HOW DOES SHE DO IT?!?!
I'm so tired of seeing this shit on screen.
- •Opening sequences showing a woman arriving at/walking through her place of work to show how ridiculously busy but competent she is.Usually she is accompanied by her work best friend/assistant who is encouraging her to be more social or open to love while said woman is handed several documents to show she's busy, drops off something thoughtful for a coworker to show she's nice, and juggling some difficult personal matter at the same time. Usually ends when her boss shows up to let her know her big break is right around the corner if she'll just double down on her efforts and she agrees to. How does she do it?!?!
- •Adorable size 2 women who are constantly eating enormous amounts of junk food.Look, I know that there are a few women who are like this for real and I have nothing against them, you just keep on doing you, loves! But for some reason this has been established as some sort of mark of adorability in female characters and I feel it's overused. Hey look at that beautiful woman inhaling cheese fries! Isn't that cute! She gets grumpy without regular doses of hot wings and milkshakes but she doesn't have an ounce of fat on her! How does she do it?!?!
- •Women who have perfectly decorated and perfectly clean homes.Sure, she's got 3 kids and a job that she's at 60 hours a week, the body of a dancer, and perfect hair, but somehow her house is always completely clean and orderly, despite the zany misadventures of her kids and a complete lack of support. How does she do it?!?!
- •Women running from/to something in heels.I am probably biased here as a woman who walks like a newborn giraffe in heels but when I see some lady sprinting in a pair of stilettos I just don't get it. She could just kick those things off and increase her speed but instead she just keeps running. How does she do it?!?!
