The lady's not for turning: cinematic portrayals of lesbians need to get real | Film | The Guardian
predatory trope ( a significant or recurrent theme) // "The age difference is stark, but beyond this, the narrative of lesbian conversion is there in all its problematic glory, throwing up questions about sexual identity and coercion. Not only by using an uncomfortable stereotype about predatory lesbians, but also by treating sexual identity as if it were a taste in food: here, try the asparagus; if you eat it enough you might like it. [...] Indeed, the conversion trope itself is probably a response to the difficulty in depicting real lesbian relationships – they have to be couched in stereotypical terms for mainstream audiences to connect with. [...] The recurrence of the cliche is one that will hopefully disappear as being public about your queer identity becomes easier, and we begin to recognise that lesbian women can have boring, conventional love stories just like anyone else."

What last night’s “The Newsroom” gets wrong about “disruption” in media | PandoDaily
This has become a common theme in Hollywood and television’s depiction of Silicon Valley. Tech entrepreneurs, especially on HBO’s popular series “Silicon Valley,” are often portrayed as awkward losers who lucked into a billion dollar payday simply because they stayed inside playing computer games as kids instead of riding their bikes. It’s as if society still hasn’t graduated from its 1980s “Revenge of the Nerds” mentality. But while there’s truth to every cliche, the act of turning these rich kids into objects of ridicule glosses over the well of sociopathic greed they drew on to make their companies so successful in the first place. Sure, some tech founders are lovable geeks. But the capacity for evil is just as large in Silicon Valley as it is in any other corporate environment. ... [ to the point, that Unterhaltungsfernsehen = menschenverachtend. ]

Jill Abramson was everything to young women at the New York Times.
The media called her “brusque” and  “polarizing.” But to young women at the New York Times, Jill Abramson was everything. [...] The mark Abramson made on her female employees wasn’t just a matter of optics. Abramson was committed to increasing women’s representation at the paper, and she got results. || + http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor/2014/05/15/jill_abramson_fired_from_the_new_york_times_here_s_why_it_stings.html + http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2014/05/19/313941751/fired-new-york-times-editor-losing-a-job-you-love-hurts + http://thinkprogress.org/culture/2014/05/16/3438585/jill-abramson-and-nora-ephron-its-personal/ ""Understand: every attack on Hillary Clinton for not knowing her place is an attack on you."" + http://commonhealth.wbur.org/2014/05/jill-abramson-grads-fungible

Dear Jill: From One Pushy Media Dame to Another | Re/code
+ This has been a common theme in the coverage of the Abramson debacle — how different behavioral standards are applied to men and women, how strongly confident women get turned into waspish shrews, while men become commanding figures of authority. That’s the cliché, of course, but it does not make it any less true. || ++ http://www.theguardian.com/media/2014/may/18/arthur-sulzberger-jill-abramson-new-york-times || ++ http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2014/05/19/313941751/fired-new-york-times-editor-losing-a-job-you-love-hurts + http://www.theguardian.com/media/2014/may/18/arthur-sulzberger-jill-abramson-new-york-times
