Evan Rachel Wood Criticizes New Cut Of “Charlie Countrymen” For Removing Women’s Sexual Pleasure For MPAA Ratings

  • Here’s Evan Rachel Wood’s thoughts on Twitter about a sex scene depicting women’s sexual pleasure being cut from “Charlie Countryman” in order to please the MPAA and their notoriously prudish rating system:  “After seeing the new cut of #CharlieCountryman I would like 2 share my disappointment with the MPAA, who thought it was necessary to censor a womans sexuality once again.  The scene where the two main characters make ‘love’ was altered because someone felt that seeing a man give a woman oral sex made people ‘uncomfortable’ but the scenes in which people are murdered by having their heads blown off remained intact and unaltered. … This is a symptom of a society that wants to shame women and put them down for enjoying sex, especially when (gasp) the man isn’t getting off as well! Its hard for me to believe that had the roles been reversed it still would have been cut OR had the female character been raped it would have been cut. Its time for people to GROW UP. Accept that woman are sexual beings Accept that some men like pleasuring woman. Accept that woman don’t have to just be f**ked and say thank you. We are allowed and entitled to enjoy ourselves. Its time we put our foot down. Thanks for listening.” Damn. Fucking. Straight.  [Huffington Post]
