new wave feminism

A quasi-academic look at Feminism, politics & race relations through the lens of a 20-something year old Nigerian American who was born & raised up in the (still) segregated south but has relocated to the "liberal" yet historic & traditional north.
This blog is my space for an interdisciplinary examination of race, gender, class, sexuality - all things intersectional & multi-dimensional.
Feminism the way I see it...

Video of the week: Hollywood & Homophobia.

I love infomania. And i love this clip of their segment: That’s Gay!

Description:

When Hollywood needs a villain, they always go straight for the gays. Bryan Safi uncovers the terrifying truth of movies of the last 100 years: from “Psycho” and “The Maltese Falcon” to more recent blockbusters like “300” and “Braveheart”—and even Disney film villains like Scar in “The Lion King”—we have all been taught from a very early age to fear the Foppish Menace.

I love this video because it shows how extensively men are socialized to be macho. They are taught that even the slightest hint of femininity isĀ vilifiedĀ and seen as foul. All images of genderbending are associated with perversion and evil. Oh don’t we love how we are indoctrinated with gender roles?
