This forum is for discussion of film with a focus on feminist critiques. Though film is the main focus, discussions of feminist and other feminist related issues [race, aids, poverty, gender] in media are accepted.

Any post that relates to the world of film and the concepts of feminism is acceptable, whether that be a review of a new film, a deconstruction of an older film, film recommendations, or any essay or article related feminism in media.

Please try to keep posts constructive.

Free speech is encouraged, but because this is a feminist space, we do not brook sexist, homophobic, racist, transphobic, classist, and inflammatory, hateful comments, nor personal attacks. Free speech does not mean that you can come in here looking for a fight with impunity; therefore, trolls and nuisances should be reported to the moderators, who will take the appropriate measures.

Please post film spoilers, triggering material and heavy-loading images behind <lj-cut> . If you do not know what a LJ-cut tag is, this should help you out. Use the proper warnings. Off-topic posts will be deleted ruthlessly. Please do not "TyPe LiEk DiS" or any other clever variation of basic grammar rules gratuitously. We have sporks, and we're not afraid to use them.

Here is a site with information about Sophistry. Avoid using logical and rhetorical fallacies; faulty reasoning. We're not going to fall for them.

Here is a link about feminist film theory.
