“Killing us softly” is a documentary talking about the horrific sexual objectification and unrealistic beauty standards that can be viewed in media advertisements everywhere. Images of women being tied up, silenced, beaten. Images of women who are sickly thin. It makes me think about all of the young women who are suffering from eating disorders, and that these advertisements are playing a role to encourage this sort of behavior. All of the ads degrading women. Simplifying us down to an ass and pair of tits. Mindless creatures to be looked upon but never heard. This is truly infuriating.
Yeah, it’s a bit dated but still drives in a good point.
