SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT

So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time?  Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.

I will never not reblog this

"…but teenagers have no reason to be stressed."

When I was in grade 3 the new teacher gave us 4 + hours of homework every night.

I remember yelling at her and running from class and just wanting to kill myself for falling behind.

I’m officially naming this award season “the year stars stopped giving a fuck”

Far be it for me to dispute Cate Blanchett, or the larger point she’s making, but the guys are all wearing the same thing.  If the camera were to do that to the guys, it’d just be black pants over… and over…. and over…

I agree. In this particular case, it’s apples and oranges. Tuxes versus gowns. Photocopies versus unique work. Perhaps their real foul was not running the shot by her before hand.

I would like to point out, though, the salacious nature of the slow pan up a woman’s body. In this particular case, detail isn’t usually put on the hem of a dress (because no one wants to see hand beading or embroidery get dirty or ripped out by an errant stiletto), and a full-body shot would be better to showcase the drape and design of these beautiful gowns like in the fashion plate glossies. Starting at the bottom and slowly panning up dehumanizes women because you don’t see their faces until you’ve seen the rest of their bodies. Their identities don’t matter.

That’s a really good point, thank you.
