I'm sorry but your Scott pilgrim vs. The world post made me want to punch myself in the face. Like yeah the movie is pretty sexiest but the point of it was to be like a video game and totally unrealistic. You saying "all lesbians have them" about the 'sexy weakness' was stupid because everyone has their weak spots that turn them on. I know it was posted two years ago but I found it on google so yeah.
1. You can go right ahead. 2. Ok, but MY point was that it’s sexist, so I guess we agree? 3. Regardless of whether or not “everyone has their weak spots” (no), it doesn’t change the fact that making the sole female ex and the only lesbian defeated by orgasm is ridiculous and sexist. 4. What is your point exactly?
Many of my movies have strong female leads - brave, self-sufficient girls that don’t think twice about fighting for what they believe in with all their heart. They’ll need a friend, or a supporter, but never a savior. Any woman is just as capable of being a hero as any man.
The Academy Awards voter breakdown, aka why WoC still almost never win Oscars
Oscar voters are nearly 94% Caucasian and 77% male, Blacks are about 2% of the academy, and Latinos are less than 2%.
Oscar voters have a median age of 62. People younger than 50 constitute just 14% of the membership.
Most of the academy’s 15 branches are almost exclusively white and male. Caucasians currently make up 90% or more of every academy branch except actors, whose roster is 88% white. The academy’s executive branch is 98% white, as is its writers branch.
Men compose more than 90% of five branches, including cinematography and visual effects. Of the academy’s 43-member board of governors, six are women; public relations executive Cheryl Boone Isaacs is the sole person of color.
The academy began making public the names of its invitees in 2004, but does not say which ones accept and become members.
The more than 1,000 people invited to join since 2004 include black actors such as Jennifer Hudson, Mo’Nique and Jeffrey Wright. But overall, the group was only slightly more diverse than the academy it was joining — 89% white and 73% male. In 2011, the invitees were 30% female and 10% nonwhite.
The academy’s overall composition before and after the 2004 policy shift remained close to 93% Caucasian and 76% male, and its median age dropped from 64 to 62.
A strong female character isn't simply a character that possesses both physical strength and a vagina. She can have one, or both, or neither. However, she must be interesting, and well rounded, rather than a dated archetypal placeholder with no personality or aspirations of her own. Giving a woman a gun and a pair of stilettos does not transform her into a strong female character, it just places her in a different category of trope. Unfortunately, it seems Hollywood and other media decision-makers are having trouble grasping this concept. Let me help you out, boys: THESE ARE STRONG FEMALE CHARACTERS.
