A good show but the unequal nudity is sexist
17 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

I saw the trailer for this series and it looks promising. The show creates a realistic 1970's feel to it, and accurately portrays New York at the time. It has a gritty realism mixed with forbidden fun to it, and is interesting and engages the viewer. You see threads of several individual lives, almost like short vignettes, and how all of these different characters have their overlapping interactions in the web of the city. The fact that a sex scene or nude scene may be just around the corner, creates a sense of anticipation and keeps the viewers attention peaked. Anything can happen, from sex to violence.

A lot of credit has been given to the female director in the media, but this is just typical liberal identity politics and feminism rearing its ugly head. Although the director did a good job, the show was written and created by men, and they are at least equally responsible for its success. Furthermore, I've heard that their is a feminist agenda attached to the nudity with this show. People have said that their is a feminist agenda to show penises every time breasts are shown on some of the new cable TV series, such as The Deuce, as a step towards "gender parity". For the pilot episode, that was the case. Several penises were shown, but NO female genitalia, only breasts from the women.

Once again, we may be seeing left-wing gender politics and the sexism of feminism rearing its ugly head. Its a completely moronic assertion that the nudity shown was a step towards "gender parity". Actually, the nudity shown was VERY UNFAIR AND SEXIST! The women only showed their breasts, which is partial nudity/non-genital nudity, while the men showed full nudity/ genital nudity. How is this "parity"? That isn't equal! If the men had to show full genital nudity, then the women should have had to show full genital nudity too! Only genital nudity is equal to genital nudity. Non-genital nudity isn't equal to genital nudity.Let's try to compare apples to apples, not apples to oranges! This is so typical of the feminists. They make completely inaccurate and incorrect comparisons, and create a situation that is unequal and unfair (such as the unbalanced nudity shown in this series by the female director), and then claim its a step towards "parity and equality". Things were actually fair before on cable TV series, when women showed breasts (non-genital nudity) and men showed butts (non-genital nudity). That was fair, as neither gender very often showed actual genitalia. Then these idiot sexist feminists came along with their bullsh8t arguments and started claiming that penises (male full genital nudity) should be shown every time breasts (female partial nudity/non-genital nudity) are shown. That's completely illogical, which I suppose we should expect, since most women aren't very logical to begin with.

These liberals and Hollywood elites need to get a brain! Learn to make accurate comparisons. Every time a penis is shown, a vagina should be shown. If an erect penis is shown, then a wet, spread-open vagina should be shown. That's REAL equality- not the sexist, feminist version of "equality". This is why everybody hates dumb feminists. Either way, the nudity shown should be equal and fair. If women show non-genital nudity (breasts) then the men should show non-genital nudity (butts). If the men have to show full genital nudity (penises), then the women should spread their legs and show us their vaginas. And if an erect penis is shown (aroused male genitalia), then a wet, spread-open vulva should be shown too, (aroused female genitalia). That's REAL EQUALITY and fair treatment of the genders, but I guess these sexist-pig feminists can't handle that.

In fact, if a spread-open vagina was shown (such as a woman posing for a pornographic magazine photographer, which would make sense in this series), then HBO would probably refuse to air it and all the cry-baby feminists would claim that scene was "exploitative". We can bet the sexist female director won't show that. So far, she's only been willing to show explicit male genital nudity, NOT female genital nudity.Feminism is a croc.

So I am cautiously optimistic about this series. It seems good and is well-written, and I was looking forward to the nude scenes/sex scenes, but its directed by a FEMALE DIRECTOR and it may have a left-wing, pro-feminist agenda attached to it, which could quickly kill my interest in this series.

If the nudity continues to be one-sided and unfair, where women are only partially nude and only show non-genital nudity (boobs), and the men are being shown fully nude and exposing full genital nudity (including erect penises), then that would be so one-sided and so sexist, that I don't think I could keep watching. It would also be completely unrealistic, as its supposed to be a 1970's period drama about the porn and sex industries, and if women aren't shown fully nude, it will lose all realism and credibility. So I will watch a few more episodes and see what happens with this show. Gender politics and feminism might ruin it.
