Not for girls and women only: Well done documentary- worth seeing-
26 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this documentary. It was intelligent, had humor and passion. The sad thing to me is that the young women today who are embracing the word slut, unlike the older feminists who rejected these negative stereotypes, appear to be practicing some kind of in your face Stockholm syndrome. Embracing language that puts us down, reduces us to our bodies and sexuality is, in my opinion, masochistic and self-destructive. But maybe I think this because I've been a therapist for over twenty years and have seen the deadliness of this language. On the other end of the spectrum, it's hard for me to understand women accepting the word "lady", i.e. "Lady Fests". I've been told it's converting the word into something new and different. But it still sounds like the same old "lady" to me with all it's stifling limitations and straight jacket restrictions to our humanity.
