I don’t usually understand most people who float in message boards anyways, but I really don’t understand those who swamp the IMDB message boards to preach that this movie is ‘smut’ and no self-respecting woman would see this film, that women should act like women, blah blah BLAH. Who defines how women should act? HOW does one even define a WHOLE POPULATION OF PEOPLE and tell them to act the same way? No. Just no.
And I say this as someone who saw the movie and felt incredibly uncomfortable the whole time. While it wasn’t my cup of tea, admittedly it bugs the piss out of me that it is that big of a deal if someone sees the movie, that it redefines their character, and that you feel the need to post on boards so everyone knows that’s your opinion (and someone it’s the only right one.)
I know women who would enjoy this movie. I know women who would rather sit at home and read Wuthering Heights. And I know women who would do both (HOW ‘BOUT THEM APPLES?)
Judging: not cool since
Recently in America we are always discussing the epidemic of obesity, especially in children. We start new initiatives to get kids moving and playing and eating right.
Of course these are great efforts, but what I don’t understand is why we don’t spend the same amount of focus on the emotional issues behind weight gain. Why someone eats the way they do is just as important as what they’re eating. You can make them play ball and feed them organic fruit, but they’ll still be a broken person inside.
