May 27 - Happy Meryl Streep Day!
I watch movies and I don’t care who is the protagonist, I feel what that guy is feeling. You know, if it’s Tom Cruise leaping over a building I, I want to make it, you know? And I’m going to, yes, I made it. And yeah, so I get that.
And I’ve grown up, well, partly because there weren’t great girls’ literature. Nancy Drew maybe. But there weren’t things. So there was Huck Finn and Spin and Marty. The boys’ characters were interesting and you lived through them when you’re watching it. You know, you’re not aware of it but you’re following the action of the film through the body of the protagonist.
You know, you feel what he feels when he jumps, when he leaps, when he wins, when he loses. And I think I just took it for granted that, you know, we can all do that. But it became obvious to me that men don’t live through the female characters.
“men don’t live through the female characters” - the realities of living in a andro-centric society…
When I heard my name I could hear in my head half of American going ‘OH, GOD. HER. AGAIN.’ But WHATEVER.
We were in Greece, we danced, I was gay, we were happy.
EVERYBODY GO HOME. THE QUEEN HAS ARRIVED.

You just have to do what you think is good and keep slugging it out and trying. You just have to keep your dream. If you lose it and get cynical, you die.
