This is true. I saw a documentary about it. Men’s orgasm faces are allowed in teenage comedies rated PG13, but women’s orgasm faces can often push it into NC-17 territory, no joke. [x]
This is pretty much the equation:
women receiving abuse = PG-13/R
women receiving pleasure = R/NC-17
there is a whole documentary about women vs men and sex vs violence and film ratings. i recommend it
The Documentary is called “This Film Is Not Yet Rated”
ok but this ho has made more trans jokes on her show than any character on any other sitcom other than maybe neil patrick harris on how I met your mother so maybe try again and get someone who doesn’t only care about cis girls to make this statement
^^^^^I never reblog this because I feel exactly like that. But now this commentary is here and I’m like Yeah.
[I absolutely love the documentary in question, so if there are any responses to these questions please put them in my ask box so as to not to distract from This Film is Not Yet Rated]
Is Kat Dennings preforming jokes written for a show she’s on her fault? Or would the fault lie in the showrunner, writers, and production studios that okayed and perpetuate the thought as funny before she ever even read it? Or is it both, since she as a performer could refuse to do such “jokes”?

John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats joins Fresh Air to talk about his new novel, Wolf in White Van, his dark adolescence, and the best part of his job:
"I hang out and sign records for an hour or two hours every night and I like to hear as many people’s stories as I can, because if somebody wants to share their story with me, I want to honor that. … But if you’re hearing a bunch of [stories], it gets very intense. It’s a lot.
I feel a duty. … I really think there’s a lot of music you can use to heal and save yourself. It’s not like I have some magic power and I reached inside somebody and said, “Oh, you didn’t know this about yourself until I wrote this song.” That’s not true. What I did is I made a thing, and somebody who needed to find something found mine and chose to meet me out on that ground.
It’s this area of communication that is unique to music, I think. That’s a choice that the listener makes to share that part of themselves with the artist who hopefully shared part of himself. … It’s very intense to have those sorts of conversations, have people sharing stuff that may be a secret, but I try to be worthy of it. It’s an honor. I’ve worked a lot of jobs — this is the best one.”

Well…talk about a glamour shot.
[I fully respect the time and work put into this, and I’m no artists so I could do nothing like the caliber, so I just wanted to say that before I say…]
Something about this picture is creeping me out so hard.
