It seems that every time I come onto this site I encounter misogyny. The last time I was here there was a comment on another thread about how women want to dominated. For personal reasons I found this very upsetting. I didn't comment on it at the time because I couldn't figure out whether or not the commentor was being fascetious and, like many people, I have a fear of being percieved as a humourless, strident feminist.

Now, I come here after a week's absence and one of then first comments I see judges the quality of the film by the gender of its presumed audience.

Personally, I've never been drawn to the sort of movies deemed chick flicks, but since some critisms of evolution use false accusations about Darwin's personal life, there is perhaps some utility in film like ths.
