Oftentimes it can be difficult to understand an identity you aren’t apart of, and it can be hard to relate with the everyday things other identities have to put up with. Women, for instance, are subject to a great number of shallow stereotypes in their TV and movie portrayals.
After seeing the new “Ghostbusters” movie, this woman managed to help a guy understand a few things about the female experience.
The guy didn’t understand how women were forced to constantly see their gender relegated to pointless “eye candy” roles on television and TV. He didn’t understand that this was something females deal with constantly. He didn’t understand that, but I think now he does!
