  1. Eeeyup, men are not the shit.

    Hell, I remember when I saw the poster for Knocked Up with the question of “What do you do if this man knocked you up?” on the bottom?

    And all I could think was, if I was a woman or a man given the right equipment, was after asking myself the options of emergency contraception and abortion were out of the picture… I think it involved doing something drastic instead of saddling myself with some grown man-child who somehow finds it amazing to actually act like a grown up and stuff.

    I hate those movies because it says that men, regardless of their character, and in fact if they have a poor character, deserve women like a toy in a crackerjack box, as though it’s a guarantee of life, and that said woman is gorgeous, thin, and white.

      THIS!!!!

      • Indeed that.

        I wish it was merely confined to Rom-Coms, though, it seems the rule in almost ever movie about a male protagonist, which is almost every movie. Often there will be the defense that the male in question won’t be utterly terrible, but that’s not the reason he’s obliged to get the conventional attractive woman.
