    My kid will watch Breakfast Club some day and she's gonna wonder at the unenlightened era in which it was created.

I think her generation will look at that sort of thing the way I look at Looney Tunes. The cartoons can have horrible charictures of black people, but I know that was a representation of the times, wrong then and wrong now, and not a reason to dismiss the art entirely. Sexism is going the same way, happily.

I don't know man. Look up Coal Black and De Sebben Dwarves.

Your argument does work pretty well for Long Duc Dong though.

I guess I meant I don't see sexism in the eighties as ever being viewed as badly as racial caricatures or characters like Dong.

Sorry. I'm in a coffee shop so I can't watch the video. So I really can't grok your point at all. You're agreeing? Still thought I'd clarify. I make vague statements sometimes
