Sydney Sweeney: Will we ever stop objectifying her?

Sydney Sweeney She is beautiful. It is one way traditional, which is so popular with men who want to start a family, who dream of blond, light-eyed American women who will give them milk-white children. Sydney Sweeney is busty, perfectly fits Western standards and has no problem stripping down for her projects – achieving international fame thanks to Euphoriaa romantic comedy starring Anyone but you, has achieved what some would call surprising success – and knows exactly how to play with sensuality. For this reason, it will be forever objectifiedand even from programs that pride themselves on being progressive.

Sydney Sweeney on Saturday Night Live

The actress born in 1997 was one of the hosts Saturday night life, which has always boasted a team of great writers with their finger on the pulse of the situation, who are inspired not only by the characters of their guests, but also by American and international current events. However, everything (or almost everything) that was written for her fell into stereotypes. In the stereotypes of the sexy and stupid blonde, in the stereotypes of the beautiful, lively and cute girl who only has male fans. Any examples? A sketch in which the actress plays a Hooters waitress – an American restaurant chain where workers are forced to wear skimpy uniforms and whose very name echoes a slang term for women’s breasts – and is surprised by the fact that despite the incompetence, the tips still flow. i wonder why. It is not for the first time. In fact, when Dakota Johnson hosted SNL, the joke was similar, if less blatant. “It’s me and Sydney Sweeney in this movie,” the actress said, “it’s almost like an artificial intelligence created your friends’ favorite movie.”

Obviously we have to stand here and repeat over and over again that this type of comedy – which traps women in ideas misogynistic, sexist and patriarchal not only their bodies, but their minds – is outdated and harmful, and that offers help to the types of men far worse than the writers of SNL, who then take to social media to talk about Sydney Sweeney and other women in far worse tones, but feel supported and somehow authorized by them: it’s herd mentality. That a group of male writers still only write these kinds of jokes for the women they work with is disheartening and also lazy, a betrayal of a concept of entertainment that quite definitively marks (as if there was any doubt) a period of one man’s decadence. from the pillars of overseas television. It’s a shame that certain ideas and communication styles and all the ways we think of women as sexual, passive and smiling objects or dolls will not come with their downfall.

Sydney Sweeney is so much more

No need to defend Sydney Sweeney, but we want to do it anyway. Not necessarily just for her, but also and above all for other women who – although they are also very beautiful and kind and smiling as if it’s a problem – have things to say, passions that go beyond their work or who show themselves to be very smart from a business and work point of view as well, and who have to fight a doppelgänger to be heard men of power who just can’t do it go beyond the neckline. Actress from Euphoriafor example he loves restore veterans, and a while back he did a special profile showing all his work in the garage. She rededicated herself body and soul to a project she believed in: the project Immaculatea horror film that will see the light at the end of March that was abandoned before Sweeney took over the script and sold it to Neon and deciding on its production. Not bad, right?

Sydney Sweeney’s response to Carol Baum

Now, and last but not least, also the manufacturer Carol Baum expressed his opinion about her, saying: “I wanted to understand who she is and why everyone is talking about her. I saw this unwatchable movie, a romantic comedy in which the protagonists hate each other. I don’t understand. She’s not pretty, she can’t acting, why is everyone talking about it, I even asked my students to explain it to me.” Actress he decided to answer this time, through her team, she stated: “I find it sad that a woman who is able to share her skills and experience would choose to attack another woman. If this is what she has learned in her decades of professional involvement in the film industry and believes, that it’s appropriate to teach it to your students, it’s just disgraceful to so unfairly blame another producer, it says a lot about her character.”
