I’d like to be an optimist about the whole debacle that is gender relations. We may struggle under thousands of years’ worth of sexist principles, but with a little effort to learn things might get better eventually. In some ways, they already have, but it’s easy to look at certain areas of life and feel like we never made any progress at all. One of the main culprits for this is art, specifically men writing about women. Never mind the fact that the female gender have whole internal worlds to explore in text, have you heard that most girls have boobs? While men writing terribly about the so-called fairer sex might be a damning indictment of what they think about them, there’s no denying that this can sometimes have some pretty funny results.
