Explanation of Conservative Trope

Certain scenes objectifying women on screen may turn people off especially these days where people are more aware of how women are objectified vs men. Enter the woman to give the screenwriter cover by writing a scene where a woman is objectified in front of the audience, but it is ok in the scene because another woman was involved.

Conservative Trope Examples

  • Catch Me If You Can (2002)
    Frank (Leonardo DiCaprio) walks by a number of bank tellers before settling on the prettiest one. He tells her that he'd "like to cash this check here, and then I'd like to take you out for a steak dinner," causing her to blush and giggle. Then she shows Frank how the bank manages the checks that come through and holds a check up to her breasts, but pulls it away as Frank moves his finger to touch the check, but winds up grazing her breast instead.
