Is it me…or has there been a sudden surge of women beating up men in various tv shows…movies…etc? Alias comes to mind…and last night, I saw a Law and Order rerun where the female main character kicks the living…out of the guy she arrested, while she is interrogating him. I also notice how men are put down in commercials, made to look stupid and sniveling. I don’t think either sex needs to be beating each other up, and this shouldn’t be considered entertaining. If it were a man beating up a woman – women’s rights groups would be up in arms. I just think that something is grossly wrong here…when did women beating up men become entertainment? When did making men look stupid, and lazy become entertainment? (ie: Everyone Loves Raymond, etc…) A commercial comes to mind, where a woman is angry with her husband…and the next time you see him–he has a black eye…from his wife??? (can’t think of the product being advertised, but it’s a popular commercial)
Just makes me wonder…why is this happening? And is this some perverse way that the media feels women *should *be portrayed? Granted, there are lots of good shows on tv…but there is plenty of this junk.
