Why does everyone in movies have to fall in love? Even the stereotypical “loser” gets someone in the end. Like I’m all for the underdog winning but not when they have to do the whole no glasses, hair down, make-up that looks natural cause men don’t like ugly girls or girls plasted in make up things going on to “get the man”. Like how come they can’t show single women without depicting them as a “desperate” women who just wants to be loved? And like fuck can you blame these “desperate” women when women have been taught from day one how meaningless they are if they aren’t in a relationship. As if all of their contributions to the world means nothing unless the get married to Mr successful and pop out a few babies.
And don’t get me started on the fact they can’t show more diversity then the typical rich, white, straight, able-bodied couple (but I as a white, straight, able-bodied person don’t feel it’s my place tell you how shitty that would be not bring represented but from what I gather it truly fucking get sucks)
I’m just sick of movies telling people that it’s weird for a 20 year old to have never been in a relationship. Cause maybe if they hadn’t have been taught that I wouldn’t have to justify my position and choice to people. Maybe I wouldn’t have to deal with shocked looks when people find out or maybe I wouldn’t have to have a 60 year old ladie nearly fainting over the fact I’ve never had sex. Maybe I wouldn’t have every person I came across tell me I’m gonna meet some nice guy one day as if that’s gonna solve all my problems instead of make more.
