Do you ever hate how women are portrayed on TV Arielle Scarcella? It pisses me off sometimes. I mean not going to lie it makes for a better movie yes. But what's with the instant panic where she's all sobbing and is hysterical while uttering oh my God? Girls will fight you man what hell? Or wearing heals while running down stairs in a horror movie, I mean really, why? Sometimes I hate it how easy it looks to pick up girls in movies, like I can't even get girls to talk to me, how's a guy supposed to hold a 2 minute conversation about what neither person wants to talk about about then, boom, like magic, she's leaving with him, I wouldn't even do that? I watched maleficent 2 today, it makes you wonder, when they're going to the dinner and crossing the river with a bridge made of roots, were they wearing heals?
In the first place movies are fictional and or fictionalized renditions of real life stories. Movies are purpose designed to be entertaining. Go figure.
Movies portray women in every possible way. Some female characters are gorgeous and able to run stairs while wearing stiletto heels. Go figure.
The thing is that movies portray the basic and real dynamic between men and women. Generally speaking men are bigger, physically stronger and can take a punch in the face. Conversely women are smaller, not as strong as men and fold and collapse to the floor in tears the instant someone punches them in the face.
Sure women "will fight you man" - just as you say. But the fact is that a given man of average strength can easily overpower almost any woman. It takes an exceptionally strong athletic and well trained female to overpower an average male. Truth!
The dynamic of the man/woman relationship is that the woman needs and seeks security and safety. The man pursues physically attractive females. Ultimately the female either accepts or rejects a given male based upon her personally prioritized list of attributes in a man.
Who would bother to sit through a movie where the women are unattractive, the men are weak Betas and - well, nobody would want to do that. We go to movies to be entertained. We want to see attractive females and strong men. We want to see the male characters vanquish the evil bad guys and to see him rescue the female. We experience it vicariously. Sitting in a theater seat we let our imaginations run with the movie. We imagine that WE are the characters on the screen and for a little less than 2 hours we get to enjoy the thrill of seeing ourselves being the hero and the rescued damsel...Truth!
