I HATE the whole ‘guy likes girl, girl obviously isn’t interested in guy, guy continues to harass girl until she force-ably likes him’ THING that seems to happen in shows, movies, etc.
It makes me extremely uncomfortable.
Like being female makes you an object with no mind for your own choices. An object to be obtained. And all a guy has to do is constantly chase after you, wear you down, until you give in.
I hate that the moment a female character is introduced- they are immediately thrown into the role of romantic interest.
I’m sitting here, watching Planes, a Disney movie, trying to perk up my winter blues- and the FIRST FEMALE CHARACTER THAT SHOWS UP- SHE’S A GODAMN HIPPIE WHO FLIRTS UP THE MAIN CHARACTER. Second female- LOVE INTEREST FOR ANOTHER PLANE.
GODAMN PLANES. ROMANCE. MALE PLANE FORCING A GIRL TO LIKE HIM WITH PERSISTENCE- WON’T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER. I- WUT-
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m female, and romance is great and all… But when I meet a person of the opposite gender I don’t immediately size them up for boyfriend material.
I am godamn sick and tired of this stereo type/ trope.
I wish movie and tv series makers would suddenly realize- females are just regular people. We eat, fart, sleep, poop, burp, breath oxygen- just like the male gender.
I am so very uncomfortable with the portrayal of females in the media- you have no idea.
