WEEK #19 (9-25-11 to 10-1-11): JUDGMENT
Everyone judges every day regarding everything. Here’s the rub, we judge others by what we would do ourselves…..kinda telling isn’t it! We judge based on not only what we would do ourselves, but what we have experienced other’s to have done.
In this sense, I have passed judgment. I will not be participating in the viewing of a new “sitcom” scheduled to air tonight. Pan Am. I have judged this show and heaped in with another show I won’t watch, The Playboy Club. Without having seen anything other than the trailers, I have made my judgment. I deem these two weekly shows to be anti-feminist programs. These two shows, in my view, have been created by over stimulated, under educated, over hormone-ized young men who would throw us back to the days when women were seen as simply chattel.
In most respects, it is still a “man’s world”. If women are not diligent many men, men with power, would turn back to a time gone by. To a time when women had to have permission from their husbands or fathers to make any decision. Oh certainly, women had legal rights, however, it was up to men to enforce the laws therefore the laws were often overlooked.
They would turn to a time when women were not management. They would turn back to a time when women, in America, were seen as mindless property. Property to be used for men’s pleasure or advancement. Not only acting jobs were attained on the casting couch. I, for one, would much rather be judged for my other assets than how I look in a tight skirt and sweater.
I have judged these two “sitcoms” as less than desirable to the advancement of all minorities and women in particular. I refuse to give them my vote of confidence. Right, wrong or indifferent, this is my judgement. I am changing the channel to voice my judgment.
