A producer is tweeting all of the terrible, sexist descriptions of female characters he reads in actual screenplays. Producer Ross Putman started a new twitter account—@femscriptintros—that logs all the ridiculous descriptions he finds in real scripts.

In every tweet, he has changed the female character's name to Jane, but has otherwise left the description verbatim. Surprising no one, most are laughably focused on the character's looks.

Others convey the treacherous toll that being a just living "an actual life" can take on a woman's beauty.

Others are hiding their beauty behind professionalism or drab clothes. But just wait until that part of the script where they take off their glasses and let down their hair, or where they have to go undercover at a fancy gala to learn more about a crime!

This Twitter account pairs nicely with Some Lady Parts, a project from NYC-based actress Katrina Day that posts misogynistic casting calls.
