An Arrow Conversation...

  • Me: I hope that Thea becomes a great 'Mia Dearden!'
  • IGN fan: Oh, so you hope she gets HIV!
  • Me: I believe that Willa Holland can provide a believable representation of an HIV+ charater, which is important! Why not have an HIV+ character on TV?

While I still think the ‘Name Game’ section of American Horror Story is the only interesting part of the series….

by simply highlighting Shirley Ellis’s name, but not actually representing a single black person, the show erases the origins of the song and a great deal of the point of the song.

Even the only part I thought was remotely interesting in American Horror Story is horrific.

I just really want to write for Arrow.

Like.  I have an idea for my favorite Green Arrow villain.

What if I write that spec script and then just SHOW UP AT THEIR DOORSTEP!?

There has only been five female characters comfirmed playable compared to fifteen male characters.

I’m amazed at those exact numbers because 33% is the point where men will start thinking there’s a majority of women in a group.

Ewwww.

From the linked article: “But lest people think that it’s all bad news, we were able to see an increase in the percentage of female characters in family films such that, if we add female characters at the rate we have been for the past 20 years, we will achieve parity in 700 years.

And

DAVIS: My theory is that since all anybody has seen, when they are growing up, is this big imbalance - that the movies that they’ve watched are about, let’s say, 5 to 1, as far as female presence is concerned - that’s what starts to look normal. And let’s think about - in different segments of society, 17 percent of cardiac surgeons are women; 17 percent of tenured professors are women. It just goes on and on. And isn’t that strange that that’s also the percentage of women in crowd scenes in movies? What if we’re actually training people to see that ratio as normal so that when you’re an adult, you don’t notice?

LYDEN: I wonder what the impact is of all of this lack of female representation.

DAVIS: We just heard a fascinating and disturbing study, where they looked at the ratio of men and women in groups. And they found that if there’s 17 percent women, the men in the group think it’s 50-50. And if there’s 33 percent women, the men perceive that as there being more women in the room than men.

As much as I hate the show….

The “Name Game” dance number is actually brilliant.
