I think you’re brilliant.
Or maybe something is missing.
Are your main female characters with unbrushed hair and questionable choices in men a statement about something?
Or a lack of something to say?
At first when I watched girls I could recognize myself a little in the mistakes of Hannah. I could see how some situations might bring you into something awkward and questionable. I still feel that small little piece of myself buried in my soul where I wonder am I good enough, maybe if this one guy thinks so then I am at least for him? I don’t brush my hair, but you can’t tell. It tangles in curls and when I brush it it becomes one giant mass of an ugly poufy wave.
Would you consider yourself feminist?
That word tastes like metal in my mouth, but I believe in equality. I believe in women.
The awkward sex and drugged up nights and friends sleeping with your ex boyfriend.
Is this supposed to be a tale of truth? Or a statement of unglamorized television?
I watched Tiny Furniture and I wanted to be the wearer of the giant shoes in the photographs. I also wanted to be small enough to curl up into the tiny fake furniture and cry about how i just don’t know anything any more. And sometimes I just don’t feel like keeping up with the laundry or taking out the trash either.
Life is like a giant quarter life crisis. What am I to do next?
Move on to mid-life
Discover something great
Create a diversion
Dare to write tales of truth and reality?
I think you’re brilliant
because you’re a creator, a writer, a producer, an actress
You’re a star on paid cable television
Of course there are critics. And there are jealous twenty-somethings who think they can do better. But you’re the girl on television writing the script. You’re creating in a ways most people only dream of and it’s making an impact. People are talking.
You have a voice.
And you use it
just like every girl/ man/ person who writes in a blog, tweets, uses Facebook to share information about food politics and body language.
You have a voice that’s brilliant and a little bit off color maybe sometimes people are insulted & throw insults
Still it’s your body half naked on the television
a real woman, real body, real flesh.
And it’s feminist to present yourself as yourself, because you’re a woman.
But who cares about the term feminism, because that isn’t the point.
The point is the voice
