HUH? Wall St Journal Now Asking Thelma & Louise for Economic Advice

By Debbie Schlussel

The print edition of today’s Wall Street Journal features a section on its “CEO Council,” a gathering in which the Journal assembled “nearly 100 chief executives of large companies” to discuss major issues facing business, government, and the economy.  And one of those “chief executives of large companies” was  . . . has-been, left-wing actress Geena Davis?  Huh?

Of what “large company” is Davis a chief executive?  None.  But she founded a silly feminist non-profit organization, the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, to whine that women don’t get enough equal time on TV.  I’m not sure which TV she’s talking about, since there are plenty of shows, from every girl show on Nickelodeon to “Cougartown” to the various Kardashian shows to “Jersey Shore” to “Revenge” to “The Good Wife,” to the various “Law and Order” shows all over TV, all dominated by women.  And I’m also not sure how she gets that women don’t have equal time, since most shows feature either absentee fathers or–when they are present–dads who are louts, incompetent, stupid, and cheating.  But the vacant Davis complains, “We are showing kids a really almost ’50s version of society.”  Really?  If only.  Hey, wasn’t she on some dumb, failed show about the first female President? Didn’t it get canceled after just a few episodes because no one wanted to watch this man-hater pipe dream?  Also, I guess she missed that movie called, “Thelma and Louise” (even though she poorly acted in it) . . . and all the unbelievable female superhero and kick-butt movies after that.

I’ve written about Davis and her dumb organization before (here and here). The name of the group has changed from the “See Jane Foundation,” but the BS is the same.  It’s sad that the Wall Street Journal presents this moronette girl power pimp as some sort of major American business leader.  But here’s her discussion with the Wall Street Journal and the CEOs of what she sees as THE major problem facing our country and economy today, which goes to show how out of touch these Hollywood bims truly are–worse than we’ve earlier diagnosed, with no cure in sight:

Everybody knows that in Hollywood, there are fewer interesting parts for women, and female characters are sexualized a lot. But what I didn’t know until I had a daughter and started watching G-rated movies with her was that we are showing kids a really almost ’50s version of society where there are far fewer female characters, and the ones that are there are highly stereotyped. They don’t get to do very much. They’re very much hypersexualized.

The first study we did on G-rated movies covered a 15-year span. We found that for every one female character, there are three male characters. In crowd scenes, there’s only 17% female characters, which is very strange.

We just completed a study on the occupations in G-rated movies and found that 80% of the jobs are held by male characters. And of the women who hold jobs, there are no scientists, medical professionals, lawyers, politicians, business executives.

Clearly, we’re transmitting a very disempowering and negative message about girls to kids.

What?! This woman is clearly an idiot. The majority of students in colleges and grad schools, medical schools, business schools, and law schools are WOMEN. Women earn more than men across America, when it comes to the same education and other credentials.  Women are hired to the majority of spots in science, math, and engineering in academia.  And those most affected by this bad economy and losing more of their jobs are MEN.  Helloooooo . . .? Women couldn’t be more empowered.

Just ask any mother of young boys, who has to field endless aggressive, predatory phone calls and chasing from girls after their sons. Girls are more empowered than ever. And guys are now the chicks.

But if Geena Davis admitted to this troubling set of truths, she wouldn’t have anything to do these days. She’s not getting any acting jobs, and it has nothing to do with age. In fact, older women like Helen Mirren and Judi Dench, are getting plenty of acting work. But unlike Davis, they can actually act.

No-one believes Davis’ silly, dated feminist con job? Or do they?

Seems like every movie I see nowadays has some 100 lb female tossing a 200 lb male around as if he were a loaf of bread.

No, I don’t believe it. Please don’t mention the Kartrashians. I’m trying to get those hos out of my mind. Thank you. That is all.

Geena Davis is a woman? I thought she was a tranny

I just flipped through all the channels on my TV to do a little impromptu experiment testing her theory.

Virtually every channel had more females on screen than males.


Try it yourselves guys.

How much money is
Gene Davis collecting from this foundation? Most foundations

Jonathan E. Grant on November 21, 2011 at 3:59 pm

I wish that America was like “Mad Men.” Too bad it isn’t. America was a much better country back then, for all its flaws. It bears repeating: no matriarchy has ever survived. And our enemies aren’t running around emasculating men and empowering women. Geena Davis has no idea how the real world works and life isn’t a Hollywood movie.

    that’s precisely why
    she was the perfect one
    to portray hillary

You know that Liberals control the media when Feminism is still taken seriously in 2011. If a TRUE non-biased media were able to present things as they are, Feminism would have been laughed out of the public debate waaaaaaaay back in the early 90’s.

Feminism is the biggest farce on the planet. I resent every one of them (feminists) because they remind me of Jesse Hi-Jackson and weirdo Al Sharpton. They are all so disgusting they never want to see what they (supposedly) fight against die…because they would stop them from making $$$ fake-fighting for what they supposedly hate. And men have become wimps because of their disingenuous shenanigans! This is hurting our society.

Feminists are at their most sucky right now. They are a bunch of mental-defective freaks. They have an inability to see it’s not men who hold some women back but WOMEN themselves.

Feminism is a mental disorder!!!

(And the most RIDICULOUS so-called feminist in the news I have seen other than that beast Gloria Allred is Warren Beatty’s and Annette Benings transexual “son” (born a female) who said Chaz Bono is a misogynist! Liberalism (and transexualism) is such a mental disorder that they now go after each other! Either that or their narcissism is OOC (out of control!)

A lib is a lib is a lib. There may well be more blinders worn by Democrats than there are by race horses.

Uh, where’d “share” button for your articles go?

L: It’s coming back shortly. We are doing maintenance on the site and had to remove it briefly, but will put it back up soon. DS

Lance on November 22, 2011 at 12:30 pm

Lance… Debbie’s technical support noticed the site this past weekend kept getting redirected. That’s one of the problems that’s now been fixed.

NormanF on November 22, 2011 at 7:24 pm

Debbie, you have more brains and intelligence than Geena and other femi-nista actresses combined!

Kurt Toy on November 23, 2011 at 11:34 am

So Geena needs a job and a tax write off?

Did she count the male and female ; puppies,kitties,snowmen,smurfs and ponies in the movies too ? I really hate to see smurf racism,anti-kittyism and female neglect it cartoons.

gylfa on November 23, 2011 at 1:48 pm

oh i get it. you don’t like her, since she has an arabic husband. seriously, shouldn’t we work to empower our sons and daughters? especially, what with all the messages they get from the media.
