Apologies, but I need to have a bit of a rant.

I’ve been watching a lot of movies lately - more so than I have in a while - and I’m starting to notice a really disturbing and frankly frightening trend. A film I watched last night had several female characters surrounding a main male character. Nothing new. Some of them were older women in their 30s. Some in their 20s. All presented as “attractive” to the main character and therefore the audience. What they had in common: thin, long body types. Big eyes. Tiny noses. Straight hair. The main female character - the girlfriend - was almost presented as a caricature. She was demure, cute. Put up with the antics of the male protagonist. Impossibly beautiful. And in the end, despite sleeping with a host of other women, he marries her.

In almost every movie I have watched lately, the kind of girl that gets the guy or is presented as attractive is so impossibly foreign to me that I almost feel like I should hate myself. Which is absolutely ridiculous - yet how could I or any other girl I know live up to it? All of the men in these movies are so varied in physical nature, in body type, in personality. The women at least are sometimes intelligent, out spoken and have brilliant careers of their own. But they have to be attractive in a wholly feminine and cute way first.

I am finding it more and more frustrating that all we are seeing is a regurgitation of the same woman over and over. She is in the music videos, she is on the album covers hand in hand with the musician, she is on the ads on tv and in the magazines. I’m sure she’s a really nice girl and I think she’s gorgeous too, but we are teaching an entire generation that she’s the only thing they should ever need or want to be. It’s so fucking damaging that I want to scream.

I walked past an ad for a new Nike store today. There were a line of people jogging towards the camera, looking appropriately fierce in their Nike gear. I was pleasantly surprised to see a variation in skin colour. Nice one Nike. And yet every single body type was the same.

You can look at the photos I take of myself and think that I have it pretty good - which I do to an extent. I know I am tall, slim. But I also hated myself up until about two years ago, thought my thighs were a curse because they jiggle and touch and my hips were bigger than my boobs, that my face was too long and I was never going to be “pretty”. I know girls in real life who fit the standard that we’re apparently supposed live up to and I used to constantly compare myself and beat myself up. Eventually I got sick of my own bullshit and decided that fuck, I was going to wear whatever I damn well pleased and work the hell out of the cool things about me like my long legs and big hair.

But I still get insecure as all fuck when that little reminder of that woman pops up.

I’m really angry that we all have to deal with this and nobody is doing anything to stop it. I see other women on tumblr perpetuating it to the point where I’ve had to unfollow some people for catering to this unachievable ideal. It’s not okay and I’m so absolutely bone fuck tired of it.

hmmm… confused.



I’m putting this under a read more, because I know people don’t like talking about Laurel in the Olicity tag, but this is the only way to actually have discussions in the Arrow fandom apparently, because tagging Laurel when you’re not praising her pisses people off. I also don’t want to tag it as anti-Laurel, because it’s not hate post. I went into that tag yesterday, and I didn’t like what I saw. I am not of the same opinion as most of the posters in there, so I’d rather post in a place where I’ll get sensible feedback.

Anyway, I know I said I was done talking about Laurel/Katie, but it’s hard not too, because she is in the show. Whether her character makes sense right now or not, Katie plays a lead character, so discussing her has to happen.

I don’t actually have the answer you are seeking, since I hold the same view point as you; but I can never resist anybody wanting to have an earnest discussion about Arrow, and just earlier today I was contemplating the exact same fact as you. I’m going to type it up as my own two cents on the topic, I hope you don’t mind.

FILLED UNDER: Arrowsquee;  I love those;  everything is accurate;  no hate;  just the stupid facts;  I wish some people (more like Laurel fans) could understand that;  and stop saying we're bitching about Laurel;  because we're just stating the facts;  I just want her to have something to do on the show;  like her own storyline but somehow in sync with the main plot;  ????;  if not;  she can go;  because putting her here and there;  and forcing her on us because she's supposedly the love of Oliver's life;  is just friggin irritating;  and pointless???;  and Katie needs to watch the show because wow lady you're so out of it??;
