Sex & The City
I really don't care for Sex And The City. I hate how unfeasable it all is, how stereotyped each of the main characters are, and how foot-like Sarah Jessica Parker's face is.
I hate how women seem to relish stating how much like one of the characters they are, and how the show seems to presume that all women in some way, fit into the boxy stereotypes portrayed by each of them.
I used to watch it but I don't actually remember which character is which. You have the main one, who is obsessed with SHOEZ AND HANDBAGZ AND FASHION! and is supposed to be some sort of base for womanhood. she's the most normal one. She spends all her money on 'omgshoes!' and writes about men all day long. She's totally weird looking yet shares none of the actual day to day paranoia most women have of thinking they look weird. She just gets on with her life and all that. Which is admirable and all, don't get me wrong, its just unrealistic. She's nothing like a regular person!
The whorey one! She just loves to have a bunch of sex with whoever. She's everyone's naughty sides!! She just takes what she wants and doesn't care what anyone thinks of her!! Except you know, she really has feeelinggsss underneath it all eventually. Even when she 'has sex like a man!' (ie, she doesn't care so much about any of the people she sleeps with) Which, if you think about it for more than 2 nanoseconds, is really insulting to men to assume that.
The meek one who JUST WANTS TO GET MARRIED AND HAVE BABIES!!! That is the entirety of her character.
The businesswoman!! Who discovers she has a womb and wants to have a bebeh because thats her womanly role. HOW WILL SHE JUGGLE CARREER AND MOTHERHOOD?! ITS THE QUESTION WE ALL FACE, LADIES!
I have issues with the show because all the characters are so one dimensional to me. You have 'regular girl' who just likes shoes and worrying about men. Great initial stereotype. Then you have businesslady/mom because thats what all businessladies worry about right??? making sure they don't waste those Harvard eggs of theirs. You have whorey lady because if a woman character is into sex in any way whatsoever it has to shape their entire personality, and you have 'I just want to marry someone and have babies' robot lady.
I don't identify with any of these freaks!!! Sure they have some similarities with me, I do like shoes I suppose. I'd never spend £400 on a pair though. But there it ends. I don't see how or why so many people really feel like it epitomises their life! Maybe other people really DO live lives like the characters in the show. I know I don't.
this is incoherent- I dont really have any structure to this, but yeah. I think that show sucks and I hate that it is admired by sensible people.
