Is Ladette To Lady Celebrating Women’s Violence Against Women?
In an article in the Sydney Morning Herald about the increase in female aggression, it claims shows like Ladette To Lady actually celebrate female violence.
The article states:
And Channel Nine making its own version of Ladette To Lady signifies violence by women against women not only deserves less condemnation than violence by men, but is almost something to be celebrated. The program pretends to try to turn them good, but it’s really just showcasing such behaviour.
In the Australian version, those cast tout themselves as promiscuous hard drinkers, some with a dash of violence.
Verity, 23, says: “I got kicked out of my own engagement party because I was violent and extremely intoxicated, vomiting and collapsing in front of all my extended family and also my fiance’s. They still, to this day, judge me on that.”
Another contestant, Melissa, says she hopes to find her identity, which raises the question: what on earth are these young women aspiring to be?
Do you agree, or do you think Ladette To Ladies is trying to show just how appalling the behaviour is?
