When young women are sexually assaulted, we question their pasts and critique their clothing choices, yet rarely ask their attackers to simply be accountable for having no self-control, and no respect for the humanity of the girls they’ve violated.
When middle school girls post half–naked photos of themselves on Instagram, we vilify and ostracize them as cheap and easy, while ignoring the dozens of young men who mindlessly vote their approval each time, who feed the insecurity, and who perpetuate each degrading act with the click of a mouse.
When high school girls get jobs at chain restaurants, which require them to expose their body parts to strangers over trays of nachos, we bemoan their lack of humility and class, yet never question the thousands of men who fill these eateries every day; many with daughters the same age as the ones they ogle.
When women embarrassingly writhe on poles for a few sweaty dollar bills, in dimly lit bars ironically called “Gentlemen’s Clubs”, we heap insults and judgement on them, yet let the many married men who pay both the dancers and the mortgage each month, come and go without blemish or critique.
Sooner or later, we need to stop letting boys be boys, and we need to challenge them to be men.
Sooner or later, we need to pull them out of their perpetual adolescence and into adulthood, and ask them to evenly carry the weight of sexual standards.
Sooner or later, we need to show our young men that the they can actually raise the moral temperature in sexual situations, not reflect them.
David O. Russell on Jennifer Lawrence having to work hard on The Hunger Games trilogy.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about problematic directors whose work I still admire without coming to much of a neat conclusion, but oof this has me about ready to boycott David O. Russell movies. I mean, my lord.
If it’s not all artists duty to be aware of the wider world around them, its certainly to their benefit. To make a pun out of a movie title about slavery to illustrate the physical demands made on a well-compensated actor or actress in order to star in a career launching blockbuster movie is so out of touch. To do so while knowing that one of the stars of that movie is Jennifer Lawrence’s main (and lets be real more deserved) rival in the Supporting Actress Oscar race is just mean spirited and disrespectful. To not be aware of the public discourse surrounding both Jennifer Lawrence’s persona and this particular Oscar race is just completely without savvy. But whats really mind-blowing is that he knows the remark will be controversial, but made it anyway. Though, I really don’t think he fully understands how controversial the remark comes across, nor does he really seem to care.
David O. Russell is a director who makes movies almost completely about white people, and it really seems that he has no interest in exploring humanity through his art in any way that even considers non-white people and he’s a lesser artist because of it.(via semiserious)
