An Open Letter to Modern Family
I just don't get it.
Why has the once Brilliant Modern Family fallen
into the Disney trap with how it handles relationships
of it's teen/20 something actors and actresses.
Nearly every Disney movie or TV show will do the
same, Modern family was different though, well
different early on and in the seasons 3-5.
What I'm talking about is what they deem to be success
for a young male and for a female in search of love.
Luke and Manny are nerds, they arent attractive, yet it
would appear they always get the hot girl, and the hot girl
is always good for them, the stories are written like, this
is what success should be for a young teen male.
Yet the two main young female actresses, well success for
them is to not to date the hot guy, but to infact date way way
below their league.
So why is Modern family doing this? Why are they falling
into the kinda creepy Disney trap of making boys being more
successful and making success about how good looking your
girlfriend is, but doing the exact opposite for the girls?
Can someone tell me? Or am I reading too much into it??
Are the male writers living out some sort of unfulfilled fantasy?
Just think about it, there is no way Modern Family will have Luke or
Manny dating a girl that is unattractive, but they have no problem
with Hayley or Alex dating a boy that is unattractive?
Is this some sort of weird sexism???
Personally I think its kinda ruin the show.
