The BBC showed a fantastic series recently called The Fall. It starred Gillian Anderson. Yes, she of The X Files fame.
Looking the epitome of a fantastic forty-something woman, her character tore her male counterparts to shreds with her analytical tongue.
Whilst dealing with a serial murderer, it also looked at the different attitudes for men and women of the one night stand.
Her character, DSI Stella Gibson agreed with a community where there is a woman matriarch who runs the show and there is no such thing as marriage. Women choose who they want to sleep with and are able to have a one night stand – or sweet night – to propogate the species with the male of her choice. This rather fits with the post that I wrote recently about the females of other species who don’t stay monogoamous.
There were a couple of great quotes that highlighted the issues men have with powerful, sexual women.
Man Fucks Women – Man is the subject, Fucks is the verb and Women is the object.
Woman Fucks Man – Suddenly man is the object and all men seem to have a problem dealing with that scenario.
“Did you know that he was married when he spent the night in your bed?” “No, he didn’t think to tell me. And, as I recall, you too were married when you spent the night in my bed”
I would definitely advise that you rent this series or find it online.
