My question is directed towards the critics of Mulvey's article. Do you think that people (both females and males) would be as interested in films if the scenes were from the perspective of the woman? In other words, would the film industry be successful if it portrayed men as the desired ones and women as the more dominant characters?
I know there are examples of media pieces that use this type of portrayal but I am curious why people think having the females be desirable is such a bad thing in fictional movies.
