@KittyKatz:  I wonder if those same guys posted comments on the movie striptease or any other similar and went on about how those woman are being objectified. haha 

They are just jealous. I am watching it with my girlfriends but my hubby is a bit annoyed but wont say so. hehe

I guess I feel that I wouldn’t be comfortable with my man seeing a movie about female strippers so I would respect him in the same way. Although I’ll admit it’s taken me awhile to come to this. I definitely drooooled in the theatre at the trailer ๐Ÿ™‚

I just saw this movie today.. hehe.

My fiance doesn’t care that I wanted to go and that I went.  He even offered to go with me if I couldn’t find a girlfriend who was able to go.  Honestly… men might be able to learn some moves if they go watch it Wink

Although I haven’t talked to him about Magic Mike, that’s how my Darling Husband feels about male strippers in general…but he feels exactly the same way about female strippers, so no double standard there.

But he would be so stupid as to think that the movie means that all women only want rich men with perfect bodies, anymore than he would say that every other movie on earth means that men only want women with perfect bodies!  Oy.

The people posting on that website are probably just assholes who can’t get laid. ๐Ÿ™‚

@KittyKatz:  I completely agree with what you said.

 

I probably will see the movie but once it comes out on dvd, I’m too cheap. Fiance and I already plan on renting and watching it together haha. When it first came out I joked about taking him, and he was down.

Um wow what a double standard! I’ve been looking forward to seeing this movie ever since the trailer was released- I’m more then happy to spend a few hours drooling! lol! However Fiance said he won’t be coming to watch it with me at the cinemas because it doesnt appeal to him, but if its a movie i enjoy i plan to get the dvd and make him watch it then – he makes me watch plenty of his boy movies so i think it makes it fair ๐Ÿ™‚

and I also lol’d at the angelina jolie comment!

I think I posted this somewhere else but I feel like in every R rated movie I have seen, there is at least one female butt naked and all I get is a shirtless George Clooney. I can’t wait to see this movie! Going on Tuesday for a gno!

@KittyKatz:  PREACH IT, SISTAH!!!! ::jazz hands:: 

I’ve been saying this since I saw the preview for it. Thank the almighty!!! Finally, finally, finally, a leveled playing field is on the horizon. As a woman, I have been horrified for ages at the way women are portrayed in films. It’s about time marketers paid attention to us as valid human beings, and not play things. Turn the tables on the men, have them be appalled, and maybe some things will change.

Seriously? Those guys can go cry me a river and hop aboard the SS Get Over It because women have been objectified for as long as I can remember.

Do they have a right to be upset? Sure, but maybe now they might understand what it feels like to only be judged by your looks and how uncomfortable it makes women feel to be reduced to a few physical characteristics without being regarded for integrity or ambition.

I whole heartedly believe it is in our biology to judge other people and whether or not we find them attractive, but using that as a level of worth is something we made up ourselves.
