Shakira: the Barbie movie was emasculating to a certain extent


Recommended Posts

Interesting take.....

Thoughts?

“My sons absolutely hated it. They felt that it was emasculating. And I agree, to a certain extent. I'm raising two boys. I want ‘em to feel powerful too [while] respecting women. I like pop culture when it attempts to empower women without robbing men of their possibility to be men, to also protect and provide. I believe in giving women all the tools and the trust that we can do it all without losing our essence, without losing our femininity. I think that men have a purpose in society and women have another purpose as well. We complement each other, and that complement should not be lost.”

Im a conservative anti feminist, but there was nothing emasculating about the Barbie movie. It was really fun and funny, and shouldnt be taken seriously. Its literally a barbie movie, what did her sons expect? Lol they are even too young to understand emasculating so i doubt shes telling the truth

1. I hated the movie...30 minutes in I found myself asking "what is this?" Never understood the hype around it.

2. I fully agree with Shakira on this. The feminist movement for years has taken a pretty extreme approach at wanting to be see as "equal" yet it does everything possible to simultaneously hold men accountable for their societal role. Like which is it?

I feel like they had to make it about men sucking so that people would forget Barbie perpetuated the beauty standard for women being, white, blonde hair, blue eyes and skinny for decades. Literally everyone forgot about that part. Lol

It’s a tough world out there for Shakira’s sons. The poor kids were hoping to find a male role model in the Barbie movie. What are they to do now? How are they going to become responsible, healthy young men?

Lord knows they can’t look to their dad or their mom’s poor taste in men for anything to look up to.

At least they have a lot of tax-evaded money to dry their tears with.

Clock her. The real tea here is that the men in her son's life should be setting the examples of healthy male social roles. Too bad her husband was ******* on her behind her back.

Movies and media are not responsible for raising your kids.

They also shouldn't be the foundation for your personal philosophies but social media has proven yall believe everything yall watch.

I don’t disagree. But it’s a Barbie movie so in a way I kinda expected it to be anti-men for the sole purpose of propping up Barbie.

It’s as if the only way these screenwriters know how to build and elevate their female lead characters is by emasculating their male counterparts. Unnecessary and sad.


 

Lame movie either way.
