Great post. Amen. Soooo well-written.
I've been trying to say this to my gfriends for years, and it's the number one headtrip women have to get over. You must be willing to kill. It's not just protecting you, it's protecting society. Get over your societal brainwashing and stand up for yourself. If anything, your life is even MORE valuable then men's. You're the biological future of the human race; start acting like it. (If you ever want any tips, just ask. I trained under Special Forces guys who were very protective of me. And they called me Bull Dog because I don't give up. But really, your number one weapon is the decision your life is more valuable. Number two: have three strategies memorized and ready to execute so that there's no thinking needed in the moment of attack. Number three: always run when you can.).
And for my Dr. Who fanatics out there, how did I NOT get a warning that Christopher Ecclesto-however-you-spell-it plays a rapist in 28 Days Later? Christ on a crutch, you guys are worthless. I'm sitting here watching it going, "oh, now it's getting good now that He's shown up, DAMN he looks good with red hair, and in a uniform no less, wow I'm feeling a little turned o-OH MY GOD HE'S A RAPIST TOO!!!!!!"
Thanks a lot. Not only does he LOOK just like a younger, better Ralph Fiennes, but I now have the same conflicted guilt about being attracted to him (I still have cognitive dissonance over thinking ol' Ralph was hot in Schindler's List).
And what's up with Cillian being naked twice, but no Christopher twig and berries? Ahem, Mr. Boyle. Slap some more money down on that casting table, will ya? Gotta equalize this cinematic objectification thing. And now apparently I'm supposed to join some forum and analyze their body parts and how they aren't good enough for me even though they're movie stars.
Feh. F**k equality. Sounds like settling.
