Writers! Stop writing CRAP!
I'm left with this horrible feeling that the world has just seen a representative of the female American population as a superficial non-contributing member of the global network. She things of shopping and manicures?
Why does this bother me?
That concept began with a wordsmith, a writer. Who writes the screen play or script? A writer.
Why choose a woman perfectly dressed, every hair in place, flawless makeup. Trendy jewelry. Why not someone who gets her hands dirty? Why not someone who is busy living her life and now she has more time for the important things in life -- taking her neighbor to the cancer center for a treatment or delivering gifts to the church members at the nursing home. Or maybe bringing materials to the local school for an in-school art day where she's the visiting artist.
Why is it some Stepford Wife type of female that is the image in a Ford Focus?
