Have you noticed it? It's pretty goddamn distressing. Sitting down to enjoy a nice popcorn flick only to be assaulted by all that...skin. I mean, think about. Really think about it. Think about an entire gender being reduced to bare curves. Is that all they are to you? A collection of fleshy bits? Shouldn't we expect more in this day and age? Haven't we, shouldn't we, rise above this? I'm just plain tired of Hollywood shoving chests in our faces as if we were not better than gibbering monkeys. I am sickened. I am appalled.

Listen, Hollywood, snap out of it. Get your sh*t together. Do you really, honestly think so little of the opposite sex? Do you think they're so enfeebled and have so few assets to offer that they have to take their shirts off in order for us to pay attention to them? Well you're wrong. Damn wrong. I expect better of you. NAY, I demand better of you. Shape up, Hollywood. Or we're through. You disagree? You don't think it's that bad? Well here's just some of the most recent, egregious examples of the marginalization of an entire gender. For shame, Hollywood. For shame.

Joanna Robinson is absolutely repulsed.





Pajiba Love Express
Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
