The misogyny has been toned down considerably around the Dalton era, but yeah, it’s because of it that the older Bond movies, particularly the Connery era, have not aged well in that regard.
Don’t forget casual racism.
Yeah. Jesus Christ, scenes like him hitting women definitely haven’t aged well. Then again, that was the 1960s, and was a product of the times, but it’s still aged like milk.
On that note, seeing some of the Bond girls, Honey from Dr. No for example, having little to no character and being half-naked most of the time, made me quite uncomfortable, and even offended me a little bit.
But girls like Vesper from Casino Royale are good Bond girls because they have good character and barely show their body.
Even still, Bond still hit women like Tracy, one of the best Bond girls, so…
P.S. I know I talked about it before, but I was to whiny to get my point across.
