The alternative viewpoint is much more intelligent.
What I really don’t get about Emma Wood’s article is how can she really call herself a feminist? Feminists are fighting for female rights, for equal rights among females and males. So why then does she complain when women aren’t treated like the mentally challenged? Is she trying to insinuate that women are mentally and physically weaker than men, so therefore require special treatment? That’s fucking ridiculous, because they aren’t. The reason they don’t think anything of men getting shot or murdered in film is because they are still thinking of women as somehow vulnerable or as victims. Why? Isn’t their point that women are just as strong and smart as men?
They’re almost acting as if women SHOULD be portrayed as weak and submissive. It’s strange.
[quote]Meh, I wasn’t massively keen with Death Proof anyways after re-watching it yet again. I loved Kill Bill, where the lead character was a women, same with JB, but I really just couldn’t stand the feminist ending of DP.[/quote]
Why is it a feminist ending? Just because women ending up winning in the end? Please elaborate, because it comes off as a very close minded statement, and I’m sure you didn’t mean it that way.
