This HYSTERICAL CollegeHumor video addresses that ‚Äúdumb double standard‚ÄĚ in the TV industry that‚Äôs got so many ladies‚Äô feathers ruffled. No, not the pay grade one ‚Ä¶ or the leading actress/actor ratio one‚Ä¶ or the one where ‚Äú30 Rock‚ÄĚ isn‚Äôt on the air anymore. (Not quite a double standard but an issue I, as a woman, have.)
These female comedians have ‚Äúa boner to pick‚ÄĚ with HBO ‚Ä¶ for not giving us the D.
It‚Äôs true! For every time we see Hannah Horvath‚Äôs tits, or Daenerys Targaryen‚Äôs tits, or Sookie Stackhouse‚Äôs‚Ä¶ yeah, still tits, we see exactly zero wieners.
Hell, the network that brought us ‚ÄúHung,‚ÄĚ a show about a man with an enormous penis, did not even have the courtesy to SHOW said enormous penis. I can guarantee that a show about a woman with a giant rack would never pan above the chest. (In this show, the rack would be a character unto itself, issuing Lizzie McGuire-style commentary to its host. [Actually, I might watch that. HBO, you know where to find me.])
‚ÄúWe‚Äôre not saying ‚Äėno more boobs,‚Äô‚ÄĚ these comedians deadpan to the camera, ‚Äúwe‚Äôre just saying you should show‚Ä¶ dongs.‚ÄĚ
This video is all kinds of brilliant for bringing attention to that stupid double standard that women don‚Äôt care about dicks the same way men expect to be shown boobs every time they turn on the TV.
‚ÄúMaybe you‚Äôre worried an erect penis would be too explicit,‚ÄĚ says one actress. But, ‚Äú‚Ä¶ Um, have you seen the red wedding?‚ÄĚ
Not to mention literally every sex scene and every commentary thereon in Girls.
So these women have a devised plan. ‚ÄúEvery minute we have to sit through this dumb double standard, you owe us an inch of grade A man-meat‚Ä¶ Or we‚Äôll stop stealing the password to our parents‚Äô HBO GO accounts.‚ÄĚ
Anyway, don‚Äôt take my word for it, watch the video below and support a woman‚Äôs right to the TV trouser snake.
