Sexist Movie & TV Titles

Conservative Trope Examples
- "Knocked Up" is a disrespectful term used to describe pregnant women.
- "Tomcat" is a positive term for men who pursue women just for sex which is problematic as women are relegated to being "sexual conquests," and also because all terms for when women do this are negative (which we won't bother listed here as you know what we are talking about).
- "The Cleaning Lady" title helps perpetuate the idea that housecleaning services are always women which also helps to perpetuate the idea of a household that many social conservatives believe in which women should stay at home, take care of the children, cook and clean.
- Buying the Cow refers to the sexist phrase, "why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?" which is about bachelors breaking their pact to never get married.
