I’ve been thinking about starting a list on site of producers and writers who have committed particularly grievous offenses against female characters. Stick a link to it in the margin, and you guys would be able to suggest new additions in the comment field. Does this sound like fun?
I’m just getting fed up. The more I look around, the worse it seems to get. It’s subtle, but that makes it even worse, because that means it’s so ingrained in the culture, and we’re so inured to it that we’re not even aware of it anymore.
And I’m not talking about producers who fail to make their central characters women, or anything so petty. I’m talking about producers who might as well be deliberately deconstructing women to make the point that women can’t function without men. That attitude exists in our society, and it doesn’t need any reinforcement.
Let me know if you think this would be cool.
