Blog: Are these Vancouver's 'Girls in a Nutshell'?
I'll make this known right away – because I know the photos below, created by blogger The Demi Perspective, will be considered gender stereotyping/objectification by someone, somewhere – and ask you to view this as comedy, because that's what it is. View it like a Chris Rock joke about the song 'Get Low' by Lil John.
The photos above and below – which showcase the personalities we already know these seven neighbourhoods and their civilians by – are (not) surprisingly accurate. I'm not quite sure I understand the meaning behind the 'Gastown' caption below, but I assume it's alluding to an over-priced area with cobblestone streets. The 'Kitsilano' girl above... she just looks comfy.
Here's the full photo, also detailing Demi's Perspective on women from Main Street, English Bay, the Granville strip, and Gastown:
For the sake of comedy and introspection, I'll agree with VanCity Buzz:
"Now it would be great to see another one for the men in the city."
I wouldn't like to see one for men just so it evens the genders out... frankly, I just want to know what we look like.
(And, being that I personally live in White Rock, I'd love to know what I'm supposed to look like when I drive 60 minutes and pretend its worth it.)
Vancouver is a stereotyped city, and one that appears eager to live up to them even when it's offended by the suggestion that its people could be so predictable.
Take the video below, for example:
