James Bond Ruined Me

I grew up on Bond films and I think it severely damaged my ability to have relationships. I'm not saying it turned me into a cold womanizer or anything but it did probably help to create an insatiable thirst for the 'exotic'. Falling one after another for women from different geographies I never know if I actually care for them or if I'm simply intrigued by the new and trying to fill a cultural bingo sheet.

Yeah, I love Bond and other films shot in Europe. Ronin was a classic. When I was a kid I'd watch the French channel just to see France, even though I couldn't speak French. My biggest regret is that I waited so long to leave Canada to see these places. I did leave for 15 years to Continental Europe and Asia but regrettably had to come back. Living overseas will ruin you. Canada is terribly dull once you've lived abroad. I'd leave tomorrow if I could. I hope you got out, and you have those memories.

You blame James Bond movies for your objectification and fetishization of women of color? The man babies know no bounds.

What would James do ?

If his Mother and only friend only reason for living were deprived of his company? If while covering the same old ground he saw so many lonely souls it broke his heart in two? If he could think of little than the one love who drowned so long ago?

Has always been also true.
Women go for the intriguing tall swashbuckling wealthy spy.
How many times has a Bond been shirtless on a beach? And in real life voted sexiest man alive, on the covers of countless Cosmo and other women's magazines.

You kinda took this in a very specific, weird direction.

curious about this comment.
Are you (A) simply a man hater who attacks men trying to reflect on their behavior?
Or are you (B) a woman of color tired of being objectified?
Or are you (C) a white woman jealous of the attention women of color receive from guys like this, but unable to internalize this jealousy so instead you feel compelled to 'defend' the women of color from evil men instead?
Combinations of A,B or A,C?

There was no mention of women of coloUr

Only "different geographies".
So white or not, just different countries.
