“Oh Right, Patriarchy Exists” of the Day – MPAA Edition

30 Jun

I had a very tame and mild love scene with Jon Hamm. It was like heavy breathing and making out. It was hardly a sex scene… I think that it’s great for this young girl to actually take control of her own sexuality. Well, the MPAA doesn’t like that. They don’t think a girl should ever be in control of her own sexuality because they’re from the Stone Age.

I don’t know what the fuck is going on and I will openly criticize it, happily. So essentially, they got Zack to edit the scene and make it look less like she’s into it. And Zack said he edited it down to the point where it looked like he was taking advantage of her. That’s the only way he could get a PG-13 (rating) and he said, ‘I don’t want to send that message.’ So they cut the scene!

I’m torn. I want an ‘R’ (rating) because we can get a lot of cool scenes into it, but then I like the idea of younger girls being able to see it.

Female sexuality killed the dinosaurs.  It causes global warming and earthquakes.  It never refills the ice cube tray and it gave me scabies once.

Need I even comment?

Rape culture is when it’s more acceptable to show a scene (to children no less) of a woman being sexually abused than one of a woman being appropriately and consensually sexual.

I would breathe heavily on him.  Also I’d like to say that in searching for a picture of Jon Hamm and not Don Draper I discovered that Jon Hamm looks bad sometimes.  Like really.  Bad.  Who knew?
