** Then in her video talking about [[MsFanservice Megan Fox's character]], she talks at length about how her character is (in the first film, at least) [[SincerityMode "the most well-rounded and worthwhile character in the Transformers movies"]] and has far more depth, agency, and relevance to its plot than its actual protagonist, but is most commonly just seen as a "whore" because it's all undermined by Michael Bay framing her as [[MaleGaze just a piece of eye candy]]. Calling out Bay for treating not only her character, [[RealLifeWritesThePlot but the actress herself]] as a [[DisposableLoveInterest disposable, replaceable object]] just adds to it.

\n* Lindsay's episode of The Whole Plate on male gaze in the ''Film/TransformersFilmSeries'' is strangely cathartic, since instead of tackling the [[InternetBackdraft often-hotly-debated subject]] of its relation to Creator/MichaelBay's lack of respect for women in his films, she instead goes onto discussing its relation to his lack of respect towards ''men'' as well. Specifically, she calls out how blatantly disdainful he is against his own protagonists by framing them [[LoserProtagonist as either pathetic]] [[{{Jerkass}} or just plain contemptible]], yet still in a way [[ThisLoserIsYou that's meant to be sympathetic and relatable to his own audience,]] [[ViewersAreMorons because that's how he sees them.]] It's both remarkably refreshing to hear and just ''awesome.''

* She demolishes the theory on how Beauty and Beast is about Stockholm Syndrome, while addressing an issue with Disney and their focus on heterosexuality and because people keep focusing on the damn Stockholm thing, they all miss the other factors- how society rewards bullies as long they fit a certain criteria; how otherwise decent people will dimiss or punish those who are nonconformist; and how important it has s for people can see the good in others.

* Her response to a writer's (retracted) shot at [[ObscurusLupa Lupa]] after she had reviewed several films he wrote, with zero hostility. [[http://imageshack.us/f/825/obscuralupamarksevi.png/ It's roughly half-way down.]]

-->'''Lindsay''': It reinforces a worldview that in which the only way to rebel against the system is to reject it, and it might feel good to [[Music/TheLonelyIsland throw it on the ground, and throw the rest of the cake too.]] It gives you a sense of power in a world that makes you feel powerless, but in reality the only thing it fosters is ''actual'' powerlessness, because in rejecting the system, you are not only failing to take it down, you are also forfeiting any voice within it. ''Theater/{{RENT}}'' [[CluelessAesop takes an inherently political issue and depoliticizes it to create something comforting and consumable.]] ''RENT'' [[{{Irony}} looks pretty,]] [[TitleDrop and does as little as possible.]]
