Feb 17th 2010 11:02PM Thank you for writing this; I think about these things all the time and especially when I take ten dollars out of my wallet and throw it at the Hollywood machine.
The only female character who exists solely on her own terms and is unfazed by the movement of the menfolk around her is Ellen Ripley, followed closely by Scarlett O'Hara (yes she did have husbands, but she seemed not to really care...) and of course there's Wonder Woman/Diana Prince who is perennially shuffled aside for the Batmans and Spidermans and Hulk re-boots.
So what happens when we look up at the screen and see only prattering stereotypes whose character arc revolves around them being redeemed by the love of a man, or a wacky single neighbor, or a saintly mother? One can bark loudly about the horror of it all, I guess, or make one's own movies. But you're absolutely right, we have to stop forgiving.
Mar 4th 2007 8:00PM Hi Engadget Readers:
I am a technical and professional writing student at San Francisco State University. I'm working on a GIANT project about electronic paper for a class.
I found this thread here and I was wondering if anyone interested in this topic, who lives around the bay area, might be willing to subject themselves to a (brief) interview.
There must be someone around? I'm trying to graduate college already. I'm a nice person. I am 35 years old.
