“If I were to create a ratings system, I wouldn’t even put murder right at the top of the chief offenses. I would put rape right at the top of the chief offenses, and the assault against women. Because it’s so insanely overused and insulting how much it’s overused in movies as a plot device: a woman in peril. That, to me, is offensive. Yet that shit skates.”
 —Kevin Smith, This Film is Not Yet Rated

I have complicated feelings about Kevin Smith, but I adore him because he’ll stand up & say stuff like this.
