From the Jezebel article…She’s supposed to be a writer too, but your belief in that won’t outlast Wilde scampering naked through hotel corridors once Neeson playfully locks her out of his room. With that tush, who’d need to be literate? Who’d want to?
Wait, people still use the word “tush” these days?? Not only does GQ make themselves out to be an ignorant company when it comes to sexism, they’ve also proven their ability to revert back to dated phrases that morons use daily who sit in their comfy chair in a tank top, with a remote control in one hand, and a beer in the other.
These are Tom Carson’s words, over at GQ, when reviewing the film “Third Person” which pits Wilde as an aspiring writer that gets stuck in a series of troublesome events involving three couples in Rome. I haven’t seen, nor had I heard of it until now.
Thankfully, Olivia Wilde responds in the best way possible…
Arbitrary standards of beauty and intelligence can’t be one and the same, huh? It’s unbelievable how many times I’ve seen, and heard, women accused of being defined by their looks simply because they like to dress nice. What are your thoughts, dear readers? How should one be measured when it comes to looks and intelligence? Or should they be? Why do you think this arbitrary notion that beautiful people wouldn’t want, or even need, to pursue a life of excellence in literacy and/or academia?
