I think the “women are mysterious” thing can also come from:

1) Women actually being quite clear, but not telling men what they want to hear.  ”She said she doesn’t want to talk to me?  So many mixed messages and confusing signals!”

2) Women not having cheat codes.  ”I tried being nice, and she didn’t have sex with me.  I tried being an asshole, and she didn’t have sex with me.  Come on, there’s got to be some kind of solution to this puzzle!”

3) Women not being a hive mind.  ”First a woman told me that she likes guys with big muscles.  Then the very next day a woman told me she thinks muscles aren’t attractive at all.  Make up your mind, women!”

4) An individual woman doing something confusing, and instead of asking “why is she doing this now?” men ask “why do women always do this?”

it’s weird how men are allowed to have an eternal adolescence and play video games and computer games and get aggro about sports and play fantasy football with their friends, but women I guess at a certain age are supposed to give up all hobbies that bring them happiness except “acceptable” activities like managing their gluten-free recipe Pinterest board, taking their bratty children to see Minions, going to Zumba classes, and gossiping at PTA events. Some older women like bands, and pop culture and chatting online and things that I guess are things for “teenagers.”

oops I went on a rant

i love you?

This is wild, I spent years try to convince my cousins and one of my friends larry is real,but no matter what I’ve said,what prove I’ve showed them they just don’t want to even consider they r gay bc I’m a ‘shipper’ who shipped male movie characters But I Just showed this article to all of them and they starting to question EVERYTHING! No mattter how many times I told them they won’t believe,but put those same things in a news article then BOOM All of them start think it’s fake&he night be gay

saltygoodness:

Nothing managed to convince them but the article made them question things? 

It just goes to show how our opinions are immediately dismissed because we “ship” H&L but as soon as a seemingly unbiased male journalist says it, it becomes something non-Larries are prepared to consider and potentially agree with.

American Pie and But I’m A Cheerleader were both released in 1999.

American Pie features:

  1. A pact between four straight high school boys to have sex by any means necessary.
  2. A male character masturbating into a pie.
  3. A humorous depiction of filming a high school aged girl in a sexual situation without her knowledge or consent, and broadcasting that to the entirety of her peer group and presumably the world. This tragically results in her humiliation and deportation, which means that the male character who filmed her will not be able to have sex with her in time to fulfill the pact (which is why it is tragic). (In a subsequent installment of the American Pie series, the girl returns and is not only not angry, but still amenable to a sexual relationship with said boy.)

But I’m A Cheerleader features:

  1. A satirical depiction of a traumatic and harmful practice known as ‘reparative therapy,’ colloquially ‘degayification,’ with special attention paid to the fact that it doesn’t really work.
  2. One sex scene between female characters, not fully nude, shot mostly using close ups on the actress’ faces. Everyone is consenting, and no one has lied in order to receive consent.
  3. One female character suggested to be masturbating, not shown.

The MPAA gave American Pie an R rating, without hassle.

But I’m A Cheerleader initially received an NC-17 rating. This rating was only lowered to R (thus opening the film up to distribution) when the director agreed to cut a scene featuring the lead female character masturbating. Through her clothes. While thinking about a person, and not a pie.

Female sexual pleasure is considered not OK for teens to watch. Male sexual pleasure is

Male sexual violence is more appropriate than women’s sexual pleasure.

^^^^^^^

Watch the documentary “This Film is Not Yet Rated” for more info on this double standard! The director of “Boys Don’t Cry” talks about how she couldn’t include a female orgasm without getting an NC-17/X rating, and yet the film was able to depict rape, violence, graphic murder and homophobia/transphobia and still keep an “R” rating.

Seconding the suggestion to watch “This Film is Not Yet Rated”! It’ll change the way you think about the film industry and MPAA.
