    It’s not really news that Shit is abusive, that taxi driver came out about an incident with him and Mia years ago. I didn’t realize he’d dated Twigs though.

    I like the typo so it stays.

    My thoughts exactly.
    There's a youtube channel I absolutely love "Pop Culture Detective" - the guy deconstruct how traditional masculinity is represented in media and especially movies, he's got tons of interesting videos on the most common toxic tropes.

    I became a teacher right into the Twilight franzy, and I am still so angry at how that series, targeting TEENAGERS still depicts stalking, controlling, ignoring someone's decisions, overall being a massive dick as utterly romantic.
    The dude fucking breaks into her house, climbs up her window to watch her sleep and they're not even dating and it's "super sweet" ??? HOLY FUck.
    And I'm not even going into the 50 shades bullshit.
    But anyway, I ended up using twilight as ressource material for my lessons, just to have an opportunity to tell my 15 year old students that "if this happens to you in real life, please run the fuck away"

    And people telling me "you take everything so seriously, it's just movies, switch your brains off and enjoy" ... yeah sure, let's enjoy depiction of women being abused, so entertaining!

    Ironically, the first example that comes to mind for me is the movie "The Pickup Artist", where Robert Downey Jr. plays a guy who is crazy about women and is wildly successful at getting them to go out with him. It's been many years since I saw the movie, but even then, I thought his character came across as a big freaking street pest. And guess who the director was? James Toback, who was later revealed to accost women in the street with his own unique "pickup artist" moves. It's an incredibly common trope in romantic movies that some guy continually hits on a completely uninterested woman until he "breaks her down" and "wins her heart". We should have some kind of thread called "Hollywood romantic movies, re-examined".
