Casting Call for Photoshoot*:
Description: Thin, thin, thin (THIN) females to play:
Wardrobe: Dark, scruffy clothing. Dirty hair. Dark eye make-up.
*This is a non-union, non-paying job. NB. There will be no food or water on site.
Seriously? Serious. Wow. A=B=C? All the same. Right. That’s what I thought.
Sometimes I just want to point my wand at the whole thing and say “Riddikulus” and watch the whole industry turn into a big spider on rollerskates.
NB. Alhough I took out the specific details of the above casting call, all words, phrasings, and the ridiculous sterotyping used in the above are taken from an actual casting call. I shouldn’t be surprised, but I still feel horrified.
