Netflix' Tall Girl - starts September 13
There has been so much talk in the media (online and offline) about the new Netflix series "Tall Girl". So far I have withstood the pressure to write about it or post articles on this website. Even though tallwomen.org would, of course, be the right place to do it.
According to IMDb "Jodi, the tallest girl in her high school, has always felt uncomfortable in her own skin. But after years of slouching, being made fun of, and avoiding attention at all costs, Jodi finally decides to find the confidence to stand tall."
That's not something that would give me negative thoughts about the series. But it seems a little shallow.
On the other hand I read reviews like this one: "I can't believe Netflix decided tall white girls are a minority that need representation ASAP" – People on the internet are reacting to Netflix's Tall Girl movie trailer and viewers are divided.
As usual in this day and age race suddenly becomes a factor. Tall girls in general are having problems. I know that very well. So why play the race card? It comes as no surprise to me that young people these days need safe spaces. This is not a safe space, so deal with it.
Let's just say I'm not going to watch the series. Mainly because I don't have Netflix, but also because I don't do teenage drama. Are you going to watch it? What are your thoughts? Let us know by using the "Add comment" link below.
