I really love the group Women at War on Facebook. They posted this picture of Will Ferrell today and it made me laugh out loud. Does anyone know where the original photo is from? It also made me think about the articles I wrote about gender recently, so I wanted to post the picture and then discuss it a little bit.
OMG SEXISM! DOUBLE STANDARD! (well, that’s what I’m expecting to hear). However, if you can’t recognize the difference between a cheesy, obviously silly picture and a picture of a ring girl making love to the camera – then you are far too literal for me to understand and really, please move on. I was trying to think of a woman posing for this who could pose for this in a CLEARLY comedic rather than sexual shot – maybe Sherry O’Terry? Maybe Sandra Bernhardt?
Which woman, were she to pose for this photo, would elicit laughter from you?
