On 'Bridesmaids': Am I Doing Being A Woman Wrong?

@dialuna The Real World. I've worked in this world for over 40 years from brown to blue to white collar and can only say that of course there is discrimination, however; most long range work I've done e.g. Human Services, has always had a mixed bag that worked if the people did. Certainly 'Attractive People' may at time require more upkeep and strokes but usually they can be tolerated and if they prove to be more than a pretty face who have gotten too many breaks, kept around.

@cherrispryte Thank you for that it has always been a bone of contention with me that all my fat beer drinking school mates thought they were fine the way they were but women had to be '11's or they were fair game for badmouthing. I have said how I feel below, but you pretty much made a clear point which can't be argued with IMHO. Thanks again.

@Clemenko Sorry did you read her as dismissing the test by pointing out that the movie didn't really live up to it? That was her point you know, it really didn't. The test is this:
1. It has to have at least two women in it
2. Who talk to each other
3. About something besides a man

it didn't live up to the third point. And yes this is a problem which harkens back to WW2...men expect women to be waiting for or seeking out a mate/male. So what's in the misreading? Even you end your comment with the same point of expectation...you make the argument complete. Thank you.

@dialuna I'm not sure where you live but personally I haven't time for this sort and if this is how you go about life I probably wouldn't have time for your superficiality either. This is the sort of behavior which should be gotten rid of by the end of high school at the latest. If not some serious therapy needs to be considered. Sorry but no, this is not REAL LIFE. At least not for anyone I know.

Having lived a great number of years around 'imperfect' people I find what you say and how you said it to be so damn on the mark I must congratulate you. I was raised with the 'good ole boy' mentality of the South and this film positively reeks of that ilk. The sad part to me is how your sex is letting it wink and nod them into submission...again. Why can't people wake up and smell the BS!! This is only another male orientated feel good because 'we GAVE the GIRLS another movie about themselves' piece of crap which will inevitability be used a ammo when a real Womans' movie comes along in need of money. "Oh we can't do that we just made you a movie last year sweetheart, you'll have to wait." I wish this feeling of being alone on a beach with a bunch of sea gulls would go away. But it's been there so long now I'm beginning to believe I can understand them sometimes, sad.
