Perform dinner jokes on the Spring Festival Gala stage
"Have you seen her remove makeup? No eyebrows!"
This sentence is not enough. The flight attendant played by Jia Bing continued to describe: "她坐我对面在吃饭，那灯一照，拿双筷子，我以为伏地魔呢！"
In the whole sketch, the word "Voldemort" appeared several times, without any preconditions, or other meanings, but simply put such a famous ugly villain on the head of a woman without makeup, and Take it for joy.
But how many people are amused?
By exaggerating the changes in the appearance of women after removing their makeup, to achieve dramatic conflicts or create jokes, we have seen enough similar segments. This is the case with the cotton-era advertisements that have been criticized by netizens before.
Advertisements in the cotton era accused of insulting women
I have to say, when I saw Ni Ni, who was repeatedly mocked by "Voldemort" and "without eyebrows", in the show, she tried her best to get back to Jia Bing, who was honest and self-proclaimed "beautiful man".我浅薄的爱情观和价值观还是遭受了一些冲击。
"Then why do you earn so much money?"
"What are you doing? Then you can't buy a bag for your girl, a mink, buy a delicious nourishment, will you satisfy your little tsundere?"
Yes, I almost read women as vanity, money worship, pretense, gluttony, and mischief.
But even so, there are still many defensive voices, saying, "Isn't that the reality?"Yes, we have indeed heard similar stereotypes in reality, but humor shouldn’t be a mechanical analogy of reality. A major function of humor is to deconstruct and satirize reality. The values behind it should be able to withstand it. Tested.
In these essays, the power of reflection brought about by humor and the irony of challenging secular concepts has not existed from the beginning. What is presented to the public is only lame parody and sarcasm.
I would like to call it a "dinner joke". As long as a few men sit together and touch a few glasses of wine, the evaluation and teasing of women can be blurted out, and arouse flattery and resonance——There is no need for any elaborate ideas, and no need to care whether the women being teased are on the same table.
If there are women who are "more real", it will destroy the atmosphere of the dinner and be unreasonable; women who have expressed the same objection to the Spring Festival Gala sketches may also be accused: "When the family is reunited, you do more!"
At the end of the sketch, there was also a scene of reunion. The conductor played by Jia Bing said: "New Year's Eve, I have gained love!"
But I want to ask, how did you get it?Or let us ask a little more realistically, what is it that such a woman with double appearance and career wants to reconcile with you?
Figure you confident?Picture your work stable?Graph your low EQ?Picture your open-mouthed humiliation and derogation?
The sketch does not provide more story background for the characters, and it is difficult for us to get answers from where the love begins. Without these foreshadowings, the characters become two empty symbols, which will only add to the stereotypes in reality.
The hot search on Weibo about sketches still only focuses on the appearance of women
Men who are humiliated by their bodies
After watching "Happiness To Spring", I was already angry. I didn’t expect that the next skit "I was urged to marry every holiday season" directly extinguished my anger, leaving only a frustrated anger. No strength to scold.
This sketch on the theme of urging marriage, borrowed the mouth of the parents to shout out a shocking couplet:
"The girl is twenty-eight this year, and one person earns money and the other spends. The next year, the girl will be twenty-nine. Just find a boyfriend. Heng criticize--"
"——Single is a dog!"
When the internet buzzword "single dog" first appeared in 2011, it was often used for self-deprecation, and then gradually developed a strong negative color.
“回家这几天，我被各方亲戚催婚了不知道多少遍，都搪塞过去了，没想到看个春晚还是没逃过。合着我们这些独自回家过年的人都是狗啦？The year of the ox is auspicious, our "dogs" are not worthy, are we?"
Compared with the skits of the Spring Festival Gala, this one has another "outstanding" feature: it also "drags men into the water".
The dragon in the sketch has a gentle personality, not outstanding appearance, and his body language always appears cramped and disturbed.As a tool person, his role in the sketch seems to be the ruthless humiliation of appearance and body humiliation by the woman's parents-"You can't come back with the whole'airbag'!" "With your'beauty','excellent' is a bit Excessive, right?"
And, when the real boyfriend played by Ren Jialun appeared brilliantly, he was reduced to being compared.
This design reminds me of previous sketches "The Goddess and the Female Man", which also compares the appearance of Jia Ling and Qu Ying.
the first,It is not your fault to be maliciously compared and humiliated.I hope you can stand with us and resist this unprovoked humiliation of individuals.
Then, you may get out of the maze of "masculinity" and realize that patriarchy oppresses all genders and all people.
In addition, this sketch that appeared on the spring evening may also convey a message that when the gender concept has stopped, when the stereotyped jokes against women have been repeatedly abused, the screenwriter’s new approach is likely to be Similar artillery fire was aimed at men.
Write at the end
After watching the two sketches, my friend was heartbroken and asked me:For the New Year, why should I watch the Spring Festival Gala to humiliate myself?
In this regard, I can only reply with an awkward smile.
Like her, I experienced the awakening of gender awareness early on. Daily surfing and making friends are based on gender-friendly appeals.Because of this, when we return to our hometown and see variety works for a more sinking audience for a long time, we are often shocked or even panicked by the huge gap in gender perspective.
Of course, we can choose not to look at all, not to see and not to worry.
But I still feel that if you want to see, you must see.
The market is complementary to the audience's feedback. If you don't read it and point out the wrong gender concept, you will only allow the Spring Festival Gala sketch to run counter to the demand for gender equality.
In this way, we will also be one step further away from a gender-friendly world.
