    So, this is the "all men are this way" kind of thing? Lovely, just what the world needs. There is inequality, sure, but to refer to men in a way that implies all men is pretty goddamn ridiculous. This is the problem with far-out feminism. The core of what feminism represents is fine and is what fueled the changes that were made, but at this point half of what people like this argue is asinine. Seems to me that she is part of the problem rather than part of the solution.

    Is she really mad that HOLLYWOOD isn't fair? Like that wasn't already obvious?? You chose that line of work

    Just sounds like nonsense to me. If we are talking about the film industry it's a lack of interest and a lack of talent. More men go on to write scripts and produce/direct movies because they have a history in doing it and have worked hard to accomplish their goals. The women that have actually made it in the film industry are there because of hard work and determination, the problem is that most people don't realize going into acting and directing just how hard it is and end up giving up part way through. The men who go into acting classes and drama and stuff don't give up because they actually really were interested in doing it, especially when you realize that those guys are made fun of by their friends and peers for picking something like acting for a career.

    Maybe the lack of women in the production side of film-making is just because women don't want that job???

    Oh please. More men go to film school than women do. More men get into a writing for movies, directing, and producing than women do. The odds are simply a mathematical certainty that more men will work in that particular field because there are more men applying for those positions. This whole bullshit, "I'm a woman living in a man's world", "I'm a victim help me", "it's not fair and it's just a cruel world", nonsense has got to stop. Just fucking stop and look at all the statistics and data that actually exists and then maybe you'll have a better understanding of what reality is.

    If you want more women-written/directed films, then more women need to write/direct films. Just because there's a disparity in the numbers doesn't mean there's some barrier that's creating it. If you can show me proof that women are actively shut out of writer/director roles that's different. And I don't mean a stat like "only 1/10 movies is female written" you need proof that females are actively shut out, not just that they participate less

    So many butt hurt people/people who weren't listening. She flat out said more women need to write and direct and show off their talents. She didn't say anything hateful about men. Honestly, she was even very respectful in the way she discussed Trump. Why is this striking a nerve for some of y'all? 🤔
