Feminist Comparisons

One thing that does bug me about the contemporary feminist theory is the obsessive need to compare Sex & the City and Girls because these shows supposedly represent my generation and the one 10 years younger than me respectively. You have no idea how many sources in all kinds of languages I discovered that compare these stupid shows.

I liked Sex & the City a lot but the idea that women in the show represent me or any women I know is insane. The show and its characters always looked extremely outdated to me, and it was fun to watch such antiquated ideas and behaviors on the screen. I always thought that the show was a collection of stereotypes more at home in early 1980s.

I also think that there is a big difference between “feminist” and “about women.” And people often seem to lose that distinction.
