Gender Inequality when it comes to photographing male and female actors? Ya think, Hub? When the press finally hits upon the obvious…it’s still oblivious.

Oh dear, you mean actresses are photographed half-naked while their male costars are dressed dignified, Hub?

You just realized this now?


And that the boys all have wrinkles and are older than the dolled up female?

You didn’t notice that, though. That requires two thoughts.

And that game has gone on for at least for as long as I have been alive:


And the only reason we even have an article like that is because some people on Twitter complained, though the actress thought critics should “get a grip” that women can only get publicity being undressed amid fully-clothed male colleagues. Had she been an actress who always wore jeans and a sweater, she wouldn’t be hitting Slap Chops on informercials.

It is not as if journalists or editors see these things themselves.

Because they are the ones putting out the dreck in the first place.

Nice try.
