The Truth is In There.

A friend of mine posted this photo of two tip jars in Hollywood. One is labelled Mulder (David Duchovny) and the other, Scully (Gillian Anderson). The customer has to decide which character to tip.

It’s a cute idea, that’s for sure.

But what struck me most (and excuse me if I sound like I’ve been binge-watching feministfrequency – because I have) was the immediate gender dividing trope of love hearts floating gaily around Scully’s head.

Because she’s just the love interest right?

Wrong.

I get it. She’s gorgeous but Scully is so much more than ‘the girl’ in this TV show.

The mystery is why we keep assigning these ‘supporting roles’ to women. Time to dig a little deeper people.

I know where my dollar’s going.

Spinny out.

 


I cannot tell you how much I dislike this image.

She’s sitting in a gold wheelchair, vacant eyes staring into nothing. Masking nothing. Saying nothing. Is it a metaphor for her crippled development or a simple cry for help?

Without a doubt I love art that is challenging but this image is patronizing, not just to people who are less able bodied but to women everywhere.

If I felt for one tiny second that this girl, who is just 18, was a creative, imaginative and passionate art lover, who was looking to push boundaries or make a statement, I think I could stomach it more. But it’s cynical and it’s attention grabbing.

This blow up doll culture needs to be put back in its box.

Get out of your gilded chair Kylie. Go to college, learn about the world, read books and fill your mind with information that nourishes. Spread your wings. Open your eyes.

Do better.

If you’re this good and this passionate about your craft, I don’t care how old you are or what gender you are, you should never stop. She’s an inspiration. End of. No argument.
