I almost cried when I saw this part. This is what you do. You don’t continue on your way because it doesn’t involve you.
Look at the way she shields the stranger WITH HER OWN BODY.
This is what needs to happen when you see someone being bullied or harassed.
#this is not an exaggeration okay #children do say this #children do wonder why they can’t find themselves in the media #don’t fucking tell me it doesn’t matter #it matters so much #children NEED to see themselves represented #or else they grow up feeling inferior and not worthy
the dads face breaks my heart. How hard is that to explain to your child who is like 7?
Also, the dad is a super hero, and has to resist the urge to tell his son that his father is in fact a black super hero
Evan Rachel Wood, responding to the MPAA’s double standard toward women when it censored a sex scene in her upcoming movie Charlie Countryman.
Mother Jones has the story. Actress Wood also Twitted:
After seeing the new cut of Charlie Countryman, I would like to share my disappointment with the MPAA, who thought it was necessary to censor a woman’s sexuality once again. The scene where the two main characters make “love” was altered because someone felt that seeing a man give a woman oral sex made people “uncomfortable,” but the scenes in which people are murdered by having their heads blown off remained intact and unaltered.
This is a symptom of a society that wants to shame women and put them down for enjoying sex, especially when (gasp) the man isn’t getting off as well! It’s hard for me to believe that had the roles been reversed it still would have been cut or had the female character been raped it would have been cut.
It’s time for people to grow up. Accept that women are sexual beings. Accept that some men like pleasuring women. Accept that women don’t have to just be fucked and say thank you. We are allowed and entitled to enjoy ourselves. It’s time we put our foot down.
Gay marriage 1959. Your heterosexual argument is invalid.
( Some Like It Hot, 1959.)
I’d like to point out that in the original script, the last line was supposed to be “I know”. Wilder had to change it because that was regarded as too critical.
