Why do you think actors are more successful than actresses?
It seems like those who are on the most bankable actors in hollywood are overwhelmingly men. The top ten list doesn't even have one actress on it. Could it be that we enjoy watching men than women?
In this day and age, and for many decades, we have been conditioned to worship big swinging dicks, or the men we imagine have them.
Except, ironically, in porn in which we see their big swinging dicks and yet women get paid much more.
In the Golden Age of Hollywood, actresses were much more powerful presences on screen and higher paid commodities often then men.
Everything "male" or "male-identified", no matter how bad or poorly executed it is, is overvalued and everything female-identified is dismissed and/or belittled. Both men and women participate in this charade.
