Step into the cafeteria of a high school in 1947. Was this really the way that kids talked? And, was this really the way that high schools kids were instructed? I can't imagine that this wasn't completely laughable even back then.
Why is it that the girl who parks in cars with boys is the only one who needs a life lesson? None of the guys who accompanied her were told that taking advantage of someone is not the thing a "popular" person does. Why was that?
Now ask yourself, have things changed over the last 60 years? Hmmm. If you think so, take a look at this article about the portrayal of women in the film, The Social Network, which was released last year. I saw the film and did notice that the women were mostly heavy drinkers who were "hungry," if you know what I mean, but, I never gave it a second thought. This is how women are routinely portrayed. Good grief, have I become totally oblivious? What about you?
