Reading the writeup on Crocolisk, I can't believe some people got upset when the winner of the beauty contest was beaten up, stripped down, and promised as spoils to the victor of the final match. What clods.Seriously though, that vignette wrecked the movie for me. It was stomach-turning, and cast a misogynist pall over the rest of the production. Yvanka's shameful defense on the Crocolisk blog of, "It wasn't rape! Don't take it so seriously." is almost worse. It doesn't matter that Adelah says she was comfortable with the event (and the attention!). The only time women show up in the movie, and it's to be degraded, defeated, and shown as literal sex objects.I find it hard to believe that I'm the only one who was put off by this.

Should I email the girl you're trying to get to sleep with you so she can read your comment and see how cultured and sensitive you are? It might help you out, cause girls don't usually go for men who can't distinguish 2008 in America from a freaking video game.

lol @ whiteknighting. Females will let you know when they feel objectified. You just piss us off with your sensitive act while you think you're championing womens rights.

Huh. I didn't think it was cultured, sensitive, white knighty, or championing women's rights to find a scene of sexual slavery distasteful. I thought it was human.Thanks for correcting me, Internet!

@Moo MoneyI've had someone very, very close to me be a victim of rape. Does my speaking out against misogyny and the needless portrayal of violence against women an example of "white knighting"? Does it also mean women should not voice an opinion against violence towards males?
