It's Time To Stop Apologizing For Tina Fey - BuzzFeed News
[ more entertainment, don't make people think, don't try to make them think ... in cinema people uhhhmmmming ] But good books do not always make good movies — especially since the transformation from book to screen, at least in Hollywood’s hands, generally subtracts instead of adds nuance. [...] The most successful films are documentaries, which don’t face the inherent problem of casting actors, and white actors in particular, to play “bad guys” of different races, and high farces: films like Dr. Strangelove, M*A*S*H, and In the Loop that expand and eviscerate the inherent, if hidden, ridiculousness of modern war. [...] [ film has only ] cheap tricks, not the lacerating humor of effective farce. [...] women’s place in society, and sexual desirability as an alternately empowering and infantilizing experience. [...] The film dodges that idea, however, in favor of pitting Robbie’s character — who was created specifically for the purposes of the film — as Fey’s “competition.”

Jenny Beavan’s Oscars outfit struck a blow for all women | Laura Bates | Opinion | The Guardian
This was not the first stand taken against the reduction of women in the industry to their clothes and jewellery. The past few years have seen Elisabeth Moss give the middle finger to the “mani-cam” at the Golden Globes, Cate Blanchett demand: “Do you do that to the guys?” as a camera panned up and down her body on the red carpet, and a series of women from Reese Witherspoon to Amy Poehler demand that reporters ask them more than questions about their frocks. We’ve also seen the actress and singer Zendaya speak out about racist responses to her dreadlocks at the Oscars, and Bridesmaids star Melissa McCarthy design her own dresses after designers refused to dress her, proving that Hollywood’s incredibly narrow definition of beauty is discriminatory on the basis of size and race. [...] find themselves pitted against each other in excruciating “best dressed” and “worst dressed” lists, the awards season will continue to provide a high-profile, glossy microcosm of wider prejudice.

Interview with Rashida Jones on Her Porn Documentary 'Hot Girls Wanted' - YouTube
[ talks about little melt pot / map-over of 'pornification' of pop culture (ie music, urban, black, stripping, dancing, buts, twerks ("do you have to be able to twerk to be cool?") pics on instagram, "have to be sexy to be notices" ... "we have to differentiate between sexuality and sexualisation (ie of pop culture) "porn = peak of capitalism, commoditization of sex" [...] "WHY DOES SEXY HAS TO BE WOMEN'S ONLY CURRENCY" << and worth judged by other women and patriarchy ... "ITS LIMITING" ] "Parks and Recreation" star Rashida Jones has established a lovable reputation for herself through roles in hit comedies like "The Office" and "I Love You Man". Over the past few years, she's also ventured into writing and producing films, currently tackling projects like writing Toy Story 4. We had a chance to hang out with Rashida and talk about her shift behind the camera, and the documentary she recently produced on Miami's amateur porn industry, "Hot Girls Wanted.

BBC News - Charlotte Church attacks 'sexist' music industry
The music industry has a "culture of demeaning women" that forces stars to sell themselves as sex objects. The business is "a male dominated industry with a juvenile perspective on gender and sexuality" and increasingly wants "sex objects that appear child-like", Church claimed. [...] Sinead O'Connor wrote an open letter to the pop star, warning her not to be exploited by the music business. [...] "Short burst messaging." (Shallow Content with no Context. Cheap. Meaningless. Disappearing in the ether.) + + Look what the entertainment industry did to so many people (ie Germany Gina-Lisa Lohfink & Co + + !!! !!!

Mnner-Psychologie: Mit Luxus-Shoppingzumschnellen Sex - SPIEGEL ONLINE - Nachrichten - Wissenschaft
Was dem Pfau seine Federpracht, ist dem Mann sein Porsche - so das Fazit einer Studie von US-Psychologen. Das Auto kann dabei durch alle möglichen Luxusgüter ersetzt werden - denn Männer gehen gern teuer einkaufen, um Frauen zu beeindrucken.

University of Texas in San Antonio Studenten beiderlei Geschlechts zu einer Reihe von Tests ein. Sie sollten Geld für bestimmte Dinge ausgeben - allerdings abhängig von unterschiedlichen Szenarien, mit denen ihre Gedanken auf kurz- oder langfristige romantische Beziehungen mit attraktiven Partnern gelenkt wurden. Außerdem maßen die Forscher das grundsätzliche Interesse der Studenten an beiden Beziehungstypen mit einem Fragebogen.

Designerkleidung, exklusives Parfum oder Luxusuhren waren besonders für die männlichen Studenten interessant, die nach flüchtigen erotischen Begegnungen suchten.
