Rewriting the Rules of Sex (A Group Project)

I had a thought recently, after reading the story about Aziz Ansari’s really bad date. Well, I actually had many thoughts, such as:
“OH NO! Not Tom Haverford!”
Or, “Why would a famous guy pressure someone? Why wouldn’t he just move on?”
And, “Oh girl, I’ve been there. I bet he even did the head-push, didn’t he?”

We, as a society, are having so many revelations right now, about men and women and how we interact. The one thing that’s coming across loud and clear though, is this:

Sicario is about an anti-drug-cartel task force and stars Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin. Emily Blunt is at the heart of it all, playing an FBI Agent who is drafted into the group. When I saw Blunt’s name attached to Sicario, my first thought was, “What is SHE doing here?” I asked the same question about her role in Edge of Tomorrow though, and Blunt absolutely killed it in that movie.
