Considering Geena Davis wore a see-through dress to the Emmys years ago, I don't give a flying f*ck what she has to say about the demeaning of women. Typical double standard Hollywood b*tch.
 
2013-03-05 10:05:54 AM  
Many women still don't seem to get the concept of "busting your balls". Men insult and demean each other all the time. If instead of crying you counter with something like "Go suck your mother's dick" you'll earn their respect for life.

Unless Geena's scrubbed the interwebby of her pageant career, subby's definition of hypocrite is someone who isn't an omni-present critic of everything wrong in the world.

I think the point was that Davis criticized the Oscars for demeaning women but is notably silent on beauty pageants that do nothing but objectify women.

Besides that, she follows the conventional arc for Hollywood actresses..1) leverage your good looks and sex appeal into a successful career, 2) get old and turned down for any meaningful roles, 3) turn into a feminist decrying the shallowness of Hollywood's obsession with youth and beauty.

Thanks.

I don't remember them in the Fly, although I think maybe I've only ever seen it edited for broadcast on TV.

The larger message still applies.  The time for speaking out against demeaning women is when you're young and pretty and men are throwing stuff at you.  Not when you're old, bitter and bent and no one is paying attention to you anymore.

Pissed, no.  Befuddled, yes.  To see a that level of nonsensical rant based off of nothing still surprises me.  She wears a provocative dress at an awards ceremony once, and pushes for women's rights - so she's a "typical double standard Hollywood b*tch"?  These things have nothing to do with each other.  Reminded me of:

2013-03-05 11:49:45 AM  
She's talking about the same Oscars that have to have separate categories for men & women either because A) Men are better at everything and women couldn't possibly compete with them or B) If the categories were combined it would highlight the huge disparity in the number of well-written roles for men and for women?

Also, I assume the academy's response of, "Shut up has-been, we don't care if he calls you a coont as long as ratings are up" means she will be returning her Oscar in protest.

No. I "got" it. Geena Davis is a failure for not mentioning every instance of sexism in the history of man during her commentary about the Oscars.

I just gave subby the benefit of the doubt and waited to see if there was an actual reason for tying the Miss Teen USA competition to Geena Davis before trashing the headline. But there isn't, so it's a weak sauce headline and whoever greened it should be placed on administrative leave until they learn the difference between "clever & snarky" and "Republican-style grievence whining".

As someone who wrote a rejected headline referencing Ms. Davis's boobs, I agree with the above sentiment.  They went with this?
