Beware, males of all ages -- Hollywood is out to get you. That's the message being delivered on Fox & Friends this morning. Co-host Steve Doocy set up the segment this way.
Doocy: It is being called the Frozen effect No I'm not talking about the latest winter storm. Are movies like the Disney smash hit about an ice queen and her sister empowering girls by turning our men into fools and villains.
Cue the C&L laugh track. With an intro like that you know the only guests they could have on had to be from the anti-feminist, draconian group called Concerned Women Of America. Enter CEO Penny Young Nance to flesh out this Hollywood plot to wussify American males.
“Hollywood in general has often sent the message that men are stupid, in the way, and if they contribute anything to the family, it’s a paycheck,” Nance said. “The question for us as moms is when we bring our daughters to see Frozen, or whatever the movie is, we often have our little boys sitting there, and is this message helpful? We want them to know that they’re essential. We want to raise heroes. We want to raise real men that will stick in their families and be great dads and be great providers and great husbands.”
I think she hears messages in her toast. OMG, save all those little boys that were devastated after viewing "Frozen" Wait, that never happened, except in Penny's mind. I imagine she'll start a campaign for little boys to boycott the "Frozen" sequel.
Nance then tied masculinity to the Aurora, Colo., shooting, because a man covered his girlfriend during the shooting. “We don’t have to empower women at the cost of tearing down men,” she said. “We want to raise real men. We want to encourage masculinity, not villainize masculinity.”“It would be nice for Hollywood to have more male figures in those kinds of movies,” Doocy agreed.
I thought Hollywood was emasculating men, but she gives us a prime example of a man in Colorado acting chivalrous and all - just like a hero. Has she been to the movies lately? Let's see what movies we've had the last two years that make men out to be fools.
Captain America, Guardians of The Galaxy, Taken 3, Non-Stop, X-Men, The Maze Runner, American Sniper, Iron Man 3, Man Of Steel, Star Trek, World War Z, The Hobbits, etc...
I think it's safe to say that men have nothing to worry about. Maybe Penny will be able to browbeat the MPAA into adding with a warning label on the film: "BBLF".
Beware, you boys who are made to look foolish.
