I think it's a medium that really is built for the male gaze and for a male sensibility. I mean, the best art is made under not an indifference to, but a neutrality [toward] the kind of emotionalism that I think can be a trap for women directors


Eh, it's not inherently wrong, women do tend to gravitate towards intuition than men. Although he is wrong to state that 'the best art' is neutral towards emotionalism, that's completely subjective.



...I greatly disagree with that. He straight up said "women are too emotional to make films. Film was made for men". I really cant see how thats not sexist.

If that is what he means, then I agree that is sexist. The way I read it though was:

"Films made away from an emotional standpoint are better. (subjective) Often female directors fall victim to their emotional sensibilities more than men."

The rest of the quote for context:

But I have to get over it, you're right, because so far this year, two of my favorite movies were made by women, Fish Tank and The Runaways. I've got to start rethinking that, although I have to say that a lot of the big studio movies I saw last year that were directed by women were far worse than the sh***y big-budget studio movies that were directed by men.


It's not like he doesn't acknowledge female directors, he was just making a generalized statement about differences between the two.

when the sensitivity is too how, it hinders ur vision. when sensitivity is too low, it blocks proper judgement

Out of all possible examples, you picked a man who 1) wasn't a stand up comedian, and 2) currently runs his own network, plus a 3-hour radio program every morning. We should all be so lucky as to have our speech 'censored' like that. Nice touch on the 'certain invdividuals' though, like it was some shadowy cabal of Tumblr superstars that canceled his show and not his own network, after a large and sustained boycott made it unprofitable. Meanwhile South Park, Rush Limbaugh and a host of other deliberately scabrous and antagonistic programs remain on the air.

The idea free speech is being censored in the US is laugable. What 95% of the whining about 'PC gone mad' amounts to is shitheads upset there might be consequences for using racial slurs in public. Not that I'd expect some stupid Mick bogtrotter like you to understand.

we need a new band that lets kids channel their anger... like nirvana did


Because that worked out really well for Kurt Cobain. Seriously, if you weren't exactly cognizant (and you weren't, if you're really 27), don't comment on Nirvana. It was an age that you were not a part of and therefore, can't comprehend.

I think being PC is the "in" thing to do. There seems like an awful lot of whites people who seem to want to prove to the world that they don't have "white privilege", in some bizarre effort to demonstrate that they're tolerant. Which, if you have to try to denounce where you come from in an effort for everyone to accept you, seems like the same problem that most groups have faced.

In other words, nothing new to see here, folks. What goes around comes back around.



Huh? Kurt Cobain "angerness" wasn't the reason why he committed, so I don't know why there was a reason to bring it up.

I think it's all about timing. When there's so much real shit happening that's causing people to die for horrible reasons, it isn't really appropriate to try and turn it into a joke.

It seems like a lot of people's justification for their jokes is "it's not happening to me, so it's hilarious" which....doesn't really make it any more okay, especially with large scale shit like police brutality, racism, killing, etc.

Most of the time people don't even try to make it funny., they literally just state facts and laugh. If you're gonna make a joke, make it an actual joke you know?

I knew this big guy who got into misunderstandings on a DAILY! lmao. I could tell whenever he was about to go berserk and i'd mentally bring out the popcorn. Aah, poor guy, they excluded him from school eventually. have my pace so it's easy for me to deal with that kind of person but he pissed off a lot of people and to me, it felt like it was usually their fault.

I saw him again in 2011 and he looked skinny as fuck. Still had that energy about him though, overenthusiastic type of guy like Gon lol.

mmm nope. Why are you so salty? I was using him as an example of censorship through profit. If you cut someones profit then they will no longer be able to voice their opinions or in the case of comedians, perform their stand-up.Now that you bring up South Park, many organizations would like nothing less than to cancel the show so again my question; Is that ok? where do we draw the line when it comes to comedy?

Also, getting needlessly angry and using ad hominem is not a good way to get our point across, it just makes you sound silly.I'd appreciate it if you would be kind in my thread, this is a place for debate not flame.

It seems nothing is allowed to be joked about or the standards for whats "ok" are skewed.


Okay, enough with the abstract distractions, start spilling with the confessional details:
What joke did you make that bombed with the crowd?

They are not part of the real world anymore and live a sheltered life hiding behind screens and comments.

I once heard a very true statement: "The more someone talks about tolerance the more intolerant they are". I've found that to be very very very true.

Its really only the United States who acts like this. The rest of the world doesn't give a damn but we've brainwashed people into thinking they can't have an opinion if it isn't politically correct. Its sad and needs to die a very horrible and swift death. If you say anything now you are automatically a racist or anti-gay or something. Sad since no one is so easily placed into a general category but, hey, that's the United States these days. Wish our education system taught people how to think, instead of how to follow instructions, tweet, and how being an "individual" with everyone else in Starbucks was so cool.
