I was kind of hoping you would reply with "oh lol, wait -- that would be kind of like blaming video games for violence!" Mostly because it is. madster's got a point. I kind of thought that he was going to go with "women insisting on being treated equal? just smack 'em a bit, and that'll learn 'em." ...Anyway..... You say you don't blame film entirely, yet you're so sure that it has a significant role in this alleged increase. What makes it too coincidental? I'm not entirely sure that I believe your claim to begin with, so please specify where you're talking about. I mean, if you're speaking globally, well, that's problematic. Also, risen from what? Do you think that the movies are somehow triggers for people who are predisposed to sexual aggressiveness? Someone just watches a movie and goes oh dude, sweeeeeet, and goes out and does his/her thing? I remain unconvinced. I'm going to say that it's the movement against these kinds of films that encourages people to be rebellious and say a giant fuck you by going out and reproducing the films in reality. Does that still count?
