Here’s the thing. Men in our culture have been socialized to believe that their opinions on women’s appearance matter a lot. Not all men buy into this, of course, but many do. Some seem incapable of entertaining the notion that not everything women do with their appearance is for men to look at. This is why men’s response to women discussing stifling beauty norms is so often something like “But I actually like small boobs!” and “But I actually like my women on the heavier side, if you know what I mean!” They don’t realize that their individual opinion on women’s appearance doesn’t matter in this context, and that while it might be reassuring for some women to know that there are indeed men who find them fuckable, that’s not the point of the discussion.
I remember this episode….Disney Channel used to make sure that they played this every year during Black History Month, along with the Color of Friendship.
Back when Disney Channel was worth something.
What show is this ?
That’s So Raven. Raven applied for a job at the store, but she was rejected and when she suspected racism, she sent her best friend to pretend to apply for a job with a hat that had a hidden camera. They caught the woman saying this and sent it to the news.
Damn Disney was really onto something back then.
