented POC are in films where they really should be in the majority. So when I went to see Step Up 2: The Streets the one thing that really struck me was that both the main characters were white. Sure, they had friends of different colours and races, but why were the two main ones white? Hmmmm.
Bloody political blogs making me think things. That just isn’t right.
