Oh that’s from weird science. Look up the movie. Blond is Anthony Michael Hall. I don’t remember this guys name Atm but he was the other lead guy.
This isn’t a male crop top he’s wearing either. He’s wearing the woman’s crop top from the woman they created from their computer as “the perfect woman” implying he just scored with her but I don’t remember if he did or not.
Thanks! I loved that ridiculous movie. It played a LOT on TV so I saw it a lot. Here’s their creation wearing it first. Who wore it better? Hard to say.
Growing up, I always thought “perfect 10″ women looked plastic and fake, but because she WAS created by a Barbie doll and some added features, she seemed more real. Messed with my head but it was ok.
So, friend posts this and I educate on “Weird Science” because that movie played constantly growing up and yet was an ironic use of the “crop top”.
So: has clothing gotten more or less modest? What’s changed in society? Anything? Or mostly the same?
OR: would you rather complain about George Takai?
Read it. It’s pretty standard “men socialized to idolize youth” and/or “we’re all socialized to idolize youth” stuff.That part’s not likely to change – just the grossest examples put into the criminality-bin.But I think the wiser take is abuse-of-power difference. While that’s DEFINITELY not gonna change, it broadens the scope.As far as Moore? It’s ultimately, “Dude’s a hypocrite and a creep”. That’s usually enough.
Definitely stunting. I mean, a 14 yr old boy finding 14 yr old girls attractive is expected. But if a 32 yr old man still finds 14 yr old girls attractive, they’re still mentally 14 yrs old and not looking in the mirror. Sad in a way but potentially dangerous. It’s arguably worse if they’re unaware of the extra power they yield because there’s no “stop” button. Then again, if they ARE aware and do it anyway, that’s plainly criminal.
gym clothes were weird (my soccer pic is example) — but in that movie I think, like the kitchen, they made ugly things extra ugly so the sexy bits looked sexier. More contrast. John Hughes (director of most 80s teen films) knew how to do extremes and stereotypes and make it work.
I think so. Ilan Mitchell-Smith was the sexy but almost normal nerd. Heart throb who didn’t know how good looking he was.But Anthony Michael Hall was the nerdy looking nerd – and already an established kid actor. It was good casting.
Anthony Michael Hall wasn’t actually that nerdy looking but he was a good actor and knew how to play nerds really well. He’s also one of the few kid actors who survived child acting, kept acting as a teenager and kept acting as an adult. Most of them disappear by age 12 or so and have to join normal life.
