I fucking hate white people.
i’ve never wanted to gut a white man so badly
edit: this is the video
this rich white man complains that he’s been profiled for his (ridiculous) political views but actually defends profiling people based on religion or race… smh

“I think a lot about what makes a strong female character. You know, movies and TV shows, these things have influence, my own website. So I think the question of “What makes a strong female character?”, often goes misinterpreted. And instead we get these two-dimensional superwomen, who maybe have one quality that’s played up a lot. Like, you know, a Catwoman type, or she plays her sexuality up a lot and it’s seen as power. But they’re not strong characters who happen to be female, they’re completely flat and they’re basically cardboard characters.
The problem with this is that then people expect women to be that easy to understand, and women are mad at themselves for not being that simple. When in actuality, women are complicated. Women are multifaceted. Not because women are crazy, but because people are crazy. And women happen to be people!”

Well said, couldn’t agree more. There are ways to get out of these kinds of stereotypes as well but it requires that you understand why society has these rules in fiction and then knowing what you can do to change it without simply creating an inversion of that theme, like writing a story and then simply switching all the characters genders would be an inversion and may not work out depending on how it’s handled.
One example that was done well was that radio show guy from the Fifth Element. He was quite flamboyant but because in the future that trait is attributed to men it is not only natural and admired, but women love him. These traits are social constructs, and it doesn’t have to make sense to us right now because we could be writing the future for the next generation, and in twenty years what we think today will be considered old fashioned.
good movie very strange but then again any film that shows the future and doesn’t seem strange is wrong.
