Film & TV / Re: Doctor Who Series 11 Discussion
« on: 22 October, 2018, 06:15:02 PM »

after the chat last night I got curious and decided to straight to the horses mouth and looked at the comments on the Telegraph's website.  Dear lord is that a world of entitled hate and fear! It really was quite breathtaking.

It's pretty much the same anywhere on the internet where either accounts are just throwaway, or the community size means there's little chance of encountering the same person twice.

Anyhoo...when poor Bradley discovers he's the standing white passenger, and there's nothing he can do about it...ooofft. Big, macho tears.

Far as I can tell you seem to think there is one way for all women to view and express their sexuality and everything else is pandering to the patriarchy, well? Is it?

I think that women can express their sexuality and way they want. I also think that a bloke drawing a picture of a woman for an audience of blokes is not a woman expressing her sexuality. To pretend that its somehow liberating for a male creator in a male dominated industry to take a feminist character and draw her in her pants is an gross simplification. But I'm male, so my views are pretty much irrelevant. As I've said, it would be interesting to hear the views of female boarders...unless, of course, their are hardly any, possibly because they're not drawn to this sort of representation

I was also making fun of the several false dichotomies you introduced into the argument.

Near as I can tell, the idea is that plenty of women like being portrayed as sex objects, as evidenced by there being some women who work in comics. Not portraying women in this way is sexist, slavishly following cultural norms.  Creators can do what they want with their creations, even if its entirely counter to the original concept and the view s of co-creators.  And if you don't like women being set free in this way, that's just like the people who think women shouldn't be involved in DrWho, and you just should buy the art, just like they shouldn't watch the show. Also, you probably think that all Ian Gibson art should be pulped. Is that what you want? Well? Is it?!

Maybe we could ask some of the many women who post on this forum...

The participation of women in the industry is not helped by overtly sexualized imagery produced by men, for men.  When women are producing art in to express their own sexuality they rarely paint women on their knees.

I have never met an Irish person as interested in shamrocks as every Irish person who meets Trump appears to be.

Just because I will promote this man's reviews at every opportunity...

I got into Stardew Valley after reading Paul Dean's review which compares the game's farming and building relationships with real world work, trying to become a writer, and how desperately sad life can be when the only entertainment in town is a pub.
