(in reference to situations, connections, and overall life circumstances)
“what if?” is the mental manifestation of a shield we have learned to carry and hold up when we are reminded of our experiences. “what if?” is the shield we use to protect ourselves and it is important to have one of those shields.
but, “WHAT IF” everything you are experiencing and feeling that is good is happening so that a really good outcome will come about; “WHAT IF” instead of shielding and deflecting we use our experiences our truths our pain and fears and turn that shit into a love gun that shoots good love.
we take it in and transform it into something useful, every time. what if the good things you are experiencing are real, and what if its really good.
What we found was that in G-rated movies, for every one female character, there were three male characters. If it was a group scene, it would change to five to one, male to female.
Of the female characters that existed, the majority are highly stereotyped and/or hypersexualized. To me, the most disturbing thing was that the female characters in G-rated movies wear the same amount of sexually revealing clothing as the female characters in R-rated movies.
And then we looked at aspirations and occupations and things like that. Pretty much the only aspiration for female characters was finding romance, whereas there are practically no male characters whose ultimate goal is finding romance. The No. 1 occupation was royalty. Nice gig, if you can get it. And we found that the majority of female characters in animated movies have a body type that can’t exist in real life. So, the question you can think of from all this is: What message are we sending to kids?
