With all the heat Anita Sarkeesian gets for her Tropes series, you’d think it was a new topic, but Gene Siskel & Roger Ebert had a discussion on a similar theme when they were talking about the influx of slasher movies on their show in 1980.
34 years later and this is STILL relevant
I used to watch Siskel and Ebert all the time. They had a lot to do with teaching me to appreciate movies - as well as shaping my stance on ethical issues like this.
It saddens me all this time has passed and not much has changed. But I am also thankful they got through to me at such a young age. To me, it’s proof that talking about important issues is worth it. Some of us will eventually get it.
