    Provocative French Short Film Examines Sexism via Gender Role Reversal

    Obviously an absurdly bad day in the life of any woman, but I suppose that's the point. Made me feel distinctly uncomfortable.



    Edit: Just remembered there are breasts in the video so can mods to whatever necessary to this thread?

    women can be exceedingly cruel and disgusting as any man. More so in some cases.

    Is jogging without a shirt a normal thing for women to do in France? I thought that was supposed to be painful?

    For those who didn't give two ****s: it's the events that led up to and after a person was raped, including the negative backlash that some victims receive when they're blamed for being sexually assaulted. They shot it all with role reversal: women portraying men, men portraying women.

    I'd say it's pretty accurate in comparison to what I've experienced in my life. The role reversal draws attention to it, because if it was a woman being a woman and men being men then no one would think anything of it because it would just be ROUTINE.

    And the guys don't like it? LOL - That's funny. I wonder why. Did it make guys look like assholes? Well - many are. I'm not surprised that the guys would only comment on the breasts and dismiss the actual point (which is just proving the point that the skit presents, really).

    *Sarcastic clap*

    I'm sure a few guys from the board will step up and be serious with their responses and not playing the part of a haughty teen.

    I watched it too, and your experiences in life must be vastly different than mine. In watching it, I didn't see anything that seemed to ring true. I don't know any man who behaves as the women in that film did, nor do I know of any woman who is raped and treated like that. Perhaps it differs from city to city and culture to culture, dependent upon where one lives. But, in the end, this seemed more like a propaganda film than any sort of true social commentary.

    It was interesting to see things from this perspective.

    Clearly it's a cultural and regional thing - but thankfully it's not "everyone - all the time."
